Your favorite “Squid Game” characters are being turned into vinyl figurines for the latest edition of Funko Pop! collectibles, which includes Players 456, 218, 001, 067, 199, and the masked guards.
“Squid Game” Funko Pop! Figurines are available for pre-order via Amazon, Walmart, Gamestop, and the Netflix shop. Although these cool collectibles won’t be hitting shelves until next year, it’s best to pre-order them early, just in case they sell out.
In the South Korean series, created by Hwang Dong-hyuk, hundreds of financially strapped adults agree to compete in a series of children’s games for money. “Squid Game” has been streamed in more than 111 million households since debuting on Netflix in September, and its popularity has extended beyond the series and into cosplay. “Squid Game” track suits are among the most popular Halloween costumes for 2021 (white Vans like the ones from the show are enjoying a major sales spike), and fans can now add vinyl figurines to the growing list of merchandise to collect.
Deciding on the right vinyl figurine depends on your favorite character, and whether you want to purchase them separately or collect them all. “Squid Game” Funko Pop! collectible figurines retail for $10.99 to $11.99 each (depending on where you get them from). The figures stand 4.25″ tall, and, like other Funko Pop! designs, they usually come in a window box so you can easily display them.
To save you the time of searching the web, we rounded up a handful of the “Squid Game” vinyl figures that you can pre-order right now.
Gi-hun (Player 456) is the protagonists of the series, and polarizing in his own right. If you’re building a collection of “Squid Game” figurines, the main character is a good place to start.
Like all of the characters in “Squid Game,” Kang Sae-Byeok’s (Player 067) backstory is layered and relatable. She initially joins the Squid Game in hopes of earning money to help her mother and brother but, as the other players find out, she’s both scrappy and cunning, making her a fierce competitor.
Ali Abudl (Player 199), a Pakistani immigrant who entered the Squid Game to make money to take care of his wife and young son, might be the most beloved and truly wholesome character in the series. If you’re a fan of Ali, then you can’t pass up this adorable statuette.
Oh Il-Nam (Player 001) knows how to play the game better than his competitors think. Without giving too much of the story away, let’s just say that the elderly character is more strategic than he appears.
In “Squid Game,” the masked soldiers keep an eye on all of the competitors — and each other. The masked soldier vinyl figurine featured above is only available with the circle mask design, but the triangle mask soldier will likely be sold separately as well. For now, you can choose between the circle mask soldier or purchase a set of four figurines (pictured below) sold exclusively at Walmart.
This four-piece set sold exclusively at Walmart includes both masked workers as well as Ali and Cho Sang Woo (218). If you’re only interested in collecting vinyl figurines of “Squid Game” players, pre-order the Funko Pop! “Squid Game” trio set, which comes with mini-figures of Gi-hun, Il-nam, and Sae-Byeok.
