Via the unofficial Funko fan forum, Funko recently previewed all of its characters for its upcoming series 4 of the popular Disney POP! line. Included in this set are: Sorcerer Mickey and Chernabog from Disney’s Fantasia; Goofy and Tigger; Oogie Boogie and the Mayor from Nightmare Before Christmas; Cinderella; Evil Queen and Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; Wall*E and EVE; and Captain Jack Sparrow from The Pirates of the Caribbean.
Funko, who counts Disney Store amongst its licensors, recently teased a spin-off of its popular POP! Disney Vinyl collection on the popular fan-based FunkoFanatic forums. Here, Maleficent is seen in three different sizes (the same photo using Mickey Mouse as an example was also posted).
No timeframe for their release has been offered, but according to Funko, the mini collection will consist of only a percentage of the figures released and they will be available only as themed 2-packs (or possibly 3- and 4-packs).
As previously reported, wave three (of at least four) of the popular collectible series will be available exclusively at Disney Store beginning in January 2012.
Continuing on the popular series of vinyl collectible dolls, Funko is preparing to introduce its third series of POP! for Disney Store featuring another assortment of various Disney characters from across all of the film properties.
Series 3, which is anticipated to be released exclusively at Disney Store and DisneyStore.com in January 2012, features the Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, Elastigirl and Edna Mode from Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles, Alien and Zurg from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story, Peter Pan and Captain Hook from Peter Pan, Ariel and Ursula from The Little Mermaid and classic characters Donald Duck and Winnie the Pooh.
Inspired by series two of the popular POP! Vinyl collection by Funko for Disney Store, Disney Consumer Products is bringing two exclusives to the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California to the Disney Living Pavilion.
Pictured to the left is a 3″ flocked version of Lotso which will sell for $15 and is limited to an edition size of 480 pieces. He will be joined by a 9″ metallic Steamboat Willie, according to The Fire Wire, which will retail for $50 and limited to an edition size of 360 pieces.
Last month, we told you about a new line of vinyl collectible dolls being produced exclusively for Disney Store by Funko. The line, whose first series consists of a unique take on twelve classic Disney and Disney/Pixar toons, sees its official release tomorrow, May 30, both at Disney Store locations and DisneyStore.com.
Leveraging an existing Marvel licensing deal, Funko will be producing a line of Disney-inspired vinyl collectible dolls for its new POP! line.
