Stan Lee, now a comics industry legend in his 90s, just can't stop making cameos in the films based on the characters he wrote. It's almost become his trademark even more than writing dozens of issues of Fantastic Four and Amazing Spider-Man. He loves it. We love it. A cheer goes up whenever a theater full of people spot him. It's an everlasting part of his legacy at this point.
The good people at Funko (makers of all of those figures you just can't stop buying) recognize this, and to commemorate The Man's numerous cameo appearances, they just announced a new line of Stan Lee POP! figures based entirely on his cameos in various Marvel Studios films.
The retailer announced Wednesday that the three new figures will be available exclusively at Walmart beginning in November, which could make them perfect Christmas gifts if you time it right. The new POP! offerings are:
Stan as a World War II officer in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Stan as a museum security guard in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
And finally, Stan as a intergalactic playboy in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Right now, the release date for these gems is listed only as "November," but keep an eye on Funko's website for more details.
