Funko Information

Funko‘s Toy Fair catalog leaked before the show can even begin – an incredible list of Pop!’s, Legacy and Pop! Rides figures was published to social media sites, but Funko asked that people take down the images.  Out of respect for Funko, we will not publish those images…. but we might have talked a little bit about what we saw on the podcast.  You’ll have to listen to find out.
