Last year, one big story out of New York Toy Fair was that for the very first time, Playmobil would be issuing toys based on famous pop culture licenses. Promised to debut in 2017, this was exciting news on its own, but another component of the launch was revealed to be a collaboration with Funko on some larger figures presented in 6″ scale. Today, Funko x Playmobil is a reality, and the first wave of 6″ collectible figures is available for pre-order through my ally, Entertainment Earth! The first twelve figures are spread over five pop culture licenses including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Doctor Who and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory… and one of them is an Entertainment Earth Exclusive TMNT Black and White Raphael!
Since 1974, Playmobil figures and playsets have been world-renowned for their German quality and detail, becoming popular here at Rock Father HQ thanks to our daughters over the past few years (Santa brought the Playmobil Hospital last month). For the Funko collaboration, these 6″ figures double the size, with articulation at the shoulders and wrists, along with included accessories for most figures.
