Funko, the makers of the Funko Pop line of figures, is entering the branded cereal business with six new cereals. Each one will have a Funko Pop figure of an iconic character included inside, such as Mega Man and Cuphead. [Thanks, Bleeding Cool!]
Here’s Funko’s introduction to their breakfast cereals below:
Funko, purveyors of pop culture and all things awesome, is committed to helping you start the day off right by putting the fun back in breakfast with FunkO’s. And as we all know from Saturday morning commercials; every breakfast starts with a bowl of brightly colored cereal that comes out of a box with a really cool mascot on the front and a prize inside!
Funko is kicking off this summer with six new cereals, each guaranteed to turn your milk a different amazing color. Funko has no shortage of beloved mascots that already feature largely in the Funkoverse as Pop! vinyl figures and other collectibles. Now these pop culture icons will join you for breakfast!
In July, Mega Man will be available at GameStop, Cuphead & Mugman will be available at Hot Topic, Freddy FunkO’s will be available through Funko, Nightmare On Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger and Friday the 13th’s Jason will be available at FYE, and The Lord of the Rings featuring Gollum will be available at BoxLunch. Additional cereals will continue to be added throughout the year for your snacking pleasure.
And of course, to put the fun back in breakfast, each box contains a collectible prize, making the boxes as much fun to collect as they are to eat! You’ll find a collectible figure inside every box, so you’re going to want two boxes – one to taste, and one to display on your shelf with your Pop! collection.
Pick up your first box this summer, pour yourself a bowl and watch cartoons!
The Funko FunkO’s will be available in July 2018.
