Funko has thus far turned a handful of directors into POP! vinyl toys, including Paul Feig, James Gunn and Guillermo del Toro. Up next, modern horror master James Wan is getting his own POP! toy, as announced by Funko tonight!
The toy will be available exclusively at SDCC ’18, limited to 1,000 pieces.
James Wan is needless to say incredibly worthy of getting his own toy, as he’s proven to be a game-changing filmmaker in Hollywood. In the horror world, Wan has already changed the course of the genre not once but twice with Saw and then The Conjuring, and let’s not forget Dead Silence, Insidious and the revenge film Death Sentence.
Wan has to date launched THREE major horror franchises. How crazy is that?!
Outside of horror, Wan directed Furious 7 and the upcoming Aquaman, the latter looking primed and ready to help course-correct many of DC’s errors in recent years.
This year’s SDCC kicks off on Thursday, July 19.
