There’s no denying that Funko’s POP! Vinyl dolls have gained a cult following, with people searching high and low for the rarest and most amazing dolls to add to their collection. But while there are a variety of great TV and movie-themed POP! vinyl dolls, gaming POP vinyl dolls are more of a rarity and seem to sell out pretty quickly after launch.
The good news is that this is slowly changing, with a range of gaming POP! vinyl dolls available to buy online from the likes of God of War, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Tomb Raider. Here, we round up the best gaming POP! Vinyl dolls available to buy right now to enhance your growing collection.
1. Kingdom Hearts Organisation 13 Mickey
While the highly-anticipated Kingdom Hearts 3 isn’t out until early next year, you can already pick up a Kingdom Hearts-themed POP! Vinyl doll from GAME in the UK. This one, entitled Organization 13 Mickey, is one of two designs originally available at San Diego Comic Con 2018, and we don’t think it’ll be around for much longer.
It’s already £47+ on Amazon, but thankfully, you won’t have to pay as much when purchasing it from GAME.
2. Spyro & Sparx
Hot off the heels of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy hitting shelves in November 2018, you can now pick up a POP! Vinyl doll of everybody’s favourite dragon. Anybody that has played the original series or remaster will know that Spyro doesn’t go on his adventures alone, and the POP! Vinyl figure is no different, so you’ll also find a mini Sparx the dragonfly doll alongside Spyro in the box.
It’s already sold out on Amazon and on GAME’s online store, though you may still be able to pick one up in-store for £19.99. Alternatively, you can pre- order the popular figure on Pop in a Box, with stock due for delivery in February 2019.
3. Reaper from Overwatch
Of course, a gaming-themed collection of POP! Vinyl figures wouldn’t be complete without at least one character from the hugely popular shooter, Overwatch. Who better to represent the team than one of the game’s most iconic (and frustrating) characters; Reaper.
Clad in his classic black body armour and wielding those deadly shotguns, the Reaper figurine is one of the more detailed Overwatch models available and will make sure that none of your other figurines step out of line.
4. Kratos from God of War
God of War is one of the best games available on the PS4 right now, as it steps away from the style of the older games and truly brings the series into the 21st century with a gorgeously-crafted third-person open-world game based around Norse mythology.
If you’ve not played it yet, we’d recommend picking it up from Amazon alongside this amazingly cute axe-wielding Kratos POP! Vinyl figure, available for slightly less than other figures in our chart.
What are you waiting for, boy?
5. Geralt from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Okay, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt isn’t necessarily a new game, but Geralt will hold a special place in the hearts of many gamers as the game is widely regarded as being one of the best in recent years.
The witch hunter for hire possesses superhuman abilities and is, of course, a master swordsman, so why wouldn’t you want the Geralt POP! Vinyl figure to take pride of place amongst your collection?
6. Aku Aku from Crash Bandicoot
Like the Spyro figurine, the Aku Aku POP! Vinyl figure is inspired by the recent success of the Crash Bandicoot remaster available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. But while many fans will opt for a Crash Bandicoot figurine, we prefer the look of Aku Aku, the spirit of a witch doctor that guides Crash and his friends as they defeat forces of evil.
Besides, you can’t tell us that Aku Aku’s OOGA BOOGA catchphrase isn’t the first thing you think of when you hear the words “Crash Bandicoot”.
7. Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
This one may not be related to the most recent game in the Tomb Raider series, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but the Lara Croft POP! Vinyl doll is essential for any gamer’s collection. The Tomb Raider series has appeared in various forms since the release of the first Tomb Raider game on PC, PlayStation and Sega Saturn in 1996, with the most recent reboot showing a darker, grittier side to the Tomb Raider’s infamous story.
All we need now is a pixelated Lara Croft POP! based on the old PS1 game model, and our lives will be complete.
