So in the last few years, Funko Pop figures have become absolutely massive, and you now see them everywhere. At first I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about, but gradually they’ve started to grow on me, with their massive heads and weird beady eyes!
Plus the range of characters you can get now is insane, and so inevitably there’s been quite a few I’ve seen that I wouldn’t mind owning. I don’t currently have any, despite having had my eye on some of these for quite a while, but I decided that this month when I get paid, I might finally treat myself to one (or maybe two!).
The two that are most immediate on my wish list are two of the larger ones:
- Treebeard from Lord of the Rings
I love both the Lord of the Rings books and films, and I love Treebeard, so this one is definitely a must for me!
- The Night King and Viserion from Game of Thrones
I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, so I’ve had my eye on quite a few of the Game of Thrones figures for a while, but this one is easily the coolest!
And of the normal sized Pop figures, I’ve particularly had my eye on:
- Harry Potter and Hedwig from Harry Potter
The many Harry Potter figures were obviously going to be on my wish list, but in terms of the different Harrys I’ve seen, I particularly like the one that includes Hedwig!
- Dumbledore from Harry Potter
I don’t know what it is, but Dumbledore just looks adorable as a Pop figure!
- Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy
Groot is another character where I’ve seen a few different versions of him, and whilst I do like teenage Groot holding a gun, adorable baby Groot is my favourite!
- L from Death Note
L was easily my favourite Death Note character, so I’d quite like the Pop figure!
- Simba from The Lion King
I’ve always loved The Lion King, but a lot of it in this case is just that I think the figure looks really cool! There’s actually a few Disney Pop figures I wouldn’t mind owning.
- Ryuk from Death Note
Sometimes I think some of the Pop figures can look a little weird and not that much like the characters, but I definitely think they really captured Ryuk in all of his creepy glory with this one! I love how he’s even holding a little apple and everything!
So what do you think of Funko Pop figures? Do you own any? Which ones are on your wish list?
