Welcome to part 4 of the San Diego Comic Con 2017 Funko reveals, this time the theme is that of Animation (Or cartoons if you prefer!) With 3 different shows on offer!
It seems the 2 pack (Ren & Stimpy) that was leaked last week was correct, as we now have that confirmed as an SDCC exclusive. Those POPs are from a classic episode of the Ren & Stimpy show (Feel free to click here to see it!), definitely a must when considering variants to do of those crazy guys. It’s a shame Stimpy doesn’t look too different from the original POP, unlike Ren, but there’s not too much they could of done there as that’s how it is in the show! Also can confirm that the antenna on Rens head is metallic gold, which is a nice added touch.
Also down below we have Baxter Stockman, took me a few minutes to remember him. But now he comes to mind he was fairly prominent in the original show, definitely going to be a hit with anyone who grey up with the turtles on their screen. Probably not for me though, so i will probably pass on him! Skip forward to a year from now when he becomes the rarest POP from this year, kidding. As none below are limited i’m going to say all of this wave is also going to be shared with stores.
One i may have to get though is the Flocked CatDog POP! I still don’t have the original version which i already want, but now they’re making them flocked that just makes them even more desirable, though you do have to be careful of dust when displaying your flocked POPs out of the box so keep that in mind! And lastly there are the South Park POPs, “The Coon” and “Mint-Berry Crunch. These surprised me, well mainly The Coon as from the show it is a play on a racist slur so i wasn’t expecting them to do this one! I do like Mint Berry Crunch though, never saw the episode but .. that’s a fairly interesting POP design, sadly POPs aren’t edible.
So what are your thoughts on the fourth wave of POPs? As every year this year will have more SDCC exclusives than ever, at least 50 i would say. My favorite wave so far is the Scott Pilgrim set! Feel free to air any opinions you have on the subject, glam shots and info coming up!
