Believe in 'American Gods' Funko Pop Figures


American Gods, based on Neil Gaiman's 2001 bestselling book, has been a successful show for Starz. However, we won't see the highly anticipated second season until 2019. In the meantime, you can worship these new Funko Pop figures based on the show to ensure that they remain relevant in a world filled with New Gods - mostly on Netflix.

The first wave of figures in Funko's American Gods lineup are available to pre-order via the links below with shipping slated for August.

American Gods Mr. Wednesday Pop! Vinyl Figure #680
American Gods Mad Sweeny Pop! Vinyl Figure #681
American Gods Shadow Moon Pop! Vinyl Figure #678
American Gods Lauren Moon Pop! Vinyl Figure #679 (Chase)

If you are unfamiliar with American Gods, you have plenty of time to read the book or catch up on the show before the new season begins. Alternatively, you could check out the synopsis below.

"When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday's bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It's a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they've lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it."
