You say that you collect Funko POP! Vinyl figures? Well, you are not alone in this world. Funko has taken over the world, releasing vinyl figures for almost every imaginable franchise in the known world. The big mystery is how they are able to keep grabbing the licenses for all the franchise they have in their catalogs. From Disney to A Nightmare on Elm Street, there is a figure for that. It just never ends.
The only thing that rivals Funko’s obsession with acquiring licenses are the collectors who search far-and-wide for the rarest of POP! figures. Funko announced its newest run of POP! figures for 2017 at the UK Toy Fair yesterday, and there are some amazing franchises coming soon. Here are just a few of the new lines coming out this year.
Parks and Recreation
You’re saying that you love the hit sitcom Parks and Recreation? Well, there is a POP! for that.
In a surprise turn, Funko is bringing us figures for some of our most-beloved cartoons of the 90’s. From CatDog and Rugrats, all the way to Aaahh! Real Monsters, you’re gonna need more shelf space.
Have you been living under a rock? Funko is bring the plush toys out to compliment their POP! figures. It’s Morphin’ Time!
Batman: The Animated Series and the DC TV Universe
Funko’s bringing the Big Black Bat Universe to its mystery mini series. From the DC television universe to Batman: The Animated Series these minis will be a must-have!
Were you lost while you watched the CW series Alias? You were not alone, but the show has a huge cult following, and now a toy line as well.
Mr. Robot is the newest hit show out now. Why would you not want a few figures from the show to go with all that binge-watching you are doing.
The show is coming back to your television screens after being gone for too long. Get lost in the mystery of Twin Peaks, and not only is Funko bring us a full vinyl figure line for the show, but they are also making action figures as well.
Is the show not enough? Did you not receive your ticket to board the ARK? Well, at least you can let them populate your desk or bookshelf as well.
Teen Wolf looks better as a POP! Vinyl!
Lord of the Rings
This is the first time that The Lord of the Rings is getting the Vinyl treatment from Funko. There are some great figures in here, including dirty-face Gandalf and Ring-sick Frodo. Get them while you can.
Ghost in the Shell
This is not a run of figures from the anime, rather it is a kick-ass series of movie figures!
These figures are straight from the upcoming sequel, Mass Effect: Andromeda, to the original Mass Effect game series. They are detailed, and look really good.
Mystery Science Theater 3000
This is a show that I grew up with, so you can bet that I will have my very own Tom and Crow when they hit store shelves!
These figures are coming straight from Blizzard’s surprise hit shooter Overwatch! Your shelf could always use some more Heroes.
We may not be getting a sequel to the 1996 hit movie. These Space Jam vinyls are sure to be a slam dunk to add into your collection.
This is only a small fraction of the new POP!s hitting shelves this year. Check out the rest of them on Funko’s blog.[io9]
