I’m fairly impressed that I’ve been able to avoid the urge to collect Funko POP! figures considering that Funko has licensed everything from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe to The Muppets. That streak may be ending with the announcement of the Big Trouble in Little China Funko POP! figures.
Most of the main players from John Carpenter’s cult classic will be available in this highly collectible format including Gracie Law and David Lo Pan along with the Three Storms: Thunder, Rain and Lightning. It does make me a little sad that Wang Chi and The Chinese Wildman did not get any love this time around.
You know what is even better? Funko also announced a series of Big Trouble in Little China retro-styled ReAction action figures. These limited articulation figures are a call back to the Kenner-era Star Wars action that so many Gen X-ers melted, maimed and otherwise abused. The standout for me has to be Lo Pan which features his little eyeball covered sentinel … looks like an instabuy for me!
Sponsor and friends of the site Entertainment Earth has the first round of Big Trouble in Little China Funko POP! and ReAction figures up for preorder with an estimated release date in February.
