Could the Wave 2 FRIENDS Pop! Vinyls Be Any Cooler?!

friends large

The first wave of FRIENDS Pop! Vinyls released back in 2016 remain a collectors favorite even though the wave has now been vaulted and prices on the secondary market have sky rocketed (around the $90 to $110 price point).

The original character releases were more character specific than episodic specific with Monica in her chef whites, Ross with pet monkey Marcel, Joey and Chandler with ‘chick’ and ‘duck’, Rachel in her Central Perk uniform and Phoebe with her guitar.

That’s all about to change with the recently revealed wave 2 of the FRIENDS Pop! Vinyls which are heavily episodic specific and perfectly iconic for each character.

First up in Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) from the season 10 episode 11 titled “The One Where the Stripper Cries” which offers an 80’s college-era flash back with Chandler rocking a Flock of Seagulls inspired hairstyle.

 

Next in the line, and from the same episode, is Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) also in flashback form with his tight perm and matching mustache holding an episodically identical pamphlet for their band “Way, no Way!”

 

Also from this very same episode AND flashback is the third in the line, Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) rocking high hair, garish outfit and plastic red drinking cup.

Moving onto a new episode is the next release, Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) from season 3 episode 2 (and one of my personal favorite episodes) “The One Where No One is Ready” where Joey, frustrated with Chandler’s antics, wears ALL of Chandlers clothing.

Season 9, Episode 24 “The One in Barbados: Part 2” get’s the Monica Geller (Courteney Cox) treatment with Monica’s god-awful braids, gotten in an attempt to deal with the high humidity in…well Barbados.

Last up is Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) sporting her Supergirl outfit from Season 8, episode 6 titled “The One With the Halloween Party” where Phoebe causes the break-up of her twin sister Ursula’s engagement to Eric played by Sean Penn.

 

These new wave of pops are pretty epic with incredible detail for the hardcore FRIENDS fans though the only thing I can pick up on is with Monica’s hairstyle which is evened off at one length versus her varying braid length as seen in the episode.

Are these going to be on your must-get list?  Sound off in the comments section!

PS – I’m totally devastated we still haven’t got a Fat Monica Pop! Vinyl who I think was much more iconic and memorable than corn-row Monica!

Orange is the New Black and the New Pop! Vinyl.

I do love me some Pop! Vinyl figures.  While my collection is small (Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon and Injured Daryl Dixon – AHS Coven’s Fiona Goode – Game of Thrones Brienne of Tarth and Orphan Black’s Alison Hendrix) there’s always room to add more and now, some of our favorite Litchfield inmates and prison guards are coming our way in mini vinyl form thanks to the highly popular Pop! Television series by Funko.

That’s right, mini versions of Piper (Taylor Schilling), Alex (Laura Prepon), Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba), Red (Kate Mulgrew) and Pornstache (Pablo Schreiber) are currently up for pre-order are and slated for a July 2015 release, which oddly enough, misses the season 3 premiere of the show.

I’m still waiting for my very own Pennsatucky with tinsel halo, bad teeth and wooden cross Pop!

Want your very own Alex or Piper?  Check out the pre-order links below from Entertainment Earth by clicking on each of the images!
