Funko Releases PEZ Candy Dispenser Line
Funko announced their adorably fun and scrumptious new line of dispensers in collaboration with the nostalgic PEZ Candy last week with the initial appearance of Marvel characters. Now, they’ve got a whole heap of others ready to join the party. With nods to fan-favorite comic book, video game characters, and movies – everyone has an icon to collect. Whether you’re looking to bring Jack Skellington, Crash Bandicoot, Batman, or Sonic the Hedgehog onto your collectible shelf, Funko and PEZ Candy have you covered.
Though the first line of Marvel PEZ dispensers were announced and released last week, the collectible joys of candy entertainment were sold out in no time at Hot Topic and Box Lunch retailers. There’s even a Stan Lee edition to be had! In addition to the already long list of available caricatures, even pop culture icons like Bob Ross are included in the line of new Funko collectibles.

The partnership between PEZ Candy and Funko have been a project in the making since December last year, officially announcing the collaboration for this line of dispensers. It brings two of the most highly collectible series together in one and succeeds in bringing together the nostalgia of popping candies out of characters and the new age of Funko. What more could enthusiasts of all things adorable and sugary ask for?
Several others are available to purchase online via PEZ Candy’s website with such characters from DC, Universal, Disney, Nintendo, Star Wars, Nickelodeon and so much more. For the ones listed above, patience will pay off as many of them won’t be available for retail sale until October to November. To get started with pre-orders, check out Entertainment Earth!
