The Funko Forecast
Get ready for the Funko Forecast! This is where we’re going to be showcasing all of the cool new announcements and reveals from Funko! With all of the awesome that consistently seems to be flowing out of those guys, it shouldn’t be hard to keep this section alive each and every week!
Hogwarts For The Holidays
This holiday season the team at Funko has a special treat in store for ‘Harry Potter’ fans with an all new Advent Calendar! While no exact release date has been given, Funko has announced that their new ‘Harry Potter’ Advent Calendar would be set to run for 24 days, with each day giving you a new Pocket Pop Vinyl figure! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this, as it should be hitting stores soon!
When There’s ‘Stranger Things’ In Your Neighborhood
The hype surrounding Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ series is going no where! While we will unfortunately be waiting quite a while to see what happens next in Season 3 next summer, the team at Funko thankfully has figured out how to at least keep us distracted while we wait by releasing a load of new ‘Stranger Things’ collectibles for us to track down! New pieces include Holiday Ornaments, Plushies, 5-Star, Moments, and of course, POP! Vinyls! Check out the full variety of new items below! These are all expected to release before years end.

Better Late Than Never
While most of us are already celebrating the launch of the new season of ‘Doctor Who’ starring the Thirteenth Doctor, Funko is dwelling on the past seasons with two new ‘Doctor Who’ POP Vinyls that are expected to hit stores any day now! From the most recent seasons of the show is Missy (aka The Master) and a special new ‘Clara Memorial Edition’ Tardis POP! These are expected to hit the market now, so be sure to keep an eye out!
While we’re on the subject of POP! Vinyls that are a bit late to the game, Funko also announced two new POP! Vinyls based on the 2016 film ‘Split’! This wouldn’t be deemed too weird as sometimes POP! releases get delayed, but ‘Split’ has a sequel/spin-off releasing in just a few months with ‘Mr. Glass’, so it’s a bit odd that these won’t just be released under the ‘Mr. Glass’ banner. Either way, you can look forward to new POP! Vinyls of The Beast and Hedwig in stores this November!
The DC Universe Gets Primal
We’ve seen some interesting toylines from Funko over the years, but this next one might take the cake! Announced at New York Comic Con 2018, Funko has revealed the entire first wave of their new Amazon exclusive DC Primal Age! This new line combines the design aesthetic of the old ‘Masters Of The Universe’ figures and combines it with characters from the modern DC Universe!
Characters included in this first wave include Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Joker, Scarecrow, King Shark, and Mr. Freeze! There will also be ‘Beast Mounts’ like Ace The Bathound for Batman and a Lizard-like ‘Joker Beast’! To top things off, there will be a DC Primal Age Batcave Playset! These are all up for pre-order on Amazon now, with a scheduled release date of November 15th!
And with that, we bring this week’s Toy News Tuesday to a close! What do you think about the new items announced this week? Do you plan on picking up anything we mentioned in this week’s column?
