Funko partners with Pokémon

Published on: 16th July 2018

The Pokémon Company and Funko have teamed up for the first time to create a line of Pokémon Funko Pop! figures.

The toy collection will feature a selection of 4″ stylised vinyl figures including Pokémon characters such as Pikachu and more. A Pikachu figure will be available in a 10″ scale.

Colin Palmer, vice president, marketing, The Pokémon Company International, commented: “Pokémon is always looking for the best ways to deliver its popular characters to its fans and the timing is perfect to team up with Funko. We can’t wait to deliver the most iconic Pokémon, Pikachu, to fans of both the franchise and the immensely popular Funko Pop! figures with this launch.”

The Pokémon Funko Pop! figures are set to hit store shelves later this month.
