Hey Funko Funatics!
Since we're approaching the end of June, the half-way point of 2021, we decided to hit pause and look back at some of our favourite Pops that have either been released or announced in 2021. Between the Funko Toy Fair, ECCC Spring Convention, Wondrous Con and general releases, 2021 has been an incredible year for Funko fans so far - dare we say one of the best?
Let's break down some of our favourites releases and announcements from 2021 thus far...
Masters of the Universe Man-At-Arms & Kobra Khan Soda Cans
Alright, so we may be a bit biased on these, as we were Canada's Exclusive Retailer for them, but the ECCC Spring Convention 2021 Masters of the Universe Man-At-Arms and Kobra-Khan Soda Cans definitely make our list of some of our favourite pops so far in 2021. Not only do they look super cool, but it's been a blast hearing from all of you about how much fun you've had opening them and how many of you have pulled Chases!
If you haven't scooped up one or both of these yet, you might as well grab a soda, guys! You can find them both here: Man-At-Arms & Kobra Khan.
30th Anniversary Deadpool in Cake
When you combine two amazing things - like Deadpool and cake - you get one super amazing thing and that is definitely the case with this Pop! Funko celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the first appearance of Marvel's Deadpool in a BIG way this year with an incredible wave of Pops that included a Dino Deadpool, Barista Deadpool, Deadpool with Teddy Bear Pants and many others. Whether you are a diehard Deadpool fan or even just a casual Marvel fan, you can't deny just how cool these Pops are.
We have several in-stock, you can check them out here.
We're still waiting to see an updated graphic of exactly how this Pop will look, but it should STILL go without saying that one of the hottest Pops and one of our favourites is definitely the Toronto Raptors Mascot! Whether you got on board the Raptor hype-train when Kawaii led the Raptors to their first-ever NBA Championship in 2019 or you were a Raptors fan from their inaugural season back in 1995 or you're just a basketball fan in general, this Raptors Mascot Pop is one hot ticket item that we cannot wait to get our hands on. In-box, out-of-box, it doesn't matter, we think this is one of the coolest Pops of the year.
If you haven't already Pre-Ordered yours, you can do so here and be one of the lucky people to get their hands on it first when it drops!
We did a podcast once entitled “K-Dog & Fish Funko Pop Wish List” and at the top of that list were SEINFELD Pops! Well the wait is over and we are FINALLY getting Seinfeld Pops from Funko... and a lot of them! As huge Seinfeld fans, it's hard for us to narrow down exactly which Seinfeld Pop we are most excited about. To be honest, we'll probably need to add the entire wave to our collection! What about you, are you as hyped for Seinfeld Pops? Which ones?
Pre-Orders for Seinfeld Pops are are still available - including saving big by getting the Whole Set!
You don't need to be a Pokémon fan to appreciate just how cool the newly announced Charizard Pop is. The detail of the Pop, the menacing glare, the fire on his tail... this Pop looks amazing! We can't wait to find out whether this will eventually be available in the 10" Super Sized line or what metallic, flocked or diamond variations we'll see - heck, maybe Funko will finally introduce Shiny versions, and we'll see a Black Charizard!? We're definitely hyped to see Charizard in-person.
You can secure your Charizard Pre-Order from K-Dog & Fish here.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian - Unmasked Mando with Grogu
Easily one of our favourite shows right now, from Disney+, Star Wars: The Mandalorian features one of the cutest characters in all of the galaxy. Without spoiling too much from the series, those of you who watched the finale of the most recent season will have seen this interesting crossroads for Mando and Grogu that sees the characters saying farewell. Will it be for good? Will we see Grogu or Mando popping up in some of the other Disney+ Star Wars series? There are so many questions left unanswered... but one that ISN'T a question, is how freaking cool this Mando with Grogu Pop is. We finally get a fantastic unmasked Mando Pop. We NEED this Pop!
We still have Pre-Orders for this touching moment between Mando and Grogu on K-Dog & Fish now.
Captain Kirk in Captain's Chair
From one intergalactic space-faring fictional universe into the next, we are HYPED for this wave of classic Star Trek Pops that were announced earlier this year. The wave includes Uhura, Spock, Sulu and more and we're ready to beam them all up right into our collection, Scottie! With that said, it's not hard to pick our favourite from this wave... Captain Kirk chilling in his Captain's Chair is just cool-factor overload. This is a MUST HAVE for Star Trek fans, without a doubt.
Pre-Order these Star Trek Pops now from K-Dog & Fish.
PX Exclusive Death Metal Wonder Woman
2021 marked the 80th Anniversary of Wonder Woman and much like how Funko celebrated Deadpool's anniversary, so too did Funko celebrate Diana Prince in a big way with several awesome Pops announced. With the Golden Age Wonder Woman, Superman Red Son Wonder Woman and this one, the PX Exclusive Death Metal Wonder Woman, there's certainly been no shortage of awesome Wonder Woman Pops for 2021. For now, this one remains our favourite, but rumours have been swirling about a Comic Cover Wonder Woman Pop and that one could dethrone this one for our favourite so far in 2021. We'll have to wait and see!
WandaVision's White Vision (Glow)
Marvel continues to knock it out of the park with their Marvel 'Cinematic' Universe - which now includes some fantastic new series' from Disney+. Falcon and the Winter Soldier was a huge hit and had some really great Pops. The Loki series is sure to bring us some awesome Pops as well. But it all started with WandaVision, a psychedelic trip through the sitcoms of the 50's, 60's 70's, 80's and 90's. The series brought us several amazing Pops and it was hard to narrow down our absolute favourite... the Tommy & Billy ECCC Exclusive 2-Pack and the Hot Topic Exclusive Scarlet Witch both came close... but this glow-in-the-dark White Vision Special Edition Exclusive is simply stunning. This might be one of our favourite Pops ever to be honest. The detail on the costume is unreal.
The few that we were able to get our hands on have sold out, but stay tuned to our social media channels as we will most certainly announce if we are able to bring in more.
It simply doesn't get any cooler than this. Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man suiting up from Iron Man 2 is one of the coolest Pop Deluxes we have ever seen! Add to the fact that it is a PX Exclusive and it glows in the dark and you've got what we think to be one of the most south after Pops of 2021. We definitely understand those who will be keeping it in-box, but holy jumpin' this Pop Deluxe would make an exceptional centre-piece to any Marvel Pop collection and we can't wait to see it in person!
Don't miss out on this insanely cool Pop Deluxe by Pre-Ordering yours now from K-Dog & Fish!
