Looney Tunes Playboy Penguin Funko Pop collectible


That was a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, right? I had to look it up because I wondered if it was the character I was thinking of (from the Bugs Bunny cartoon, the title of which I can't recall off the top of my head). Usually I've been immune to the attractions of Funko Pop vinyls (my tastes just run to toys having a more accurate representation, rather than an interpretive one), but in this instance the character as realized in vinyl actually looks fairly close to its on-screen counterpart (except for having no irises, for some reason). Probably a total fluke that the original animation character design just happens to be closer to the usual Funko Pop style than would normally be the case. Such an obscure WB character, too.



Hey, here's a question that just occurred to me... did Funko ever do a Marvin the Martian Pop vinyl figure?  It just hit me that the relative head-to-body proportions of Marvin's original character design are pretty much Funko Pop standard, or close enough, anyway.

Hmm. Not quite what I expected. They changed the basic body colors, squared off his head a little, and gave his eyes kind of a more sinister look. I never did see Space Jam; no real interest in any sports-related stuff, plus I tend not to like those live-action/animated mashups.

Duck Dodgers the series was good, for a newer cartoon. Wish they'd made more episodes of that, and The Looney Tunes Show.

Wow, that's a find!  Usually all you find in those stores is junk. What I mean is, people are sharper these days in terms of recognizing that old stuff (particularly character merchandise) has collectible value due to an awareness of eBay, etc.

Especially something like puzzles, because finding those completely intact with the original box and all the pieces still there is hard.

I bought a new portable dvd player.

I bought Comic Book Tattoo. It's a huge book.

Very true! I love the hunt, but its becoming harder and harder to find items for my collection in antique stores. I do however seem to come across A LOT of Archie-themed Welch's jelly glasses and McDonald's Happy Meal toys.

Those Welch's glasses are fairly common. It seems like they made several series of those over a few years, during the height of the Filmation cartoons' popularity. They were fairly durable, and people did actually tend to save them and keep them in decent condition.

I was not aware of any Archie McDonald's Happy Meal toys, however. As far I know, the McD Happy Meal toys didn't really become a going 'thing' until the early-to-mid '80s, which would have been beyond the peak awareness period (late 60s to late 70s) for the Archie characters. You may or may not know anything about this, but as far as I can tell there's never been any sort of guide book for Archie collectibles. If you have any photos of those Happy Meal toys, I'd love to see them.

Yes, I have a complete set of Archie-themed jelly glasses from Welch's (12), c. 1971-1973. I haven't focused on finding ones with all the different bottoms, but I recently picked up an extra set (6) in its original packaging. If you haven't seen it, a complete list of jelly glasses can be found online at http://www.jellyjammers.org/welchsjellylist.pdf.

I have a complete set of kid's meal toys from McDonald's (6), c. 1987-1988 and Burger King (4), c. 1991. I recently picked up a few from Ruby's Diner (3), c. 1997, but I'm not sure if it's a complete set or not.

I've seen a few Archie collectibles listed in collector's guides focused on Saturday Morning Cartoons, but generally they only include one or two pages on Archie. I might have to make one!
