I bugged him about Hikari last year at SDCC. He said the line was not dead but on the back burner to give more resources to higher profile lines. I know it has to be tough to divert resources to Hikari when the ROI on Pops! is so much higher.
Now if you could ask him about what is up with Vynl I would love hear what he has to say...
Yeah also I think part of it is (and this is a rumor) Mindstyle and Funko have a different relationship now...not sure if they were the ones actually producing hikari but I'm sure these things play into it, like how Super7 ended up doing their thing independent of funko with the figures that they still produce...Mindstyle had a ton of good stuff at Toy Fair but I don't think any of it had the Funko imprint or we'd have heard about it
