Squid Game took over seemingly everyone’s screens as they binged the addictive South Korean series. It’s obvious they have a hit on their hands and they’re giving fans what they want.

Yes, Funko Pop vinyl figures are still incredibly popular. Die-hard Funko Pop collectors and fans of Squid Game alike will raid those online shops for these bad boys.

Featuring 5 characters from the series, including… no spoilers … the one responsible for everything, this series also includes a guard. Of course, it’s the guard with a circle, so it’s a worker. You’ll have to get to Walmart and Funko’s online store to snag the higher-up guards. Yes, the guards in Squid Game are just as interesting as the players in the game.

We have to wonder why they neglected to make a Front Man Pop. That black mask would look sick in Funko form. Then again, there are countless conventions and other exclusive editions to come if they snagged the license to the hit Netflix series. We will likely see Front Man eventually, and scalpers will pounce on him like he is fresh meat at Jurassic Park.


You can check out links below to get your eyes on this new Funko Pops. It’s hard to resist picking up a few of them, because it makes the nightmarish and beatiful series even cuter than it somehow already was.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
