Earlier today, Entertainment Earth opened up pre-orders for its Funko Hikari Sofubi Vintage Mickey Mouse, which is limited to just 500 pieces. The Vintage Mickey Mouse is actually the fourth variant produced in the line and each previous version (black and white, original/traditional colors and gold glitter — another EE exclusive) have sold out rapidly.
After launching and maintaining its Marvel-specific Collectors Corps subscription program, Funko has announced its debut of a Star Wars specific program, titled ‘Smugglers Bounty,’ which is now accepting orders for its November launch at SmugglersBounty.com.
The annual program will consist of bi-monthly packages (6 per year) and is available on both an annual subscription ($150) as well as per-shipment subscription ($25). Each box promises $50 in value of exclusive Star Wars and Funko merchandise. Like with the Collectors Corp, those signing up for the annual program will receive an exclusive gift.
The new figures, which feature Anna and Elsa alongside snowgies is already available for pre-order from some vendors such as Entertainment Earth. Anna is available for pre-order here while Elsa is available for pre-order here.
At the International Toy Fair in New York City, Funko has previewed its upcoming line of merchandise in support of Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland (May 22, 2015). The line consists of Pop! Vinyls, Re-Action figures and reproductions of the Tomorrowland pins featured in the film.
The Pop! side consists of Young Frank Walker, Frank Walker and David Nix; meanwhile the Re-Action series includes all these figures plus Athena, Dave Clark and Casey Newton. A full gallery of what Funko had on display is below:
Funko has shared product images of its upcoming Frozen Series 2 available in February 2015. The series includes Anna and Elsa in both young versions as well as coronation versions, plus ‘summer Olaf.’
In addition, Funko will also be releasing Frozen Mystery Minis — also in February — and has even provided us with a distribution chart for the variants, with a happy Marshmallow being among the rarest (and frozen Anna a close second).
Our friends at Entertainment Earth have graciously informed us that they are now accepting pre-orders for the fabulous Big Hero 6 series of POP! Vinyl collectibles from Funko. The series consists of GoGo Tomago, Honey Lemon, Wasabi (No-Ginger), Fred and — of course — Hiro. Also being released are extra large 6″ versions of Baymax in both mech and a special ‘pearlescent’ nurse version. Most of the figures are set to be released in October with the pearlescent Baymax in November/December.

Listed with a shipping date of December 2014, our friends at Entertainment Earth have informed us that they are now accepting pre-orders for the baby Dancing Groot Pop! — which is incidentally being billed as the first official baby dancing Groot toy — as well as the Howard the Duck Pop!, both of which are billed as part of the Guardians of the Galaxy series.
With the standard versions of the Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven Pop! Vinyl figures by Funko already announced (and available for pre-order from Amazon), several exclusive variants were announced today for the die-hard Frozen fan and Pop! collectors.
Funko has officially announced its licensed versions of Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven in Pop! Vinyl form from Walt Disney Animation Studio’s popular film, Frozen. The quintet (each available separately) is expected to be available at retailers in July. All of the figures are currently now available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth.
A spokesperson for Funko says she was unable at this time to respond to inquiries regarding the availability of a Pop! version of Hans, nor regarding any potential exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), however hints officially released by Funko are believed to point to possible variants such as a glow-in-the-dark Olaf and/or a ‘frozen’ variant of Anna.
Disney Consumer Products and Funko have graciously allowed us to share this first look at an upcoming San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive: the Disney/Pixar Brave ‘Merida Pop! Dress Color Metallic’ variant figure from the Disney Pop! Vinyl collection.
Limited to an edition size of 480 pieces, Merida will be available at Funko’s booth (#5343) at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con from Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21 while supplies last. She will retail for $15.
Merida will be one of many Comic-Con exclusives from Funko which feature Disney favorites as well as other popular characters and franchises. For more information, as well as the opportunity for a chance to win some of Funko’s SDCC exclusives, visit their official Facebook and Twitter pages.
