I have never played Magic: The Gathering but for it to have lasted so many years, there must be something pretty special about it. Special enough for Funko to acquire the rights to create some awesome vinyls in their POP! line and not to mention the upcoming Legacy Collection figures that will be released. Check out the official press release for the POP! figures hitting stores this May!
Pop! Magic: Magic: The Gathering
Funko is excited to announce a new licensing agreement with Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) to produce Magic: The Gathering Planeswalker figures for their popular Pop! Vinyl Figures and new Legacy Collection Action Figures lines.
This is the first time fans will be able to have all of their favorite Magic: The Gathering characters in stylized vinyl and action figure form.
“We are deeply honored and very excited that Wizards of the Coast chose Funko as a partner to develop truly cool collectibles for Magic: The Gathering. I know the fans of Magic have been waiting nearly 20 years to get their hands on some fantastic Action Figures and stylized Vinyl figures. I promise that we won’t disappoint them!” said Brian Mariotti, CEO of Funko.
“We are excited to bring the world’s best strategy game to life with these figures,” said Elaine Chase, Brand Director for Magic: The Gathering at Wizards of the Coast. “Funko has been a great partner, and we’re looking forward to giving players yet another way to enjoy Magic: The Gathering.”
