From Screen to Shelf: The Funko Pop Figures We’re Still Waiting For – A Funko Pop! Wishlist!
Netflix’s “Sex Education” is now in its 4th and final season and we still have no Sex Education Funko Pops. We would love to see Pops of Otis, Maeve, Eric, and the rest of the gang.
Sex Education has gained a dedicated fan base thanks to its unique blend of humor, heart, and a refreshingly candid approach to topics surrounding sex and relationships yet it still surprisingly lacks its own line of Funko Pops or action figures.
The show explores the lives of teenagers navigating the complexities of their sexuality and has become a cultural phenomenon, sparking important conversations and resonating with viewers of all ages.
One of the key elements that has contributed to the show’s success is its diverse and relatable cast of characters. From the awkward but endearing Otis to the outspoken and confident Maeve, each character brings their own quirks and struggles to the forefront and is a show deserving of a Funko Pop! series to celebrate the characters.
The Wheel of Time
This cool Amazon Prime series is now in its second season and really deserves a series of Funko Pops.
Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy series has captured the imaginations of viewers with its sprawling world, rich mythology, and compelling characters and has quickly built a dedicated fan base that eagerly awaits collectibles that celebrate this captivating series.
One of the key reasons “The Wheel of Time” deserves its own line of Funko Pop! figures is the depth of its character roster. From the enigmatic Moiraine to the courageous Rand al’Thor, each character is a unique and integral part of the story’s tapestry.
“The Wheel of Time” is one of those series that has introduced a new generation of viewers to the fantasy genre, inspiring a sense of wonder and adventure. Funko Pop! figures would serve as a physical reminder of the show’s ability to transport audiences to a realm of magic, prophecies, and destiny.
The story follows a group of young individuals who discover they have a part to play in an ancient prophecy to save the world from a malevolent force known as the Dark One. Led by the enigmatic Moiraine, they embark on a perilous journey filled with political intrigue, mythical creatures, and personal challenges. As they navigate this treacherous world, they must grapple with their newfound powers and the weight of their destiny, all while uncovering secrets about themselves and the past.
