Alright, Funko, you’ve gone and done it again! The prospect of owning a Jeff Goldblum Pop! Vinyl is just too damn good to pass up, so thanks a freaking bunch! That is correct folks, Pop! Vinyl bobbleheads of your favorite characters from Independence Day and Independence Day: Resurgence are here!
As a kid, Independence Day was one of those movies that just impressed the hell out of me, because of the sheer spectacle of it. Sure we may have become pretty jaded in the years that have followed. Hell, we may even mock big budget “Disaster” films of a similar ilk and then write them off as “Michael Bay Explosion-fests.” However, Independence Day was something different. I still say that everything in that movie, up until after the first wave of alien attacks conclude, holds up to this day. Forget about the cheesiness of most of the acting, or many of the various plot holes and contrivances and just simply remember the awe inspiring feeling of those massive ships emerging out of the clouds. That is what will be putting my butt in the seat for Independence Day: Resurgence.
Take a gander at these Independence Day Funko Pop! Vinyls. They are as adorable as ever and are desperately looking for a home; I’m hoping you have some free shelf space available. The Pop! vinyls from the original Independence Day film include David Levinson, Steven Hiller, and an Alien. The “chase variant” of the Alien Pop! vinyl shows the head of the bio-armored suit, open and with the tiny alien pilot exposed inside. The Pop! vinyls from Independence Day: Resurgence include an older, wiser David Levinson; newcomer, Jake Morrison, and an Alien Warrior. Each figure stands at 3 and 3/4 inches tall and arrives in Funko’s signature packaging with window display. They are priced at $10.99 each, before shipping and handling, and can be purchased from our good friends at Entertainment Earth!
