Precious Moments, those collectible figurines depicting angel-eyed children favored by grandmothers everywhere, has officially embraced pop culture in a big way.
While the iconic line of figurines has depicted existing properties in the past, including popular Disney characters, they've recently released a new line of officially licensed, hand-painted collectibles depicting Marty McFly from Back to the Future, as well as a quartet of characters from The Princess Bride.
Available exclusively from The Bradford Exchange, the Marty McFly character is striking his iconic watch-checking pose made famous in the film's poster. He even comes with the famed DeLorean. It's a limited-edition run, and will set you back a cool $99.99 (plus shipping and handling).
If you're looking for a more affordable option, then consider The Princess Bride figurines, including Westley, Princess Buttercup, Inigo Montoya, and, of course, Vizzini, the Sicilian Mastermind. It would've been inconceivable to leave him out. You can get all four for $39.99 (again, plus shipping and handling).
Worth noting that all four of The Princess Bride characters set are labeled as "Issue One," implying there may be another quartet of characters depending on how quickly these four start flying off the shelves.
Of course, if these start to take off, there's no shortage of pop-culture characters that could get the Precious Moments treatment. Stranger Things, the MCU, and Lord of the Rings all come to mind. In fact, our lives may be forever incomplete without a Precious Moments Gollum. Think about it, he's already got the right catchphrase, not to mention those big blue eyes. Seems like a no-brainer.
In the meantime, you can get a closer look at the figures currently available below.
