It’s that time of year again where we attempt to figure out the perfect gifts for our friends and family. Sometimes this is an easy process, while sometimes we just need a push in the right direction. I’m here to help you do that this year with some must-have Funko Pop!s figures. These little guys are always fun for just about anyone in the family because there’s such a huge collection of them spread across the broad now.
They cover various characters and moments in pop culture that we cannot get enough of but keeps us wondering where we are going to have room to store all these wonderful Pop! figures we keep purchasing and attaining from our friends and family members at Christmas time. Where there’s a will there’s an empty shelf begging for the latest release from Funko to grace it.
John Wick with Dog – $10.99
Everyone is loving Keanu Reeves these days. One of the many reasons is because of his beloved character John Wick. While this one is a pre-order item that comes out on December 13th, this particular Funko Pop will please any Keanu Reeves lover. Plus, who wouldn’t want to have him and his pup by their side? You can pre-order a John Wick and his dog pop figures here.
Hedwig 10″ (Target Exclusive) – $69.95
Harry’s owl, Hedwig, quickly became the world’s pet the moment Hagrid gifted the dear animal to Harry on his eleventh birthday. While one could settle for a small version of the beloved white owl, why do that when they can have a ten-inch version of the owl? Just imagine him sitting on the collector’s trunk containing the entire Harry Potter book collection. This version of Hedwig is by far the best guard that any fan could ask for this holiday season. You can purchase the Hedwig pop figure here.
Shazam! – $8.36
Out of all the superhero films that have come out this year, Shazam! is one of the biggest surprises this year. Not only was the film a much-needed breath of fresh air in the DCU, now along with the Blu-ray this year, a Shazam! figure can accompany it! If you are feeling extra generous, there’s always Darla, Mary Freddy, Eugene, and Pedro too available as well. Make this gift grab a family affair! You can purchase the Shazam! pop figure here.
Goose – $6.48
Before even seeing Captain Marvel in theaters, people knew about Goose. While new fans of the hit MCU film might not have known Goose’s true nature, they knew he was a special cat. One of the best moments of the entire film is the moment where Goose revealed for everyone to see that he is a Flerken. When the tentacles come out, he manages to store whatever object he swallows in his belly. Goose might seem harmless to most, but we all know he can save the universe if he wants to. You can purchase the Goose pop figure here.
Prison Mike – Prices Vary
The worst thing about prison was the Dementors! If there is a fan of The Office in your family, make sure you pick up Prison Mike for them. This Funko pop will provide hours of entertainment all on his own. Just imagine him peering over the edge of a couch in their best Prison Mike voice quoting lines from the show. Not only will your friend or loved one be happy, but you will also be entertained for hours as well. Help them be da bell of da ball! You can purchase the Prison Mike pop figure here.
Derek Zoolander – $6.30
Zoolander has provided fans with many laughs throughout the years. It was only a matter of time before each iconic character was made into a stand-alone figure. I for one would want someone to give me Derek just so I could put him in a dollhouse. At least this would not be a school for ants. He would have lots of room to walk around with his ridiculously good looking self. So just like Derek wanted to provide for Children Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too, help someone this holiday season discover there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. You can purchase the Derek Zoolander pop figure here.
Britney Spears – $7.49
We have been a slave to Britney Spears’ music since 1998. Although no one can deny how iconic her first music video was once upon a time, her 2001 VMA performance is still a favorite of the VMAs almost two decades later. The performance for “I’m A Slave For You” will always remain a highlight in Miss Spears’ career and forever remembered on a shelf for musicians or all things the 90s in someone’s home. You can purchase the Britney Spears pop figure here.
Kang and Kodos – $74.95
This is where the tides turn price-wise. While these next couple of sets are more expensive, this does not mean they are not worth the price. Any fan of The Simpsons has seen both Kang and Kodos over the year during the Halloween specials. These two aliens have become a fan favorite over the years and would be amazing for any Simpsons fan’s collection. Plus this could start a horror fan’s Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror collection. They can even add alien Maggie to the group! You can purchase Kang and Kodos here.
Millennium Falcon with Han Solo – $64.99
Anyone can appreciate this Funko replica of Han Solo and his Millennium Falcon. Fans of the character will appreciate the details on the spacecraft as well as placing it between various other memorabilia. The only needed addition to this one is a Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia. Then again something tells me if you are purchasing this for a diehard Star Wars fan they might already have those figures on their shelf somewhere. Obi-Wan suggests you want to go out and purchase Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon here.
Alice at the Mad Tea Party – $52.90
Originally only available in the Disney Parks, Alice at the Mad Tea Party can be purchased through the Disney Store as well now. The only thing that would make this better for an Alice in Wonderland fan is the addition of other characters in this beloved theme park ride to go along with her. Since they are late for many important dates in December, Alice is the only option available this year. You can go down the rabbit hole and purchase Alice at the Mad Tea Party here.
If these do not provide you with enough options don’t forget about our other Christmas guides available as well with many other Funko suggestions! There is also last year’s guide as well! With everyone being a fan of something or someone, these figures are the perfect gift for any friend or family member. The only problem you will run into is picking just one for the numerous people in your life. Until next year I will have to dream about someone buying me Hedwig or Kang and Kodos to start my Treehouse of Horror Collection.
