It was only a matter of time before the popular Netflix series was given the POP! treatment. Funko revealed some concept photos on social media to gauge interest and you can read it all from their blog:
In September, Funko posted two concept images of Eleven and Barb in an effort to gauge the interest of fans and customers. The images – which were shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – resulted in a huge amount of interest from fans around the world with everyone saying one thing: “When can we get these?!”
“Bringing Stranger Things to Funko is symbolic of our connection to our customers as mutual fans of pop culture”, said Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We feel grateful for the privilege to create our version of these wonderful characters, but we never forget it starts with the collectors. These figures would not have been possible without every single share, like, and comment from you. Friends don’t lie.”
The Stranger Things figures are available for pre-order now and should hit retail shelves in early 2017 with an MSRP of $9.99 USD.
There are Hot Topic and Think Geek exclusives, as well as Eleven and Demogorgon chase variants to be on the look out for.
