With The Last of Us 2 delayed until May 2020, it seems as though Ellie will be getting her own Funko Pop prior to its release. There’s been no official confirmation so far, but a new Instagram post (via a reputable source) seems to point towards its existence.
Funko Pops have been a staple within the video games scene as of late. The likes of Cyberpunk 2077 and Fortnite have latched onto the idea of having mini-figures. Now, it appears as though Naughty Dog will soon follow suit with The Last of Us’ Ellie.
Is The Last of Us’ Ellie getting a Funko Pop?
Instagram account Dis.Pops, a reliable source for upcoming Funko Pops, claims a bunch of new ones are on the horizon, including The Last of Us’ Ellie. You’ll notice the figure referenced within the right-hand side of the image, but there’s no sign on when it’ll be releasing.
There’s been no comment on the matter from either Funko Pops or Naughty Dog, but assuming it is indeed still coming, you can expect the mini-figure to launch before May 29th – which is when The Last of Us Part 2 comes out.
Is Joel getting a Funko Pop too?
You’re probably already wondering why there’s no word on a Funko Pop for Joel. Of course, Ellie is the protagonist of the series – but Joel is just as important.
Just because Joel wasn’t mentioned on the list, that still doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t be getting one anytime soon. While there’s obviously been no confirmation as of yet, no official artwork or concepts of their Funko Pops have emerged.
However, one fan has created their own custom Funko Pop of both Joel and Ellie. Indeed, if these look anything like the suppose official ones, we could be in for an exciting few months.
We’ll update you if Naughty Dog or Funko Pops share any official information on the matter, but in the meantime, let’s focus on the launch of The Last of Us 2.
