Let the madness begin!
It’s only been in the past two years that Funko upped their website game and actually started posting news on the company portal. Prior to that, Brian Mariotti usually posted the information to the Funko Funatics boards. A few hours ago, they posted the first of their annual SDCC teasers for this year’s Comic Con. The company has eschewed the square stickers of 2014 and 2015 in favor of a “tag” design which incorporates the SDCC “eye” logo.
Without further ado, here’s Wave 1:
They start things off with a 3-pack for the movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. We see another two POPs outside the POP Rocks line with musical instruments. The only other example that comes to mind is the Gene Belcher POP carrying a keyboard.
There have actually been a number of Powerpuff Girls customs done. Interesting to note that Funko chose to include mouths on Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. It’s also stated that these are “first-to-market” so presumably, there will be a general release somewhere down the line.
Funko has been really pushing the Dorbz line lately and is going to be putting out a Vanellope Dorbz Ride exclusive.
They’ve also got a Batman Dorbz 3-pack paying homage to the Tim Burton movies.
And finally, an interesting design decision for a Green Goblin variant. It’s got a glider, yes, but it’s also translucent and glittery. Is that a good look for Mr. Osborn?
Wave 2 announcements are scheduled on June 15, 2016.
