There’s one train I’m convinced can’t be stopped, and it’s called Funko. The company rolls out Pop! figures for new franchises and characters in such a rapid fashion that it’s hard to keep up. Avid Funko Pop! collectors have probably had to add entire wings to their homes by now in order to display everything. And they’ll have to make room for at least two new vinyl figures. We’re happy to exclusively reveal that Funko is releasing a holiday version of the popular dancing Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy as well as Director Phil Coulson and his beloved, red flying car Lola from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Little Groot is as adorable as ever, and given that it was hard to find Groot toys around the holidays last year, I like seeing a specially themed edition of the toy. He’s all festive and stuff with a green pot wrapped in a red bow. If you order Holiday Dancing Groot, you need to think of a holiday song to substitute for “I Want You Back.”
Director Coulson isn’t really complete without his ride. The figure is part of the Pop! Rides line, which includes well known vehicles such as Ecto-1 and the DeLorean–Lola is in esteemed company. She deserves it. Please note this version Coulson and Lola do not actually fly unless you move them with your hands.
Groot will be available in September, and Director Coulson and his Lola will be available in October. Do you plan on getting either or both of them? Let me know in the comments.
