The celebration of 10 years of the MCU has been going on all year, and there are no signs of slowing! The 2018 movie releases may have all happened, but the celebrations are still going on. With Infinity War quickly rising to the fourth highest-grossing film of all time, it is clear that fans love these characters (despite some of them turning to dust).
In concurrence with San Diego Comic-Con this week, Funko, who has done many great collaborations with Marvel in the past, has unveiled a series of limited edition re-releases of some of your favorite MCU character Pop! figures.
The original Pops! have released over the years separately, but what makes this series limited edition is their gold chrome coloring to celebrate the 10-year anniversary.
The official release had this to say about the figures:
“To celebrate 10 amazing years of Marvel Studios films, Funko has created a series of ten gold chrome Marvel Pop! figures to commemorate the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
While there are, of course, hundreds of characters in the MCU by now, the folks at Funko chose a select 10 of them for the 10-year anniversary. The characters are a mix of some heroes from all over the MCU.
As you can see, the characters consist of many Avengers from the first film like Iron Man, Cap, Thor, the Hulk, and Black Widow, as well as some newer faces like Black Panther and Ant-Man. Representing the Guardians of the Galaxy are Baby Groot, Gamora, and Star-Lord, who is a special 11th Pop! in the collection. And of course, what would the MCU be without its resident villain-turned-hero-turned villain-again-turned hero? Loki also got the gold treatment for the 10th anniversary!
No release date has been announced yet, but they will eventually be available online at some point this year, so you can celebrate all the way up until Captain Marvel comes out next March! A few figures from the collection are already available to pre-order, although arrival time is as yet unknown.
Also, Star-Lord’s gold chrome counterpart will only be available at Box Lunch, so if you want to collect all 11 Pop! figures, don’t forget to check there too!
This exclusive line of Funko Pops! is not the only thing announced during San Diego Comic-Con weekend to celebrate Marvel Studio’s 10th birthday, however! For you fancy fans out there, Abrams Books has something for you….
