Getting your hands on this set will be tricky.
We’re about to be very, very jealous of some folks attending this year’s New York Comic Con.
Funko is letting fans get their paws on this brand-new set of Comic Con exclusive Golden Girls ReAction Figures featuring our beloved Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia. Unfortunately, the lottery for access to Funko’s Comic Con booth has already closed, and those who have gotten access have a strict one-item-per-ticket limit.
We may just have to admire this set from afar.
If there is an, ahem, golden lining to the news, it’s that in February Funko revealed it was producing a Pops set of Golden Girls figures, and they’re available right now—no waiting or travel required.
Funko was taken off-guard by the response to its first round of Golden Girls figures. Director of Marketing Mark Robben told ABC News, “We almost weren’t prepared for the excitement. We created these as a passion project initially, and were blown away when it started trending on social media.”
Does that mean Funko could consider a larger release for the ReAction Figures? Pretty please? We’d thank you for being a friend, Funko.
