Among Funko’s handful of horror-related announcements today at the 2019 London Toy Fair is a new Pop! vinyl collectible of filmmaker J.J. Abrams. While best known as a sci-fi guy from his work on both the Star Wars sequels and the Star Trek reboots, Abrams actually stared out doing sound on Troma’s Nightbeast and has recently hit the horror genre hard by executive producing Overlord and Hulu’s Castle Rock.
The product number was not revealed, and we’re also not sure if Abrams will land in Funko’s Movies or Television line of Pop! vinyl collectibles, though either way he’ll appear under the “Directors” brand along with Vince Gilligan, The Duffer Bros., Alfred Hitchcock, James Wan, and Guillermo del Toro. Once again, the only release given was “coming soon”.
This year’s London Toy Fair began today and runs through this Thursday at London’s Olympia exhibition center. We already reported on two of Funko’s announcements from the show, and more are coming, so stay tuned!
