Funko has heard your cries and is responding in kind. Get ready for a mega-wave of Crash Bandicoot Pops to hit stores this year. It has been a big year for for Crash; his games were remastered in HD and released for PS4, there are rumblings of a new game, and now he is immortalized in Funko form.
The hit platform video game Crash Bandicoot™
is now receiving the Pop! vinyl treatment!
This series features the high-speed, energetic Crash Bandicoot,
the short-tempered, reckless boss Neo Cortex and more!
There will be six different versions of Crash, including a Chase Black and White version of the regular one. All of the others are store exclusives. There will be a Biker Outfit version at Hot Topic, a jetpack version at Toys R Us, a flocked version at GameStop, and a glow-in-the-dark version at Best Buy. Man, Best Buy is getting more and more into the collectibles game this year. There will also be a regular release of Dr. Neo Cortex.
All of these look super good; Crash really lends himself to the Pop look. I am a sucker for black and white anything, so I guess I will have another chase to track down. I probably won’t get them all, though — I don’t have the time to track all these things down while dodging the inevitable scalpers that these exclusives have been bringing around as of late. I wonder how many Dr. Neo Cortex will actually sell when there are this many Crash around for people to collect. I’m picturing many of them on store shelves for years to come.
All of the Crash Bandicoot Funko Pop figures will be breaking crates, collecting peaches, and hitting store shelves soon. In November, to be exact. Good luck, everyone!
