Funko is celebrating The Godfather’s 50th anniversary with the release of The Godfather Funko Pop! VHS Cover figure.
The Godfather VHS cover transformed into Pop! vinyl.
Following the success of the popular Funko Pop! Albums series, the Pop! Comic Covers series and the recently launched Pop! Game Covers series, Funko has now applied the concept to iconic and memorable VHS movie covers.
The Funko Pop! VHS Covers series is a combination of a hard premium protector case, a Funko Pop! vinyl figure and of course artwork of the VHS movie cover. The end product is simply amazing and a must-have for every movie fan.
Young Funko collectors may not be familiar with the term VHS, but the VHS video tape was once the precursor to today’s DVD disc. And released in 1972, The Godfather premiered on VHS video tape in 1997.
The Godfather is a 1972 American crime film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, who co-wrote the screenplay with Mario Puzo, based on Puzo’s best-selling 1969 novel of the same name.
The classic gangster film stars big names from Hollywood, including Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Richard Castellano and Diane Keaton.
The Godfather is the first installment in the The Godfather trilogy, followed by sequels The Godfather Part II (1974) and The Godfather Part III (1990). The Godfather is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential films ever made, as well as a landmark of the gangster genre.
The story, spanning from 1945 to 1955, chronicles the Corleone family under patriarch Vito Corleone (Brando), focusing on the transformation of his youngest son, Michael Corleone (Pacino), from reluctant family outsider to ruthless mafia boss.
The VHS cover of The Godfather has been transformed into Funko Pop! vinyl and is part of the Pop! VHS Covers series.
