Time for another trip down memory lane with our favorite toy company, FUNKO!
BLOX "Vinyl with an Edge"
In 2011 Funko released a very interesting toy line known as BLOX Vinyl figures. They were about 7 inches tall, boxy and 2D but pulled into the 3rd dimension. (You have to look at the designs to understand) A little heavier than POPs and bulky but they stand up on two feet and look really great out of the box!
The characters that were actually produced are: Cereal Monsters, Disney, DC, Mars Attacks, Star Wars, KISS, The Simpsons, and Ugly Dolls.
I personally LOVE the BLOX line and have about 10 of them. I always wanted to get the cereal monsters, especially the metallic set! The Mars Attacks martian is by far my favorite one.
THINGS I NOTICED
NEVER RELEASED - Superman and Green Lantern - They are on the back of the Batman and Joker box.
NEVER RELEASED - Donald Duck - One mini set has Donald Duck but he was never released in full size.
NEVER RELEASED - Original Sulley - There are two Sulley SDCC exclusives but the classic blue was never released.
NEVER RELEASED - Mini Homer and Krusty are in the 2012 Funko Catalog.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM?
Unfortunately this product line was discontinued when the Funko POP line started to really pick up steam. I think they just put their focus on what was working, which makes sense. Sad for us, but clearly the right move.
