Funko is an American toy company that produces pop culture-related toys, specifically bobbleheads and vinyl figures. Funko has distributed Sonic the Hedgehog-related figures beginning in 2010 with a Wacky Wobblers line, then in 2013 with its first "POP!"-styled figures of the Sonic characters, and finally a second set of Sonic "POP!" figures arriving in December 2017.
List of figures
2010 Wacky Wobblers
The first Sonic the Hedgehog Funko set was released under the "Wacky Wobblers" lineup, which were essentially glorified, high quality bobbleheads. Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna were the only Sonic representatives to be distributed under this line.
The first Funko "POP!" set featuring Sonic the Hedgehog characters was released in 2013. Like the Wacky Wobblers set in 2010, the only Sonic characters to receive "POP!" figures were Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. These figures are extremely difficult and expensive to come across today.
Announced on 19 October 2017, Funko will be releasing a second Funko "POP!"-styled set of characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog brand. While Sonic returns with a new mold (both with a keychain and standard "POP!" figurine), Shadow the Hedgehog and Dr. Eggman receive a "POP!" figurine of their own, as well as several variants (including a Sonic with a Chaos Emerald, a Shadow holding a Dark Chao, and a Super Sonic variant). These variants are located at specific retailers.
