Funko released advance images of several new lines of toys for this week’s London Toy Fair 2017.  The highlight of the images include two lines of figures from Twin Peaks, plus figures from Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Ghost in the Shell, and Donnie Darko, among others.  The nice sculpt of Kyle MacLachlan’s Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks will be a must for fans of the classic series who are looking forward to this year’s sequel series on Showtime.  The preview photo does not include what accessory will accompany Cooper.  A doughnut?  A cup of coffee?  A piece of pie?  His voice recorder?  We’re betting on the coffee.

Another big win is a Funko Dorbz figure of everyone’s third favorite fictional rabbit, Frank from Donnie Darko.  The Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Funko Pop! line includes new characters like

And here is a look at the Funko Pop! version of blue-haired Scarlett Johansson’s lead borg character Major from Ghost in the Shell:

The Funko ReAction Twin Peaks action figures are hopefully only a taste of what is to come.  The first round includes Cooper, the Log Lady, Bob the killer, and dead Laura Palmer (eww):

The Twin Peaks Funko Pops! include Audrey Horne (with beauty mark and cigarette), Leland Palmer, Agent Cooper (with “damned good” cup of coffee), the Log Lady, and killer Bob:

The Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Funko Pop! line includes the original team plus the above Mantis, and Taserface:

And anyone who missed out on the previously released Funko Pop! bobblehead for Kim Cattrall’s Gracie Law from Big Trouble in Little China could just pick up the similarly-designed Geisha from Ghost in the Shell:

As with all Funko Pop! bobblehead figures, it’s not always so obvious what face is behind the doll, which is part of the appeal of the product line.

We’ll post links for pre-orders from Entertainment Earth once available.  The figures are expected to ship later in 2017, although the smart business move would be having these out in advance of the release of the new series.
