Funko has finally released a wave of Funko Pop! vinyl figures from the popular Netflix series Squid Game.
Squid Game characters transformed into Pop! figures.
Squid Game is a South Korean survival drama television series created by Hwang Dong-hyuk for streaming service Netflix.
The series revolves around a contest in which 456 players, all deeply in debt, risk their lives to play a series of deadly children’s games for a chance to win a prize of ₩45.6 billion (South Korean won). The title of the series is taken from a Korean children’s game of the same name.
Hwang had come up with the idea of Squid Game based on his own economic struggles early in life, as well as class differences in South Korea and capitalism.
Squid Game was released worldwide in September 2021 and received critical acclaim and international attention. It is Netflix’s most-watched series and is the most-watched program in 94 countries. A second season of Squid Game has been announced and confirmed by Netflix.
Characters from Netflix’s Squid Game have been transformed into Funko Pop! vinyl figures and are part of the Pop! Television series. The first wave of Pop! Squid Game figures features five different players from the series dressed in the familiar green overalls.
In addition to the five different players, Funko has released Pop! vinyl figures of a masked worker, a masked manager (Walmart) and a masked soldier (Funko Shop).
The Funko Pop! Squid Game collection has an official release date in April/May 2022 and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Entertainment Earth.
