Smallville, the TV show that depicted the Man of Steel before he donned his suit and cape, had a 10 year run that ended in 2011. It was a nice surprise when Funko announced in 2018 that they would release a small list of Smallville Funko Pops, considering how long the series had been off the air for.
There are currently only 5 Smallville Pop Vinyls to chose from making this one of the smallest Funko Blog posts we’ve done. What seems apparent is that they’ve gone for characters from the final season of Smallville.
You have Lex Luthor in his white suite, Lois in her classic reporter outfit, Green Arrow in his combat gear and Clark Kent in his Daily Planet attire and wearing the Superman outfit, which he only puts on in the last few minutes of the show. The other Pop is the young CK bearing the S for the highschool Scarecrow tradition, which is the box art for the first Season.
Hopefully in time there will be more releases of Smallville Pop Vinyls, as Funko has a large roster of characters to chose from the series. Lana Lang, Chloe, Pete, Martha and Jonathan Kent, Lionel Luthor, Kara (Supergirl) are all still missing. Also variations of the current figures they have, such as the Blur and Clark Kent’s signature primary colour ensemble.
The show is quite old now (it finished in 2011), so perhaps there is not much hurry or demand to do a second wave of Smallville Pops, but fingers crossed.
Check out out Funko Blog below for the 5 Pops from the awesome show. Also, they’re still at a great price.
