FUNKO TOY Company is Finally Making BATMAN Merchandise!!

OK, as both a Toy Collector & Dealer for many years I have totally been in love with a toy company named FUNKO. They make those really cool "Wacky Wobblers" or Bobble Head Nodders. The company has been around a few years now & there are literally hundreds of these nodders that they have made. They're really great! In recent years they have expanded their line of toys with other items like Small Plastic Figures, Toy Banks, PC Computer Monitor "Sitters", & even Plush Toys. Well, awhile back, here at the Bat-Blog, we reported that Funko was coming out with Justice League Plush Dolls. As soon as I heard that news I knew that they finally got the "DC Comics" license. You see, they have been making Marvel Comics Nodders for a few years now. So, here's the great news! It looks like they will be coming out with a few brand-new Batman items!! The 1st picture is a "Wacky Wobbler" where Batman's head wobbles on a Batmobile Car Body ( instead of the standard "human body", like most nodders ). They have made a few of these with characters like Rat Fink, Betty Boop, & even Count Chocula, among others. The next picture, showing the Dark Knight perched on the edge of something, that's a "Computer Sitter". It's a small plastic figure designed & balanced to sit on the top edge of you PC Monitor. I'm showing one that they made of Spiderman, as an example. There is also a rumor that they will make some "Funko Force" Figures of Batman as well. That's what that picture of Ironman is there for, to show an example. They are very small figures that have a weird "sort-of cartoon" look. I think they're releasing these slower selling products with Batman 1st & will later come out with a ton of regular nodders...which, WILL BE AWESOME!! So, be sure to stay tuned to the Bat-Blog for all future news, photos, & release dates ( I'm excited! ).
