As we’re still reeling from the flood of announcements out of London Toy Fair, the Nuremberg fair is getting into full swing and you can bet the flow of announcements isn’t going to stop anytime soon. As we transition between these two exciting industry events, join us and catch up on the collectables news from the previous week.
Funko Pop! Vinyl
Funko is back at it again with white vans full of adorable, pop culture-inspired figurines. First up are some chibi-fied Marvel TV stars in the form of Jessica Jones and Daredevil. It’s a good week for gamers too, starting with the announcement of more Mass Effect: Andromeda figures, tying in with the release of the highly-anticipated sci-fi video game.
Fans of classic children’s author Dr. Suess are getting a treat this week, with the reveal of Dr. Suess Pop figures and Dorbz based on such beloved characters as the Cat in the Hat, Horton and Sam I Am. Funko will also be debuting pen toppers and keyrings based on the author’s books.
We’re barely hours into Nuremburg and this prestigious manufacturer has already dropped some hot announcements. First up is a new addition to the high-end figurine line Play Arts Kai, in the form of Aqua from the Kingdom Hearts series.
Also joining the Play Arts line is solemn hero Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy VIII along with sassy vixen Cindy from Final Fantasy XV. Finally, the firm announced a fresh collaboration with Marvel for a seriously cool new Wolverine figure. You can grab this bad boy ahead of the release of new movie Logan next month.
The Walking Dead fans will lose their minds at this one. The good folks at McFarlane Toys have just revealed the ultimate TWD collectible in the form of this new Daryl Dixon statue. The highly-detailed resin statue depicts an impressive likeness of actor Norman Reedus, astride his Harley Davidson bike, pegging a zombie in the head with his iconic crossbow. The statue stands at 10 inches tall and will hit shelves on February 8th. Better get saving though, because this beauty will set you back $329 (£262)!
