New ‘Stranger Things’ Funko Pop! Series, Mystery Minis and Plushies Announced

The second season of the Netflix mega-hit Stranger Things is still pretty far off but, while you wait to return to the Upside Down, you can check out even more awesome series merchandise from everyone’s favorite company, Funko.

Last month, Funko announced the release of some super cool, retro action figures which are expected to hit the stores in August.  The action figures featured some of the characters including Lucas (played by Caleb McLaughlin), Mike (played by Finn Wolfhard), Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown), Will (Noah Schnapp), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and the Demogorgon.  We couldn’t help but notice some fan favorites were missing, however, in the newest announcement of upcoming releases of Pop! vinyls, Mystery Minis and new Plushies, it looks like all of our favorites are finally here!

The first series of Stranger Things Mystery Minis features several different versions of Eleven, as well as the characters of Mike, Dustin, and Lucas. Additionally, we finally get figures for Joyce, Sheriff Hopper, Nancy, Barb, Nancy, Jonathan, and even the Demogorgan.  The new Mystery Minis will be hitting Target, Hot Topic and Gamestop starting in September.

We are super excited about the new Plushies, particularly, the Barb Plushy!  In addition to Barb, the cuddly toys will feature a couple of versions of Eleven, Mike, Will, Lucas, Dustin, and the Demogorgan.  The Plushies will be hitting stores starting this fall.

Lastly, we are getting some new Pop! Vinyls!  The new vinyls include a brand new version of Eleven in her hospital gown, Jonathan with his camera, Nancy, Dr. Martin Brenner and three versions of Sheriff Jim Hopper, one with a coffee and donut, Hopper in a hazmat suit and a variant version of the coffee and donut figure but without his Hopper hat.  The variant version is a 1-in-6 rarity so, be on the lookout for that collectible. Additionally, in the new series, we are also getting Joyce in her hazmat suit.  The new Pop! Vinyls will be available at Target and Hot Topic starting in August.

These figures are super cool and definitely a “must have” for any Stranger Things super fan.  Check out the gallery of upcoming toy releases below:
