The purpose of the TI Pop Previews column is to give insight and educate Funko Pop collectors on what is coming up in the market. My aim is not to influence the market but to help collectors navigate on what Funko Pops to buy and collect.
Here we go with my top 5 in no particular order.
They got sunglasses, hair color, facial hair earrings and even his leg calves to scale down pat but I thought he could have had a bit more of a belly. Maybe in this version he is on a keto diet. Still I am impressed on this one. The attention to detail was very thoughtful. They even got him raising the eyebrow! This is a recommend for any foodie who loves Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
The X-Men are making a fierce comeback into pop culture and these pops depict the Gambit and Rogue that many grew up with in the 90’s. Entertainment Earth has a GTID version of gambit and Hot Topic has Rogue doing a flying punch it seems. I am definitely a big fan of this power couple in pop form as they seem ready to do battle defending us from villains like Magneto and the Brotherhood of Evil.
All must haves for any star wars nerd. In this set we have Han In Carbonite, a Deluxe Vader in Meditation Chamber, Luke with Tauntaun, Han and Leia Two Pack, Leia Ewok Celebration, and Luke Training With Yoda. These are simply amazing and I would get 2 sets of these, one to display and one to store in the box.
One of my favorite sitcoms growing up in the 90s. I was kinda sad how the series ended (insert sad face emoji face) but these pops will give me some happy closure. Every character has an amazing expression or pose and appropriate accessory. Baby Sinclair with the frying pan tops all though. I hope his arm moves up and down so I can have him swing down the pan on innocent victims saying, “Not the Mama Not the Mama.” LOL.
Star Trek has buzzing again since Star Trek Discovery took off last year. These capture some awesome detail head to toe. I’m hearing great things about Star Trek: Picard and the reception have been pretty good. So I am crossing my fingers for a pops from the series too in the near future.
Hope you enjoyed my top 5. Until next time…
