It’s that time of the week for our Funko Friday post and since it’s the season to be jolly I thought I would share some of the holiday festive themed Funko Pop that you can collect or purchase for that Funko addict friend of yours. I’ll be honest they don’t have much in terms of festive holiday Funko Pops but they have 1 or 2 for the diehard collector. Every year Funko make a few special themed Funko Pops in keeping with the season.
Belle – Beauty and the Beast
Funko has released more Beauty and the Beast Disney Funko Pops and this time it’s Belle and Beast in their winter attire from the song ‘Something there’. They’ve also released a Gaston Funko Pop which I honestly cannot wait to purchase!!! Look at how cute and Disney-esque this little Funko Pop is!! You can have her with her fur hood up or down and she also comes with cute little birds too!!!
Beast – Beauty and the Beast
We see the Beast here donning his special winter attire along with some cute little birdies on his left hand and on top of his mane(?). Look at his adorable little face though!! It was a good decision to bring these out when there is so much hype for the live action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson. The beast looks very strange though doesn’t he?? I’m sure it’ll be a great film but I am holding my breath.
Snow Miser – The Year Without Santa Claus
This is probably one of the most detailed Funko’s in terms of facial feature, I mean this Funko Pop has a mouth!! There is actual character to this Funko Pop thanks to it’s stance. I love the colours of this Funko Pop, the compliment it’s partner funko pop so well!! The Snow Miser is a character from the Rankin/Bass television special The Year Without a Santa Claus. Snow Miser is the kinder, more easy-going of the two brothers. He tells bad jokes and puns about snow and cold weather.
Heat Miser – The Year Without Santa Claus
The Heat Miser is a character from the Rankin/Bass television special The Year Without a Santa Claus. He lives in a volcano and controls the hot weather around the earth. He and his half-brothers Snow Miser and North Wind are the offspring of Mother Nature. (It should be noted that both Snow Miser and Heat Miser were not featured in the original poem that the special is based on.) Heat Miser lives within an active volcano with his 6 minions. Not the cutest of Funko’s but certainly the most vibrant!! I love these fiery colours and his red nose is pretty cute too.
Buddy – Elf
Elf is probably one of the most popular Christmas films out there so of course Funko would create and Buddy Funko Pop. They’ve captured Will Ferrel’s hair perfectly. He is such a cinnamon roll!! William “Buddy” Hobbs is the main character of the movie. One Christmas Eve baby Buddy witnessed Santa Claus coming down the chimney and eating cookies. Buddy spotted a teddy bear and crawled into Santa’s sack. At the North Pole Buddy crawled out and surprised Santa and the elves. Papa Elf took him and raised him as his own child. He grew up a elf.
Clark Giswald (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation)
This is the third in the “National Lampoon” series about the Griswold family. In this sequel, the Griswolds must deal with a holiday with their in-laws. This is the Clark Giswald Funko Pop and look how cute he is in this festive hat!!! He is the main protagonist of the Lampoon series. Clark, who is nicknamed, “Sparky” by his wife, stands for the traditional middle class male head of (nuclear family) household. He wants the best for his family, and will go to gravely unreasonable expenses to achieve it.
Cousin Eddie (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
We have another National Lampoon’s Funko Pop and this time it’s Cousin Eddie!! Look at his gigantic hat!! I’m loving the added chest hair, it tickles me and I am loving the cigar. This is probably my favourite Christmas themed Funko. There is so much character to it!!
The Elf on the Shelf (The Elf on the Shelf)
Am I the only one who finds his arm posture quite creepy?? He is a creepy looking Funko isn’t he?? He’s like the Annabelle of Funkos’. The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is a 2004 children’s picture book, written by Carol Aebersold and daughter Chanda Bell and illustrated by Coë Steinwart. The book tells a Christmas-themed story, written in rhyme, that explains how Santa Claus knows who is naughty and who is nice. It describes elves visiting children between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, after which they return to the North Pole until the next holiday season. The Elf on the Shelf comes in a keepsake box that features a hardbound picture book and a small soft toy in the form of a pixie scout elf.
WHO DOESN’T WANT A FESTIVE DANCING GROOT?! He is just adorable!! Baby Groot is probably one of the cutest characters in the Marvel Universe. He comes for the comic Guardians of the Galaxy. Brash space adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself the quarry of relentless bounty hunters after he steals an orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain. To evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with four disparate misfits: gun-toting Rocket Raccoon, treelike-humanoid Groot, enigmatic Gamora, and vengeance-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when he discovers the orb’s true power and the cosmic threat it poses, Quill must rally his ragtag group to save the universe.
I love the colours of this Funko and his big round green eyes. I love the festive wreath around his neck, so cute!! Toothless is from the hit film How to Train your Dragon. Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a Norse teenager from the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. His progressive views and weird sense of humor make him a misfit, despite the fact that his father (Gerard Butler) is chief of the clan. Tossed into dragon-fighting school, he endeavors to prove himself as a true Viking, but when he befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless, he has the chance to plot a new course for his people’s future.
A Christmas Story is a 1983 American Christmas comedy film based on the short stories and semi-fictional anecdotes of author and raconteur Jean Shepard, based on his book In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, with some elements derived from Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories. The film was directed by Bob Clark. Now a Christmas season classic in the United States, it is shown numerous times on television, usually on the networks owned by Turner Broadcasting. In 2012, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically and aesthetically significant”.
The Old Man
The Old Man is the name they’ve given the father in the story. The pop is holding a lamp in a shape of a leg wearing stockings. The lamo is a sub-plot that ooccurs in the film. Except for the lamp shaped a s aleg there isn’t really much going on with this Funko, not my favourite form this series, but a must buy for any die-hard fan of the film.
The next pop from the series is Sheriff Ralphie who can be seen holding the BB Gun. Doesn’t he look a lot like the Milky Bar Kid?? Look at the size of that hat!!! It’s bugger than the Funko itself!!
Bunny Suit Ralphie
It’s worth mentioning for any of you die-hard funko pop fans that there is a flocked version of this Funko Pop so keep your eyes peeled. This has to be the cutest Funko from the whole series!! Look how cute and pink he is and those massive glasses!! he is precious!!!
