DC has started pulling out all the stops in regards to Wonder Woman merchandise, including a line of movie specific Funko POPs. That's in addition to the previous versions available in their DC-centric lines.
Still, there's plenty of additional history and lore to be mined for more Wonder Woman redesigns and supporting characters. It wouldn't hurt from a sales perspective either, as after the film hits theaters fans old and new will be looking for things to buy for their collections.
Funko's been great before about offering multiple versions of popular characters and manages to throw a few characters in the mix that you never thought you'd see in toy form, let alone as a POP. This list encompasses comics, television, and movies, so odds are there is something here you will want to get your hands on. Without further ado, here are the 5 Wonder Woman POPS that fans still want to see!
Kicking off the list is one of Diana's main adversaries, the God of War Ares. Ares will figure prominently into the Wonder Woman film, though his design for the movie has yet to be revealed. It will likely be similar to his look in the books though, which depicts him with a Spartan-like helmet and greek or roman inspired armor. In the
In the past, he's looked more human, so having a non-helmeted variation would be nice. Perhaps it could display a bit of a crazed expression, depicting him after absorbing a substantial amount of anger and hatred from mankind's warmongering. Throw in a few swords and shields laying at his base and you have something every toy fan would want, but the price would probably have to be a bit higher to justify all that.
Even in a simpler form, having an Ares in the collection would delight more than a few fans.
While Ares is one of her more notable enemies, the witch Circe isn't very far behind. Wonder Woman has had constant struggles with the sorcerer over the years, but often times she's depicted in more traditional fantasy based outfits.
In Rebirth the witch has received a delightful modern makeover that is much simpler but also more effective. Why not use this as an opportunity to introduce the popular villain to the POP line? All 10 of those Wonder Women will need someone to fight right?
This version of Circe plays a big part in the recent Godwatch storyline seen in DC's Wonder Woman Rebirth, and you find the description below. Wonder Woman #20 is written by Greg Rucka with art by Bilquis Evely and Romulo Fajardo, Jr.

Wonder Woman #600
J Michael Straczynski's run on Wonder Woman is a bit divisive amongst fans, but as time has passed the reception to Jim Lee's redesigned costume for the book has warmed.
The character got black pants, gold gauntlets, and a black and red jacket, a bigger departure from the classic look. It definitely has its fans though and would look amazing in POP form.
You can find the description for Wonder Woman #600 below, which helped kick off his run on the book and the new costume design.
You're invited to the gala celebration featuring WONDER WOMAN talent from the past and present to commemorate this landmark issue!

Michael Straczynski (SUPERMAN, BRAVE AND THE BOLD, Amazing Spider-Man) provides a story of his own!prevnext
The Kithotaur Ferdinand isn't the most well-known character in the Wonder Woman mythos, but he's one of the most delightful and deserves to be represented in Funko form.
Ferdinand was the chef to Diana during her ambassador days, but after those were over departed her company and went out on his own. Time doesn't dull one's effect on someone though, and he recently was called back in to help restore Diana's sanity. To celebrate, fans need a super sized 6' POP (he is a Kithotaur after all) to stand alongside Diana.
This version of Ferdinand plays a big part in the recent "Truth" storyline seen in DC's Wonder Woman Rebirth, and you can find the description below. Wonder Woman #20 is written by Greg Rucka with art by Liam Sharp and Laura Martin.
“The Truth” part three! Diana, Steve and Etta come face-to-face with their newest foes—the deadly group known as Poison! But what do they have to do with the plot to unravel Wonder Woman’s life?prevnext
If you're going to have a Wonder Woman themed set, you have to have a version dedicated to the stunning Lynda Carter portrayal. Carter is the de-facto Wonder Woman for many even all these years later, and it is easy to see why.
Perhaps there could be two versions of the Lynda Carter POP. One would be the standard versions, with her trademark hands on her hips pose. The second version would be the one seen in promotional photos (like the one below) and would feature her holding the American flag styled cape.
Plenty of collectors out there would love to add either one to their Funko shelves.prevnext
