Funko Wants to Put Some Pop Back Into the Kitchen
Are you the ultimate Funko Pop fan? You know the one I mean. You're the kind of person that tracks down each and ever last Funko figure, including the special exclusive variants to ensure you've got a complete collection of the stylized characters from comic books, video games, TV, film and more. The house you live in probably has a special room where you display the pieces, either in their boxed glory, or out in the open for all to bask in the itty-bitty details. If you are that kind of fan, Funko's got some good news for you.
With the new Pop Home collection, you can now bring your fandom into the kitchen. Teased at Toy Fair earlier this year, the line made its official debut this week, and will launch in October with the first wave based solely on the Marvel license. That means anyone getting married this fall will finally be able to add all the Marvel-themed salt and pepper shakers to the registry it can handle... provided the only salt and pepper shakers they want are Spider-Man, Captain America or Iron Man.
Both Spider-Man and Symbiote Spider-Man will be offered together as shakers, which is awful confusing as Symbiote Spidey's color scheme could work for salt or pepper. The last think you want to do to your eggs first thing in the morning is accidentally pour too much salt on them. Captain America and Iron Man make up the other set, and now we know the dividing factor between the two for Civil War will be which of the basic spices is best.
If table-side spicing isn't your thing, you can always opt for one of the coffee mugs coming in this first wave. Nothing will get your day started like drinking out of the brain pan of Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man or the Hulk. All of the heads look like they were pulled right off the figures themselves, only now they also hold 12 ounces of your beverage of choice.
Considering how wide Funko's reach is for its Pop line, it shouldn't take too much longer for other licenses to find their way to the Pop Home series. The shakers will be available for $14.99 and the mugs will run you $9.99 each. If you know someone in desperate need for kitchenware, they're available for pre-order now at BigBadToyStore.
