    Toys Are Us: Blink-182 Get Funko Treatment

    Blink-182's Travis Barker (pictured left) and Mark Hoppus (right) are getting their own Funko figurines.

    What’s my age again? Blink-182, the celebrated San Diego pop-punk group whose members have been making a boatload of headlines lately, are finally getting their own…toys?

    Two members of the band -- drummer Travis Barker (currently battling some gnarly health issues) and vocalist/bassist Mark Hoppus (who recently alleged he helped capture, uh, Saddam Hussein) -- are receiving the coveted vinyl figurine treatment by Funko.

    Tom DeLonge, the trio's original lead singer/guitarist who got fired (or quit depending on who you ask) in 2015, has been left out of the toy company's plans -- as has the band's new-ish singer/guitarist Matt Skiba -- and will apparently have to wait for Funko likenesses of their own.

    Part of Funko’s Pop! Rocks line, the collectibles feature Hoppus wearing a shirt adorned with a blue octopus while holding his signature hot pink bass, and Barker depicted with a backwards baseball hat, face tattoos, a Famous Stars and Straps shirt (his own clothing line, naturally) and drumsticks.

    Dunno about you, but we're "feeling this." With San Diego’s annual Comic-Con right around the corner, it makes perfect sense that the toy company (whose booth attracts absolutely huge lines at the convention every year) would release editions of the Blink-182 band members since they’re locals. Nice SD tie-in, guys.

    Except, that's not exactly what's happening.

    According to a post on the Funko website, the two figures will be released sometime in September (womp, womp). No word yet on if they’ll be available for pre-order, or when they’ll be hitting the street specifically (stay tuned to Funko.com for more information).

    Nevertheless, clear out “all the small things” on that display shelf, Blink-182 Funkos are comin' in hot.
