I'm not big on the funky pop stuff but that Casey is decent.

Oh man, he's gotta be the best TMNT pop yet! Kinda makes me want to pick up the few that I'm missing.

I wonder if you have to have a direct Funko account or my LCS can get this through Diamond.

Any small retailer can order these...just not large places like WalMart or Target.


I put in an order for a single case of these.

Thats not how this specialty series has worked...

This has been running for 3 months at 1 per month.
The 3 so far have been:
Cosmo space dog from marvel
Blue weirdo fat elephant thing from Star Wars
This Casey Jones

Just cause they did a single TMNT does not mean they will do others.

Just cause they did a single TMNT does not mean they will do others.

They've done all four turtles, variants of the turtles, keychains of the turtles, Splinter, April, Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, a Foot Soldier, the Party Wagon, and now Casey Jones, all in the POP line. Funko also made Fabrications, Wacky Wobblers, Mystery Minis, and Dorbz all under the TMNT license.

It's pretty safe to say they'll be making at least a few more TMNT things.

They DID NOT do a specialty series....

I am well aware of the normal Funko products that I sell regularly

specialty series =/= regular releases

You have to read the whole statement- not pick a single line out of context.

Will the more limited nature of this item be reflected in its price point, or should it cost the same as any other?

id like to know this too. Out of all the TMNT characters to make a limited pop out of they choose Casey why did it have to be him.

Im hoping they do more of the actual Turtles themselves. The Nick series, the movie line etc.

Past "Specialty Series" have a recommended price of $10.99. These are available through Diamond and any LCS can order them.

All orders have to be placed 2 months in advance, and it looks like it's shipping in December. Anyone with a Diamond account probably won't be able to see it as an orderable item until October.

I think hes referring to the Max Rebo funko.

Yeah, he's talking about my main man Max Rebo. He's the only funko I ever wanted since Maxie-boy merch is pretty uncommon. He works well with the style imo because the puppet's eyes are literally black orbs

Man I would love some Nick Turtles POPs, it kind of bugs me that they only do OT styled stuff.
