Introducing Vynl. by Funko! First Drop at #SDCC2017
FUNKO PRESS: "There’s no “i” in Vynl. because there’s always two of them!
Funko is proud to introduce Vynl., a brand new line of stylized vinyl collectibles created with pop culture fanatics in mind! Vynl. will take a new approach to collecting by showcasing the intricate relationships between beloved characters through a playful new aesthetic and display-ready collector packaging. As this new line of figures is centered around character relationships, every Vynl. release will contain two figures in order to highlight the connection between both characters and play off of their respective storylines."
FUNKO PRESS CONTINUED: "Vynl. figures will utilize thoughtful and imaginative design to elaborate on the emotional bonds between some of the most cherished characters in pop culture. Though Vynl. figures will derive from countless realms, storylines, and universes, Funko will maintain a consistent design aesthetic ensuring all Vynl. figures look spectacular when displayed together.
This exciting new line will make its debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 with Batgirl and Poison Ivy. Then, later this summer, you’ll be able to collect Freddy Krueger & Jason, Sally & Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and He-Man & Trapjaw from The Masters of the Universe. More amazing two-packs are scheduled to arrive between now and the end of 2017."
Regular readers of this blog (or folks just interested in Stranger Things) might remember the form(s) designed (see montage below) by Kibooki of A Large Evil Corporation (who also designs Funko’s “Vinyl Idolz”-product line)!
Design renders by @kibooki for characters seen in #StrangerThings on #Netflix - done circa 2016. Will these be made #Vynl un Funko’s latest product line (Announced #onTOYSREVIL: http://bit.ly/2sw5c1v)? Do YOU want them to be made in toy-reality? :) #toynews #mediatoys #licensedtoys #aevilcorp #alargeevilcorporation #kibooki
… so while some might baulk at the form design, this might well be a boon for fans clamouring (so I assume … why make things no one wants to buy, innit? :p) for MORE! … So would a “Stranger Things” line-up be far behind? :)
I’d recommend you stay connected with Kibooki on Instagram and Twitter to see what other designs he has created!
