Funko has announced more of the new collectibles that will be released at San Diego Comic-Con, including Disney and miscellaneous toys. The annual convention, one of the biggest events in nerd culture, takes place in less than a month, with fans coming from all over the world to enjoy panels, screenings, sneak peeks and autograph signings for their favorite movies and TV shows as well as comics and games.
Many of the biggest events center on huge movie franchises, including the Marvel and DC cinematic universes, but that's not the only attraction - especially for those who love collectibles. The event includes a massive exhibitor hall where fans can buy anything their nerdy hearts' desire, from artwork to cosplay to accessories to toys - and of course, comic books! One of the most popular booths is always that of toy maker Funko, who releases a series of limited edition figures for the event each year.
Funko has been announcing their SDCC exclusives in waves again this year, grouped into general categories. Now, the company has put another two waves of collectibles up on the Funko blog, including the Disney line and a miscellaneous line that includes a range of figures. Take a look in the gallery below:

The Disney collection includes Pop Vinyls for Moana's Hei Hei, Mr Toad, Tigger, Chip & Dale, two glow-in-the-dark figures (Darkwing Duck and Jolly Roger) and a Dorbz figure of Aladdin and Abu on the Magic Carpet. The miscellaneous wave includes two Pop Vinyl figures from Sister Location (Jumpscare Baby and Jumpscare Funtime Foxy), an extra-large Dwarven Colossus Pop Vinyl (from Elder Scrolls Online), and Pop Vinyl figures of the Lorax, Power Rangers' Megazord, and Scareglow. The final two figures revealed are a Dorbz figure of Skeletor riding Panthor, and a Rock Candy She-Ra.
These figures join the already-announced waves, including a set of Marvel exclusives, Warner Bros exclusives, and DC exclusives.
These latest additions will no doubt be just as popular as the exclusives have been in previous years, with collectors snapping up these cute little collectibles that add to Funko's ever-growing line of toys. Hei Hei is sure to be particularly popular, given the huge success of Moana at the end of last year, and Aladdin and Megazord will also likely sell out quickly with the recent Power Rangers movie and the upcoming live-action Aladdin film on the way. With nine waves of figures now announced, it's not likely that there will be much more on the way, but the blog is promising more news to come, so stay tuned.
San Diego Comic-Con takes place from July 20–23 this year in San Diego, CA.
