If you thought the A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic by Doogie Horner and JJ Harrison was the best thing Die Hard related memorabilia you could own, wait until you get a load of what Funko has in store this October.
Hitting shelves just in time for the 30th Anniversary of the original film (sure there’ll be a number of special anniversary screenings around the country like all day Die Hard movie marathon at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers in December) everyone’s favorite NYPD detective is back and bringing the other fan favorite characters from the film with him. Naturally, the late/great Alan Rickman’s character Hans Gruber gets not only a standard Funko vinyl figure but also a special GameStop exclusive variant.
Without a doubt, Reginald VelJohnson as Al Powell carrying pile of Twinkies has to got to be on your X-Mas list. I think Funko should just make line of Reginald VelJohnson vinyl figures as all the various cop characters he’s played over the years like Carl Winslow from Family Matters and my personal favorite “Jail Guard” from Ghostbusters.
Any other Die Hard characters you want to see Funko produce in the near future?
You can finally watch your favorite Christmas movie with the toughest NYPD detective ever to foil an elaborate German terrorist plot. The John McClane Pop! looks somewhat the worse for wear with blood on his hand and shirt, but that won’t stop him from stopping mastermind Hans Gruber whose Pop! is in surprising good condition considering everything that goes down that fateful Christmas Eve. Tony Vreskiv looks downright festive wearing a Santa hat and more than a little blood. Sergeant Al Powell has his priorities well in order with a handful of Twinkies.
Hans Gruber wearing a dapper suit is available as a GameStop exclusive.
