TFG1MIKE 365 – 2019 Day 46
Funko at New York ToyFair!
Hello all and welcome to a NEW Daily Blog series from me… TFG1Mike! The idea here is for me to write something, anything, once a day for 365 days. From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. In my 46th entry, I’ll be talking about the reveals Funko debuted at New York ToyFair!
Funko was at it big time today! NY ToyFair has officially kicked off! For 12 straight hours Funko was revealing what seemed to be the entire 2019 lineup! From 6am ET to 6pm ET we had all kinds of reveals, from all kinds of properties! They introduced a NEW line called POP Town!, and we’re getting new stuff from The Simpsons, Big Bang Theory, Men In Black, NEW MLB, NEW Ad Icons, and so much more. I could barely keep up with learning of all the new merch they were showing off. I’m writing this just 10 minutes after all of their reveals were shown off, and dammit if I don’t want most of what was shown off! Just because I want it, doesn’t mean I’ll get it. I’ve been collecting Funko pops for almost two years now, and I have learned to live without a good many of them. I’ll say ooohh I want that, and that, oh and then there’s this. However there have been more than a few times, when I’ve come out of stores empty handed. My inner Funko Fanatic is dueling with my brain, because as I said I know I can’t “buy ’em all!”
What I love about Funko’s reveals at ToyFair is that the diversity is off the charts! They’re releasing something for everyone. I’m in about 4-5 Funko groups on Facebook, and I can’t tell you how many times I see people asking when pops might come out for The Office… Well both The Office and Community are now getting pop figures. I’ve said this before within the last two years, Funko’s Pop figures to me are a way of collecting characters that you love. Look at that Jolly Green Giant and Kool-Aid Man! Ooohhhh yeah! Plus Muhammad Ali and Babe Ruth… who is she??!! Those Ghostbusters pops are killer, especially the roasted Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!
What are you excited to see from these Funko NY ToyFair reveals? Do you collect any Funko lines? Let me know in the comments below! Join me this weekend for a GeekCast Radio podcast episode talking more in depth about these Funko reveals!
Join me tomorrow morning February 16, 2019 as I’ll be writing about Tastes in TV!
