Toy heavyweights Funko, the company behind the popular re-Action and Pop! vinyl lines, announced on Monday that they will be producing a line of Pop! vinyl figures for the surprise hit Netflix series Stranger Things. The dolls are due to hit toy stores and online merchants in early 2017.
Funko made the announcement via their website, after successfully gauging fan interest for a possible line based on characters from the show. Last month, the company posted concept images of Eleven and Barb online and were overwhelmed by the amount of interest they generated on social media. Funko’s Director of Marketing, Mark Robben, shared the same sentiment while expressing gratitude for the positive response from the show’s rabid fanbase.
The company also announced the full line of characters to be immortalized in Pop! form, along with variant versions of “Eleven with Eggos” and “Demogorgon” as a nod to the hardcore collector universe. Retail outlets Think Geek and Hot Topic will also be selling figures exclusive to their stores.
The Stranger Things line of Pop! vinyl figures are available for pre-order right now on Funko’s website, with an expectation to begin hitting store shelves in early 2017.
