    I feel like Funko Pop won this war already.

    Mighty Muggs look so much nicer than Funko Pop in my opinion. I'd welcome this!

    Better than those awful Pop Vinyls. I kinda regret not getting any when they originally came out but they weren't super-cheap here and the one or two that I wanted the most were nowhere to be seen over here.

    Since Funko has the rights to make FNaF merch, I'd be down for that if it meant better figures.

    I liked Mighty Muggs. I only was able to get Shockwave and Cobra Commander before they disappeared from shelves here.

    Funko Pop should be the one to utilize the License.

    Mighty Muggs was always too expensive.

    Also remember Pop is Bobble Heads Muggs was just barely poseable marshmellow figures.

    Mighty Muggs were painted far superior to anything Funko now makes.

    Yay. More non--transformable Transformers.

    That's not gonna stop Hasbro from trying to get some of that sweet vinyl market action...again.

    Awesome news! Never managed to pick one of these guys up, but I've always loved the aesthetic. Would make for a wonderful desk piece ;)

    Meh never really was all that interested in the TF releases. Always had more interest in the SW ones and even then it was just some figs.

    I loved these little things. I have the full set of TF Mighty Muggs and my ex-girlfriend had a pretty impressive collection of all of them. They are far cooler in the boxes than out though.

    I have a couple of TF Mighty Muggs and would be happy to see them make a comeback.

    I'd prefer new Pop figures rather than Mighty Muggs. I always thought Mighty Muggs where just too big for their own good, and I didn't like how they were all just the same figure with different paint and maybe an accessory, whereas Pops have unique molding.

    Funko Pops are only bobble heads in the Marvel and Star Wars lines. Everything else is a regular vinyl figure. Which really sucks when trying to make a custom using a Marvel head and and a non-Marvel/Star Wars body :p

    Didn\'t Funko do a movie Prime and BB? Surprised Hasbro didn\'t jump to have them produce a whole series. Collector\'s would have gone bat-nut crazy.

    I'm okay with this. Funko just goes crazy with their releases, I'm surprised there were only 7 figures from AOE. It is a little strange that they haven't made any G1 versions or anything since though, they even have some G.I.Joe ones.
