As the whole world waits for opening weekend of the modern version of Stephen King’s hit horror story known as It which started as a television film adaptation in the early 90’s and became a pop culture legend, memoribilia collectors should not be surprised to know that the film’s villain that surely inspired many cases of clown phobia, Pennywise, has been added to the list of Pop! figures. Some are already available for purchase while some will arrive on shelves closer to the film’s opening weekend.
The first in the series of Pennywise Pop!s is currently available for purchase and contains two different color schemes. In both forms Pennywise is holding a paper boat, but toy collectors might be interested to know that one in the sepia color scheme has a rarity ratio of 1-6 so be on the look out for this guy!
There are two other figures that will be exclusive to certain stores. The first will be available at Walmart, and features our villain in a wig.
However, there is another form Pennywise will take which will be exclusive to Hot Topic showing the demonic killer clown holding the red balloon surely in preparation to lure some poor child for all manner of nefarious reasons. This particular likeness will be available early September.
This new line is a perfect hommage to a classic Stephen King bad guy as it is both terrifying and adorable to the eye. It is true that the film is still over a month away, but until then we can enjoy the miniature version!
