Enter the world of Power, Grace, Wisdom and Wonder with the now released Exclusive Wonder Woman Funko POPs!
I’m sure like many you’re excited about the upcoming release of the newest addition to the DC Universe (me included), it is of course Wonder Woman! Coming to a screen near you on June the 2nd if you’re in the US, though if you live elsewhere in the world you may have already seen it. Early impressions seem to be quite good, though the Shanghai and eastern market do have quite different tastes so we will see! Also it just so happens that it is releasing on my birthday, perhaps i will be there on release day or .. maybe i will wait for a less crowded day which is usually best.
We have links at the end of the article if you want to see the regular non exclusive POPs and Rock Candy, but this article will fill you in on every exclusive that has been or will be released. Including the Legion of Collectors Box! So don’t continue if you haven’t received or opened yours yet (though you should have by now!). Each figure below i have linked either to the product page, or the article here detailing all the info and links you need to buy them. The majority still have plenty in stock! Though some pre-orders have sold out such as the Entertainment Earth one, but that will be everywhere after release so don’t worry.
What is your favorite from the line? I wonder. For me it’s hard to say, i do love her in her full armor and especially the Rock Candy which would usually win it for me. But i have to pick the GameStop exclusive Diana in her blue dress which is a gorgeous POP that i already own luckily, it’s very striking and i can say the same for Gal Gadot in that section of the film! Glam shots and info coming up!

Prepare for season two of the surprise hit Netflix show with these upcoming Stranger Things Funko Pocket POPs!
Are you a fan of the show? Well probably .. it seems most people are. Though feel free to comment regardless, i’m sure there’s someone who isn’t a huge fan out there somewhere! It’s not too long now until Season 2 is out, this year they’re releasing it on October the 31st. What’s that .. on Halloween? Oh my very spooky, surely just a coincidence. No doubt closer to the time there will be plenty of advertisements coming out linking it with the trick or treating holiday, i think if i remember correctly they are wearing costumes in the trailer too.
That’s not all that’s coming out, Funko is planning on releasing wave 2 of the Stranger Things Funko POPs as well though that’s information for another day. Here we’re talking about the Pocket POPs, these are all from wave 1 and just smaller version of the POPs so nothing new to see here. One thing of note is that Hot Topic does have an exclusive of Eleven with her wig on, feel free to click the link below to learn all about that one! Glam shots and info coming up!

Simpsons reference aside go back in time with some classic figures with the upcoming Planet of the Apes Funko Dorbz!
You may be forgiven for thinking of the new Planet of the Apes film that’s coming out soon (War for the Planet of the Apes) which is the 3rd in that series surprisingly, i enjoyed the first two but i didn’t know it would span 3 films. Regardless these Dorbz are based on the original Planet of the Apes film that was released back in 1968, yes it was really that long ago! And what’s this, no Dr. Zaius? Well that is surprising, perhaps they will release him as an exclusive, we’ll have to wait and see.
I don’t think they did the best job differentiating between Cornelius and Zira, if you inspect their Dorbz figures you may notice they are hard to even tell apart. They could of perhaps done with a little extra touches or accessories to help in that situation, what are your thoughts? On the same note Zira is the second in the no doubt long line of limited Dorbz, these are Dorbz that just have a general limit across all stores rather than an exclusive limit like Hot Topics. I don’t think it’s the most amazing figure, but placing that sticker on it makes it sell out fast so grab her if you want her. Glam shots and info coming up!

You may need a few friends when entering the wasteland, and who better than the upcoming Borderlands Wave 2 Funko POPs!
We saw concept work on these POPs back in March and today we finally get to see the full glam shots, and luckily they look as awesome as i’d hoped. I have a slight fondness for Borderlands, i’ve only played the first game though and that certainly wasn’t to completion. Mainly because there’s just so many games and so little time, especially when you get older! But the whole style, cell shaded graphics and all definitely appeals to me.
Aside from the design as a whole you have characters like Lilith and Mad Moxxi who are just awesome, i’ve said before but my favorite from this line in particular is Tiny Tina. She has a great design on her, from the mask off to the side, and the little bunny which is all very cute. Also the head on Zer0 is pretty cool, the big digitized zero on their head is pretty striking. The one POP in this line that wasn’t mentioned before is the Commando Claptrap who’s exclusive to GameStop, if you click the link below you’ll see all the details on purchasing him. Glam shots and info coming up!

Remember your favorite characters and don’t let them be long forgotten with the upcoming The Walking Dead In Memoriam Funko Mystery Minis!
This is the second time (as far as i know) that Funko have done an In Memoriam set of Mystery Minis. The main premise is they take all the dead characters from a show, then create a Mystery Mini of them but in Grey Scale with a small bit of color (usually the reds) added in. I guess for those who haven’t watched up until the latest episodes this could very well contain spoilers, so don’t look if you’re not ready! I’m mostly caught up, i’ve seen all but the latest season which i’ve got behind in due to the amount of TV there is that i want to watch. I doubt i could spoil it for myself, i mean i don’t even recognize most of the characters down below!
There seems to be a total of 20 Minis in the image below, which is quite a lot for a set. It makes me wonder if they’re going to do exclusives with this line or just make a bunch of them really hard to find, i’m sure you’ve had experience with the 1/72 Mystery Minis and what a nightmare to get they are. Hot Topic seems to always have the main exclusives for the Walking Dead so i’ll keep an eye out there, but we’ll know more closer to the release date. Glam shots and info coming up!

Welcome in some more of your wrestling favorites with the now released WWE Wave 3 Funko POPs!
And where would a new line up of POPs be without the mandatory Chases and Exclusives? Well nowhere of course. It seems for this round they have chosen Finn Balor to take both the Chase and the Exclusive, some variance would be good but i have to admit the Finn Balor figures do look pretty awesome. I mean i’m not really into wrestling as a whole, but i will probably grab him. When i first revealed the POP of Goldberg i was asking people to guess who he was, and a couple of people guessed Gillberg! That’s hm .. kind of close?
I do have a slight fondness for the Mick Foley POP, he was first announced by his daughter (Noelle Foley). He seems like a really nice person, and his daughter strangely enough collector POPs! I watched a few videos on her new YouTube channel, she’s a bit wacky but clearly a big Funko fan. I’ve left a link below for the FYE exclusive as he’s on sale now, the link takes you to the article with all the info you need to grab him if you so wish. Glam shots and info coming up!

Elektra and Punisher join your favorite hero of Hells Kitchen with the now released Daredevil Wave 2 Funko POPs!
I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of these guys, well Punisher especially. Though these days anything that has a Chase variant is really at the forefront of any news, people were only talking about Punisher. Really that’s only for two reason, you firstly have people who are trying to grab any Chase they can to re-sell for a profit, and secondly you have those who want the figure and want to avoid having to resort to eBay. Chases can cause some adverse reactions in some collectors, there has been stories recently of people fighting over and destroying Chases if they can’t have them for themselves so as you can imagine there’s a few issues there.
Regardless this line of POPs is one of my favorite in recent times, there are so many generic lines of POPs is good when you have a whole line that has interesting colors, features and accessories. From the three Elektra is probably my favorite of the line, though i do have a preference for female POPs so there’s some bias there! Daredevils outfit is awesome though, from remembering the series Elektra wasn’t wearing her outfit throughout much of the show but she would be a bit generic without it. One comment that has been made about the Punisher Chase is that the Daredevil helmet he’s holding is way too small, i’m sure you might notice POP heads are quite a bit bigger than usual! Glam shots and info coming up!
