I would definitely sport a Funko backpack. I don't know much about Loungefly, but this sounds like awesome news for Funko.

Interesting and perfect match up here. I have eyed so many LoungeFly products but never caved in and bought. That might need to change! lol

I think I've seen some of their bags at BoxLunch.

Interesting that Funko has grown large enough to be the one acquiring other companies. I recall Brian saying in an interview last year that they were prepping the company to possibly get acquired.

This could be really interesting. Loungefly has some great stuff. This is a neat opportunity to see some really cool Funko branded merchandise.

Very interested to see where this goes. Loungefly is a fixture at a lot of Cons and plenty of great pop culture gear themselves.

This is very interesting. But considering how popular the Tee's are I don't see this being anything but successful.

I love this news! I'm hoping this means we could see more Funko apparel designed for women's figures. I wear the heck out of my FYE Star Wars tees they produced last year. Unfortunately, majority of Star Wars apparel is men's sized or at best, unisex. I had to hack a Target Deathtrooper tee to fit me haha.

Looks like we're on the right track and headed towards becoming a multi-faceted pop-culture company. Seems to me Funko is thinking "Big" (or "Bigger") and "Future". Love this company--and like the rest of you, I'm all for it!
GO FUNKO!!! This does look like a good match :ptp:
