Somewhere, hidden in the back of a binder owned by one Leslie Knope, is a dream that spells out how her very own likeness will be used to make a toy that will delight children; especially if those children live in Pawnee, Indiana. Well, her dream is (sorta) coming true!
I am no child, but I can guarantee you that this new line of Pop! figures from Funko is LITERALLY the best news I have seen all day! These latest editions to the Pop! Vinyl family will feature the gang from the Parks and Recreation Department: Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson, April Ludgate, Andy Dwyer, Andy’s alter ego Burt Macklin, and everyone’s favorite little horse, Lil’ Sebastian! Take a look through the gallery and try to pick a favorite…
While this current line-up is nearly as good as the waffles at JJ’s Diner, I really hope to see a Ben Wyatt, Donna Meagle, Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins in the future. After all, even Pop! Leslie needs her bestest gal pal!
Looks like the Burt Macklin figure will be exclusively sold at Hot Topic, but the others are available to purchase wherever Funko Pop! Vinyls are sold this July.
