Toy Fair 2020 has come and gone like a hot flash and boy oh boy did it sure bring the heat! In case you aren’t familiar with how Toy Fair works, the event is not open to the public, it’s a trade-only event where toy makers debut products that will be releasing throughout the year. Most of the world’s largest toy makers are typically in attendance and this year was no exception with over 7,000 toys being debuted to the world!
Funko didn’t disappoint either, debuting tons of new Pops that included both new properties and new waves for some of your favourites! Without further delay, let’s jump right in to see what Funko debuted at the 2020 New York Toy Fair.
Here are my Top 3 Waves…
1. New Pokémon Pops
Gotta catch ‘em all! Funko continues to dip their toes into the Pokémon universe bringing THREE brand new characters and a new sculpt for Ash’s best buddy Pikachu. We aren’t sure what he’s so upset about… maybe it’s that he couldn’t attend the Toy Fair in person? But we have a Grumpy Pikachu making his Funko debut alongside Growlithe, Rattata and Cubone. Cubone is a personal favourite and an instant-buy for me – he just looks awesome!
2. Wonder Woman 84 Pops
We also got a first look at the Pops for what is likely to be DC’s next SMASH HIT, Wonder Woman ’84. These look amazing. That Golden Armour is just so cool. And while we got a glimpse at what Kristen Wiig’s character will look like in what is likely her ‘human’ form, I’m willing to bet the blacked-out mystery character will be her Cheetah form. Here’s to hoping the film doesn’t get bumped any further, as it has been moved twice already. The current release date for the film in theatres is set for August 14th, 2020. Fingers crossed!
3. The Mighty Ducks Pops
“But they don’t even have teeth!” “Neither do hockey players!” Quack. Quack. Quack. Quack! Oh sweet baby Jesus. This is the one I am most excited for. Funko announced at the 2020 Toy Fair that Pops for The Mighty Ducks are coming and it’s got us practicing our flying v in the driveway in anticipation.
A first wave of pops for the Amazon Prime series the Boys, Hello Kitty, My Hero Academia, Cobra Kai, Candy Heroes and the debut of music album covers. Many of these Pops are already available for Pre-Order on our K-Dog & Fish website. Stay tuned for more details about each of these waves as we learn and see more.
And of course, don’t miss Kdog & Fish talk about their favourite NY Toy Fair reveals in Episode 21 of the K-Dog & Fish YouTube Show.
