Say what you will about the Pop Vinyl toy aesthetic, there is something to be admired in Funko’s ability to acquire licenses for their toys like grey goo nanomachines devouring their way across the face of the Earth. Case in point, the company announced like, a hojillion toys at the UK Toy Fair yesterday, and we want…
Even if Stranger Things wasn’t one of the biggest pop culture sensations of the years, it would be inevitable—just as the heat death of the universe is—that Funko would turn Eleven and friends into cutesy, giant-headed figurines, same as they have with almost everything else. But the Netflix show is one of the biggest…
There is seemingly no way to stop Funko from turning every franchise on the planet into a big-eyed pop vinyl army, like the gray goo apocalypse but with figurines. Their latest conquest? Spike and friends from the excellent Cowboy Bebop.
In pursuit of their plans for utter world domination, Funko has revealed their next acquisition in their Pop! Vinyl line: the new Ghostbusters.
We’ve known for a while that the delightful Steven Universe would be getting some long-awaited merchandise, and now we have our first look at it: four glorious little Pop! Vinyls from Funko. They’re so adorable, we just want to shove as many of them into our Cheeseburger Backpacks as possible.
Ever since Daredevil blew our minds earlier this year, I’ve been itching to see some merchandise based on the Man without Fear. But while fans have been making some amazing custom toys, it’s taken a while to see anything official... until now.
Funko’s Pop! Vinyl toys tend to go one of two ways: either incredibly creepy, or incredibly cute. Someohow, they’ve managed to make a toy of a giant flying ant and make it the cutest thing in the world—and then they slapped Scott Lang’s Ant-Man on top of it, and made it even better.
Here at io9, we’ve already clearly established that Steven Universe is pretty damn fantastic. But if you’re a fan of all things Crystal Gem, it’s been surprisingly hard to find merchandise based on the show—but thankfully, that won’t be the case for much longer.
Earlier this month, ThreeZero revealed they were making some beautiful, 1:6 scale figures based on the post-apocalyptic RPG series Fallout. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to “ridiculously cool/expensive toys”, these new figures might just fit the bill: A fraction of the cost, but still completely awesome.
Of all Kaiju, it’s only natural that Godzilla gets the premiere treatment. After all, he’s the most famous, and has long held the title of “King of Kaiju”. That royalty now extends to Funko’s ever-expanding line of vinyl toys, as Godzilla’s is pretty damn fantastic.
Force Friday is finally upon us! Yes, Disney and Lucasfilm have deemed today as the ultimate Star Wars consumer holiday, and unleashed a swathe of new The Force Awakens goodies to empty your wallets on. Want to get a look at the hottest toys out today? Here’s our guide, just in time for you to do your shopping.
Imagine if we lived in a world where, years later, Batman ‘66 was re-imagined by Wallace & Gromit creators Aardman Animation and turned into a stop-motion TV show. Not only that be THE BEST WORLD EVER, but I would imagine that the puppets looked just like these kooky, and slightly creepy, toys.
Sure, the Marvel Legends Phil Coulson had his own giant alien gun to blast people with, but it’s unlikely we’ll ever get to see a Lola in the same scale for him to ride around in. Good job Funko are here to provide their giant-headed Agent Coulson with a flying hot rod to ride then!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a few months away, but there’s less than a month until its Toys hit shelves across the world—and that means until then, toys will inevitably leak their way onto the internet before release. Here’s your guide to every leak so far, with rolling updates as and when they happen.
The Big Daddies of Bioshock and the word “cute” rarely go hand in hand... until now, apparently. Yes, not even the warped weirdness and Randian politics of the hit Bioshock video games. No gods or kings, only Pops.
I’ve frequently described Funko’s vast range of little Vinyl figures as a force that feels like it’s slowly consuming the entire toy world. Case in point? Our first ever look at merchandise for Batman v Superman, one of the biggest movies of 2016, and it’s of two adorably big-headed, vinyl toys of Batman and Superman.
It’s one of the more terrifying scenes in Spielberg’s thriller that made us all afraid to go in the water, and now kids can re-enact Quint’s death scene from Jaws whenever they want with this new playset from Funko.
Sure, Peggy Carter has been kicking ass and taking names since The First Avenger, but it’s taken her getting a TV show of her own to finally get some merchandise. Some of you may be displeased that it’s another Funko Pop toy, but for now, I’m going to take all the miniature Hayley Atwells I can get.
This week saw the announcement of Fallout 4 — and just in time was the announcement that Funko are continuing to somehow get their hands on every brand around, with new toys based on the franchise. Stop gathering your bottlecaps, because these little guys will be the new way we barter in the nuclear apocalypse.
I mean, after all, it’s a movie about normal people turning into tiny little people punching the everloving crap out of each other. Why not make tiny, cutesy toys out of them? If anything, Funko hasn’t gone far enough in miniaturising Scott Lang and Darren Cross.
