Even if you’re not familiar with the name Funko, you’ve most likely seen one of their figurines at some point in your life.
From pop culture to sports, Funko holds hundreds of licenses and have created tens of thousands of different characters over the years. Last year, they introduced their first official line of NHL figurines and it was an absolute hit.
The inaugural NHL set consisted of eight players and it included Jamie Benn, Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane, Henrik Lundqvist, Connor McDavid, Carey Price, Morgan Rielly, Steven Stamkos, Jonathan Toews and Alex Ovechkin.
On Friday, Funko unveiled the players who will be featured in the second set and the list for the second series is much larger than the first series. Due out in November, the second set will feature 25 players from around the league, including a representative from every Canadian franchise except the Edmonton Oilers.
The full list includes Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, Patrik Laine, Shea Weber, Erik Karlsson, Bo Horvat, Johnny Gaudreau, Evgeni Malkin, Jeff Carter, Vladimir Tarasenko, Braden Holtby, Corey Crawford, Wayne Simmonds, Devan Dubnyk and Brad Marchand.
According to the company’s website, the players from the Canadian teams will be exclusive to Grosnor Distribution in Canada, while the rest of the figurines will be available throughout North America.
They also have a new set being released later this Fall and that’s the Pint Size Heroes collection.
The inaugural Pint Size Heroes set features 10 players which includes P.K. Subban, Auston Matthews, Johnny Gaudreau, Patrik Laine, Brent Burns, Carey Price, Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos, Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Connor McDavid and Dylan Larkin.
