Horror author extraordinaire Stephen King will soon have one more milestone added to a long and illustrious career when he’s immortalized as a brand new Funko POP! vinyl figure.
Honestly, we’re kind of surprised it took this long for it to happen.
Numerous characters from the author’s creations have gotten the Funko treatment over the years and Pennywise and the Losers Club from IT, especially, have been merchandised like crazy recently in the wake of Muschietti’s big-screen adaptation.
There are two versions currently listed on the Funko site’s coming soon page.
The first features the author in grey pants and black shirt holding a book in his hand with his trademark glasses firmly in place.
The second, which will be available exclusively at Barnes and Noble, features a blood-stained King in jeans, black shirt, and grey jacket holding an ax in one hand and a book in the other.
Both figures are listed as part of the POP! Icons series, but neither have a specific release date listed at this time.
They would definitely make great holiday gifts for fans of Stephen King and horror collectors in general.
I mean, who wouldn’t want their very own Stephen King sitting on their shelf next to their book collection?
