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!

We take another trip down to a sandy place, no not that place! It is of course the Aladdin Funko Dorbz!
Luckily this time there are no exclusives involved, as i’m sure you may remember Jasmine and Abu were both Walmart exclusives. Though they were pretty easy to find surprisingly! That may just be me. I will definitely be getting all 4 of these guys, if i can .. as two of them may be slightly tricky to obtain. Of course you could just go to eBay, but where’s the fun in that? Certainly not fun for your wallet. My favorite from this line is probably the Genie Jafar, they’re pretty cool all in red. Rajah is a close second as they’re pretty cute!
There is something in this line that has never been seen before, and that is that Jafar is limited to 4,000 pieces. So far it has only really been Hot Topic limiting their Dorbz, but i guess that strategy has been working so well Funko has started their own limitations. And this is only the start! I’ve seen a few more Dorbz coming from Funko that will be limited, it’s not surprising really as people jump on these like crazy. Some Dorbz don’t sell 4,000 in their lifetime and end up in clearance, but giving it a sticker that says it’s limited makes people go crazy for it. So you go from .. clearance isle .. to selling out in seconds. What are your thoughts? Glam shots and info coming up!

Yes i’m sure you’re thinking, how many Disney exclusives does Hot Topic have? The answer to that is, a lot. Not that i mind too much, if anyone’s going to have them it’s […]
