San Diego Comic Con is just about a month away and there’s a ton of stuff that we’re excited to see come out of the show, like the big announcements from all of the major movie and TV studios and comic book big (and little) shots. However, one of the major draws to the West Coast mecca for geek culture is the exclusive toys that are available at the show.
Over the last couple of weeks, Funko, the purveyor of fine Pop! vinyls, has announced their lineup of SDCC exclusive figures. We have compiled everything right here for you so you can decide before you go which ones you can’t live without (or salivate over the exclusives you’ll need to hunt down on eBay if you can’t make it to San Diego).
Even if you make it to to SDCC, chances are getting your hands on these Pop! figures will still prove difficult. Distribution will be similar to last year, in that access to the Funko booth will be by lottery only. Funko didn’t provide many details on how that’ll work for 2017, and in fact may be trying to work that out with the comic con showrunners, but we will share the info with you once it becomes available.
Fret not! Funko has said that many, if not most, of the SDCC exclusives will be shared, meaning they will be available at Hot Topic, Gamestop, FYE, or any other stores or distributors that have exclusive license with Funko. While there won’t be any details on which will be available where until around the week of SDCC, we’ll make sure to keep you in the loop.
Wave 9: Miscellaneous (Announced Jun 23)
When I spotted Funko’s exclusive release for today, I started to scroll through them and got bored pretty quickly. Right until I saw the Megazord. That one had me. I’m a huge Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fan and I absolutely love that 6” Megazord.
Then I kept scrolling and spotted the Masters of the Universe stuff. Scareglow? A She-Ra Rock Candy. Yes, please!
I’m really hoping all of those are shared exclusives because I will need to track them down.
Today’s wave is a bunch of items that didn’t really fit in with any other category, but we love them just the same!

Pop! Funko: Sike-O-Shriner
Wave 8: DISNEY (Announced June 21)
So much good stuff out of this Disney line!
First of all, Chip and Dale are one of my favorite duos. I don’t have these guys in my collection at all so having a flocked version of them would be fantastic.
Secondly, the rooster was one of my favorite parts of Moana. Yes, I’m weird like that, but he was super funny, and this Hei Hei looks great.
Finally, two glow in the dark Pop! toys! Though I’m not crazy about “Pirates of the Caribbean,” that Jolly Roger looks amazing. It’s just a shame he’s limited to 1000 pieces because that means I’ll probably never get my hands on him.
Since I am crazy about Darkwing Duck, a glow in the dark Negatron is so up my alley. I’ll be working hard to try and acquire that guy!
As put in the press release:
Our Disney SDCC exclusives sure cover a lot of ground! We have some new characters from cartoons, movies, and Disney Parks! Plus, check out some fun versions of familiar faces, like flocked or glow-in-the-dark!
Pop! Disney: Chip & Dale 2-pack (Flocked)

Dorbz Ridez: Aladdin – Aladdin & Abu with Magic Carpet
Wave 7.5: RICK & MORTY – Tinkles and Ghost in a Jar (Announced June 20)
I don’t know why this wasn’t included with the rest of the “Cartoons” wave but Funko dropped the news separately for Rick & Morty fans that they’ll be able to get a Tinkles Pop! I don’t watch the show and have no idea about this character, but it looks pretty cool, and I like that little ghost.
From the press release:
As the Master Toy Licensee Partner for Rick and Morty, Funko has made a concerted effort to showcase the incredible oddities of this uniquely creative show! The San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Tinkles with Ghost in a Jar Pop! is yet another example of why we’re proud to partner with minds capable of producing something adorable, fascinating, and, inevitably, sinister. Keep an eye out for more Rick and Morty products from Funko, such as Pop!s, Action Figures, and even the upcoming Portal Gun!
Wave 7: WARNER BROS – Harry Potter, Supernatural, Lord of the Rings & The 100 (Announced June 19)
This was kind of a mish-mosh of a reveal seeing as how these are all over the place but oh em gee there’s some amazing offerings in this bunch. While I’m not generally a fan of Pop! Rides, I am a fan of Supernatural so to finally have Baby in Pop! form is a god-send.
Also, a fun fact about me: my two favorite characters from Harry Potter are Neville and Luna. While Funko already made both of those, I am super stoked for the Luna in the Spectrespecs, and though I wasn’t too crazy about Fantastic Beasts, the 6” Occamy is beautiful and I love the iridescence on it.
Pop! Television: The 100 – Lincoln as Reaper (750pc LE)
Lincoln from The 100 is featured as a Reaper and is joining the SDCC line up!
Pop! Ride: Supernatural – Baby with Dean
How do you raise a babyshifter? Dean is figuring that out! Dean & Baby are now a SDCC exclusive Pop! Ride!
The magic of Hogwarts continues with some epic SDCC exclusives!
Pop! Harry Potter: Harry on Broom
Pop! Harry Potter: Luna Lovegood with Glasses
Pop! Movies: Fantastic Beasts – 6” Occamy
Now receiving the 6” Pop! vinyl treatment is the Occamy from the hit movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!
Wave 6: TV (Announced June 16)
Finally a Clara Pop! There have been so many Doctor Who Pop!s already that it’s almost criminal that Clara is just getting a release, but at least it’s happening.
That Tick looks sweet, too (and it glows in the dark!), and I might even pick up that Stranger Things Steve, just for the detail alone.
Besides those, there’s not much in this wave that grabs me. I never really watched Twin Peaks or Mr. Robot (though from what I understand, I should) and I fell out of favor with The Walking Dead long ago. Fans of those shows might be interested in these Pop!s. For the most part, they look pretty good.
Pop! Television: Mr. Robot – Masked Elliot Alderson
It’s a mask he can’t take off! To hide his true self, it’s Elliot Anderson featured in the fsociety mask!
Pop! Television: The Walking Dead – T-Dog
One of the original characters from the hit AMC series The Walking Dead is now a SDCC exclusive… it’s T-Dog!
Pop! Television: Doctor Who – Clara
Clara, the Impossible Girl, is joining the Pop! vinyl SDCC line up!
Pop! Television: The Tick –The Tick (Glow-in-the-Dark)
Be prepared when The Tick hits Amazon Prime Video on August 25th with this SDCC exclusive glow-in-the-dark Tick Pop! Neat!
We haven’t had enough of Stranger Things on Netflix! Steve and Mr. Clarke are receiving the Pop! vinyl treatment for SDCC!
Pop! Television: Stranger Things – Steve
Pop! Television: Stranger Things – Mr. Clarke
Wave 5: DC! (Announced June 14)
DC seems to have the largest showing at SDCC this year and there’s a lot to be excited for. First of all, Ares from the Wonder Woman film is a must-have for any completists out there (such as myself). Though I’m not really a fan of Dorbz, the Diana/Ares 2-pack looks great.
Funko is also giving us additions from other movie-property Pop!s with a Joker Batman based from the Suicide Squad line as well as two Pop!s from the upcoming Justice League. I’m really digging Bruce Wayne; it would go well next to the Tony Stark SDCC exclusive.
Luckily, the animation gets some love too! Man-Bat from Batman: The Animated Series looks incredible and is enticing me to start collecting that series. We also get a Wonder Twins 3-pack! Who would have ever thought that would be a thing?
Finally, that Red Batmobile. I have no idea what it’s from but it’s a thing of beauty.
As seen from the press release:
From comic books to the big screen and some surprises in between, Funko’s DC exclusives for San Diego Comic Con really runs the spectrum! We have key additions to the Wonder Woman and Justice League movie lines as well as a Suicide Squad The Joker inspired Batman! Speaking of Batman, we also have a stunning blue chrome variant, a special Batmobile action figure colorway, and Interplanetary Batman with a space helmet! We have the Wonder Twins and Man-Bat for fans of DC’s animated shows, while comic buffs will enjoy classic Nightwing and Deathstroke Dorbz!

Wave 4: CARTOONS (Announced June 12)
Here’s a few that I’m really excited for! As of a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as I am, shockingly the only Pop! I own from that line is Casey Jones, but that Baxter Stockman Fly Pop! needs to be part of my collection.
An epic amount of your cartoon favorites are now arriving as SDCC exclusives!
Pop! Animation: Ren & Stimpy – Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy 2-pack (2500pc LE)

Pop! Television: South Park – The Coon
The Coon and Mint-Berry Crunch from the animated hit show South Park are also joining Funko’s SDCC exclusives lineup!
Pop! Television: South Park – Mint-Berry Crunch
Wave 3: MARVEL (Announced June 9)
It’s no surprise that Marvel would get a major reveal, but what does surprise me is how few items are included in the exclusive wave, as well as how plain most of these are. I think the Gwenpool with the selfie stick is a pretty clever piece, but I’m not too keen on the Red She-Hulk and Bucky Cap Pop!s (although I do like that Tony Stark from Spider-Man: Homecoming and that may be the plainest from the bunch so judge me as you will).
From the press release:
Our San Diego Comic Con exclusives for Marvel include some of your comic book favorites and one major big screen personality! Gwenpool busts out her selfie stick and also joins the Rock Candy family, while Red She-Hulk & Bucky Cap both make their Funko debut! e also have Tony Stark showing off his snazzy street style while holding a familiar helmet!
Pop! Marvel: Gwenpool with Selfie Stick
Rock Candy: Gwenpool
Pop! Marvel: Red She-Hulk
Pop! Marvel: Captain America (Bucky Cap)
Pop! Marvel: Spider-Man Homecoming – Tony Stark (holding helmet)
Wave 2: SCOTT PILGRIM (Announced June 7)
I won’t lie; I’m a little surprised that Scott Pilgrim vs the World got its own wave of release news, but that doesn’t mean I’m not excited. That Nega Scott Pop! is fantastic but I think the one I’m most excited for is the Ramona Flowers Rock Candy. The roller blades are a nice touch.
From the press release:
Funko earned the Power of new Scott Pilgrim figures! Scott Pilgrim with Sword of Destiny, NegaScott, and Roxy Richter Pop!s are coming for San Diego Comic Con 2017! We’re also offering a Scott Pilgrim Dorbz 3-pack – which includes Scott with Sword of Destiny, NegaScott, and Scott with his bass guitar – as well as Ramona Flowers in Rock Candy form!
Pop! Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World – Scott with Sword of Destiny (2000pc LE)
Pop! Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World – Nega Scott
Dorbz: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World – Scott Pilgrim 3-pack (500pc LE)
Rock Candy: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World – Ramona Flowers (1250pc LE)
Wave 1: STAR WARS (Announced June 5)
The first wave of exclusives Funko announced was their Star Wars line. Most of what they showed focused on the recent Rogue One and The Force Awakens movies, as to be expected, but that Leia/R2-D2 2-pack is on point.
Funko’s first round of exclusives for San Diego Comic Con 2017 come from a galaxy far, far away!
From recent fan favorites Bodhi Rook, Combat Assault Tank Trooper, and 6-inch holographic Snoke to the timeless pairing of R2-D2 with holographic Princess Leia, these figures are essential for every Star Wars fan!
Pop! Star Wars: Rogue One – Bodhi Rook
Pop! Star Wars: Rogue One – Combat Assault Tank Trooper
Pop! Star Wars: 6″ Supreme Leader Snoke (Glow-in-the-Dark)
Pop! Star Wars: Holographic Princess Leia & R2-D2

Need a new plush friend to add to your collection? Consider contributing to the Hatoful Boyfriend Kickstarter! The team behind the popular pigeon dating sim has recently launched a Kickstarter to bring their characters to life with the aid of pledges and stuffing. Wait, pigeon dating? That’s a thing?
Hatoful Boyfriend is a Japanese pigeon dating sim game series, originally created by Hato Moa as an April fool’s joke in 2011. If you haven’t yet be indoctrined into the Dating Sim world, Hatoful Boyfriend is a text-based visual novel where almost all characters, except the player, are birds. The player has been invited as the human ambassador to the prestigious school, St. PigeoNation’s. It is up to the player to make friends and find love among their avian classmates. Yes, you are continuing to read that correctly. Players have to be careful, as every choice they make has the potential to change the ending of the game.
The story stands out from other games in the genre by combing a unique setting, twisted sense of humor, and extremely satirical elements. Because of this, Hatoful Boyfriend has built a dedicated fan base and quickly grown from a practical joke into a franchise that has now been brought to Windows, OSX, Linux, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita. Who doesn’t love a game where you can fall in love with a guy who coos at you?
And now you can take the obsession even further by snuggling with your very own pigeon-boy counterpart.
At the time of this post, Hatoful Boyfriend’s Kickstarter has well surpassed it’s goal of 25,000$ and has raised 76,399$ with the aid of 1,317 backers who are ready to add these plushies to their collections! The Hatoful Boyfriend Kickstarter has 27 days to raise additional funds. Will you be contributing?
For the Collector Corps Fall edition, we have the theme Villains. I suppose they picked this theme to go along with Halloween, and they make a strong case for it with Venom featured on the box’s cover licking into the foreground. Today I will be showing off the awesome gifts inside and going over what you have to look forward to next edition of Collector Corps.
It’s Halloween time, and today I am counting down my top favorite horror Pops that represent the season. It’s easy to say Funko is a huge fan of the horror genre considering the dozens of Pops they’ve designed and then the legion of variants of those Pops. Some of these were tough choices and some are still fighting it out! (more…)
