This Stranger Things Funko Pop Vinyl Toy Is Perfect, Needs to Happen
"Funko is completely strung out on Stranger Things," company says.
Toy-maker Funko has revealed a mock-up for a new Pop Vinyl figure based on the character Eleven from the new Netflix '80s sci-fi show, Stranger Things.
As you can see, it's just about perfect. The sculpture, which hasn't entered production yet (and may never), features her trademark short hair, borrowed dress and jacket, and even a bloody nose because of her super-powers. We also see that she's holding Eggo waffles, her favorite food.
According to Funko's tweet, an Eleven figure is the company's "number one wish" for a Pop Vinyl toy. For this to actually happen, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer would presumably need to sign off, while Funko would probably have to get Eggo owner Kellogg's permission.
Funko also launched a Twitter poll that asks which Stranger Things character they should make a Pop Vinyl figure for next, if it gets the green-light. Options include Barb, Dustin, Dr. Brenner, and even the Demogorgon. Dustin is leading the way with 39 percent of the vote as of August 23. The poll closes later today.
The Pop Vinyl line already has collections based on some of the biggest brands in entertainment such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, DC, Marvel, and many more.
Stranger Things debuted in July on Netflix. 12-year-old Millie Bobby Brown plays Eleven, while other child actors round out the group of teenagers who make up the show's main cast. Wynona Ryder, Matthew Modine, and David Harbour also star in the program.
A second season for Stranger Things has not yet been confirmed, but Season 1 ended on a number of cliffhangers, so fans are likely hoping they haven't seen the last of the show.
