We love Funko Pop! Seriously. Geek culture as a whole has exploded in Funko Pop! format, and collectors couldn’t be happier. From the most obscure to the most popular properties, there exists a Funko Pop! figure for that hard-searching fan, with variations across the board for most figures. It was really only a matter of time before we saw a further expansion across mediums, and we have a new short video series from Marvel and Funko Pop! that does just that.
While the short in the description is correct, with the video clocking in under two minutes, it’s a cute little match-up between Loki, Spidey and Iron Man, which brings DK Mode to the Marvel Universe:
“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done,” says Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation and Family Entertainment. “These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them.”
“Bait N Switch” will be the next Marvel Funko Pops animated short and it will premiere on December 7. It features Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Rocket Raccoon breaking into the Collector’s museum to try and set his buddy, Groot, free. “Chimichangas,” the third animated short, will premiere on 12/14 and features Deadpool facing off against Venom!
“We are beyond excited to bring our Pop! Vinyl to life by collaborating with Marvel,” adds Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We hope fans enjoy these short films as much as they do collecting Pop!, and hopefully we’ll be able to create many more.”
“Spellbound” was an enjoyable first entry into this new project, and if anything it makes me want to add that Loki figure to my collection. What do you think of this next generation of our love for Funko Pops! and Marvel? Will you be checking out the upcoming shorts? Let us know in the comments section below!
