I agree but do feel bad for DBZ collectors. Lately with the funimation and over9k seems like a lot of their releases lately are exclusive and not easy to get lol

We might not be getting a new mold with the Flocked Kurama, but at least we know the line isn’t completely dead. Still waiting for more news about that Sasuke we heard about a while ago, but that might have been fake.

Don't get me wrong, i love DBZ and have a few. SSB Vegito is hella cool too! But there are still a lot of unmade anime hehe. just saying.

Love the scott pilgrim set too though it took a while to complete. Funko releasing one evil ex per con! Haha. I wonder if they have run out of Scott Pilgrim to release since the evil exes are done. unless they make Scott's friends as well?

I didn't pre order the Super Saiyan Gooku 3 and Super Sayian 2 Gohan from Gamestop and I cannot seem to locate them anywhere at local stores. It seems that more these days if you don't pre order a Gamestop exclusive itis almost impossible to find them. The stores used to carry at least 4-10 exclusives at the first release but they do not do this anymore which I find weird.

Does anyone notice or have this issue with Gamestop and their Exclusives ?


I noticed this with my stores, I haven't seen the flocked Hedwig anywhere.


It looks like I learned my lesson and I'm going to need to pre order any Gamestop Pop that I want versus trying to catch it on the release day at the store. This is the second time I have struck out and been forced to resort to Ebay. :mad:

I'm pretty disappointed in the Flocked Kurama versus a new Naruto Character or the Sasuke with Scar that we saw on a cheat sheet.
I think I am going to be passing on the flocked Kurama since I have the regular and the GITD Kurama Mode Kurama. I don't need a 3rd one with him being flocked.

Funko we want new characters and not just fuzzy fabric put on existing molds.

Sincerely, your loyal Anime fans.

I am a diehard DBZ fan and I agree with you. It has been nothing but DBZ drops and there is so many other Anime's that they could create instead of creating another Star Wars line with DBZ.

Can’t argue with those. So many characters that Funko can make pops for in the Naruto line

They could legit put out a wave of only Akatsuki members and I think it would sell like hot cakes!

My husband is a huge Naruto fan. He started reading the manga when he was a kid so it has a huge nostalgia factor for him. I agree with other posters that while the flocked Kurama isn’t a brand new mold, they may be at least testing the waters to see if there is still interest in the Naruto line.

There's a huge crowd for Naruto! Not sure why Funko hasn't made another run.

Yeah, I have been seeing a lot of that lately too. I have been ordering my pre orders online and having them shipped to my home instead of the store. This way it can only be stolen or lost by the shipping company and not the retail store employee.

Sad to say I think its more to the show finishing. But a Rock Lee pop would look crazy awesome.


I want to agree with this. The show was amazing but I think because its finished theres not much hype around it. MHA is hot right now so it makes sense to make figures that will sell. Would be nice to get more characters though. I feel the same way with the bleach line. Glad they released 3 more at least.

Yeah I couldn’t agree more with the idea of selling what’s hot right now aka MHA and with the Broly movie coming out we will most likely continue seeing a huge influx of DBz pops. Even if we got one new Naruto pop a year I would be happy lol

Something tells me we're going to see one or two new Broly pops in the near-ish future.

And going along with the "what's hot" discussion, outside of a handful of really popular characters like Rock Lee I think any new Naruto pops would be Boruto characters.

Yeah I could definitely see the Naruto line transitioning to Boruto. I wouldn’t be upset, but they’d be missing the boat on soooo many amazing characters!

Funko is definitely milking with DBZ/DBS hype!! I don't mind that since DB is one line that I focus to have 100% minus PA.

I definitely don't mind they do more Naruto characters and other anime as well!!

My main hope is that they do other characters instead of reiterations of current ones. I don't need anymore Naruto or Kurama variants when I still don't have an Itachi or Hinata.

I agree but do feel bad for DBZ collectors. Lately with the funimation and over9k seems like a lot of their releases lately are exclusive and not easy to get lol


I'm okay with the onslaught of Dragonball but I really do hope they put emphasis on other anime as well. I like the fact that they dropped a new Full Metal Alchemist wave along with exclusive as well as those Bleach exclusives. Definitely satisfactory.

I like that there's more variety now, but there's much more unexplored territoy. Slam Dunk, Ranma, YuyuHakushou, etc. Old School. Haha. But i better be careful for what i wish for. Wallet's gonna bleed.
