Funko Pop! To Make Hannibal Figurines
by Haylee Fisher (@haylee_fisher)
Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller announced on Twitter last night that toy company Funko will soon make vinyl figures based on the fan-favorite show through their popular Pop! line.
Characters featured in the set include Jack Crawford, two versions of Will Graham (crime-fighting and institutionalized), a corporeal version of the StagMan that haunts Will’s thoughts, and of course a knife-wielding Hannibal Lecter himself. There will also be a blood-spattered, presumably post-kill version of Hannibal available only as an exclusive at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. No word on whether this is a first set or more collections will follow. (Who’s with me in wanting to see an Alana Bloom, Beverly Katz, Abigail Hobbs or even Winston the dog?)
Funko is probably best known for their bobbleheads, of which they have created over 1000, but their ever in-demand vinyl Pop! figures produced 57 exclusives at last year’s SDCC alone. Other recent collections released to the general public have included Magic: The Gathering, Finding Nemo, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead.
Check out upcoming Hannibal figures below. Which one is your favorite? Anyone want to pick up the Comic-Con exclusive for me?
