With Comicon International wrapping up this weekend, we finally had a chance to take a look at some of the fantastic exclusives that Funko released at the convention. It doesn’t matter what you are into, Funko absolutely covered all bases with their releases this year. They ranged the spectrum with everything from exclusive variants of Funko Pops of the Characters from Disney’s Frozen to blood splattered variants or Pulp Fiction characters and even some Funko Reaction variants or Firefly characters.
There are 86 exclusives in all, but I thought we would take a look at a few fan favorites.
Battle Damaged Luke and Wampa:
Earlier this year, Funko released the Luke in Hoth gear Pop! as well as the oversized figure of the Wampa. In this variant, Luke has his injuries that he received from the Wampa when he was knocked off of his Taun-Taun, and the Wampa has been relieved of his arm in return
Adventure Time variants:
For fans of the Adventure Time series, Funko released glow in the dark variants of both Princess Bubblegum and BMO
Funko’s Reaction line of figures is one of my favorites, as it harkens back to the old Star Wars figures from Kenner back in the early 80’s. This year Funko released a whole slew of Reaction figure exclusives at SDCC including bloody variants of Jules and Vincent from Pulp Fiction, a black and white variant of the Rocketeer, Firefly figures of Malcolm Reynolds and Jayne Cobb, a clear/bloody Predator variant, and Sloth from the Goonies complete with Superman shirt.
Walking Dead beheaded Hershel:
My personal, absolute favorite is the Walking Dead Pop! variant of Hershel Green. As if it was not enough that the Hershel Pop! is already on crutches and missing a leg, the variant edition is bloody and beheaded. While it may seem a little morbid at first, I am positive that many people are going to agree that this is the absolute favorite of the 86 exclusives.
While this only covers a small handful of what was released, it gives you a small look into what one company puts into San Diego’s Comicon International. Funko alone released 86 exclusives, and hundreds of other companies released more of their own. I personally can’t wait to get my hands on these.
