If you’re a wrestling fan but watch more than just WWE, you probably never thought you’d see the day where non-WWE wrestlers would become Funko Pop figures. Well, that day has surprisingly come as Funko announced three New Japan Pro Wrestling Pops, all three of which are Bullet Club members.
This new batch of vinyl figures is only a set of four, but the wrestlers who were made into Pops are totally deserving of it. Both Kenny Omega and “The American Nightmare” Cody are getting single packs, while The Young Bucks–Matt and Nick Jackson–will be a two pack.
All three packs will debut in stores in August. Hopefully, Funko Pop will dive into other promotions in the future, like Ring of Honor, Lucha Underground, or Impact. Personally, I would love to see Dalton Castle–with the Boys–and Jay Lethal during his Black Machismo run in TNA. Pricing wasn’t revealed in the press release from Funko, but more than likely, the single packs will cost around $10 with the Young Bucks two-pack for $20.
NJPW currently airs on AXS TV, and all four of these wrestlers appeared on the Wrestle Kingdom 12 show on January 4 earlier this year, New Japan’s biggest show of the year, held at the Tokyo Dome. While Funko and NJPW may not be able to expand to past Bullet Club members, since AJ Styles, Adam Cole, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, and Finn Balor are all now in WWE, there’s still Marty Scurll, Hangman Page, and Fale to possibly look forward to in the future.
