Funko Gets Metallic TMNT, Bloody TWD And Oozing AvP For SDCC 2013
You'll have to pardon the acronym-heavy headline, but there's just no avoiding it when trying to communicate Funko's San Diego Comic-Con 2013 exclusive Pop! Vinyl toys. Arriving at the convention this July at Funko booth 5343 will be four metallic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, two blood-splattered The Walking Dead characters, plus both an Aliens Xenomorph and a Predator leaking green blood.
The TMNT assortment, of course, includes Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo in a metallic mode so glorious it may make Shredder jealous. For now it seems as though this is the closest fans will get to a Pop! Vinyl Metalhead, although that could always change.
The Walking Dead TV series variants include blood-splattered versions of protagonist Rick Grimes and a Prison Guard Walker. Unlike the Alien and Predator figures, their blood is all kindsa' red.
Funko has plans to reveal two more exclusive Pop! Vinyl figures a week until SDCC arrives on July 17, meaning fans should expect to see more variants from a swath of pop culture properties at Funko and other partnering vendors' booths. Personally, I'm crossing my fingers for clear and/or glow-in-the-dark everything.
Official pricing info hasn't been revealed yet, but SDCC attendees can expect to pay around $15 a piece for these if previous releases are any indication.
