Mikey's Wish List for Sesame Street Funko Pop Figures!!!

Ever since Funko released their Labyrinth and Dark Crystal Funko Pop collections I've been completely geeking out over Funko's awesome Henson/Muppets related figures. Just this past week I managed to find the Funko Specialty Series Herry Monster figure at Ottawa Comiccon. Herry is the latest addition to this very addictive and fun series of Sesame Street characters! Here he is below, I'm still basking in his tiny "fuzzy and blue" awesomeness...

Thank you for making him Funko!!! He's awesome! :)

As I'm hoping that Funko will be making more classic Sesame Street characters I've posted my "wish list" below! There are so many memorable and classic characters to choose from, it seems that at least another five or ten Sesame Street Funko Pop figures isn't too unreasonable to wish for (especially with characters like Frazzle, Guy Smiley and the Two-Headed Monster!). However, I went all out and made a list of 40 more characters!!! Can't help it, I'm a Muppet freak! :)

Below is my Sesame Street Funko Pop wish list. Please feel free to post a comment below sharing which characters would be on your Sesame Funko Pop wish list. If we're lucky, maybe, just maybe, Funko might be convinced to offer Sesame fans more Pop figures! I hope so!!!

Enjoy! - Mikey :)

I doubt Funko would ever come close to making all 50 characters, but if you don't ask how can you ever know! :) There's optimism for you! With that in mind I would also add that with so many awesome characters to choose from, I don't think it's too malicious to hope that Funko does not make figures of Murray Monster or Stinky as in all honesty I find those characters are quite awful! In my view it would ruin the collection if figures of those characters were made! Though that's just my humble opinion.


Muppets Funko Pop figures:
Kermit the Frog from The Muppets series next to Mr.Snuffleupagus, Big Bird,
and the Count from the Sesame Street series!
