Yesterday on its blog, Funko dropped a ton of new collectibles from its various lines of vinyl goodness coming out in 2019 in honor of the London Toy Fair. Funko revealed multiple new waves of Funko Pops from video game, TV, comic book, and film franchises that will surely tickle at least one of your collecting fancies.
There are so many new waves and brand new lines that it’d be foolish to list them all here, so I’m just going to include a few galleries that spoke to me. Now that doesn’t mean I’m going to break my non-Star Wars Funko Pop buying ban, but I can still appreciate them from afar. With that being said, if I still collected ALL THE POPS, I’d be most interested in the following new London Toy Fair Reveals.
Also, most of the standard Pops can already be pre-ordered from Entertainment Earth, so if you want to get the jump on them, hit up EE’s new products page.
Game of Thrones
What I like most about this new GoT wave are the potential throne sitters. I dig the various candidates, and appreciate the foreshadowing each brings. I also love the Pop Ride and feel it would make for some great Funko Photography.
To me, the best looking Pops revealed for London Toy Fair have to be the 80th Anniversary Batman offerings. I’m personally drawn to the 1989 Batman movie inspired Pops and Movie Moments, but each one in this wave is a must-own if you’re a Batman fanatic.
Being the huge Tolkien fan that I am, I have to say that I really dig the new LOTR Pop Ride. The Witch King still manages to look like a badass, even though he’s all chibi-styled and cute looking, which makes it a killer collectible.
It’s J.J., enough said.
A few video game franchises are getting new Pops in 2019, but quite frankly, most of them look pretty basic. That is unless we’re talking about the new Overwatch wave, which definitely features some dynamic sculpts.
