Marvel Studios, Feige No Longer Under Perlmutter's Purview
Comic Books, Film
In the wake of Funko’s adorable “Dancing Groot” POP! vinyl bobblehead toy, inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy, another somewhat obscure Marvel character is about to get a POP! treatment of his own. As revealed this afternoon on Twitter by Marvel’s Ryan Penagos, Howard the Duck will make his POP! vinyl debut later this year. While the release date isn’t available, it’s likely Funko will reveals details later this week, along with more information on Dancing Groot.
Bringing on Howard the Duck for a POP! Vinyl certainly makes sense: The character made a cameo in the post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy, voiced by Seth Green. And considering that Guardians is on track to become the highest-grossing film of 2014 in the United States, it’s likely there will soon be a lot more people hoping to get their hands on a Howard bobblehead.
Dancing Groot and Howard the Duck will continue Funko’s popular line of Marvel POP! figures. Howard the Duck is the 64th figure, while Dancing Groot will be the 65th. It’s likely both are part of a greater Guardians of the Galaxy-themed wave of POP! bobbleheads.
