Fresh from New York Comic Con (NYCC), Nacelle — the multimedia company behind The Toys That Made Us and A Toy Store Near You — has unveiled more details on who will be producing merch for its interconnected NacelleVerse properties.
Ahead of its panel at NYCC today, Nacelle exclusively revealed to The Pop Insider and our sister publication, The Toy Book, that Funko, Grueling Magnets, and Bull Airs are among the first licensees on board to create products inspired by Biker Mice From Mars, Robo Force, Power Lords, The Great Garloo, and other properties in the NacelleVerse. The deals follow a recent pact with Oni Press to create comic books and graphic novels based on Nacelle intellectual property (IP).
The influx of licensing and partnership inquiries we’ve been receiving is proof that the NacelleVerse is gaining momentum simultaneously with drastically increased scale, we couldn’t be having more fun!”
Funko will produce Pop! Vinyl figures for Robo Force and Power Lords in 2024 followed by Biker Mice From Mars in 2025. Grueling Magnets will serve as the official magnet supplier of the NacelleVerse following founder Penny Daniels’ work with Nacelle producing promotional magnets for A Toy Store Near You, The Toys That Made Us, and Monster Squad. Finally, Bull Airs, a New York-based custom show company, will produce custom kicks inspired by Biker Mice From Mars.
Biker Mice From Mars is in development as an animated series in partnership with Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, National Lampoon’s Van Wilder), Maximum Effort, and Fubo. Additional properties in the NacelleVerse include Sectaurs and Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa.
Rooted in entertainment, Nacelle launched its consumer products division last year through reimagined classic toy brands, including Robo Force, which debuted at specialty retailers during the holiday season.
