Funko have announced a historic partnership with Playmobil, which will pair the classic articulated, 6-inch ABS figures with exciting pop culture and entertainment licenses for a collector-focused line, and Doctor Who will feature as one of its brands.
As Playmobil’s first official licensee, Funko will have the opportunity to bring new and beloved characters to Playmobil’s nostalgic frame.
Funko CEO, Brian Mariotti said:
“We’re honoured and thrilled to create the first ever cross-license with Playmobil and bring their unique style to the hip and trendy pop culture licenses Funko is known for. It’s an amazing opportunity, and we know fans of both styles are going to love these figures.”
Funko’s first wave of Playmobil 6 inch, 200% figures will include characters from Doctor Who, Sherlock, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Ghostbusters and Back to the Future, with many more forthcoming. Figures will retail for $14.99 and be available in stores from Summer 2016.
