The initial wave of 6 figures includes characters from DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers and TaleSpin. The figures are scheduled to be released in early 2018.

The first wave includes Scrooge McDuck, with cane and money bag…

And of course, Darkwing Duck with his gas gun.

The chase figure for this assortment is a black and white Negaduck, Darkwing’s foe.

Funko is also the company behind the insanely popular Pop! Vinyl collection, which did over $400 million in sales in 2016.

The Disney Afternoon was a created-for-syndication two-hour animated television programming block, produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, with distribution through their syndication affiliate, Buena Vista Television. Before and after its cancellation, the shows in the block were rerun both on Disney Channel (during the mid-to-late 1990s) and on Toon Disney (all of them between the channel’s launch in 1998 and 2004, with some remaining until as late as 2008). Starting on October 2, 1995, four of the shows (Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, DuckTales, and Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers) were rerun on Disney Channel as a two-hour programming block called “Block Party” which aired on weekdays in the late afternoon/early evening. It originally ran from September 10, 1990 to August 29, 1997. For the 1997 and 1998 television seasons, it was replaced by an unnamed block, shortened to 90 minutes, followed by its replacement by Disney’s One Too for UPN in 1999. (Source: Wikipedia)
