The new branded collections will include Funko’s galactic plushies featuring Rick, Morty, Mr. Poopy Butthole and Mr. Meeseeks; mystery minis featuring 12 characters from the series; pocket pop! keychains featuring Rick, Morty and Mr. Meeseeks; and an expanded lineup of “Rick and Morty” vinyl figures including a Weaponized Rick, Weaponized Morty, Mr. Meeseeks, Mr. Poopy Butthole, Bird Person, Squanchy and Snowball.
The company will also release the brand's first fully-posable, articulated action figure line. Each character in the 5-piece collection–Rick, Morty, Mr. Poopy Butthole, Mr. Meeseeks and Bird Person–will also include a bonus piece that will allow fans to build their own Snowball figure.
A host of additional products, ranging from roleplay toys to novelty housewares and home décor, as well as apparel and accessories, are also included in the partnership and will begin rolling out later this year.
Funko’s new “Rick and Morty” timelines are set to begin rolling out this April and May.
