I get that part. I have kids too. I bought my kids some of those fun-looking Funko toys until they grew out of it at around the age of 5. Now they want zip to do with them and have moved on to Legos and action figures. My sense is that many of the adults paying oodles for the artwork and limited edition collectibles aren't generally doing this with their toddlers and newborns in mind. And, that's fine. Like I said earlier, while seeing Captain America in diapers may be cute to look at, it doesn't really captivate my interest. I can't help but see this as a trendy-type thing that likely won't last long.

Odd. I couldn't find them there.

Never mind. I see it.

He's not in diapers though... That would just be weird

I saw these pics at the reveal and I think that they are a no brainer. So much universal appeal. Small so the price point should be fine. Cute so the youngins, girlfriends and wives may like them, and statues of comic characters so a lot of us collectors wouldn't mind having them!

Like even a 3-pack for $100 - $200 or something would be cool.

There's only one that's been released for preorder (Captain America). The rest of them (Iron Man & Thanos) haven't been released for preorder yet. You can easily find Captain America on BBTS's website. Under 'search' type in Gentle Giant Captain America, and you'll see him pictured.
