Where's the new Vynl.?

Postby mohawkjones » Fri Apr 19, 2019 4:28 pm

With just Neville & Luna left to be released, where are the new announcements/solicitations? Endgame is almost here, I was hoping we might see a couple of sets but nada yet.

Deathstroke/Nightwing and Man-At-Arms are still MIA. The monsters need Boo Berry to keep them company. There was that Wes Anderson leak that never materialized. SDCC announcements are on the horizon, hoping we see a few sets again like last year.

They seem to be selling poorly, lots of sets being clearanced for $4.99 at ThinkGeek and Target.

They seem to have tapered off...the number of products seems to be mostly pops at this point.

I love em, but the hype is still Pops... people just don't want anything else. I want to say the only other thing that Funko puts out that people gobble up consistently are the Mystery Minis.

I know, that hype train is still unreal with no sign of slowing down. While I dig pops, you know my jam is Hikari & Vynl. It's a bummer to keep ending up on the losing team. :smt120

I really like Vynl for the NBX-mas set. I would be sad if it ended and we never got Zero hopefully they’ll release another set.

It's such a bummer.. Hikari and Vynl are totally the more "designer" styles, but the people who would buy these lines hate Funko. It's a totally vicious cycle we'll probably not see the end of.

I like Vynl, it’s a mixture of cartoony stylized but still keeps the essence of the characters.

Which is a shame for a couple of reasons.

1 - Vynl are way better looking than pops.
2 - Funko needs new lines and products to keep things fresh. If all they make are pops, it's only a matter of time before collectors burn out on the sameness of it all.

Definitely, people "get out of the game" even after just a year of collecting. I'm not sure what Funko can do though to appeal to the hipster/designer toy crowd but also still appeal to the masses through Pop.

Totally agree with Steph on #2. I love lots of different lines by Funko. Some are hits while others are misses but Vynl is a big hit with me.

I really don't know what Funko will make (if they do) to really overcome the popularly of pops. It's going to have to be something really special though.

I think the Vynls are badass. They are much cleaner version of products. I just wish they would make more. There are just a few I have that need that 1 last 2pack to make it complete

I don’t think it’s a lost cause. We got a like 3 sets for NYCC. Maybe they’re keeping them con exclusive until people grow to like them more?

I have seen plenty of sets on clearance. I plan on going back and grabbing a few before they are gone too tbh.

A little old-timey perspective....pops got clearanced out of Target after the first DC and Marvel Series, and didn't come back for a year or two. Disney pops got clearanced out of the Disney stores after their first or second series, too. It took a while for pops to take off.

Also...saw a Buzz and Woody set at somewhere over the weekend.

That could be true, it might take a while for them to become popular if they do end up getting popular.

I feel like anything two-pack will have a hard time gaining traction. They're just awkward to display in my opinion, unless you have a bunch of them to display together.

But they can't make them singles, because that defeats the premise of this line.

Figured I’d post here since it’s newer but man they did a great job on the Cheech and Chong Vynl. Don’t get me wrong I’ll take them in pop form but I’m beyond satisfied with the Vynl. versions. Best part they are already automatically in a 2pk.

I really like this line and hope to see it take off. I imagine it’s not easy to get retail space on the shelves and I have noticed that my Target barely carries much other than Pops and my Walmart has completely phased Funko out.

I think they are going the same as dorbz. not many people are interested in them probably going to slow down on them and most releases will be con/ funko shop releases would be my guess

Yeah, I noticed my own collection is leaning more toward the Vynl line. That Cheech and Chong is making the collection for sure. So well done.

Let’s keep squeaking like the oily wheel we can be. Keep supporting the line and hope for the best. Like Vynl is the best.

I agree it’s been kind of quite on the vynl front, seems like more dorbz are coming out. I’m sure we’ll see some new vynl sets make their way into the rotation of new releases of Funko products. lol

100% agree with this. If I’d seen Vynl back in the day and had to choose, would totally choose Vynl over Pops. Could be an issue of lack of space, I’ve been holding back on buying a lot because of this. I don’t have the space to display all my pops in my room and have to rotate the the collection instead.

I have noticed I hadn't seen any announcements lately and hoped it wasn't facing the same fate as Dorbz (another line I love) but I feel Vynl is. Hopefully it will still get some love in the con/exclusives arena.
