BILLUND, DENMARK (April 1, 2018) – The LEGO Group is happy to announce that we will be partnering with Funko, Inc. to produce vinyl figures and bobbleheads of LEGO minifigures in a brand new line that fans will enjoy.

We have some exciting products in the pipeline from popular themes including LEGO Ninjago, The LEGO Batman Movie, as well as for The LEGO Movie Sequel that is set to premiere in theaters next year.

The LEGO BrickHeadz theme will also release sets based on original Funko characters like Freddy Funko and Pulpo but in the the BrickHeadz style.

“We are very excited to announce this historic partnership as it brings two of the world’s most notable brands together to create some very unique products.”

This is a very exciting announcement as we are eager to share the first product images during San Diego Comic Con 2018. Feel free to swing by the LEGO booth as well as the Funko booth to get an exclusive sneak peek at these new innovative products. The first LEGO/Funko products will be available starting in September.

Additional Info

Yep, it’s that time of year again. This was just a little humor as there are fans of both communities that say they look alike. If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I’ve caught the Funko fever the past few weeks and have started collecting more of them. Don’t get me wrong, I still like the LEGO BrickHeadz line but I also enjoy Funko as another hobby as well. They both have things that I like about them but they are far from being the same. Enjoy your day and don’t take everything too seriously today.
