How long does it take to walk from Bag’s End to Mt. Doom? Find out with the upcoming POPs with the Lord of the Rings Funko Concept Art!
Welcome to part 26 of our London Toy Fair series!
Well to say these will be popular is a understatement, it’s pretty certain that the many concept art you see below is only a small amount of what will be coming. It’s been a long time since Funko originally released the LOTR POPs and they’ve changed their practice’s a lot since then, even the Hobbit films were quite some time ago. I for one am very excited about the prospect! The concept work we have already looks awesome, so it’s hard to pick a favorite. Frodo is an iconic character, the translucent POPs are very cool but i think i have to pick out Balrog for this one. Not only is he a 6 inch POP but it seems he will have a fair amount of detail, and we can’t forget the fire whip!
What are your thoughts about this upcoming line, who are you excited for and who else should they add? Are they missing your favorite character. At the time of writing this people are going crazy trying to get the Chase Eleven POP from Stranger Things, but it does seem Frodo will have a Chase version. I’m already dreading to think how hard it will be to get that, but who knows, maybe Funko will just flood the market with LOTR POPs. We shall see! Concept art and info coming up!

Start and end the week with these upcoming POPs, check out the Workaholics Funko Concept Art!
Welcome to part 25 of our London Toy Fair series!
Here we have 4 guys from a semi popular sitcom in the USA called “Workaholics”, as far as i can remember i think i watched the first few episodes some years ago. It wasn’t too bad, but then again it wasn’t great which is why i stopped watching. Feel free to comment if you disagree! What are your thoughts on this line? As with many POPs from movies and television, it has the generic guy issue. Again they’re great for customs, but unless you really knew the show they could really be any guy. Regardless, they did as good of a job as they could! From what i remember (and seen online through google) they have got their likenesses spot on. So i’m sure fans of the show will be intrigued by these at least! Concept shots and info coming up!

Face off against Dr. Diaper with the upcoming POPs! Take a gander at the Captain Underpants Funko Concept Art!
Welcome to part 24 of our London Toy Fair series!
With names like Professor Poopypants and Dr. Diaper you could say there is a certain theme with this line, though i’d never heard about it before. Apparently it’s based on a children’s book that was first released back in 1997 and has had numerous sequels, even a film is in the works. The majority of the characters have similar sounds names, another is Captain Blunderpants. It seems to be mainly USA based, so that could be why i’ve never heard of it! I’m sure they will be popular with kids, know that particular brand of humor is always a hit with them. Does anyone who has read these books feel nostalgia towards it? Feel free to say! Nostalgia is another big selling point. I’m sure there’s others who know more about the books than i. Concept shots and info coming up!
