Excitement surrounding the upcoming Suicide Squad movie had been slowly building up until three weeks ago, when the first official trailer was released, and people went crazy. Now everyone is talking about it and every single piece of new information we get is big news.
Those of us, who aren’t just eager to see the film but also cannot wait to get our hands on all the film’s merchandise, were pretty excited last year when Warner Bros. Consumer Products released a statement announcing that Suicide Squad merchandise will be aimed to collectors and adult fans.
Back in December the first announcement came of a line of realistic character statues and last month we saw the first images of these figures featuring Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), and the Joker (Jared Leto). They’re pretty pricey ($150 USD each), but they do look very like the actors portraying these bad guys so, if you’re a big fan then you’ll love having one (or more) of these at home.
We also get to have a cute – and less expensive – version of the Task Force X thanks to Funko. During the New York International Toy Fair, Funko revealed a large number of products to be released and Suicide Squad took center stage.
Funko Pop! Vinyl figures feature Diablo, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, a masked Deadshot, an unmasked Deadshot, Rick Flagg, Katana, Harley Quinn, and the Joker. They’ll go on sale in May 2016.
Funko Dorbz line includes masked Deadshot, Enchantress, the Joker, and Harley Quinn.
Funko Plush features Harley Quinn, the Joker, unmasked Deadshot, and Katana.
Suicide Squad is also on the line-up of Funko’s Mystery Minis and Vinyl Idolz. No word on which characters they will feature. There’s also no word on when these figures will be available so for now all we can do is sit and wait.
Suicide Squad hit theatres August 5, 2016.
