Funko, PEZ team up for new collectibles

The maker of Pop! vinyl figurines is joining up with the candy company to make new dispensers that will utilize Funko’s art style.
December 21, 2017

Funko has joined forces with candy dispenser company PEZ to create a line of dispensers featuring the toy company’s Pop! art style. Featuring Pop! heads on varying dispensers, the line will be available in the US and Canada. It will be sold by Funko, with licensing under the PEZ name.

Expected to hit shelves during the first half of 2018, the dispensers will be sold in a collector window box meant for display. The characters will be announced in the coming months.

In related news, Funko has launched another episode from its second season of animated shorts with Marvel and A Large Evil Corporation. (Funko bought A Large Evil Corporation earlier this month.) The second season consists of eight episodes featuring Marvel superheroes and villains like Thor, Loki, Hulk, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, Sider-Gwen and more. The newest short entitled “Time to Unwind” is available now on YouTube.

Funko has had a big year, moving its vinyl figurines beyond speciality stores and into mass-market retailers like Walmart and Toys “R” Us, as well as recently opening a 90,000-square-foot office space that also houses a flagship store and pop-culture events in Everett, Washington.
