Ultimate Funko Pop Directors Figures Gallery and ChecklistBrand: Funko Pop
Looking behind the lens, Funko Pop Directors covers various cinematic visionaries. While much of the vinyl world is geared to the end-product of movies and television, the Pop! directors set celebrates the subjects who helped put those franchises together.
Largely housed under the Pop! Movies brand, Funko Pop Director actually began with several limited-edition figures. This includes Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters (2016), with only 200 figures as part of his FunkoShop exclusive in 2016. That number gradually increased with several other modern directors, like James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), James Wan (Saw), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
Standard Funko Pop Directors releases came in 2018 with Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, and Guillermo del Toro, who is well-known for films such as Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, and The Shape of Water. Directing legend Alfred Hitchcock also joined the set in a black-and-white version. Hopefully, extra room is made for a Hitchcock figure in Funko Pop Icons, as well.
J.J. Abrams is another addition and it might be easier to just list what Abrams has not been involved in during his career. The acclaimed director and creator is best known for Alias, Lost, Star Trek (2009) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Although not a director, Jason Blum is an esteemed horror producer and founder of Blumhouse Productions. Notable films include Get Out, Insidious, Paranormal Activity and The Purge.
In addition, writer, producer and show creator Bryan Fuller appears with a Hannibal theme. He's also responsible for American Gods, Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies.
Starting with Ava DuVernay (A Wrinkle in Time) and Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman), the line is rebooted as its own standalone Funko Pop Directors set. The third spot in the official series goes to Spike Lee, well-known for his many films over the years.
