The Adventures of Captain Underpants Funko POPs! Coming June!

Join him in his fight against Dr. Diaper and other so named enemies, it’s the Captain Underpants Funko POPs!

Here’s another one that’s had a bit of a delay, one that was prolonged in the US. This one was meant to be released across the board in April, but only just released in Europe early May. As for the USA, well as far as i can tell it’s now set for release early June so fingers crossed! Anyone here a fan of the books or looking forward to the upcoming film? I Wonder. With character names such as “Professor Pippy Pee-Pee Poopypants” or “Sir Stinks A Lot” i think you can grasp the tone of the book, and yes it’s very popular with kids. We revealed the concept art for two of the characters back in February (Click here to see), but with this reveal we now have the added FYE Exclusive Professor Poopypants! Now that is a fun one to ask your local FYE employees for. Glam shots and info coining up!

Middle Earth Tales. Lord of the Rings Funko POPs! Coming June!

Does one simply walk into Mordor? Probably not, but you may get a little further with these guys by your side, it is the Lord of the Rings Funko POPs of course!

It’s very exciting news that we’re finally getting some more Lord of the Rings POPs, i mean the only one that existed before these was Sauron. Why out of the 3 films did they just do Sauron? I have no idea, they did a few more for the Hobbit line but even that was a long time ago. As a big LOTR fan it’s a great thing to see, i’ll probably be trying to grab all of these! What about you? Are they missing any of your favorite characters, i wonder. We first showed the concept art of these as part of the London Toy Fair back in early February (which you can see by clicking here), if you saw that article you may be thinking two are missing. You would be right in that! The Twilight Wringwraith and Invisible Frodo are both now exclusives, so we will post info about those soon!

I’ve said so before but my favorite from this line up definitely has to be the 6″ Balrog figure, what do you think? He’s just an awesome character with some great detail. They also modeled Gandalf after that classic scene, so if you get both you can re-create it! The Chase in this instance is of Frodo after he gets stabbed by the Morgul blade, his eyes and skin changes as he goes into the Wraith world. Another must have i think. The last two items are the Pocket POP Keychains of Frodo and Gandalf (which haven’t really changed since the original preview), Frodo is the same as the POP mold but it seems from the shot that Gandalf is holding is weapons slightly differently. Glam shots and info coming up!

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Funko POPs! Coming Soon!

A classic Stephen King book is now turning into a feature film, it’s been a long time coming for Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Funko POPs!

Welcome to part 27 of our New York Toy Fair series, chronicling all the revelations Funko has made during the 2017 event.

I’ll say for now these are both Book and Movie POPs, though i’m guessing they will be in the movies line. They are clearly releasing only because of the film, and the POPs are based on their actor counterparts. The Gunslinger will be played by Idris Elba and the Man in Black will be played by Matthew McConaughey, definitely good picks! With such great actors i’m expecting this film to be quite something .. i hope at least. What are your thoughts? Anyone read the book or looking forward to this film. The premise seems interesting, though the whole post apocalyptic thing has been done many times by now. We will see in time i suppose! On another note it’s funny there’s another Man in Black, that certainly seems to be a go to name. If you may remember, one of the main characters in Westworld is also called that. Glam shots and info coming up!

Shall You Pass? Lord of the Rings Funko Concept Art! POPs Coming 2017!

Update: Full glam shots have been released, click here!

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!

The Adventures of Captain Underpants Funko Concept Art! POPs Coming 2017!

Update: Full glam shots and exclusives have been revealed, click here to see!

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!
