One of our favorite conversations at the Nerd Fu dojo revolves around which Pop!’s we might see in the future. We all have our favorite TV show or movie that we’d love to see made into a series of Pop! figures and, unless someone makes a customer figure, we are often at the mercy of the Funko artists. Every once in a while thought, the stars align in just the right way and BOOM! we get something we always dreamed of.
Kids, hold on to your hats, because Funko must have seen the stars align. Just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas 2013, we are going to see three all-new characters from on of the best Christmas movies ever made – A Christmas Story.
A Christmas Story Pop! Figures – Who Do We Get
The lineup is limited to three figures, but something tells me we’ll be seeing more of these in upcoming years. We haven’t received the official word from Funko just yet, but it looks like the release date for these is sometime in November (based on a few retailer websites).
First up – Sheriff Ralphie
Well, just me and my trusty old…
Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle.
Lucky I’ve got a compass in the stock.
Well, I think I better have a look here.
Because one Ralphie wasn’t enough – Bunny Suit Ralphie
He looks like a deranged Easter bunny.
He does not!
He does, too.
He looks like a pink nightmare.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without The Old Man (complete with the Leg Lamp)
The old man’s eyes boggled…
overcome by art.
I know just the place for it.
Right in the middle of our front room window!
