Our first look at the upcoming James Bond Funko Pop toys has been revealed. One of the most iconic movie characters of all time will be getting his own vinyl figures, as well as, some of the most memorable villains that he has faced throughout the years.
The American company that manufactures licensed pop culture toys has previously confirmed that 007 is getting its own line of Funko Pop figures at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The new set of collectibles will come with four different iterations of Bond, two of which people can get their hands on anywhere that is selling Funko, while the other two will be exclusive to some merchants that the makers have partnered up with. But before they even become available, we now have an idea how they would look like thanks to the official sneak peek release which will only help us determine which ones we would like to nab.
Funko's official website has posted the set of photos which includes features two different versions of MI6 agent James Bond from the films Goldfinger (played by Sean Connery) and The Spy Who Loved Me (played by Roger Moore). The former sees a Connery-looking (complete with his signature mole) donning a sleek black tuxedo, joining him is the iconic “Golden Girl” from the same movie. The latter, on the other hand, resembles Moore wearing an immaculate white ensemble. Meanwhile, the other two versions will be available at select physical stores with Target carrying the Dr. No version of Connery's 007 wearing a black tuxedo and Barnes and Noble offering up the Moore's Octopussy version of the spy.

The different Pop versions of the suave spy will come alongside a string of some of his most notable adversaries including You Only Live Twice villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, looking all sorts of villainy with his facial scar and accompanied by his white cat. Other antagonists getting their own bobbleheads are Oddjob with his killer hat, and Jaws with his, well, jaws.
Since this is dubbed as the first release from the James Bond Funko Pop line, we can expect that more iteration will soon roll-out as it seems a little bit odd not having one dedicated to the current and the fan-favorite version of the character, Daniel Craig - more so when the actor is slated to star in the upcoming 25th film from the long-running franchise. The project, which has yet to get an official title, as well as director, will be a collaboration between Eon Productions and MGM and currently has a release date scheduled for 2019.
