This may Seem like it belongs on the social blog, but its work here.
Today Funko announced NFL Hall of Famers would become POP figures. 11 players and two coaches receive the Funko treatment.
For players you have Brett Favre, Terry Bradshaw, Deion Sanders, Lawrence Taylor, Dan Marino, Bo Jackson and more. The Coaches are Mike Ditka and Tom Landry. Sander’s also comes with exclusive options only found at Toys r us.
I like how these look a lot. I also like how it extends the NFL line and works well with the current players already in the line.
What I don’t like is how hard these things seem to find. I may find an NFL pop if I’m lucky, but it’s never a Pittsburgh Steeler. I have looked at multiple stores and can’t come away with Antonio Brown, or Big Ben. Only Can Newton and a couple Seahawks to be seen.
I think from the line I’ll pick up Bradshaw and Mike Ditka for the Pittsburgh connection.
The Funko sports line seems to be neglected a bit and this should help. Between this addition and the new NFL wave set to come out it looks like the sports line is starting to return again. Hopefully this leds to more NBA, NHL and MLB pops returning to the line.
