If it's a Pop! there are going to be a ton of them. First wave will likely be 4-6 molds, with color variants/minor alterations (like no helmet) at various locations like gamestop, best buy, etc.

It was only a matter of time, Funko is one of those things that manages to get attached to almost anything pop culture related.

If we are going down the chibi / big head + small body road, I'd much rather see an articulated Cu-poche style model myself.

edit.

Someone on Facebook has already whipped this up, which is a close enough idea of what it will look like:

Maybe, but GW is not going to be making these. They've given Funko (who makes bobbleheads of just about everything nerd-related) a license to use their IP to make these.

I think it’s hilarious - I was just commenting in another News/Rumor thread yesterday that I was shocked this hadn’t already come to pass - that GW was leaving money on the table for not having already licensed out 40K/AoS figures as Funko Pops.

Funko turns anything even slightly of pop culture value into a figure, so it wouldn't surprise me if they had approached GW a couple of times over the years before they finally caved / decided to go with it. If you're doing a 40k Monopoly game, might as well embrace it wholly.

I have the odd one from various things I like.
People go mad on collecting proper.

Also be noted they aren’t Bobbleheads, that’s a small side range they do (small in pop terms anyway).
Pop vinyl are just collectible figurines

Though originally they were a bobblehead company, it is the vinyl Side that’s huge. The Con exclusives etc, and the main range as it were.

I have bought maybe a dozen Pop! figures over the years. Just to stand on my shelf. Dredd, Alien, Predator, Conan, Batman... If I really like some movie or comic or game (like the Alien movies for example), I'll get a Pop! figure to stand on my shelf.

I will be getting one of these to represent 40K to stand on the line.

I like the Pop! figures, but am not a huge collector.

It all comes down to the sculpts and paint.

By the way, I think we all get now that many people don’t like pops. Obviously you don’t have to buy them, and I’m very sure they have no influence, whatsoever, on GW’s own production schedule. So why do you feel the need to inform the rest of the world you don’t like them? If I had to tell everyone about all the things I don’t really like, I wouldn’t get anything done.

A lot of characters are still in finecast and need plastic versions. They are investing money in funko.
I do not think that's a good business decision. I get the idea behind diversifying the market and branching out, but funko seems to be an odd choice.

Why do you have to need to tell the world that you don't care about my opinion? I don't really care about your opinion about my opinion on their venture.

I mean, if they don't have to pay anything then its great, as they would get back considerably more than they lose, thereby resulting in more funds to make models and to finally phase out finecast.
If they have do have to put a money into it, then that's a bit more tricky.

Leaving aside opinions about opinions, I’m quite sure that the whole point of Funko is that they acquire IP to make Pops and other products from. Presumably the IP owner either gets paid for granting permission, or they get paid some kind of percentage on sold Pops made from their IP. Either way, the IP owner (GW in this case) will probably spend no money on this, and apart from some minimal Marketing efforts, signing contracts and approving the Pops themselves, virtually no effort either. They will probably be making money and it will have no negative influence on their own production whatsoever.

Equally, if it’s one sculpt but a repaint only, Funko get to appeal to more than the fans of one Chapter, guaranteeing more “just buying one” sales, and they appeal to collectors wanting the set!

So to confirm, it looks like 4 Space Marine Funkos:

-SW blood claw
-Primaris (likely UM)

Too bad Funkos are HIDEOUS, or I'd get them all.
But anything that puts 40k into the "mainstream" is good by me.

It's mostly disbelief tbh. It's not like these are "proper" collectibles, they're not some holiday souvenir tied to a precious memory, they're just mass-produced shelf-tat - I think many of us just can't fathom why anyone would buy them.




There are plenty of people that cannot fathom why we pay so much for plastic men, its all subjective, who are you to say whether its a proper collectable or not ?



I am not really a fan at all but i fail to see any problem, its not like them selling a few figures is going to have any effect on anything GW or FW does, apart from maybe sell a few marines.

I'm not attacking anyone, and it's not a problem.

As for "proper collectible", what I mean is it has no scarcity. You're not buying something that has a high chance of holding or significantly improving its value, or trying to complete some defined "set", it's just a bit of plastic that sits on a shelf, like the bajillion other exact copies. And there's nothing wrong with being happy with a bit of plastic that just sits on a shelf...I just don't get it.

That's also how it differs from models, incidentally - they have a purpose beyond the simple owning of them. The reason some people struggle to grasp why we pay so much for them is that they don't grasp that, they can't see that we're not paying for "plastic men", but for the experience of assembling them, painting them, playing games with them. In short, they see them as being just like Funko Pops, but the issue there is their misperception.

Not a "proper collectable?" Go ahead and look for a Stan Lee POP! Or a Conan. Or any GenCon or Comic Con exclusive. Or the alternate colors. Or any limted release.

Its a company that does exactly "proper collectables."

These releases will not be, but the line as a whole definittley fits the mold.

Or worse. Depending your point of view.

Also everyone knows Mega Bloks will get the IP rights first because they're smart enough to hop on those things. Lego doesn't do anything overtly "violent" to an extent, which is why you'll never get close to realistic guns anymore.

They could've changed that stance since I was a teenager but that's basically what they operated as for me growing up.

And some people will buy a POP model, yet look on people with 28mm figures, no matter how beautiful they are, with utter disdain and cringing. It's all horses for courses really. It's a similar debate with AOS card game (why would you have a sleeved card when you could have a beautifully painted hero?), Dice masters, that recent board game with chits for units, or even spending money on a video game of Warhammer.

I wouldn't bring a 28mm figure to work and put on my desk. Especially not a primarch. A robust funko pop figure of a primarch, I'm totally fine with.

Maybe I'm a bad example. I have on my work desk 2 pop figures, a Godzilla figure from wizkids, a classic mickey mouse figure, and a mini-mates Alien Isolation set.

Yes I'd rather have a primarch model than a Funko Pop, but that primarch costs 5-8x the price of a Funko Pop vinyl even before taking into account things like shipping, tools and paint. And then I still wouldn't want to put such a fragile model on my desk, but rather in at home in a display cabinet where it's a lot safer from kids, dust, theft and whatnot.

These things have their charm and appeal to a lot of people (although obviously not everyone) and are in a good price bracket to make good gifts. It brings money into GW they can use to grow, so there's really no need to get ones panties in a bunch even if you don't like the look of them. Just don't get them.

I used to collect the modular buildings, which was fine when they were only $100 or even $150 once a year. Now they go up to $300, with most of them over $200. Death Star was $400 when I bought it, now $500. And they never go on sale. Not the good stuff.

I now put all my wargaming purchases in terms of LEGO. Like, bought a battleforce for $144. That's 1/2 of a LEGO Assembly Square set. Start Collecting Kharadron Overlords? 1/2 the price of a LEGO Downtown Diner. Box of 10 Necromunda miniatures? Roughly the same price as the LEGO City People Pack with 14 minifigures. That's right. Minifigures cost as much a GW miniatures.

Collectibles like Funko POP are successful because of how accessible they make franchises. They are 3 dimensional caricatures, distilling franchise icons down to a common 'language' - a more readily grasped media with little possibility of offending. The arguments for and against are the age old ones centered on some essence that's lost when something goes from niche to a wider audience.

That said... I think it'd be funny if the Marines were a bit bigger than the normal figures, and the Primaris a little bigger than the marines.

I'll probably pick one up to repaint into one of the chapters I play. If they make more I hope they do a Terminator, Genestealer, and a Bloodthirster at some point.

Krell was destroyed during the End Times by Sigvald the Magnificent and Nagash had neither the energy nor inclination to restore him. He is gone as is the World That Was.

For the record, I would rather have the Funko on my desk due to a safety issue. If someone takes the Funko or it somehow (for whatever reason, maybe someone dropped food on it) became damaged, I can easily replace the Funko.

You can't just do that with a regular 28mm figure. You'd have to do everything for it again.

Just for amusement's sake.

Unofficial Funko Pop 40k rules addendum

A Funko Pop figure is around 100mm tall, a standard Primaris Marine including the height of the base is about 42mm tall. To use the Funko Pops in a game, scale up a map and all ranges by 2.4 (or just double them if you want to keep it simple).

Inventive use of non-40k Funko Pops for the opposing force as placeholders for other 40k armies is fine.

Just a thought... most people have a certain hobby budget each month. What if they go spend that collecting 40k funko models. GW will get a % of that money from the IP rental, but they won't get the 100% they would if the customer had bought real GW models.

Product cannibalization is not a risk here. That risk happens as they launch new items each month. Deciding between Titanicus, Kill Team and Gloomspite Gitz is more likely than adding in Pops. Incremental spread of their IP is key to bring customers to core products. The funnel narrows but the $/customer increases as customers progress into the hobby.

It is ridiculous to compare the purchase of Funko or Lego products to GW models. Those other brands are pre-painted with no need for rulebooks, codex, index, chapter approved, terrain, mats, paint, glue, and all the other stuff people hemorrhage money for You actually get a complete product when you purchase a Lego set or Funko vinyl model. The only commonality is Lego-GW build instructions, which Lego's are clearly superior to GW. Lego already makes Space Marine's and other science fiction themed minis. Why would they lower themselves to Games Workshop level and pay licensing fees in the process?

Nearly identical soulless merch.. Now I would understand, why one would want a pre - painted statue of a beloved hero, at least it resembles art and might have some character. This on the other hand is basically a dummy with a particular franchise logo glued on top of it.
A grain of sand in the ocean of a future landfill. It’s just gak.

Yeah because there's no such thing as appeal with these figures and bobbleheads and the people who like them aren't as refined as you.
TFW too intelligent, amiright?

It's almost as if different people like different things.

Shocking...

Ah, I was anticipating the “plastic soldiers” type of comments, so I’m not disappointed. Wasn’t expecting “so you think you’re better than others” replies though. I would like to point out that I described my attitude just towards “funko pop” and other similliar products, not any people who like it, nor did I make any personal comments about others.
But because I strongly dislike the concept and the look and what it is, apparently I’m a baby and too full of myself. Well folks, that’s how opinions work, indeed some people have different taste for different things.
I described my opinion, hope it’s just as ok with you as someone would have said, that he “loves funko pop”. (Apparently not)

1) but it’s a plastic toy soldiers forum- well, if you don’t see the slightest difference between modeling, wargaming and Knick-knacks, I won’t begin to describe
2) your attitude sucks- sorry, not sorry to have a strong opinion on something
3) so you think you’re so “refined”- never said anything about other people, nor my “superiority” to others
4) different people like different things- indeed

So if anyone can explain to me the appeal of funko pop and other similliar “collectibles” I would be happy to learn about it in pm

What would be the point? You don't like them, and that's 100% fine. You don't have to.

If they don't appeal to you, then they probably won't ever. I certainly never wanted any right up until the point where they made them for two of my fav characters of all time (Scorpion & Sub-Zero). Since then I've had no desire to buy any more (although a Pop Carnifex may get me over the edge), and leave it at that.

What I won't do though is start calling it gak and, in essence, judge the people who do like it as a result.

Well, I believe it`s gak, so that`s why I called it that No judging of people was done on my part. If a person thinks he`s being judged because someone else despises a knick-knack he likes, there is not much I can do.

As usual, the only denizens of the 41st millennium are Space Marines.

For a starting wave, did you really expect it to be a Tau Fire Warrior, DE Wrack, Eldar Howling Banshee, and Steel Legion guardsman? Space Marines are the face of 40k.

I don't currently own and have never planned to buy any Funko Pops.

I don't currently play Dark Angels.

I am 100% likely to buy that Dark Angel Veteran Funko Pop. I think it is the shield embossment I am particularly in love with. It feels like a Watcher in the Dark armed for war.

You are not alone mate!

When I read Vinyl, Funk and Pop I though GW was releasing a phonograph record of 40k inspired funk / pop songs.

I have to get me that Space Wolf.

Also, very nice to get a little bit of insight in the design process for a licensed product like Funko. Cool that Sarah Kaiser is working on this, her work for WHC and Eagle Ordinary is great.
