Funko Pop Unveils ‘Preacher’ Vinyl Figures With One Huge Omission

Preacher-Featured

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher is the new biggest show on televison, and its debut episode on AMC this week has everyone talking about Jesse Custer and the town of Annville, Texas. It seems all popular television shows and films these days receive a line of Funko Pop vinyl figures at some point, and Preacher is no exception, but the upcoming line of three is missing one major character.

Funko’s Latest Legion of Collectors Box Brings All Your CW Heroes Together

Funko DC Legion of Collectors

Funko's second Legion of Collectors subscription box brings all your favorite characters from DC's television universes together mostly in time for their season finales. Though Supergirl ended in April, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow are all nearing wrap dates on their respective seasons. Thus far, Funko's DC efforts have all been tied to the cinema or television worlds, and that trend will continue into the next box, which is themed around Suicide Squad. You would think eventually Funko will get around to linking these boxes to the comic universe (as they have with Marvel a few times), but perhaps it's for the best to focus on the one consistent constant in DC's stable right now and hit up the Rebirth Universe later.

For now, all we actually have is the DC TV box, and it's pretty good.

Funko’s Impopsters Line Re-imagines Batman’s Rogues as the Dark Knight

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about Funko's latest Pop figure line, Impopsters (I'm also not sure about that brand name, but what do I know?). On one hand, putting some (slightly) new spins on characters that have been around for decades is cool, and it lets Funko get a little creative with the standard form bodies they've been using to create hundreds and hundreds of collectibles. But I'm also not wild about just Batmanning the Dark Knight's rogues gallery. The concept certainly makes sense though. People love Batman and his big bads, so why not combine them into one thing?

Impopsters is just the latest in a long line of Funko's attempts to shake up the game with miniature, budget vinyl collectibles. While I wonder if this was the series of collectibles Funko alluded to in the most recent Marvel Collector Corps, I'm definitely wondering what the Marvel versions of these are going to look like. Oh, that's right. Impopsters won't just be limited this Batman series. Funko apparently has designs on the rest of the DCU and Marvel Comics, too.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ is Tearing Funko’s Marvel Collector Corps Apart

Funko Marvel Collector Corps Civil War

I'll admit, I actually forgot the Marvel Collector Corps was doing a box on Captain America: Civil War once the Women of Power box for June was announced. I just looked right past this month and was eagerly anticipating June's box and the promise of Spider-Gwen, She-Hulk and Squirrel Girl having some kind of representation inside. So imagine my surprise when this little box of Captain America goodness was dropped on my doorstep.

Funko To Release ‘Steven Universe’ Mystery Minis

Cartoon Network
Cartoon Network

Funko's domination of all things collectible has seen it expand beyond the ubiquitous Funko Pop vinyls into keychains, plush dolls and even subscription services. One of the most delightful lines that Funko produces are the Mystery Minis, blind box collectible featuring characters from the likes of The Walking Dead, Zootopia and The Avengers.

Joining the ranks of the Mystery Minis is Cartoon Network's ever popular Steven Universe and its roster of characters. The line is due out in July and features not only the main characters from the cartoons, but fan-favorites such as Greg Universe, Lapus Lazuli and Steven's pet lion, Lion.

Captain Marvel, Spider-Gwen Lead the Charge for New Marvel Funko Pops

Funko

The greatest challenge the world faces today is the overpopulation of Funko Pops. Soon we will all be outnumbered by the little plastic caricatures, and there will be no one left to stop the invading masses of collectible characters. But that's a problem for tomorrow's children's children to solve. I'll be dead by then, and right now there's a lot of Funko figures to collect.

Funko officially revealed the release window for the next wave of Marvel Pops, a few of which were teased during Toy Fair last month. Finally, Captain Marvel will be able to rally the baby bobblehead version of the Carol Corps. The unmasked version being the default means there's plenty of room for a helmeted variant down the line, too. She'll be joined by Marvel's newest leading lady du jour, Spider-Gwen. The world needs more Captain Marvel and Spider-Gwen figures. It's a plain and simple fact, and one only a handful of companies seem to recognize.

Deadpool Successfully Infiltrates Funko’s Marvel Collector Corps

Marvel Collector Corps Deadpool

Deadpool is kind of a big deal; I don't know if you've heard. He's got 127 monthly comics, a smash-hit movie, his face is all over clothes, he's got dozens of action figures, and hell, there's even a petition to have this fictional character (that isn't at all a real person) host an actual, live television variety show. That's just the power of the 'pool, baby. You can't stop this crazy train because it's already off the rails.

Funko selecting Wade Wilson to be the focal point of its latest Marvel Collector Corp box just in time to release alongside the mercenary's big screen splash was thus, a foregone conclusion. Following up the Guardians of the Galaxy box with a character as massively popular as Deadpool could also serve to get Funko back in the good graces of its subscribers. Provided its contents were strong that is.

Don’t Be Sad, Black Widow, Your Civil War Mopeez Plush is Coming Soon

Funko

Most of Funko's collectibles are all about being cute. Mopeez however rely on a bit of schadenfreude. They're sad little versions of your favorite characters, but you're supposed to get enjoyment from how adorably disappointed they are over whatever it is little stuffed characters get upset about. We've seen some Marvel and DC Mopeez before, but this next batch will actually add two of the most sought after characters to the fold with the additions of Black Widow and Black Panther.

Now the upcoming Captain America: Civil War series does include Vision and Crossbones, for reasons that will likely never make sense to me. Vision I sort of get. He's an okay guy, even if they did make him a little too OP in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Crossbones' movie costume does have a certain appeal, it's still a weird character to make a plush toy for given his roots. Also, there's no better character in this movie to fill out the box? Does anyone care about Bucky Barnes as much as Steve Rogers?

Funko’s DC Comics Subscription Service, Legion of Collectors, Coming in March

Funko
Funko

If you were wondering why there wasn't an armored Batman in Funko's recent deluge of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice collectibles, today we got the answer. Though it's been in the works for some time, Funko has only just now unveiled its DC Comics subscription service, Legion of Collectors. The very first exclusive figure included will be the armored Batman from the upcoming Warner Bros. feature film, which makes perfect sense given that the bi-monthly box will launch in March alongside that movie he stole from Superman.

The Legion of Collectors borrows a bit of its name from DC's spacefaring superteam of the future, but considering the Legion's presence in the current DC catalog, it's unlikely we'll see a Matter-Eater Lad or Saturn Girl Pop figure any time soon. This is the third subscription service from Funko launched in the last year or so, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the charge into Funko's direct-to-consumer sales. Like those other two subscriptions, everything included will be 100% exclusive. It also gives people who've subscribed to all three a new box of Funko goods every month of the year.

Funko Opens the Floodgates of Batman V Superman Collectibles

Funko
Funko

Last summer, Funko released the first of its Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice collectibles in an exclusive set at San Diego Comic-Con. For those of you who couldn't attend, and didn't want to pay exorbitant prices on the secondary market, we have good news--there are a bunch of new Funko Pops, Minis, Idolz, and bobbleheads coming. It's not really all that surprising. There was no way there was only going to be two Funko Pops for DC's biggest film of the year. At least now we know what to expect in the coming months... at least so far as the heroes are concerned.

At this point in the Funko game, you'd actually have a harder time thinking of something the company hasn't created at least one Pop for than things it has. Batman V Superman is getting the full-court press from Funko, too, with every aspect of the company's various lines getting in on the action. You want a tiny, baby Batman driving a Batmobile? You got it. Want to chew on Aquaman while thinking about what to write in your journal? Yeah, they got you covered there, too.
