With the media embargo for Avengers: Infinity War lifted today, there’s been some accompanying product reveals – I’ve posted about Marvel Legends and LEGO sets for Infinity War already. But the one I have dreaded most is the Funko reveal – they’ve got SO MUCH STUFF!
While they started with Pop! as their solitary designer vinyl line, they’ve added Dorbz, Mystery Minis, and keychains to the mix. And then there’s the plush and clothing. You want to know who’s got the most star power in Infinity War? It’s Iron Man, based on the eleven different iterations (including variants) of him across the various Funko lines. In contrast, Thanos is the runner-up with eight, while Spidey’s got seven.
Read on for all the pics and details!

Make no mistake – Universal Studios Licensing is making the most of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The second movie in the Jurassic World trilogy (fifth in the Jurassic Park franchise) opens in June this year, and following the blockbuster success of 2015’s Jurassic World, a plethora of licensees have signed on to deliver products for the sequel.
We’re not just talking toys for kids here – Universal’s media tour also included apparel and accessories, following the model they used for The Mummy last year. While that movie fizzled for them at the box office, Jurassic World seems like a sure thing.
Let’s take a look at the toys!

Like its illegitimate parent Funko has done with its Pop! line, Vinyl Sugar is building out the licenses for Dorbz – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the latest addition to the line. You can already find Dorbz for DC Comics and Marvel, including the awesome Guardian of the Galaxy Dorbz. TMNT Dorbz will be available in October, with the four Turtles and villains Rocksteady and Bebop.
Also joining Dorbz in October, Jack Skellington and the gang from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.

We thought Funko might have one more reveal before the big show, and they did not disappoint. In addition to two more Funko Pop! exclusives, for Batman v Superman and Breaking Bad, they also are introducing a new line of t-shirts featuring their Pop! vinyls.
Looks like their license for t-shirts may be as broad as what their other lines cover, as the debut includes Skeletor from Masters of the Universe, Black Widow from the Avengers, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But what, no Star Wars?

Here’s the third batch of announcements from Funko’s SDCC exclusives. They span their Dorbz, Hikari, Pop, ReAction, and Vinyl Idolz product lines, and covers their DC, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Hanna Barbera, and Ghostbusters licenses… just to name a few!
Funko also announced a signing with Hannibal executive producer Bryan Fuller:
We are thrilled to announce our Bryan Fuller Pop! figure! The man behind Hannibal bears an eerie resemblance to Hannibal Lector!
This Pop! comes in a run of 144 pieces and will be available during his signing at the Funko booth on Friday, July 10th at 2 p.m.! The line for our Bryan Fuller signing will not begin to form before 1 p.m. and we will only sell Bryan Fuller Pop!s during the signing. We will not sell other Funko items during that time!
While we were expecting just three batches of announcements, maybe Funko will have a final one before the show. Stay tuned!
