Everything Funko from NY Toy Fair 2018

Funko has a gargantuan booth every year at Toy Fair, and this year was even bigger than before! Here is everything we saw in their booth during NY Toy Fair 2018.

Funko was in full force at NY Toy Fair 2018, and brought many new products for the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” along with a multitude of more horror movies. Included here are action figures, mystery minis, funko pops, bobbleheads, and a new line of classic Mattel He-Man style action figures with some familiar slashers of the 80’s.

Check out the new sports pops from Funko, including items with current roster and legendary players. Featured here are funko pops from the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, and WWE.

Funko’s enormous booth also had a ton of movie licenses for their Funko Pop figures and mystery minis. Shown in this video are products from characters in Harry Potter, Ready Player One, Jumanji, Wonder Woman, Princess Bride, Jurassic Park, Home Alone, James Bond, Lord of the Rings, Thor: Ragnarok, Elf, Mad Max: Fury Road, Super Troopers, Tommy Boy, La La Land, Bright, and more.

Funko fanatics love Funko pops based on characters from modern and nostalgic cartoons.

Funko Pops look especially great when they capture video game licenses, and NY Toy Fair 2018 debuted a massive amount of new products from these properties.

This is a tremendous announcement with a lot of cool items, and there is still plenty more to be revealed at NY Toy Fair next week. As for the look of these figures, it is definitely a hit or miss with them. The “Alien” line worked well because it was based on pre-existing figures that were never made and had a demand behind them. These figures are an interesting concept, but the execution may turn off some collectors from purchasing a great deal of these. However, the nostalgic look combined with the particular licenses they acquired should attract plenty of eyes and wallets to them, since they do have a unique charm with their appearance. Time will tell how successful they are, but I hope it survives for a while so we can see what else comes out of it.
