So this is going to be a bit of a no-thrills kind of post, just a list of people, characters, machines, monsters and what nots I’d love to see Funko pull their fingers out and make some pops of! So many of my favourite characters have already received the pop-over, but there’s still a lot more missing for me!
This list is going to be so individual for anyone reading it, so you might not care one bit! Likely there will be people out there who think that this and that and the other is missing from my list… No; it’s missing from your list. If it needed to be on my list, there’s a good chance it’s not missing. On the other hand you might be thinking, why oh why do you want to see that turned in to a funko and ploncked on a shelf?
Well… why not get involved. Write in the comments what you want to see funko popped and what you think I’m crazy for wanting! Oh and don’t be shy, this is a brand new site (at the time of writing) so you might be the first or only comment for months… people will warm up to this place eventually!
- The rest of the Devil’s Rejects. I’ve got Cpt. Spaulding (although I’d like to see him in his hobo clothes from the second film) but what about Otis, Baby, Rufus and Mother Firefly. Also from the first film let’s include Tiny as an oversized Pop and Dr Satan.
- The crew of the Jupiter Mining Corp starship the Red Dwarf. Just the originals will do; Lister, Rimmer, Kryten (although not the first time we see him, I always thought he looked a bit weird), Cat and Holly (somehow… might need to be in a watch or when male Holly gets demoted to night watchman). Maybe Kochanski, a scutter and the vindaloo monster polymorph as an oversized pop. Red dwarf, starbug and blue midget might make good Funko Pop Rides too!
- I know that Funko want more Nintendo licenses and I must say they’re definately missing from the range! Don’t we all want Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Princess Peach, Princess Zelda & Link (as a double pack maybe), Yoshi, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Kirby… and so on and so forth!
- I’d like to see the American Horror Story Funko Pop range extended to include, Kai Anderson, Dandy Mott, Jimmy Darling, Legless Suzie, Sister Mary Eunice McKee and Ethel Darling.
- You’ll soon see I’m a big Rob Zombie fan so there are some wicked characters from 31 I’d like to see – Doom-head, Sick-head, Schizo-head, Psycho-head, Sex-head and Death-head.
- The first studio album lineup of Slipknot with Joey Jordison, Chris Fen and a homage to Paul Gray.
- The whole of the Marilyn Manson band (I know that they’re currently finally bringing out just Marilyn Manson himself soon), preferably from the first few albums; Portrait of an American Family, Antichrist Superstar or Mechanical Animals era.
- Sacha Baron Cohen is one funny man so I’d like to see Borat, Bruno and Nobby – his best characters (except for Jean Girard, but he’s already got a Pop).
- The whole cast of Blood drive, but especially Julian Slink… Quite possibly the best tv character of all time.
