It’s been with us for nearly a decade, but Attack On Titan is finally winding down. The manga has wrapped up and the anime is running through its last episodes, both on Funimation’s streaming service and Saturday evenings on Toonami. But Funi won’t let the Titans dissolve without one last party. They’re preparing a new wave of merchandise centered around the last season as well as the story as a whole. The merch will focus on Beast Titan and Colossal Titan, scouts Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Sasha, and Levi, and memorable moments from past seasons.
“Attack on Titan was part of the anime renaissance as storytelling became bolder and even more sophisticated,” says Anna Songco Adamian, Funimation Vice President of Licensing & Merchandise. “Funimation’s consumer products program saw a parallel trajectory of success in product development and retail distribution. The care in curation we put behind our licensing and merchandising program — along with our omnichannel approach for fan engagement — is part of Funimation’s success story with Attack on Titan.”
Translated from business-speak, that means we get new figures from Oniri Creations. The first of these depicts Corporal Levi in midair, swinging his blade toward the Female Titan’s arm. More figures are on the way but have yet to be revealed (the second is coming in the spring). “We are thrilled to create statues of Attack on Titan characters,” says Kevin Lapi, CEO of Oniri Creations. “We put a lot of effort in working on details, and we are looking forward to revealing our new statue to the fans!”
There will also be a new line of T-shirts at Hot Topic and other fandom-related retailer. The shirts, depicting Titans and scouts alike, were created by Ripple Junction, who has created tees for Attack On Titan in the past.
More products will be announced by Funimation and introduced throughout 2021, including retail promotions, expansion into the Latin American market, and chibi-style collectibles.
