Final NYCC Exclusive Is Just Around The Riverbend
Just when you thought we were finished with the New York Comic Con exclusives from Funko, they pull one more out of thin air!

Does Whatever A Spider Can
This fall we’re getting an all-new animated movie starring several iterations of our favorite wall-crawler with ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse’!

New POP! Vinyls coming our way from ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse’ include Miles Morales, Miles Morales (Spider-Man), Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Spider-Gwen, Green Goblin, The Prowler, Spider-Ham (Walgreens exclusive), and two versions of Spider-Man Noir (including a hatless Walgreens exclusive)! These are due in stores this month, so be sure to check your favorite retailers now!
Funko Is Back In Action
This week Funko has announced a few new waves of POP! Vinyl figures based on action movies both new and old! If you’re a fan of the action genre, these next few series of POP! Vinyls might be right up your alley!
From the classic 1988 holiday favorite ‘Die Hard’ we can look forward to our hero John McClane, the villainous Hans Gruber, Tony Vreski, and the honorable officer Al Powell! There will also be a special ‘Trenchcoat’ version of Hans Gruber available exclusively at Gamestop when these hit stores next month!
If you’re into a more modern fair, Funko still has you covered with a wave of POP! Vinyls based on the upcoming ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ from Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron! There will be three versions of Alita available, featuring her Doll Body, her Berserker Body, and her Motorball Body. There will also be a special black and white variant of the Berserker Body version available exclusive at FYE.
Funko Drops The Bomb With More ‘Fallout’
If you thought hiding in the fridge would save you from the atomic power of the ‘Fallout’ video game franchise, you would be dead wrong! This week the team at Funko has announced a motherload of new products based on the long-running ‘Fallout’ series, including a new wave of Mystery Minis, 5 Stars, POP! Vinyls, and even a Vynl 2-pack!
Funko 5 Star
For POP! Vinyls collectors can get ready to scour the wasteland looking for new versions of the Male and Female Vault Dwellers (as well as a Gamestop exclusive variant of the Male Vault Dweller holding a Nuka-Cola), plus a Nerd Rage Vault Boy! There will also be a new T-51 Power Armor (which has a Nuka-Cola Themed variant at Walmart and a Vault-Tec themed variant at Best Buy), Assaultron, and a 6″ Super Sized POP! of a Sentry Bot!
All of these hot new ‘Fallout’ collectibles from Funko are expected to hit stores later this month, so be sure to keep an eye out during your adventures!
