New ‘IT’ Pennywise Pop! Variant

The re-imagining of Stephen King’s classic novel IT took the box office by storm and terrorized a new generation of fans over the summer of 2017; since its releases, popular collectibles company Funko has bombarded the market with various forms of Pennywise.  Everyone’s favorite dancing clown is receiving yet another variant.

This new Pop! is a take on the original release of the blue-eyed Pennywise holding Georgie’s iconic boat, but this time his eyes are yellow. Like the other variants, it will stand approximately 3 3/4 inches tall. It is set for a January 24th release and will be extremely limited. The Chase variant of this particular Pop! has been vaulted, so if you order from any sites that give you a chance of receiving the Chase version, it is unlikely that you will.

Some sites are offering a pre-order, like Pop in a Box, but sites like Amazon have yet to list the product. With the run being so limited, pre-order may be the only way to get it without paying inflated eBay prices.

“They float, Georgie, and when you’re down here with me, you’ll float, too”
