Adria Picks Ten: Movies/Shows I'd Like to See as Pop Figurines.

Okay so I’m a compulsive list maker. I have lists for EVERYTHING all over the place. I have music playlists on my phone, iPod, and Kindle which I have HANDWRITTEN in two journals and typed out on virtual notepads on said devices. Heck some of my lists are funny or straight up weird so I thought Why not share them?. Maybe they’ll be good for a laugh or maybe you’ll want to start up your own list of lists. This is just in good fun really, well, for me it’s more like I need a place to put all these lists that drive everyone nuts around here.

Today’s List: Ten Movies/TV Shows I’d Like to See as Pop Figurines.

I’m sure you’ve seen them at some point, heck you might even have some of them. I’m talking about Funko Pops! Those neat figurines from popular shows and movies that seem to be the hot new thing right now. I LOVE those! Not only do they have what’s hot now like Marvel Movies and Game of Thrones but also figurines from past popular shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer (OMG!). There’s something for everyone honestly. I have a few but yeah it can get to be an expensive hobby if you’re buying more than one at the same time. They range in prices from $10 to $30 depending on who or what it is.

I’m lucky though, I’ve stumbled across a local shop called Black Sheep Comics that is amazing! It’s a very small shop but it’s run by two women which I love because I’ve gone to other local and even big name stores (Looking at you Think Geek) where the male employees can be a bit condescending to females looking to score some comic book stuff. Especially if you’re a newbie like me and have questions. Ugh, stupid jerks. Anyway I love this little store not just because it’s run by women but because they have LAYAWAY!!! This makes it so much easier for me to get those little boogers I want. Plus these lovely ladies keep a look out for the ones I can’t find or that are hard to get.

Anyway, I love the current stuff that Funko has BUT there are 10 shows/movies I’d REALLY want to see turned into Pops. And I’m ready to get VERY specific about them too.

Starting with:

Stargate SG-1. I know everyone is on the Jason Momoa train right now so the majority of people would probably vote for the spin off Stargate: Atlantis which would be cool BUT I gotta vote for the original because it was such an amazing show and none of the ones that came after compared. I’d want Pops of SG-1 in their green gate traveling uniforms, complete with Zat guns for sure but to be absolutely clear I want ALL the members of SG-1 done. That means Sam, Jack, Daniel, Teal’c (Original members), AND Cam and Vala because I love them too. I think some awesome variations would be Sam, Jack, and Cam in their blue uniforms and Teal’c in his Jaffa uniform. And they’d HAVE to make one of the Stargate itself. I’d totally buy all of them. Of course the show also had some really great secondary/guest characters that I’d love too. Apophis, Ba’al, General Hammond, General Landry, Adria, Janet Fraser.

My nerd is showing isn’t it?

M*A*S*H. Again, ALL the characters should have their own Pops but I’d personally love to see a focus on Klinger and his most famous outfits, including the Gone with the Wind dress he wore in the episode Major Ego. You can see a list of his greatest outfits here.

This series would include quite a few characters, there’s Hawkeye, Trapper John, Henry Blake, Frank Burns, Margaret Houlihan, Radar (with his Teddy Bear), Colonel Potter, Klinger, Charles Winchester, Father Mulcahy, BJ Hunnicut, Sidney Freedman, and even Colonel Flagg. Though I’d also like to see the makeshift still that Hawkeye had in his tent that he shared with Trapper and Frank and then later with BJ and Charles.

Roswell. This one wouldn’t be too much since the principal cast was small. Max, Liz, Michael, Maria, Isabel, Alex, Tess, and Kyle. For sure I’d need to see Liz and Maria in their Crashdown uniforms along with their prom dresses. Oh and pops of the cast from the episode Summer of ‘47. Not to be forgotten would have to be Liz in her wedding dress from the final episode.

The Mummy/The Mummy Returns. This one is pretty self explanatory. I just want some pops of Evie because she's one of my absolute favorite heroines ever! A super smart, tough girl librarian? Yes please! I'd love for pops to be made of her in her librarian outfit, the black dessert outfit, and the outfits from the second film, including her as an Egyptian princess. Can't you just picture them???

The Nanny. I've loved this show for years and it's a well known one too. Fran's outfits are as memorable as they are loud, and that hair! OMG those pops would be to die for! Of course Niles and CeCe would just have to come as a pack. I would need grandma Yetta too. And Sylvia. Those women were a hoot!

Justice League Unlimited. I know there are DC pops out there already BUT JLU is one of the best animated series ever and I just want a pop of Shayera Hol. I know that there's a Hawkgirl one but in JLU she no longer has her mask on and she's one of my cartoon girl crushes. I have a mad love for the JLU versions of Huntress, Vixen, and Black Canary too so those would be wicked cool.

Starsky and Hutch. This is would mostly be for my mom because she was and still is a huge fan of the series. Aside from the titular characters, there would HAVE to be a pop of the car because it's one of the most famous cars ever.

Frasier. Hmm, which episodes would I pick? I think for sure the pilot episode should be made, all of the characters, including Eddie the dog would make awesome additions for any fan's collection.

Reba. Oh how I miss this show! I would love pops from the episode where Barbara Jean dyes and cuts her hair exactly like Reba's which causes Reba to freak out. Oh and the episode where the girls take a self defense class and it ends with Reba and Barbara Jean beating each other up. The pageant episode was another great one too. But honestly I would take any of them.

Quantum Leap. Let me be more specific, the Christmas episode called "It's a Wonderful Leap" is my mom's favorite and having pops of Sam, Al, and Angelita the Angel would be great. Any pops after that would be icing on the cake.

You can see what Funko has to offer by visiting their website, or following them on Instagram.

Do you collect Pops? What would YOU like to see turned into one?
