Funko has announced that it will be releasing a new line of Pop! figures in February based on the British Monarchy. The line will feature the Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II (with corgi), Price Charles, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. A chase variant of Diana in a red gown will also be available.
Funko states that the Pop! Royals! figures are unofficial, and have not been endorsed or approved by the British Monarchy.
14 new Minecraft Funko Pop! Figures will be available starting this February. One of the newest video game franchises to be added to the Funko lineup, the series will feature figures of notable characters from the game, such as Steve, Alex, Skeleton, Creeper and Ocelot.
Many of the figures will be exclusive to stores that have recently struggled with sales and attracting foot traffic, such as GameStop and Toys R Us.
Released in 2011, and owned by Microsoft since 2014, the game has sold more than 27 million copies since its launch.
A new Pop! Figure from Funk featuring Saga’s Alana, along with baby Hazel in her arms, is slated to reach specialty store shelves in the Spring.
The Funko Pop! line for Saga was announced in October and will be released in February, 2018.
While not as mainstream as comics released by DC and Marvel, Saga has become one of the best selling independent series currently in print.
Expect pricing to be around $10.

A tie up between Nike and Medicom has seen the release of a New Nike SB shoe along with matching 100% and 400% BE@RBRICK figures. Entitled Nike SB Dunks Low Elite x Medium Toy, the collaboration is the latest from the two companies, that have been partners for more than 15 years.
Announced by professional skater Theotis Beasley on his Instagram, the shoe was released on Black Friday. Given the prices the shoe is already fetching on eBay, it is safe to say that it no longer is available at retail. Sold separately, expect to pay about $175 for the shoes, and more than $200 for the 100% and 400% BE@RBRICKS.
