Damn. That's really disappointing to hear. I felt like these were so close to happening and then BAM, nothing. Funko and McDonalds have worked together in the past, so I think there is still a chance of it happening. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Either way, hope we get McDonald Funko pops at some point.

So do you guys really want the Funko McDonald products to happen? Well, it's not much, but contacting Funko helps. It shows that there is interest in the product and that there are those who really want it. Here, I'll make it easy for everyone.

https://www.funko.com/contact-us

Click the link, and let them know that you're interested in the product. The ball might be out of their court, but we really don't know what is happening.

Either way, send them a message, as it really couldn't hurt and it shows that this is a line that we really want to happen.

That's the spirit. The more people that Funko sees that are interested in this particular line, the more serious they might consider in terms of trying hard to get these released. There are a lot of McDonald characters fan. Speaking up, truly helps.

Maybe saving them for an anniversary date? Too many ad icons so close together that are coming out this year?

Unless there are licensing issues then all the messages would be for nothing.

True. Maybe McDonalds was asking for too much, but if there is interest shown, and Funko thinks there is a demand for their investment, then sending them messages wouldn't be useless. It would show them, there there really is a serious fan base.

I remember several years back BK used to sell video games and some watched back then as a promotion.

I really hope that McDonald’s does something similar with Funko Pops, although I’d imagine it would cause more issues with people complaining or buying all the stock.

They'll probably be released eventually as Target exclusives that hardly anyone can get.

I wonder if the MC Donald’s ad icons that were canceled will ever get put back into the que to have them made. Maybe for next year?

I hope not. I would rather not have them released, than to end up being released at target and that says a lot because I was looking forward to this set and had them preordered at gamestop :(

I have no inside information or anything, but lately they've been putting some of the sought after items there as exclusives, it seems, so it wouldn't surprise me. I'm not a liner upper and won't pay eBay prices so I'm pretty much screwed if that's the route they go, if they are ever released at all.

My best guess would be that McDonalds isn’t comfortable licensing their characters after being blamed for childhood obesity last decade. They stopped using Ronald at all a few years ago too. Maybe a little more time needs to pass before they feel comfortable again. As a brand they have been working very hard to reinvent themselves.

At this point it could be a hundred reasons why they were cancelled. The biggest question is if Funko and McDonald's will be able to find a way to make it work.

I was really bummed out when I found out these got cancelled. I had two of each ordered so I could have one in box and one oob. Hopefully they get made soon :(
Been collecting since 2012!! Absolutely love everything funko related. Current pop count of pops in my collection is over 1800 in box and out of box!!

The main line I collect is ad icons. But as soon as more myths come or expect me to go HAM on that line! Absolutely love flocked pops too!!

With how popular the Ad Icon line has become, I'm hoping Funko might be able to pay the higher price McDonald's MIGHT be asking for. Who knows what happened, but hoping something is able to be worked out.
