I really miss Rock Candy ….. anyone else?

Postby Pop_A_Razzi » Thu Apr 28, 2022 2:35 am

I have no idea why Rock Candy didn’t get the love they certainly deserve ! The details and beauty are in my mind one of the best things dropped from Funko …. Anybody else miss them ? If they were around who would you like to see ?
Id love to have some music icons and maybe anime girls

You with me ? Lol

After seeing some Fantastic Beasts Rock Candy, I got the feeling I should have given them more attention when they were the new kid on the block. Too little too late sadly.

I absolutely miss Rock Candy! I have all the Disney and Harry Potter/Fantastic Beast ones. I thought they had an amazing amount of detail and were perfect! I always looked forward to seeing what was going to come next, but I feel like Fantastic Beasts or Wreck It Ralph were around the last ones, since those films released in the same month/year.

We have a few Rock Candy figures in our collection, but my interest in this line altogether kind of trickled away. Maybe a limited le edition of some ad icons can change this. lol

Rock Candy was one of the first lines that drew me to Funko. And I was one of the only ones in my local friend group that liked them so everyone usually gave me theirs lol I do wish I had gotten more early on. I never saw Jessica Rabbit until she was high in price on ebay, I would have totally snapped her up!

Yes! I have Dany from GOT and love her. I've had my eye on Starfire for the longest time and now her price has shot up. They were a great line.

Oh yes! The details is impressive on these. The giant Newt Rock Candy at Funko Hollywood swayed me to appreciating them more.

They did have a bombshells Starfire ( which was a great line!), but I meant the common Teen Titans Go one. The funko app has it at $45 for some reason.

I think they might have done better if they had a more unique packaging. When a lot of collectors are in box, we want more variety. I don't know... just an opinion.

I actually came to this section of the forum just to make this exact same post! I totally miss Rock Candy. Really bummed they didn't seem to do as well as was hoped. They had such fun designs, and there are so many characters that would look really great in the Rock Candy style.

Hope they make a comeback some day!

I also wish they had continued the Rock Candy line. I have all of the Game of Thrones ones and my husband has the MotU ones. Love the scale and the details.

I think Ramona Flowers, the comfy princesses (from Wreck-It-Ralph 2), Jessica Rabbit, and Furiosa are my favorite Rock Candy figures.

They were so pretty. I only have Moxxxi and Ripley, but I always had hopes that we would see a Cortana from Halo.

I completely agree with you, I loved the Rock Candy line, just like I loved the Dorbz line, now I don't say anything so that I don't jinx the line :roflmao:

I really enjoyed the Rock Candy line, they nailed shehulk/ red she hulk but I think the Mighty Thor Rock candy would be my number one, the style and face on MT are perfect.

And Newt Scamander, his rock candy was adorable.

Along with there being so many other comic gals I would have liked to see I agree with everyone else who said Star Wars, they would have made for some cool figures, I think they would have made an amazing ahsoka in the RC style.

I viewed them as a nice half way between a pop and something like an action figure, or a more affordable Bowen or kotobukiya figure lol

I haven’t really looked at that line too much since they haven’t done any characters I have been interested in to add to my collection.
