Funko’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Line Brings All the Boys to the Yard — But Just the Boys
Funko's had its hand in just about every major license on the planet since its wildly successful and lucrative Funko Pop vinyl figures became a hit. So it should come as no surprise to learn Funko has a whole range of Avengers: Age of Ultron collectibles planned.
In standard Funko fashion, you can expect to find Pop! vinyls of all your favorite Avengers... provided of course that they're the male members of the team. Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Hawkeye (and his ridiculous trenchcoat) will all be available this March. Joining them for the first time will be Ultron and the Vision, with a very atypical magenta and grey color scheme.
You'll notice that there's no Black Widow included. That's par for the course when it comes to Marvel movie Funko figures. Widow has only gotten one Funko (for Captain America: The Winter Soldier) despite appearing in just as many movies as Thor, more movies than Hawkeye, and being the only woman on the Avengers roster. Scarlet Witch is also absent, though the lack of a figure for her twin brother Quicksilver slightly lessens the frustration of her exclusion.
All is not lost for Natalia though, as she will be available this March in Funko's Age of Ultron Mystery Minis. You know, the collectibles randomly inserted into blind boxes, all of which you have a different percentage of actually acquiring? While we don't know the distribution rates of all the characters just yet, there are 11 male characters (two of which are Iron Man) to one Black Widow. Again, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are given the short straws.
There will also be Pocket Pop keychains in March, featuring the leading men of Marvel's next big movie, as well as Fabrikations (Funko's soft sculptures) this April of Iron Man, Cap, Hulk and Thor. It's worth noting that none of the characters appear to be thrilled about their cloth dispositions. They're awful serious for a bunch of stuffed super-heroes. Additionally, Funko will release a box set of mini Wacky Wobblers in March with the same roster.
You can get a better look at all the products in the gallery below. All of the collectibles are currently available for pre-order at online retailers such as Big Bad Toy Store. The Pop vinyls will retail for $9.99 each. The Pocket Pop keychains are $5.99 each. The Fabrikations are $19.99 each. The Mystery Minis will be available for $6.99 each, or $69.99 for a case. The set of mini Wacky Wobblers will retail for $24.99.
