Though Disney·Pixar's A Bug's Life has since gone down in history for being "the forgotten Pixar film", I still adore it tremendously and have so many classic childhood memories associated with it. With that said, I'm always incredibly thrilled when ANY A Bug's Life merchandise gets released. It's a very rare treat in these days.
Leave it to Funko to remember the film and give us fans something cute to add to our A Bug's Life collection with these "POP!" vinyl figures of Heimlich, Flik and Princess Atta– released just last month! These hit US shelves in very late November/early December, not too long after the film's 18th anniversary.
As you all know by now, if you've been following along, I absolutely love Funko POP! figures (click the designated label to the right of this page to check out all the ones I own). I think their designs are always so adorable and spot on and I love how perfect they are for both kid and adult collectors. These three are numbers 27, 28 and 29 of the ongoing Disney series, for those of you keeping track.
The paint application on these is just fantastic. Flik and Atta even have a semi-metallic paint that gives them a subtle sparkly look. Some of my favorite details include Atta's clear wings as well as Flik's telescope, hat and backpack. It's also awesome that Flik and Atta come with stands for easier display (they stand up OK on their own, but they are pretty precarious; the stands help out a ton). If I had to pick a favorite though, it'd have to be Heimlich as he's always been one of my favorites.
Let's take a closer look!
These ones, including their antennae, are all between 4"- 4.5" tall, have articulated heads and typically retail for around $10.99. With this trio and a handful of POPs based on Ratatouille coming later this year, that means every Pixar film has been represented in Funko's POP! collection (though technically there haven't been any Cars 2 specific characters other than Mater released yet).

You can find Funko products at Toys R Us, Target, Walmart, Hot Topic, Barnes and Noble, etc...really wherever collectibles are sold. I've also included some direct links to Amazon below (which is my "go to" site).
I can't recommend these enough! If you're any kind of Pixar/A Bug's Life fan, be sure to pick them up for your collection. Let me know your favorite/any thoughts you might have in the comments below!
