Funko's HeroWorld Vinyl Figures are the Latest Pop Culture Collectible You May Become Addicted To...

Written by

Funko just continues to surprise, constantly rolling out new scales and series that you didn't expect to want or need. This week comes news that they've got an all-new line called HeroWorld, and that it's launching exclusively at Target and Target.com this month. These 4" vinyl figurines are available in five-packs and two-packs, and the initial wave features five distinct series' - DC Comics, Five Nights at Freddy's, Teen Titans GO!, Power Rangers and Scooby-Doo! Check out a preview below...

Series 1: DC Comics - Featuring Flash, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Hawkgirl and Hawkman

From the looks of things, the 5-packs should run around $15, with 2-Packs around $8. Keep in mind, as these are Target exclusives, anyone selling them on sites like Amazon or eBay will be third-party sellers that will be asking a price much higher than retail. Knowing that our kids tend to love the figurine multipacks from the likes of Disney Store and Just Play, I expect that these will do pretty well. It's surprised me, but smaller kids don't seem to mind when their figures lack articulation, and from a collector standpoint, these look great!
