Funko X-Men POP Vinyls & Dorbz Up for Order on Amazon!

UPDATE 11/1/2016: Amazon has now listed all of the winter 2016/2017 Funko X-Men POP Vinyls and Dorbz figures for order, with a shipping/release date of December 12th 2016. So if you’ve been wanting these figures guaranteed to arrive in time for you to give them out at Christmas gifts (or to give to yourself), it looks like Amazon is the way to go!

ORIGINAL: It certainly seems like we are on the verge of a major boom in X-Men toys, figures and collectibles being released in the market after years of pining by collectors, and if there’s one company who looks to be getting ready to give the X-Men their due more than any other, it’s Funko! Funko teased over a dozen new X-Men POP Vinyls and Dorbz earlier this fall, and this week, hi-res images of Psylocke, Archangel, Quicksilver and more have finally appeared!

As far as new-to-Funko characters go, Psylocke may be the biggest headliner of these series! The British telepath in an Asian ninja body Betsy Braddock is among the most popular Marvel female characters, and it’s great to see her getting the limelight in super-deformed toy form.

POP Psylocke is dressed to kill (literally), as she comes packing both a katana sword and her trademark psyblade. I think the psyblade would have looked a lot cooler in translucent plastic instead of just being covered in plain pink paint, but she looks delightfully deadly nonetheless. Note the translucent stand under her, though–it doesn’t look like Psylocke will be able to stand unassisted.

Collectors have been crying out for a movie Quicksilver from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but unfortunately it looks like that’s simply never going to happen. Better a comics Quicksilver POP Vinyl than nothing though, right…?

I think the Mohawk Storm was more visually interesting, but there’s likely to be a larger market for Jim Lee Storm in white costume.

funko-dark-phoenix-dorbz-figure-x-menDoes anyone think there’s a chance that Funko won’t repaint this Dark Phoenix Dorbz figure into both green and white Phoenix costumes for future exclusive/chase releases…?

funko-dorbz-cyclops-figure-x-men-series-boxThe Cyclops Jim Lee costume is among my favorite costumes ever, so I’m always glad to see it make a return. I also think this Dorbz Cyclops actually looks a lot cuter than the POP counterpart, honestly.

funko-dorbz-emma-frost-x-men-figure-in-boxOf course, the love triangle is complete with this Emma Frost Dorbz figure!

Logan will have his fiercest adversary to brawl with (or maybe hug, considering the style of these Dorbz vinyls) when Sabertooth bursts on the scene in his classic 90’s costume as well. I never thought I’d see the day when I’d call Saberooth “cute”, but, well, here it is.

The Sabertooth POP Vinyl figure has yet to be officially revealed in hi-res photos, but I think we can safely assume that that figure will look a little, uh, “angrier” than the Dorbz.

There are also X-Men POP Vinyls of Cable, Mohawk Storm and Logan that have yet to have hi-res images found (and any of which could end up being store exclusives). Stay tuned for those soon.

x-men-dorbz-cyclops-figure-jim-lee-costumeThe Funko X-Men Dorbz and POP Vinyls figures are expected to go up for order later this month, and should be released around the end of 2016/start of 2017. Fans have been demanding more X-Men toys, and if sales of the Marvel Legends X-Men series from earlier this year are any indication, this just may end up being one of the hottest Funko sub-series ever. Don’t sleep on these–these figures are going to sell like wildfire when they hit stores.

What do you think of the first mass-market figures for the new Funko X-Men Dorbz Series and POP Vinyls, Marvel collectors? Are these the sickeningly cute X-Men figures that you’ve been waiting for, or do you think that Funko missed the mark with their designs or selections for this assortment?

Funko X-Men POP Vinyls & Dorbz Up for Order on Amazon! — 7 Comments

  1. Glad we’re finally getting Quicksilver! Was there some sort of marketing issue with the Age of Ultron version? I remember there being precious little in the way of merchandise. No Funko. No Marvel Legend. I think it was pretty much the Hot Toys figure and minis from Lego and Minimates right?

  2. I saw some of these pics a while ago and the only one that disappoints me is the Archangel pop. They should have included some sculpting detail rather than just painting on his suit, And even then they neglected to paint some details such as the wristbands.

  3. Archangel POP!? OMG He’s my second favorite X-Men! Archangel and Cyclops!!!! He can be best buds with my Cyclops pop, and Cyclops Dorbz! These are good signs, X-Men being on pop figures and marvel legends. I hope this means good thing with the movies, X-Men Apocalypse was a huge step backwards and FF was a hot mess, maybe Fox finally conceded and working on a deal with Marvel like Sony did with Spiderman.

  4. The Psylocke POP looks very cool but it is disappointing she has to have the stand to stand up. Every figure I’ve got that has the stand eventually starts falling over and won’t stay in the stand anymore. I guess she will stay in the box.

  5. I think Psylocke has a stand because the feet of female Pops are so small they fall over constantly. Spider Gwen is always falling over. Her feet are tiny!

    • Yeah Agent Carter is so heavy she won’t stand up on her own! The female POPs have tiny, cheap-feeling bodies now when they didn’t used to. I have Mystique and Winter Solider Black Widow and their bodies are the same size as the male figures so they stand up fine.

  6. Amazon is the worse place to order Pops from though. I’ve ordered a few and the boxes always come damaged with absolutely no damage to the shipping box. Which clearly means that they shpiped them even though they knew it was garbage. Once, I received 2 replacement Pops of the same figure and they were worse than the previous ones. So if you’re an out of box collector then go all out ordering from amazon, but stay clear if you like to display your Pops in the box.
