Let’s be honest, there’s more Funko POP! Vinyl figures than you can shake a stick at, so where do you begin?
If you’ve been wanting to dive into the world of collecting Funko POP! Vinlys but have no idea where to start, we’ve decided to take a look at what’s happening in the world of gaming and movie releases this year to see how you can kick-start your collection with something you’ve probably fallen in love with recently, or something you think you’ll be falling in love with.
Whether it’s a recent video game release, an upcoming TV show, or a movie that has just been unveiled, we’ve got – or should I say Funko have got – a POP! Vinyl for you. So without further ado, here’s a handful of Funko POP! Vinyls from the big and little screens.
Baymax from Big Hero 6
Baymax is the best. Simple. If you’re feeling down he’s soft, warm, and squishy and is perfect to hug. If you’ve got a beef to settle, he’s also got the bad-ass armour and the skills to kick anyone’s butt. The movie Big Hero Six launched earlier this year and already it’s well in the running to be our movie of the year. It’s an animation, it sparked so many feelings, and was just an all-round fantastic movie. If you’ve yet to see the movie I impore you to do so, if you have, these extra-large POP! Vinyls are perfect to start of any collection.
Super Sayan Goku from Dragon Ball Xenoverse
We’ve followed Goku from when he was a young boy with a tail looking for the Dragon Balls, he soon grew up to become one of the most iconic Dragon Ball characters in history hitting ridiculously high power levels. This year saw the release of the first Dragon Ball title on next-generation consoles, and if you’re a fan of the series, and the game as well (we thought it was great, albeit a little difficult to master), then this figure is definitely where to start.
Patrick from The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge Out of Water
We love SpongeBob and we’re not afraid to admit it, that’s why later this year we’ll be queueing up to check out The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge Out of Water where SpongeBob, Patrick, and the gang will be coming to the surface to find the missing Krabby Patty recipe! Surprisingly the movie’s CGI looks pretty well executed, it’s a shame Patrick doesn’t look as adorable as this POP! Vinyl. (who we might add is currently joined by SpongeBob on our shelf). The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge Out of Water lands in theatres on March 27.
White Walker from Game of Thrones Season 5
The White Walkers have made an appearance in almost every season of Game of Thrones and after the events in Season 4 we’re thinking they’ll be making a return in Season 5. Though Funko’s POP! Vinyl version doesn’t look as terrifying as the real thing, it’s still a pretty creepy addition to your collection. Season 5 of Game of Thrones is set to begin on HBO on April 8.
Deadpool from the Upcoming 2016 Deadpool Movie
If you’re a Marvel Comic’s fan then this Funko POP! Bobble Head is a must for your collection, and what better time than now as we’ve had confirmation of a Deadpool movie in the works coming next year. Set to star Ryan Reynolds the Deadpool movie is something we’re all pretty excited to see, even though information is very, very thin right now. But this figure’s head bobbles around, so it’s all okay.
