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.

Moderated by Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President of Original Series, Disney Television Animation brought the creative teams and talent from popular series ‘Fish Hooks’ and the upcoming ‘Wander Over Yonder’ to its panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but it was newcomer ‘Gravity Falls’ that quickly dominated the show, as evidenced by the roar of the attending audience at its mere mention, let alone the number of fans dressed as characters from the cartoon.
In anticipation of the stop-motion full-length remake of Tim Burton’s classic short, Frankenweenie, Walt Disney Studios has erected a mobile touring exhibit titled ‘The Art of Frankenweenie‘ which treats visitors to a rare, inside look at how the film was made. One of the first stops on the world tour is San Diego Comic-Con and we were invited by Walt Disney Studios to be one of the first to preview the exhibit which was hosted by film producers Don Hahn and Allison Abbate. Talent from the film, including Atticus Shaffer (of ABC’s ‘The Middle’ and voice of Edgar Gore) also passed through the exhibit to see the displays of props, puppets and concept art.
A unique booth at Comic Con 2012 will showcase the world of “The Neighbors,” a new comedy series coming to ABC this fall.

Con goers who stop by the booth will also get a sneak peek at the new series. The booth will be open during Exhibit Floor hours: from 6:00-9:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 11, for Preview Night; from 9:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Thursday, July 12 through Saturday, July 14; and from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 15.
