Toy Crazy: Summer 2017 WWE Funko Releases

wwepopWe covered some upcoming Funko releases back in April. Those figures are already in my collection and look fantastic.

We have reviewed a lot of Mattel’s WWE Elite figures, but Funko has also released some pretty solid figures in the past. I’m a big collector and you can see some of my collection on my Instagram, @vintagetoybob.

I’ve plugged another site in my previous Mattel posts, but if you’re looking to order Funko figures, I’d trust intheringcollectibles.com. I’ve bought a ton of stuff from them and they always pack shipments very well. You can use code ‘paulyp‘ for a discount.

Here are some pictures of Funko’s Summer 2017 WWE POP! vinyl releases.

WWE Funko 2017 Million Dollar Man Ted DibiaseWWE Funko 2017 Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase CHASE‘Million Dollar Man’ Ted Dibiase (with CHASE) – I love that Funko is releasing two different version of the Million Dollar Man. These are two iconic attires from his run in the WWF in the 80’s and 90’s.

WWE Funko 2017 Iron SheikWWE Funko 2017 Iron Sheik CHASEIron Sheik (with CHASE) – I was quite surprised when I saw Funko was releasing an Iron Sheik. The WWE usually shies away from controversial former wrestlers. He is a great Twitter follow, but curse words flow like water out of his mouth. Funko is great at picking and choosing which guys they release.

WWE Funko 2017 Sasha Banks THE BOSSSasha Banks – I’m glad Funko is finally getting around to releasing more female wrestlers. The Bellas and Eva Marie are really the only ones so far. Another female wrestler is coming out this Summer as well.

WWE Funko 2017 Chris JerichoChris Jericho – I love that Funko is releasing a ‘The List’ version of Chris Jericho before Mattel. This one should sell very well for Funko.

WWE Funko 2017 Bayley Toys R Us Exclusive TRUBayley (Toys R Us Exclusive) – Just like the first New Day, this will be a TRU exclusive. Bayley is possibly the most popular female wrestler in the world right now, so this one will be flying off the shelves.

WWE Funko Enzo Amore Big Cass 2017 Walgreen ExclusiveEnzo Amore & Big Cass (Walgreens Exclusive) – I love this one, There haven’t been many tag teams that get the two or three pack version. This tag team is very popular and Enzo Amore’s Mattel figures do very well at retail. the HBK and Kane Walgreens exclusives weren’t very hard to find at retail, so I’m all for that chain of store getting some more exclusives.

That is all that has been confirmed for this Summer. There are rumors of Zack Ryder and a Ultimate Warrior & Macho Man two-pack from their match at Wrestlemania 7.

Like I said before, if you’re interested in pre-ordering these WWE Funko figures, check out In The Ring Collectibles and use code ‘paulyp for a discount.
