The newest additions to the Funko’s Pop! figurine line premiered at London Toy Fair.
January 23, 2020
At London’s yearly Toy Fair, Funko released another slate of Pop! figures inspired by famous faces and characters from pop culture.
Famous faces in music including Salt-N-Peppa, Lil Wayne, Eazy-E, Frank Beard from ZZ Top, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, Rivers Cuomo from Weezer and the entirety of Slipknot made their first appearances in pop doll form. Comic book icons such as Mr. Freeze, Black Widow and more also have made appearances in the new concepts, as well as athletes like Presnel Kimpembe.
Movie franchises such as the “Harry Potter” and “Star Wars” series both have added new versions of their characters to the pop lineup, and movies such as “The Craft” made an appearance via their character figurines as well.
In addition to new Pop! dolls, new keychains and Funko Vinyl Sodas are also making their way to store shelves.
Other lines recently revealed outside of London Toy Fair include Pop! figurines for Disney’s live action “Mulan” as well as Pop! drag queens. The new lines by Funko come shortly after the unveiling of its 40,000-square-foot retail location in the Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, Calif.
