It’s been a long wait for HELLBOY fans – heavens knows, custom POP! vinyl figure manufacturers have been making a roaring trade in carefully crafting Funko toys for years – but finally the company are releasing a full line of figures, based on Mike Mignola‘s demonic crusader, his pals and a couple of his arch nemesisis, ‘this Fall’.
That could mean any time from the end of September to the end of December… but so long as we get the chance to get our grubby little mitts on them before Christmas, then it’ll mean a perfect opportunity to play out the winter theme of Guillermo Del Toro‘s 2004 film (on which a number of the details of the characters are styled).
Sorry, custom builders – looks like you’re out of a gig.
From the Funko press release:
Pop! Comics: Hellboy S1
The Hellboy comic book series is joining the Funko family and receiving the Pop! vinyl treatment!
This series includes Hellboy, the vigilante Lobster Johnson, pyrokinetic Liz Sherman, and fish-man Abe Sapien.
In addition to our heroes are the evil sorcerer, Grigori Rasputin, and The Queen of Blood, Nimue!
Look for the Hellboy chase piece, Hellboy with horns. A rarity of 1-in-6.
