The Dark Knight is celebrating his 80th anniversary and all of Gotham City is celebrating its favorite Super Hero. DC first introduced Batman in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Since then, Batman has appeared in countless comics, television episodes and movies, battled epic Super Villains and become a cornerstone of pop culture. Celebrate 80 years of the Dark Knight with a 19” Pop! Batman.

Funko has announced two Disney villain cereals that will fill your little spooks breakfast bowls in time for Halloween.
The cereals feature two of the most iconic Disney bad guys from our childhoods: The Little Mermaid‘s Ursula and The Nightmare Before Christmas‘ Oogie Boogie.
These villainous characters will join four others (to be revealed at later dates) in a line of Funko cereals (or FunkO’s). Each box comes complete with several servings of delicious, sugary cereal, and also includes a Pocket POP! of selected character.
The Disney villain FunkO’s cereal will be available at Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween in late August and early September, and are currently set for preorders on the store websites HERE and HERE, with an expected ship date of September 11.
The CEO and Director of Funko has been a toy collector since high school, when he started accumulating PEZ dispensers. Though unknown to Mariotti at the time, with each piece he added to his collection, he was moving one step closer to his destiny of leading Everett-based toy collectibles company Funko, which he purchased from founder Mike Becker in 2005.
Stepping into Mariotti’s fifth-story corner office is something akin to a religious experience for individuals who are toy collectors, pop culture nerds, or, really, anyone under age 12. “Thousands. I have thousands,” Mariotti said, glancing around at the colossal array of pop culture collectibles enshrined in lighted glass cases that line his office. In fact, there isn’t much else in the room, save for a framed photograph of his 19-year-old daughter.
425 Business asked Mariotti to share his favorite pieces and you can read about them HERE.
Funkoverse is a collectible strategy board game based on different pop culture universes that plays similar to Settlers of Catan. The first batch will include games based on Harry Potter, Rick & Morty, DC comics and The Golden Girls in either four or two-character sets. Each variation comes with its own 3-inch figurines that can be used across different games. This means four people could play a game as Batman, Voldermort, Harley Quinn and Blanche in the Rick & Morty universe.
Each game has its own scenario and ways to win. Every character has their own unique abilities that can help them in different ways. It will take some strategy to figure out which characters work best and how to make the most of their abilities in order to get the most points to win.
Funkoverse will make its way to retailers in October.
