With the new Spiderman film coming out the characters were obviously going to get the Funko Pop treatment! There are 5 Pops to collect thus far in the series and it wouldn’t surprise me if more Funkos will come out closer to the films release.

With a live adaption of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is making its way to the cinemas this summer, Funko has set the merchandising ball rolling with two pops from the series and quite possibly more to come.
