Ad Icons Line

Postby CJEscandell » Wed Feb 01, 2012 4:26 pm

Are there any plans to release more of the Ad Icons? As much as I love Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Boo Berry, I would love to see more ad icons!

What is your wishlist?

I'd love to see Tony the Tiger and the Jolly Green Giant. Maybe Ronald McDonald

These have been done as Wacky Wobblers (Sprout was done, but not the Jolly Green Giant, while Tony Tiger was done as a wobbler and a 12" talking wobble bank. Ronald, along with several of his friends - and the Grimace - became Wacky Wobblers as well). Check 'em out!!!! They'd go well with any Pop! collection. :D

Nooooo! I can't start changing toy lines like that! Gotta remain faithful to my Pops. That way, if they don't make them, then my wallet can breathe a sigh of relief.

I think a line of Cereal Mascot POPS would be awesome, but Funko will never do it. They stopped with the advertising icons several years ago.

Imagine a Florida Orange Bird POP, a Mr Clean POP, a Maytag Repairman POP with a little washing machine, The travelocity Gnome POP, A Reddy Kilowatt POP,.................

No just those five. They were based off of the Remco figures from the 70's. (which also had Big Mac and the Professor, sadly they were not made with the updated versions)

There was a sixth figure, the "evil" four armed Grimace, from when he first appeared that was an exclusive.

BTW I am astonished I know all this.

Oh yeah, wasn't the Big Mac a cop or something along the lines? I don't recall the professor, I'll have to google that.

Thanks for the info, I'm glad you do know all this, to keep me informed! :)

More Ad icons

Postby DracoDraconis » Tue Feb 26, 2013 8:45 am

I think it would be great if they made more of those iconic ad charcters from our childhood. Like for example they could do a McDonald's line and have Ronald, Grimace, Hamburgler, Early Birdie and a Fryguy. There's plenty others that they could do that would be awsome aswell like the A&W bear, and Lucky from lucky charms. What are your thoughts?

Postby BFarr14 » Tue Feb 26, 2013 8:49 am

I def agree with this! Nothing sparks up nostalgia like ads from when we were kids. There are tons of other cereal characters that should be done as well as other company mascots. I'm sure Brian has plenty of great ad ideas in the works.

Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy would be at the top of my list to complete the monsters set. After that, Pillsbury Doughboy, Green Giant, Lucky Charms, Cap'n Crunch and Tony the Tiger. Snap, Crackle and Pop would also be perfect. Pop the Pop!

We've already got General Mills Cereal characters in Pop form, all we need to do is expand that.

We have Buzz the Honey Nut Cheerios Bee.
Lucky from Lucky Charms
Cookoo from Cocoa Puffs
Chip the Dog (now he's a wolf but whatever) from Cookie Crisp
Trix Rabbit
the Cinnamon Toast Crunch guy (Wendell?)

There is 6 right there, enough for a set for sure.

I have always wondered why they made only three Ad POPs. I would of thought there would have been market for more of the iconic Ad figures. Big boy POP or Snap, Crakle, Pop POPs. That would have been a great question to have asked Brian at the Toy Fair.

i'm fairly certain that this came up before, months ago, and brian said that the cereal monsters didn't sell well. (probably why they were retired.) at the time, he said that no other ad icons were in the works. that could have changed by now, but we certainly have not heard of anything in the pipeline.
