4K Media has recently secured a raft of new licensing deals for the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! brand, most notably with collectibles company Funko and games retailer Gamestop. The deals were negotiated and announced by VP of Licensing & Marketing, Jennifer Coleman.
“We are elated to welcome both Funko and GameStop to the Yu-Gi-Oh! family. We are impressed with both companies’ creative designs for new and engaging collectibles encompassing so many of our central characters and monsters,” said Coleman. “Yu-Gi-Oh! fans around the globe eagerly await each new licensed product introduction, which not only keeps the brand fresh and front of mind, but also serves to invigorate demand for all things Yu-Gi-Oh!”
The deals will see Funko launch a line of stylized vinyl figures and other related Yu-Gi-Oh! Merchandise, while Gamestop will create a distinctive line of 4-inch Yu-Gi-Oh! figurines that will be in their brick and mortar stores, as well as online.
