Unsurprisingly, Funko is creating a line of Pop! vinyl figures based on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The company sold figures for Batman and Superman exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con, but more characters are expected to join the lineup. Now, we know one of them, and it may be one that you did not expect.
Funko is producing an Aquaman figure, based on his appearance in Batman v Superman. This figure, called an “Aqua” variant, is a Hot Topic exclusive. Will we see a standard version of Aquaman in other stores later on?
Hot Topic has this description of the figure: “Aquaman (Aqua) is given a fun, and funky, stylized look as an adorable collectible vinyl figure! Hot Topic Exclusive!” The item is currently out of stock, and it is currently unknown when it will hit stores. However, don’t be surprised if it’s early next year, closer to the film’s release.
You can check out a closer look at the collectible below.
I myself am a big Funko Pop! collector right now. So, obviously, I will be buying the figures produced for the Batman v Superman line. Fingers crossed that we’ll see the rest of them sooner than later.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to hit theaters March 25th, 2016. The second installment in the DC Extended Universe stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot. Zack Snyder directs from a script by Chris Terrio and David S Goyer.
