Let’s Talk About Funko Brands & What’s New in Summer 2019

Welcome back to the blog! It’s been a while since we wrote about starting your own Funko Pop! collection, so we thought we’d dive a little deeper into the different product lines from Funko. Plenty of collectors seek out the lesser-known Funko brands like Dorbz and Rock Candy, but of course Pop! Vinyl is still the most popular. And speaking of Pops, you wouldn't believe how many cool new figures that Funko's been designing at their top-secret facility deep within the Earth’s core! So let’s talk about the various Funko brands and also look at what’s new from Funko. After all, it’s the first day of summer and both Child’s Play and Toy Story 4 come out today, so it’s the perfect time to chat about our favorite plastic (and vinyl) toys!

What are the different Funko brands or lines?

Funko has a variety of brands or product lines, including:

  • Pop! Vinyl is Funko’s most popular brand of collectibles. The Pop! Vinyl line includes both bobbleheads and vinyl figures. There are also Pops with vehicles named Pop! Rides.
  • 5 Star collectibles are somewhere between Pops and action figures. Each figure can be posed and they all come with an animal companion or prop.
  • Vynl is a line of collectible figures that all share a similar cartoony design aesthetic. Vynl figures always come in pairs.
  • Hikari is Funko’s line of “Sofubi” Japanese soft vinyl figures. These limited edition figures are colorful and glittery.
  • Rock Candy is Funko’s brand of 5” vinyl figures. These figures all come in a cool power pose and feature a stylized aesthetic.
  • Wacky Wobblers is Funko’s line of bobblehead figures. They were also the very first product line!
  • Vinyl Idolz is a line of tall, stylized figures designed by Vinyl Sugar, which was a collaboration between Funko and UK studio A Very Large Evil Corporation. Funko would later acquire A Very Large Evil Corporation, which then rebranded as Funko Animation Studios.
  • Dorbz is Funko’s line of miniature collectibles. They are all designed to look happy and adorable, hence the name “dorbz”.

Other New Funko Pops in 2019

Game of Thrones Funko Pop Vinyl Figures and More

Daenerys on the Iron Throne PopJon Snow PopWhite Walker on Horse Pop
Alien 40th Anniversary Ripley PopAlien Xenomorph PopIT Pennywise with Dog Tongue

Well, Game of Thrones is over and reactions are mixed. Dany got a few brief moments on the Iron Throne, which we can all remember in Pop form. There’s also a Pop of Jon Snow on the Iron Throne…for some reason? Maybe to throw everyone off? Or just dream of what could have been? Anyways, there’s a whole new wave of Game of Thrones Pop! Vinyl so you can reenact how you wish the show had ended. We’re also excited to see Alien Pop! Vinyl for the film’s 40th anniversary!

There are so many new Pops coming out that we couldn’t hope to include them all. Did we mention your favorites? Did you still have questions about the different Funko brands? Let us know in the comments. And be sure to check out our Funko collectibles for all the newest figures!
