Vinyl style in addition to apparel, accessories and a range of digital products.

Under the agreement, Funko will reimagine the Summoners War universe and its iconic characters by integrating the design aesthetics of its best-selling Pop! lineup of collectible figures. This agreement also includes the design and manufacturing of apparel and accessories as well as digital products, such as emojis (still and animated), digital cards and Pop!

Funko is a leader in the collectible space, so we are confident that this agreement will greatly enhance our licensing portfolio.”

The agreement with Funko is Com2us’ second high-profile signing since the November 2017 announcement of its agreement with The Walking Dead creators, Skybound Entertainment. Com2us has continued to ramp up its collaboration efforts by engaging best-in-class companies to expand the Summoners War IP into new product and entertainment verticals.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
