Hit Musical Hamilton Getting The Funko Pop Treatment

Hamilton fans can be in the room where it happened with their very own Funko Pops featuring most of the cast from hit Broadway show. It’s been almost a year since the show that inspired and captivated audiences made its film debut on Disney+. The film version actually was nominated for two Golden Globes.

Now fans can display their love for the show with the brand new line of figures and keychains launching in July through Walmart.com and Entertainmentearth.com.

So just what characters are getting the Funko treatment? According to Entertainment Weekly who exclusively revealed the first look at them, we are getting two versions of Alexander Hamilton (one in his iconic burgundy coat and a Walmart.com blue exclusive version), Aaron Burr, The Schulyer Sisters (Angelica, Eliza, Peggy), and George Washington.

Each figure will sell for $10.99 USD and the keychain will be $4.99 USD. These seem to be online exclusives at the moment and will no doubt sell out extremely fast like tickets for the show did. Pre-orders are open now so get your Hamilton collection reserved or regret it. Perhaps later on these will be made available in select stores much like the new Pokemon Funko Pops. Funko Virtual Con is happening next week, so fans of the adorable figures can grab some more exclusives soon before the Hamilton ones release.

Speaking of Broadway-inspired Funko Pop lines could we see even more released beyond Hamilton? Musical fans no doubt would scoop them up in a heartbeat if Funko made them available. We have movies, cartoons, Disney WWE, and more so why not?

Lauren Winarski, senior manager of licensing at Funko further confirms how great it is to see Broadway and Funko team-up.

“It is extremely rare to see American history have an impact on today’s pop culture the way Hamilton has. To not only celebrate that achievement but also introduce Funko to a Broadway audience is the kind of partnership we love.”

If you are missing out on watching a live performance, you can always head online to Broadway HD which is like Netflix but for theater fans. You catch favorites such as Cats, Kinky Boots, and more.

Whatever is next for Funko, one thing is for sure, it’s not going anywhere. These Hamilton Funko pops are so eerily accurate it will be like having a piece of the show right in your own home.
