New York Comic Con 2017! Funko Reveal Part 12!

Welcome to the final reveal for this years convention with the New York Comic Con 2017 Funko Reveal Part 12! Joining us today is Freddy Funko and some of his friends!

Well Funko says this will be the last announcement regarding exclusives, but it’s not un heard of that they will reveal something special later on. Anyone hoping for a bonus item? I hope so! Many were expecting some DC TV exclusives that were promised by Funko some time ago, but it seems they didn’t make an appearance. There are plenty of other exclusives not mentioned though, for instance Fugitive Toys have 3 exclusives that weren’t officially announced by Funko. Also you may find some exclusive POP Asia figures at the convention, perhaps if you check out the POP Life booth! Hint. Other notes are that Toys R Us is planning on releasing their Black and White Bloody Negan POP, along with Baby Groot holding a Bomb on October the 5th so those 2 may make an appearance at the con.

But what about the figures?! Well we have two Freddy Funko’s joining us here, and 2 of his friends. Well that is what Funko calls them! Joining Freddy is Bone Daddy which some old school Funko collectors may know of. He is one of their original creations that they are slowing introducing back into their fold, so possibly exciting news for fans of their old releases. Also there is a leprechaun from the General Mills cereal Lucky Charms! Not something we had back in England but i’ve been told over here it is quite popular, what do you say?

As for our Freddy’s there will be a celebration of New York’s most famous landmark, Freddy in the form of the Statue of Liberty! This is a pretty cool POP i have to say, they even made it green which is true to life but not its original color. Next to him is Freddy in his baseball outfit, a blue and white pinstripe number that looks very fancy. Worth noting that all 4 figures here are coming in limited numbers, but .. with numbers so high i wouldn’t worry too much. You’ll just have to make sure you get in there early, i hope! But good luck to those who want the limited and or non shared figures. Glam shots and info coming up!

New York Comic Con 2017! Funko Reveal Part 9!

Today’s New York Comic Con 2017 Funko Reveal Part 9 welcomes you to the land of Warner Brothers, love them or hate them we have some fun items!

We have two sections here i suppose, the films and the animation. There’s kind of a crossover between Hanna Barbera and Warner Brothers as they merged later into HB’s life, though i would still call shows like Wacky Racers more HB than WB. But honestly i’m not the hugest fan of WB as of late, though that’s mainly to do with their games department. They’ve messed a lot of things up in that world, though some may say they’ve done the same in the film world. What’s that? Did someone say Suicide Squad? I liked that film, i wasn’t expecting it to be an oscar winning masterpiece but it was fun. Wonder Woman was even better, so i’m confident they will do well with Justice League. What are your thoughts?

Warner Brothers always have some of my most wanted POPs, because they are in control of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and so on .. and those are always must haves! I’m liking Gellert Grindewald but .. it was a shame about him in the film (Spoilers for those who haven’t seen it). Because Colin Farrell did an awesome job in that characters role, and at the end they just say .. oh it’s Johnny Depp in another oddball character role. I’m sure it’ll turn out well, but it wasn’t the best ending. My wife had to tell me the meaning of Boggart as Snape as she’s the huge Harry Potter fan here, this one is her personal favorite and of course i will be getting it for her (Shhh don’t tell her!).

Aside from that we have some fun animated characters, everyone has a different experience with kids shows and especially Hanna Barbera. What is one persons favorite, the next person may never have heard of because they had so many shows. My wife has never heard of Wacky Races which seems crazy to me! That was one of my favorite childhood shows back in England, definitely a classic for me. So it’s nice to see another racer in here, someday i hope to see the whole line up available! Regardless, if i had to choose a favorite from everything you see below, it would have to be Luna in her Lion Headress Rock Candy. She is one of the cutest Rock Candys ever! They did the face really well, i hope it’s as good in person. What are your loves and hates here? I wonder, glam shots and info coming up!

New York Comic Con 2017! Funko Reveal Part 7!

Ready for your next his of exclusive goodness? Well take a look at today’s New York Comic Con 2017 Funko Reveal Part 7!

The theme here has been named “Video Games” in honor of National Video Game Day! Yes there seems to be such a thing, was anyone here more in the know? I wonder. A quick Google search revealed that yes September the 12th is National Video Game Day, did you get together with some friends to celebrate? I hope so. Play some games in my honor, being so busy lately i’ve barely had time to play any games sadly. My current game of choice is Fallout 4, i’ve done pretty much everything except for Nuka World plus! Getting all the achievements .. which is something i like to do.

Regardless we have three different things in this wave, the classic game Dig Dug, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location (with this many games it’s more like 5 years at Freddy’s!) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. FNAF interests me quite a bit, this POP that is .. i mean it’s a Television! How different can you get from the typical POP, and different is what i like. I mean i’ve been wanting them to do a props series for a while now, this seems like a step in the right direction. Secondly there is Dig Dug, the classic Atari game from 1982, hm .. i can see what they are doing here. How many classic games could they turn into 8 Bit POPs? Something tells me this is only the beginning.

Lastly there is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or .. if you live in Europe where i’m from you may know them as the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles. Yes the word Ninja was thought of as taboo so they replaced it with hero instead, luckily that craziness is no more! Judging by the colors of the Foot Soldiers i’m going to say this is based on SNES 1992 game Turtles in Time, they have every foot soldier from that game except the Pink and Green soldiers. What no love for Pink? Shame! (Learn more about the video game Foot Soldiers by clicking here!) Feel free to let me know what you love and or hate about this line up in the comments below, glam shots and info coming up!

New York Comic Con 2017! Funko Reveal Part 6!

Welcome to the New York Comic Con 2017 Funko Reveal Part 6, what do we have for you this time? Well some excitement from the land of Disney!

Always a popular subject, of course, it is Disney after all. Disney has roots in almost everything, it’s one of the few companies that truly everyone knows about. Add to that they own both Marvel and Star Wars now, you can’t get away from the hand of Disney. But the majority of love comes from the original Disney classics, Nostalgia is a powerful thing and with how amazing those classics were they are pretty much timeless. I know for one i’m certainly enjoying the live action remakes of each film, hearing the songs again with a new setting is very fun. What are your thoughts?

We have some fun exclusives here today, especially Kingdom Hearts! For me that is as i’m a very big fan of that game, and Final Fantasy is my favorite game series ever. So bringing Disney and Final Fantasy together? What is there not to love. Sora and friends are coming soon, but to tide us over we have Halloween town Donald and Goofy. How awesome are these? The POPs do a great job capturing the likeness from the game, all the details are there. A must have for me, along with possibly Scrooge, who doesn’t have the famous gold swimming scene engraved into their mind? I have no idea! Can’t wait to see that one in person.

Others on show are Vincent and Maximilian from the classic Disney film “Black Hole”, i say classic because it’s old really as i have no idea about that film! Anyone here seen it? I wonder, everything has fans and i’m sure those fans are happy to see these. Who else do we have? Well there’s a Mini Hikari 2 pack of Mickey Mouse, hm .. perhaps the only Mini Hikari’s i’ve actually liked. These seem to be a light red and yellow version of the other set being released in November (Click me!), the red and black ones look awesome. The rest are from the Disney Parks. A flocked version of both the Abominable Snowman and Orange bird tail behind Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride Dorbz Ride. These are where we see our first limited numbers for NYCC! I’d keep an eye out for them all, but especially the flocked Parks POPs as they’re going to be the hottest item in demand here for sure. Glam shots and info coming up!

New York Comic Con 2017! Funko Reveal Part 5!

Feast your eyes on the New York Comic Con 2017 Funko Reveal Part 5! This time we get a selection from our favorite TV shows!

Not those shows! Oh no, well yes it’s these shows. Some will love them and some will hate them, but it’s a good selection i think. There are those who had been waiting for some DC TV reveals such as Arrow and The Flash, Funko said they would come for NYCC so i’m guessing we’ll have to wait a bit longer for those. Regardless with this line we’re seeing that number get ever higher, into the 500’s now. The television line is one of the biggest alongside the Movies line, it even used to include animated shows too! Good thing they split those off into their own section or things would be getting pretty crazy. What will they do once the number hits 1,000 hm .. end of the world perhaps?

It’s pretty clear that the Stranger Things products will be the most popular, that show has become somewhat of a hit .. he says with enthusiasm. But me personally i’m looking forward to the Buffy 2 pack! No matter how many years it’s been i’m in no doubt there’s still a huge Buffy following out there, who’s with me? Anyone out there? I loved Faith in the show so i’m very excited about that one. Also seems we’re finally getting some other Doctors from the hit UK show, this time the first doctor who is sadly no longer with us (William Hartnell). Speaking of those who are no longer with us we have Jim from Trollhunters, his character was voiced by the late Anton Yelchin who you may know from the Star Trek reboot. As for the POP itself the red armor is rather fetching i must say!

With this line we have the first incarnations of Toy Tokyo’s exclusives with the Land of the Lost’s Enik and Sleestak, before you ask no i don’t know who those characters are! Someone who is familiar with 70’s and 80’s US TV can probably fill you in on those characters. So what is your favorite from this latest reveal? Did you experience any highs and or lows once you gazed upon these vinyl creations, feel free to let us know! Glam shots and info coming up!
