Funko announced a pack of two Pop Sonic the Hedgehog figures, as well as two new flocked Pokémon figures for this year’s San Diego Virtual Comic-Con. The Sonic pack includes Tails and Super Silver, while Pokémon fans can pick up flocked (or fuzzy) Mewtwo and Vulpix figures.
Prior to this announcement, Sonic fans were able to collect two separate waves of Sonic Funko Pops. The first wave had less defined characteristics, with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles as the only characters in the collection. Sonic Funko Pops’ second wave in progress features more modern and expressive designs and includes two separate Funko Pops for Sonic (one with chaos emerald, one with a ring), Super Sonic, Shadow, Dr. and Eggman. The wave introduced other limited edition Pops, including retail-exclusive characters like a metallic Sonic, a glow-in-the-dark Sonic, and a version of Shadow holding a Chao. However, the rarest of Sonic’s second wave Funko Pop is a Super Shadow figure, which was an E3 2018 exclusive.
As far as Pokémon is concerned, collectors have so far been able to get their hands on three types of Pikachu (standard, wavy and cranky), Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Eevee, Pichu, Vulpix, Mewtwo, Mr. Mime, Rattata, Cubone and Growlithe. To date, only Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Eevee and Pichu have received special flocked versions.
In addition, Funko also announced new Funko Pops for Bakugo’s My Hero Academia, Super Saiyan God Goku from Dragon ball super, Rippley of Fortnite, DJ Steve Aoki, Jack in Disguise of Jack in the Box, and a special figure from SDCC Toucan which will be limited to 1000 pieces and distributed exclusively by the Comic-Con Museum.
Comic-Con @ Home runs from July 22 to 26.
