Funko Announces “Disney Treasures” Subscription Service to Focus Entirely on Disney Collectibles
March 6, 2017

EVERETT, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)–Funko, one of the leading creators and innovators of licensed pop culture products, announced the newest licensed subscription box joining their subscription service offerings – Disney Treasures. The officially licensed Disney Treasures subscription box is the latest box among Funko’s additional subscription offerings from Marvel, Star Wars and DC Comics, and will focus on delivering exclusive Disney Collectibles directly to collectors every other month.

The first Disney Treasures box theme is “Pirates Cove,” a pirate-themed box now available at www.DisneyTreasures.Funko.com. The Pirates Cove box will include exclusive pirate-themed collectibles from Disney movies and Disney Parks such as a Smee Pop! Vinyl from the original Peter Pan animated Disney film and a “Wicked Wench” Captain with Pirate Ship Dorbz Ride from the Pirates of the Caribbean Disney ride.

“We believe this is the most unique subscription box available today,” said Funko CEO, Brian Mariotti. “We’re tremendously excited about the inclusion of collectibles from Disney Parks. That includes characters and vehicles from any ride in Disneyland or Disneyworld, and many of the characters in those rides that were never sold outside the parks can now reside in the Disney Treasures box from Funko.”

The Disney Treasures subscription program is offered on a bimonthly subscription model delivering six full boxes per year. A full year commitment (six boxes) is priced at $24.00 USD per box, a half year commitment (three boxes) is $25.00 USD per box and a monthly “pay as you go” option is $26.00 USD per box. Each box delivers exclusive Disney collectibles that can only be acquired through the Disney Treasures program especially curated for Disney fans by Funko.

Funko also revealed a new “founders program” as part of the Disney Treasures box. With the purchase of a full year’s subscription, starting with the Pirates Cove box, members will automatically be enrolled in the “Pioneer” program. The Pioneer program includes an exclusive Disney pin with the first box as well as an exclusive anniversary gift at the completion of the year. Pioneer members will also receive a digital founder’s badge that will appear in their account profile and other exclusive offers from the Disney Treasures website.

Daniel Pickett
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.
