Marvel Studios is finally making some much needed headway on shaping up its Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When that happens at the end of this year, several related merchandise are also about to hit the stores. The collectors and fans have been waiting for this. No movies will be releasing under the Marvel Studios banner till Spring 2021. This means that Marvel and Disney are shifting all their focus to the Disney+ MCU web-series like the upcoming Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and of course WandaVision. New collectible items based on WandaVision are about to be released. WandaVision Pop vinyl figures are part of the new leak that has made its way to twitter.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is currently still filming. It has ways to go before reaching post-production. This means that the path is set for WandaVision to cut the red ribbon and officially begin Disney+ MCU TV-Verse. From the current slate, WandaVision is all set to premiere at the end of the coming month. The WandaVision Pops could not have been released at a more perfect time.

A recent post from the Popkeep Twitter page reveals this leak to the world. There are brand new Funko Pops from WandaVision, 7 in total to be exact. There are three Funko Pop figurines for Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch, ranging from the 1950’s, 1970’s, and Halloween. Vision also has three different versions – Halloween, 1950’s human, and 1950’s robot version.

There’s another Funko Pop added to this list. Here’s the first ever view for the same:
The WandaVision Pops, unlike the MCU Pops released before, do not give out any critical information that could act as spoilers. That is a blessing in disguise. They are still very valuable collectible items for Funko Pop enthusiasts and Marvel fans. Half of the merchandise is in black and white while the other half is in color, which reflects the tone and setting of the show. This is truly a very different take on Funko Pop figures. Marvel knows what it’s doing.
What’s even more interesting is the fact that the Vision Pop figures literally have the exact same body. The only difference is the head portion for his human and robotic iterations. This would translate to the 1950’s Trailer portion that slowly fades into the modern day era of the WandaVision trailer. They have taken a lot of effort to maintain consistency. Is there something we are missing here? Moreover there are three eras explored within the WandaVision Pop figures- the 1950’s, the 1970’s, and the 1990’s (or the Modern Day era – we are still not sure). This must mean these are the time periods the show will focus on.
Time will probably play a very important role in WandaVision. The show will have nine episodes and the merchandise tweet states “Coming Soon” in the caption. It will probably release before the show’s Thanksgiving Weekend 2020 release date. Fans will be eagerly waiting to get their hands on the new WandaVision Pops. Let’s just hope the show lives up to the hype Marvel Studios has managed to create.
