Not only does this year mark the 30th anniversary of everyone's favorite symbiote-wearing Spider-Man villain Venom, it's also the year when the character is set to star in his own solo film starring Tom Hardy.
In order the celebrate this landmark year in the character's long history, Funko has decided to dedicate an entire line of its famous Pop! figures to the alien parasite.
Earlier today, the toy collectible manufacturing company has unveiled the figures from this new line, and they are nothing short of
frightening amazing. The wave is headlined by a new dynamic mold of Eddie Brock as the symbiote suit wraps around his head. Cletus Kasady's Carnage gets the same treatment, as well as a fully formed (and weaponized) Pop! figure which will be exclusive to chain store FYE.
The line then gets even more spectacular with the addition of a selection of your favorite Venomized Marvel heroes. A pale blue Captain America bears the Venom logo on his chest instead of a star, the rampaging Hulk is roaring as the symbiote takes the Jade Giant over and a spiked and black Iron Man takes to the skies with ruby red repulsor energy.
Then, it's on to the exclusives: video game chain store GameStop will sell a terrifying Venomized Black Panther. Then, collectors will have to hit Walmart to get their hands on the fiery Venomized Ghost Rider figure. And, finally, the line is rounded out with a Target exclusive Pop! figure of a Venomized Loki, which looks particularly devious.
The price range of Funko Pop! figures usually ranges between $10 and $15, depending on rarity. This full line of Venom figures, excluding the exclusives, is currently up for pre-order. All of the collectibles are set to hit store shelves this September.
Arriving in theaters Oct. 5, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze and Reed Scott.
