Funko Pop! Movies Little Shop of Horrors
Recently Funko announced some new Pop! figures that will be coming in August 2018 and I’m very excited about them. Next month we will be getting Funko Pop! Movies Little Shop of Horrors figures and they look amazing. Especially the Baby Audrey II. That one looks adorable.
Little Shop of Horrors 1986
The 1986 film version of Little Shop of Horrors was adapted from the off-Broadway musical by the same name. The 1986 film version was turned into a rock musical comedy horror that has become somewhat of a cult classic now. The film stared Rick Moranis as Seymour Krelborn, a down on his luck flower shop worker. Ellen Greene as Audrey, Seymour’s co-worker and his love interest. And Steve Martin as Orin Scrivello, DDS, Audrey’s sadistic and abusive dentist boyfriend.
Seymour and Audrey work in a flower shop in “Skid Row”. The owner is ready to close the store before Seymour brings in a strange plant he bought at a Chinese shop during a solar eclipse. He named the plant Audrey II after his co-worker Audrey. The plant brings in new customers and the store is doing well. One day Audrey II appears to be dying and Seymour accidentally pricks his finger and the blood excites the plant. Seymour reluctantly gives the plant some of his blood and Audrey II comes alive, but that is the only food the plant wants now.
Audrey II continues to grow and grow but its appetite gets larger and larger. Soon Seymour’s blood is not enough for the plant and it needs more to keep it alive. Audrey II convinces Seymour to kill for him and bring him more food. Seymour is unable to kill Orin on his own but does not help him when his nitrous mask gets stuck on him. Seymour ends up feeding parts of Orin to Audrey II and the shop owner witnesses it.
In the end, Audrey II ends up being from outer space and has come to Earth to take it over. Seymour ends up destroying Audrey II and saving the planet from a plant take over.
The Pop! Figures
Funko will be releasing six different Pop! figures for the Little Shop of Horrors series. Three of these figures will be variations of Audrey II. One will be a grown up large Audrey II in a large flower pot. Another will be a Chase version of that same Audrey II. The difference for the Chase version is that Audrey II has some blood splatter and dripping around the mouth. And the third version will be a Baby Audrey II. The baby version does not have tentacles like the other two and is in a small coffee tin instead of a flower pot. Baby Audrey II will also be a Target exclusive Funko Pop! figure.
The three other Pop! figures will be human characters from the movie. One will be Seymour Krelborn who is holding a small Audrey II in a flower pot. Another will be Audrey Fulquard in a leopard print dress. And finally, Orin Scrivello, DDS, complete with some dentist tools.
Coming In August
I’m very excited for these Pop! figures to come out. I loved this movie when I was younger. I’m not sure how many times I watched it, but it was many times. I loved the songs in this version also. Especially “Dentist!” song by Steve Martin’s character.
I will definitely be picking up a couple of these Pop! figures. If not all of them.
What one or ones are you most interested in? Or have to have.
