Funko jumped on the marketing train for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 with new figurines for the MCU threequel ahead of its May 2023 release.

Although Guardians 3 is only the second MCU movie of the year to release, it's become the most anticipated superhero movie of 2023 amongst fans as hype builds for its debut. While its popularity amongst its Marvel Studios peers continues to rise, the threequel's merchandising run also adds to that excitement with new collectibles and commemorative items highlighting the film's biggest characters.

The team's last release, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, came with a special round of Funko Pops! that gave the team holiday-themed items to show off in their figurines.

Now, with Phase 5 of the MCU only a few weeks away from starting after the new year, Funko took the opportunity to put the Guardians back in the spotlight with a new round of Pops! that show where they'll be in their next adventure.

New Funkos Release for Guardians 3

Funko released pre-orders for nine new Funko Pops! highlighting characters from Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Chris Pratt's Star-Lord stands ready for battle in his new team uniform with his blasters in hand, complete with facial hair and a focused look in his eyes.

Cosmo also gets a second variant of her Funko pop that's described as a Flocked Funko, giving her a fur-like texture instead of the usual plastic. This Pop! will be a Hot Topic exclusive.

Guardians 3 Marketing Hypes Up MCU Threequel

Funko pulls out all the stops with this new line of Pops! for Guardians 3, celebrating the core team of heroes along with the exciting new additions that are set to take starring roles in the threequel. Highlighting the characters' new costumes along with upgrades to their weaponry heading into the next adventure, these figurines are sure to be a hit once they become fully public before the movie hits theaters.

The only notable exception in this lineup is Zoe Saldaña's Gamora, who will make a thrilling return to this franchise after being absent from the Holiday Special. Although she was seen in a couple of short shots from the original trailer for the movie, she'll be one of the threequel's big surprises early in the runtime as fans wait to find out what she's been up to since leaving Earth in Avengers: Endgame.

While these are sure to be far from the last collectibles that come for Guardians 3, they'll be fantastic additions to any Funko collection before the Guardians take on what will be their final mission as a team together.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will debut in theaters on May 5.
