Funko POP! Figures have dramatically increased in popularity over the past few years. There are Funko Pop! Figures for nearly every pop culture franchise imaginable. These bobbleheads have become extremely popular, and inexpensive means to show one's fandom.
Kaiju fans have had their needs satisfied so far with several Godzilla Funko Pops, with over five varieties available. However, so far other Kaiju have been excluded from the Funko treatment.
Funko revealed that King Kong would be receiving his own Pop! as part of the promotion for Kong: Skull Island before the movie releases in March. The Pop! is 6'', and is described as 'Super Sized', much larger then an average Funko. The toy will be available for sale in January and is expected to retail for $16.99-17.99, which is what similar pops in this size range sell for.
There is still no word on further Kaiju pops, although since Godzilla got several variants, it is possible King Kong could as well. Will you be adding the last King of Skull Island to your collection?
