So after a delay Funko FINALLY revealed the Exclusives for this year's NYCC Virtual Con! It also didn't help that after the delay there was a social media blackout and both FB & IG were both down on the day they were supposed to be announced lol! So all that being said, here is our TOP 10 List of Pops we are excited to get for NYCC 2021!
Again this is our Top 10 list, there are even more Exclusives being shared for this event. At the end of this Blog we will also post where they are being shared for you to grab Oct 7th - 8th!
10. DIAMOND EEVEE
It's become a Virtual Con tradition now that there will be some variant of a Pokémon character as an Exclusive! We saw Flocked as the theme last year and this year it's Diamond! We have already seen Diamond Charmander, Bulbasaur and Squirtle in 2021 and now it's Eevee's turn for NYCC.
9. X-MEN - POLARIS
There were a bunch of Marvel Pops announced for NYCC 2021, but this one is interesting! They have not made a Polaris from X-Men Pop before so it will be the first for the character as well the Glow will look nice on this Pop!
8. DISNEY - STITCH IN ROLLERS
I mean come on?!? This is adorable! Disney collectors get ready for another cute Stitch variant, this time in hair rollers and holding a drawing! This will be a popular "must-have". Check at the bottom of this post to see where it will be shared!
7. DC - POISON IVY FUNKO SODA CAN
We are the Can Guys! So our next few choices on our Top 10 List go to Funko Soda Exclusives announced for NYCC 2021, starting with this wicked Poison Ivy Vinyl Soda Figure with a 1 in 6 chance at a Diamond Glitter CHASE 😱
6. MARVEL: GUARDIANS - ROCKET FUNKO SODA CAN
Next on our list is a Rocket Funko Soda Can Exclusive from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with a 1 in 6 chance at a Flocked CHASE 🔥 Can't wait for this one, had to make it on our Top 10! We would rank it even higher but there's so many other cool Pops we want to mention lol!
5. PUMPKIN MCNUGGET
It should come at no surprise that we are getting a new McNugget variant Exclusive! During the Summer convention this year we saw a Drummer McNugget and now for NYCC we will have an adorable Fall Pumpkin McNugget! What is also interesting is that this will be sold Exclusively on McDonald's website as well as the Funko Shop. I wonder how the McD'websitete will handle the traffic lol!
4. MOTU - SNAKE FACE
Another convention favourite, Masters of the Universe, is making a return for NYCC 2021! This time with a SNAKE FACE! First Pop for the MOTU Character and to be honest one of the coolest! Such amazing detail on this Pop! There will also be a Snake Face Funko Soda and a ROBOTO Soda! We actually just received limited quantities in the Funkon 2021 Summer convention Roboto Exclusive Pop! You can purchase clicking here!
3. MARVEL - CARNAGE
The new movie sequel Venom 2: Let there be Carnage was smashing it in theatres this past opening weekend with a Pandemic-Era box office record of $90M! No shock there is a wicked Carnage Exclusive for NYCC 2021! And this Pop looks sick! Looks like it will be shared with Walmart.
2. THE OFFICE - COUSIN MOSE
"You Must Vanquish Your Fear!" Fans of the classic TV series The Office can rejoice! We are finally getting a Cousin Mose Pop! He's Dwight's cousin if you are not familiar and works on the family Beet Farm lol! Such an iconic part of the "Dwight Schrute Lore" he is seen here in his Fear Shirt with his suspenders down ready to fight Ryan in the Season 3 Episode: "Initiation" LOL! Can't wait for this Pop!
1. THE MANDALORIAN - BOBA FETT (NO HELMET)
Making to the TOP of our List of must-have Exclusives from this year's NYCC is Boba Fett! Without Helmet from Season 2 of the hit Star Wars/Disney Plus series The Mandalorian! This Pop is straight fire 🔥 Fan boys everywhere rejoiced learning Boba Fett did not die in the Sarlacc Pit in Episode 6: Return of the Jedi! We learn Boba Fett survived and now fully entrenched in the Mandalorian story. In fact, Season 2 ended with a teaser for his own spin-off series premiering this December called the Book of Boba Fett! Can't wait!
