Last month, Funko and Entertainment Earth launched an exclusive Xenomorph Pop figure in the 8-bit lineup in celebration of Alien Day. It has been selling like crazy in pre-order, but now it's in stock and ready to ship. How long that will last is anyone's guess, so secure one for your collection right here while you can.
The interesting thing about this particular figure is that it’s based on the color scheme of the Alien 3 video game that was released for the Sega Genesis in 1992 in support of the film of the same name. The loading screen pictured above illustrates that, and will likely stir up some memories for anyone who played this game back in the day.
This figure is variant of the standard 8-bit Alien Funko Pop and the blood splattered Previews Exclusive versions. It’s kind of an odd variant at that, since Alien 3 strikes me as kind of obscure as far as nostalgic games for the Sega Genesis go. Still, the quirkiness of the figure makes for an interesting collectible.
Speaking of interesting Funko Pop figures, Funko is celebrating their 20th anniversary with a brand new Pop version of Bob's Big Boy - the subject of the very first bobblehead that the company ever produced.
You can grab the new Bob’s Big Boy Bob Pop figure complete with 20th anniversary packaging right here while supplies last. It’s set to ship out in September 2018, and collectors have been scooping it up big time. The only other Pop version of Bob's Big Boy that Funko has released was a 2016 SDCC exclusive. These days, that figure can fetch well over $1000.
