NYCC 2017 - The Return of Star Wars Mighty Muggs

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 6, 2017

3433 They're back!  Before Funko launched Pop! Vinyl, Hasbro captured lightning in a bottle with Mighty Muggs about a decade ago.   We got Star Wars, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Marvel, and Indiana Jones as just a few of the $10 chunky figures.  Collectors and kids loved them, but Hasbro didn't want to farm the line out to more licenses, or keep it going, and just let it lapse.  This is when Funko released Funko Force 2.0, which were renamed Pop! Vinyl figures and changed the toy world - the greatest toy trend was in Hasbro's hands, and by letting it languish, someone else one-upped them.  But they're back!   And they brought a cool action feature this time!

3428 The big figures are in this season, so we're happy to see new guys and more importantly, new old guys.    There are new movie characters, there are original trilogy characters, and one of my absolute favorites is getting a big upsizing!    In today's reveals, you'll find 5 new 6-inch action figures which could be in your hands over the next year.

3423 New stuff!  While some of it may not look new - a revised Asty is appreciated, but we've got Asty - there are some other new things here to enjoy.   Asty appears to have a removable helmet and a blaster, but you've got Asty.   Probably.

3424 Also returning is Maz Kanata with a snazzy jetpack.  Previously exclusive to a 4-pack, this slightly modified figure gives you another crack at the character with some new gear.
