    This has not been officially announced yet, however, a user on the Funko Reddit randomly found a Pikachu Pop figure at a Target in Ohio. This was apparently not supposed to leave the warehouse yet, let alone be sold to the public, so an announcement is likely happening very soon.

    No matter what your thoughts might be on Funko products, this is pretty big.

    It should be noted that the Pikachu Pop is a Target-exclusive. Whether or not that means that all Funko Pokemon products are exclusive to Target is not yet known but the rumor is that they will also be receiving a 10" version as well.


    Keep in mind that this means more than Pop figures. There is a good chance that there will be other products as well, such as Mystery Minis (a blind box toy line) and Dorbz. Examples of those below:

  8. Interestingly enough, that Pop's eyes actually [kinda] work.

    People like the products and purchase them using their country's currency of choice.

    It's the usual attitude you see on the internet: popular thing is popular. People who happen to dislike popular thing get strangely angry at it simply existing.

    Rinse and repeat.

    I really dislike the Pop! line of figures, but they do make some genuinely nice stuff sometimes. Had to stop myself from picking these up when I was out one day.

    Hm, I can't think of one off hand.

    Pokemon is likely different because of The Pokemon Company. It's doubtful you'll see Nintendo brands like Mario and Zelda. (Though if I am missing one, feel free to correct me.)

    Target employees are going to go through hell with the die hard Pop collectors this year. Between PIkachu and the 10" Dino Ultrazord from Power Rangers, I feel bad for them.

    Finally! Gonna be super hard to get though.

    I always admire how you deal with the endless Funko hate, Zeo. One of the few brave ones to venture out of the OT into the sea of anger over $10 plastic figures.

    Hate their design, but good for the people who want a little collectible of their favorite character. Not all of us can put down 80$ for a scale figure.

    Haha. It's annoying how angry some people can get over $8 toys but this is pretty big news and it sucks to have it relegated to the Funko OT. It is what it is.
