The new collectibles line from Funko and PEZ has hit shelves at US retailers BoxLunch and Hot Topic. The Pop! PEZ range—candy dispensers featuring Funko’s Pop! art style—will launch with additional retailers in the coming months.
The line’s first offerings include Marvel characters Deadpool, Magneto, Cable, Thor, Hulk, Loki, Star-Lord and Yondu. Comic book writer Stan Lee (co-creator of characters like Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and Black Panther) is also featured in the line. On August 25, BoxLunch and Hot Topic are also launching a number of exclusive Funko collectibles. A black and red Deadpool Pop! PEZ dispenser and a Star-Lord Funko Pop! figure in gold will be available through BoxLunch while a blue and yellow Deadpool Pop! PEZ dispenser will launch with Hot Topic.
The Pop! PEZ dispensers are packaged in a collector window box meant for display. The range is sold by Funko, with licensing under the PEZ name.
In other Funko news, the toymaker recently secured its first-ever licensing deal with The Pokémon Company International. The agreement saw fan-favorite Pokémon character Pikachu become available as a Funko Pop! vinyl figure for the first time when it launched as a Target exclusive on July 29.
