Hold on to your bowls people! Funko is making themed cereal. Could it get any cooler? How about finding mini Popo! as the prizes in the themed boxes of cereal? Because that’s exactly what you will get.
Michael Becker founder of Funko, made the big announcement while speaking with Coronado Eagle & Journal and revealed that this Summer Funko will launch the brand new line of Funko Cereal that includes licenses that are part of the company’s POP! line.
The new line will first feature Freddy Krueger, Elvira, and Beetlejuice!
One of the fun things is we are about to release our own line of cereal, with a mini-Pop inside,” Becker stated. “We got all the cool licenses like He-Man, Wonder Woman, Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Freddy Krueger and our own Freddy Funko. We start shipping to stores in June and we have the distribution set up and the product is pre-sold. It’s just one more of those feel-good Funko items.” He continued, “I used to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings while I was eating cereal. There are prizes in the cereal and it will sell for $7.99 a box. When you add milk to the Freddy Krueger cereal, it looks blood red. With the Beetlejuice cereal, when you add milk it looks like slime.”
The site adds that the line will be sold through collectible stores, and not grocery stores.
Come June of 2018 you can pick up your box of Funko cereal!
