The R-rated reboot of Stephen King’s IT looks terrifying. Bill Skarsgård’s Pennywise is the creepiest of all creepy clowns. So I’ll tell you right now - I’ll be dammed before I put a little version of IT in the same place I sleep at night.
Call me paranoid, but I’m convinced that these mass produced Funko Pop figures will work together to bring down mankind. What if they shape shift into cute Pop figures from other fandoms? Worse yet - what if they manipulate the millions of other Pop figures out there to do their murderous bidding? We would all be doomed.
If you have the guts, you can pre-order the Pennywise (with boat) Pop figure now (a sepia chase version of Pennywise is a 1-in-6 rarity). A version of Pennywise with a wig is coming to Walmart later this summer, and Pennywise with a red balloon will hit Hot Topic in September. Check out the gallery to take a look at all of the upcoming figures.
New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT, directed by Andrés Muschietti (Mama), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids is faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
