Yesterday Animation Magazine reported that Cartoon Network had entered into an agreement with several toy companies, including Funko, to begin a Steven Universe merchandising campaign set to begin in the fourth quarter of this year. In the article they note that Hot Topic will be getting these products a month in advance of the planned release date.
We saw it coming with the wildly popular Adventure Times Funko products and numerous other Frederator and Cartoon Network licenses, but now the moment has arrived. While the article only mentions the core cast of Crystal Gems and Steven, I would be shocked and horrified if this was the only wave of products. There’s hope for an astonishing amount of exclusives and variants. By far the most exciting is a Pop! Rides Greg and his Van set, complete with waffle iron.
So avid fans and collectors, which SU Pops are you most looking forward to and what exclusives do you think we’ll see? Sound off in the comments and let us know! Also be sure to check out our Steven Universe Halloween post, and our thoughts on the series as well!
