You’ve longed for it. You’ve craved it. Its absence has created a hole in a part of you that you didn’t even know existed.
But you have been patient, and your patience will be rewarded.
Now, it is time.
You guessed it. It is time for FUNKO FIGHT CLUB 2!!!!
For those of you who missed it last year, Funko Fight Club is where we answer an age-old question: If a bunch of Funko Pop Vinyl figures based on licensed characters came alive, who would win an all-out, no-holds-barred battle royale?
Over the past year, I have acquired many (some would say too many) new Funko Pop Vinyl figures. In fact, I now have a total of 52 figures in my collection. In Funko Fight Club 2, 26 brand new figures will be competing for the title of Funko Fight Club champion! I have separated these characters into 3 categories: Comic Books, Movies and TV, and a very special category where two super-teams will battle it out for cartoon supremacy.
The characters in each category will battle it out, single knock-out style. There are no fixed brackets (other than keeping the characters in the different categories separate until the finals). That way, I can arrange the match-ups to be as interesting as possible.
How will the winners of each battle be determined? That’s where you come in! I am going to set up a poll for each fight, and the character with the most votes by a certain time will move on to the next round. In the case of a tie, the character I voted for will win (I am the boss, after all). Feel free to vote on any basis you want. You can vote based on fighting ability, coolness, whatever. I’m going to imagine the little figures actually fighting each other and choose the winners based on who I think would win such an adorable contest. Tee hee! So cute!
I’ve also planned a couple surprises this time around. The first is that we are going to have play-in battles (sort of like what they do before the first round of the NCAA March Madness tournament). I will post the polls for the play-in matches next week. Other surprises will be revealed as the tournament progresses!
So get ready, everyone! Funko Fight Club is going to be bigger and better (and pretty much the same-er) than ever!
The battle begins on Monday!
FUNKO FIGHT CLUB 2 BAMPF!
