Recently I reported on this awesome Stranger Thing’s collectible pin I stumbled across while browsing social media and had to make mention of all of the amazing collectible merchandise that has been popping up all over the internet since the show made its debut capturing the attention of horror/scifi fans across the board. Well a few weeks later (and at least one more binge through the entire series) the momentum has not slowed down even slightly. One of the more recent things I have come across came from twitter user kabooki who happens to be the designer behind the Funko distributed Vinyl Idolz which you are probably familiar with if you frequent comic, toy or hobby shops. Well on August 12th, Kabooki teased us by tweeting a few photos of a new line of the miniaturized toys based off of the popular Netflix series which all of us over at Terror Time have not been able to get enough of.

Now don’t get too excited as there has been no mention of any official licensing or distribution from Funko yet and as of now we should not interpret these as anything more then a fan made prototype. However based off the huge fan reaction to the creator’s tweet, I would guess this was at least in the talking stages and I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if something a little more official is revealed over the next few months if not sooner. We will be following this very closely and hopefully an official announcement is made in the near future, in the mean time enjoy these Stranger Things Vinyl Idolz and follow Terror Time for more updates!
