Funko Is Living On The Wild Side

This spring Funko is showing their wild side with new POP! Vinyls based on two of the years biggest upcoming films starring animals!

First up we have an all new wave of POP! Vinyls based on Disney’s new ‘live action’ CGI adaptation of ‘The Lion King’! The main wave is comprised of Simba, Scar, Rafiki, Timon, and Pumba! There will also be a number of retailer exclusive Flocked variant figures like Simba (BoxLunch), Rafiki (Funkoshop), Scar (FYE) and Timon (Barnes & Noble). These new POP! Vinyls are expected to his stores in the immediate future, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for these while you’re on the prowl if you just can’t wait to be king!

If you’re looking for something a little more traditionally animated but still unconventional, Funko also has two new POP! Vinyls based on the upcoming stop-motion animated film ‘The Missing Link’! THe only POP!s in this line are of Mr. Link himself, with a regular Mr. Link POP! and a Mr. Link In Suit POP! Vinyl both expected to hit stores in May 2019!
