Till this point, I have avoided the whole Funko Pop Collectable thing. Already have so much stuff hanging around the man cave – really didn’t need the extra product but what does Funko go and do? They come up with something that there is no way in hell I’m not going to buy.
Horror-themed cereals are coming our way – Funko Founder Mike Becker spilled the beans – check it out!
“One of the fun things is we are about to release our own line of cereal, with a mini-Pop inside. We got all the cool licenses like He-Man, Wonder Woman, Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Freddy Krueger and our own Freddy Funko. We start shipping to stores in June and we have the distribution set up and the product is pre-sold. It’s just one more of those feel-good Funko items. I used to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings while I was eating cereal. There are prizes in the cereal and it will sell for $7.99 a box. When you add milk to the Freddy Krueger cereal, it looks blood red. With the Beetle Juice cereal, when you add milk it looks like slime. The idea is to sell the cereal to retailers who carry collectibles. We can’t compete with Kellogg’s at Ralphs. We think people will buy one box to stock and one to rock. They’ll probably open one box and enjoy it and never touch the other one, because it’s a collectible.”
Love the fact that the milk will turn red with the Freddy cereal and slimy with the Beetlejuice version. As the quote states – you’ll be able to find these things in stores in June so – get that money ready.
