As we’ve noted here plenty of times before, Funko has gotten really good at designing their figurines. Their current work is way more detailed and elegant, and if those are two words you want to hear alongside ‘Disney princesses’, then you’re in luck. Funko has big plans for a handful of those princesses — including everyone’s favorite alternative princess!
But first, the classics. Merida, Mulan, Aurora, and Jasmine are all getting some awesome new looks. The faces seem a little livelier than the their previous Pops (as lively as a Pop face can look, anyway), but it’s the dresses that really stand out. Funko has managed to make them more dynamic this time around, with colors that, appropriately enough, pop. You can get an idea of how far they’ve come just by checking out the side-by-side of the old and new Jasmine figurines below.
Funko seems to be giving some extra love to Aurora. Her figurine comes with a pink dress, but there will be a 1-in-6 chase variant wearing a blue dress, plus a Books a Million exclusive with a pink glitter dress. They’ll be joined by Pop keychains featuring the updated designs of Mulan, Jasmine, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. All of the above will be available in the fall, with some coming in as soon as September.
Last but not least, Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas is getting some much deserved recognition! She’s getting a 5″ Rock Candy figurine that looks incredible, and we’re liking that she’s holding a little jar of nightshade. And, owing to her status as alternative princess, she’s getting a Hot Topic exclusive, too — she’s cradling a black cat instead of holding nightshade in that one. They’ll both be available this fall, as well.
