Right in time for Force Friday, Funko has released Pop! vinyl collectible figures based on the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The line features the characters Captain Phasma, Rey, Finn, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, Flametroopers, Snowtroopers, and C-3PO.
Funko and Mindstyle International have reached an agreement for a strategic alliance in greater China and southeast Asia. The new alliance will build on Funko’s existing position globally and create new growth opportunities.
Funko will retain creative, marketing, and sales responsibilities for its portfolio of iconic collectibles, which include its Wacky Wobbler Bobble-Heads, Wisecracks, Mystery Minis, and the ultra collectible Pop! Vinyl Figures. Mindstyle—a global creative, development, and manufacturing company based in China—will bring strong product development with Pop! Asia and premium product lines, local distribution, and a history of initiatives for the Asia market.
Funko will have Marvel‘s Guardians of the Galaxy–the spacefaring team coming to theaters on August 1–available in both Pop! and Wacky Wobbler form in time for the film’s release. Pop! figures will include Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Drax, and Gamora. The Wacky Wobbler figures will feature bobble-heads of Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon.
An unmasked Star-Lord will be available exclusively at amazon.com.
While The Walking Dead’s fourth season has come to an end, Funko LLC has a new set of Wacky Wobblers bobble head figures to fill the gruesome void left in viewers (which hopefully weren’t caused by zombie maws). The set features Daryl Dixon sporting his leather biker jacket and armed with a crossbow. In addition, there’s Merle Dixon in both living and walker style, the latter having the requisite bloody mouth and head wounds.
