Which is so unfortunate because the Dark Phoenix Rock Candys were two of the best figures Funko has produced. The poses and fire base are really cool.


Yes they were but I think when a movie doesn't do well it flows into the merchandise too, which is sad :-s


That is the truth there, even how good the merchandise is.

That’s what even hurts more when the merchandise is better than the actual movie

I usually see one of my local HT with Rock Candy stock all the time. Not as big of a hit around here.

Just wanted to share some pics of my only Rock Candy. I think the sculpt, detail, and stance of this one is pretty cool!

Save the Rock Candy!!! I'd love more characters I love in this style. I'd love to see Beverly from It or maybe even MLP characters.

Beverly would be interesting especially with a chase

Same here, but it looks like they are already stopping the Rock Candy line. :( Don't see any new releases from the last month or so.

It's going to suck if they don't drop these final two characters to finish off the line. They could at least drop them as Funko Shop Exclusives.
