Check out our weekly round-up of the week's collectables news - including Funko, Hot Toys and more!
Another week, another wave of collectable announcements. From this year’s London Toy Fair has come a series of exciting announcements, so join us for our round-up of this week’s reveals.
Funko Pop! Vinyl
Following the news of their acquisition by Funko, Underground Toys Limited have been hard at work, to bring you a whole host of new collectables, first up is the ever popular Pop! Range.
The sheer amount of Funko Pops! announced are too great in number to detail here but some of the more notable announcements were Lord of the Rings, The 100, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Twin Peaks, Power Rangers and ToyNews favourite, Space Jam. Clearly making a conscious effort to expand their videogames range, lines based on Gears of War, Overwatch, Five Nights at Freddy's and Kingdom Hearts were also announced. For the full list check out our original story here.
Metals Die Cast
Also on show at Underground Toys Ltd stand was the new Metals Die Cast Harry Potter figurine. The high-quality metal figure will sit alongside famous Marvel female heroes, as well as DC Comics' Supergirl, Catwoman and Wonder Woman, WWE and other Disney characters in this growing line-up.
For those looking for a metal figure, a little smaller and cuter, look no further than the Metals Nano Steel range featuring Harry Potter, WWE and DC World collections.
Heading over to the Character Options stand, those in attendance at London Toy Fair 2017 got a sneak peak at the new Doctor Who action figure range featuring 5.5 inch figures with new designs for the ninth and twelfth Doctor, along with the return of the Ninth & Tenth Doctor ‘Tardis Control Room’ Playset.
When it comes to high-end figures, there isn’t a name with more prestige than Hot Toys. This week saw the announcement of a new 1:6 scale The Joker figure, based on his iconic design from Batman: Arkham Asylum. Not content with delighting collectors the world over with a peak at this sizzling new figure, Hot Toys continued to treat us with the reveal of Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad and R2-D2 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Better get saving those pennies though, as Hot Toys’ most popular figures retail for as much as £259.99!
Finally, Hot Toys are breaking into the cute collectables space with a series of chibi manga-inspired bobble-head figurines based on Netflix’s Daredevil series. The line will include fan favourite Daredevil, Elektra and the Punisher, in their season 2 forms.
Happy hunting, collectable fans and we’ll see you next Thursday, for your regularly scheduled Collectable Corale!
