If you’re anything like me, you’ve been looking at your forlorn, staffed-only-by-Stormtroopers vintage Kenner Death Star playset and you’ve been thinking to yourself, “Hey, you know who would look good in the gunner seat of that top-floor cannon? The Demogorgon would.” Fortunately, Funko, the makers of the Stranger Things vinyl pops, hears us. Coming this August, Funko is rolling out two boxed sets of action figures based on the addictive Netflix show…which means you can sit down with the gang to watch the new season this Halloween and look nervously over at Will Byers and wonder “is he okay?”
The accessories are to die for: Lucas has his slingshot. Eleven has some Eggos, as she should. The Demogorgon…well…that’s scary enough without accessories.
These figures are in the “Star Wars scale” (assuming 3 3/4″ as the height of an average adult male), so they are most definitely compatible with your existing collection. They can hang out with Twiki and catch a ride in Luke’s landspeeder…and they can hide out while Batman fights the Demogorgon.
These are the Stranger Things we’ve been waiting for…now we just have to wait…patiently…possibly in a cupboard with a string of Christmas lights. Or maybe that’s just me.
