Grab your retro metal trays and pull out the bean bag chair, because Funko is taking over Saturday mornings’ with the launch of these highly anticipated themed cereals with premium vinyl POP! figure prizes inside! And finally this month, they’ll be available for consumption! Or to be added to your unhealthy Funko collection as the ultimate precious, (I’m looking at you Dallas Price). Whatever the case may be, and who cares really?! Just give me ten boxes of Freddy-O’s, please!
Originally reported earlier this year, the Funko blog made the official announcement today as to when, where, and the first themed cereals to roll out via this holy matrimony of sugary goodness and cereal premiums- a long-lost custom that needs to return mind you.
“In July, Mega Man FunkO’s will be available at GameStop, Cuphead & Mugman FunkO’s will be available at Hot Topic, Freddy FunkO’s will be available through Funko, Nightmare On Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger FunkO’s and Friday the 13th’s Jason FunkO’s will be available at FYE, and The Lord of the Rings FunkO’s featuring Gollum will be available at BoxLunch. Additional cereals will continue to be added throughout the year for your snacking pleasure.
And of course, to put the fun back in breakfast, each box contains a collectible prize, making the boxes as much fun to collect as they are to eat! You’ll find a collectible figure inside every box of FunkO’s, so you’re going to want two boxes – one to taste, and one to display on your shelf with your Pop! collection.”

Call the Rose Bearers for this royal reveal over at New York’s Toy Fair this weekend! It looks like Funko Pop! is bringing the Royal Prince of Zamunda and friends to its vast collection of pop culture figures line!
Straight off the Funko blog, spankin’ new Coming To America POP figures are on the way in the form of double packs, and Target exclusives according to the release announcement.
A Queens-bound Prince Akeem along with his smart-ass sidekick Semmi will be available for purchase as a double pack.
Fittingly so, a gold version of the Prince of Zamunda and the humble (when you think of garbage- think of Akeem) MacDowell’s Akeem will be Target Exclusives.
And OH MAN, last but certainly not least, you know him as Joe the policeman on the ‘What’s goin’ down’ episode of That’s My Mama. Put your hands together for Jackson Heights own! Mr. Randy Watson! Which will be available on the Funko Shop site at a date TBA.
Release dates have yet to be stated for these soon to be declared national treasures. We will update this article with release dates as they’re announced!
The Gods of hairy chest hairs have answered my prayers over at Funko.
You may, or may not have heard all about the new Jurassic Park line of Funko POP! figures coming our way amidst the film’s 25th anniversary. And those are just fine and dandy. Hell, who wouldn’t want a velociraptor POP! nestled in between Battle Armor Skeletor and our beloved Barb from Stranger Things. However, the soon to be released and appropriately named, “Wounded Dr. Ian Malcolm”, will be a Target Exclusive- and oh my God it is the most glorious thing ever.
The upcoming series of Dino-riffic pops features paleontologist Dr. Grant, Jurassic Park CEO John Hammond, (unwounded) Dr. Ian Malcolm, and embryo-smuggler Dennis Nedry. Along with dinosaur favorites, the great T.rex, Velociraptor, and Dilophsaurus with a double pack including an attacked form of Nedry coming in March and available only at Entertainment Earth.
Great, now I have to invest in another Funko shelf for the apartment.
