2020 was a strange year for the whole planet, and it looks like the start of 2021 isn’t going to go that much better. The London toy fair for example should be just around the corner and I was originally looking forward to going there for the first time as I missed it last year due to a family emergency… But let’s keep those fingers crossed for next year eh!
However Funko have decided that this isn’t good enough, and they want to still be able to make their big toy launch announcements to both the fans and the industry so they’re hosting their own toy fair virtually which is absolutely awesome of them! it’s going to be running from 19th until 29th January through their social media channels as they introduce us to their new releases for 2021 including pop vinyls, soda vinyls, paka paka, Funko games and Loungefly gear! They’ve even already confirmed that some of the franchises we can expect include Disney, Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Five Nights at Freddys, NBC Universal and Pokemon.
“Funko is always discovering new ways to surprise and delight our fans by bringing the best of pop culture directly to them. Funko Fair is all about virtually showcasing the newest products that our incredible creative team has been working on for the past several months,” said Brian Mariotti, Chief Executive Officer at Funko through their website. “This is a terrific opportunity to usher in 2021 with a fresh slate of consumer products that celebrate imagination and pop culture.”
