If you’ve been to any comic book store or toy shop in the past few years, you may have noticed that Funko’s Pop! Vinyl figures are slowly taking over the merchandise for every franchise under the sun. Superheroes, Star Wars characters, anime faves and even the cast of Breaking Bad can all be found in collectable series of the adorable, big-headed vinyl toys.
So isn’t it about time YouTubers got their own version? Tumblr artist dannegoma seems to think so. Specialising in Pop! Vinyl designs, dannegoma has been designing their own range of figures based on YouTube faves from the vlogging and gaming worlds.
A Pewdiepie Pop! Vinyl would be essential.

And of course, who wouldn’t want a Dan & Phil boxset?
Now we know what you’re thinking: WHERE CAN I BUY THESE BEAUTIES??? At the moment, sadly the answer is absolutely nowhere. BUT dannegoma and many other passionate YouTube fans want to make them a reality, and have founded a Change.org petition to pitch the designs to the CEO of Funko, Brian Mariotti. The call-to-action features a bunch more designs including Arin Hanson, JackSepticEye and Tomska:
With 3,500 names signing the petition already, some of the YouTubers designed have started to notice, and get behind the campaign – because who wouldn’t want an adorable vinyl version of themselves on their desk?
