Funko

As always Funko has a raft of exciting new announcements this week, starting with one for the gamers. Your favourite wasteland wanderers will be hitting shelves in adorable form with a new line of Fallout 4 Dorbz, featuring such iconic characters as Vault Boy and the Grim Reaper. A new Ghost Rider figure will also be added to the Dorbz line this Spring.

Elsewhere the firm announced two additions to their range of DC Comics-inspired Pop! figures. A new Superman Pop based on his design from cult classic comic The Dark Knight Returns is out now, with a figure of Carrie Kelley's Robin to follow in May.

Finally, the firm announced another addition to its Hikari Stormtrooper line, with a figure based on metallic villain Captain Phasma from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
