The Big Daddies of Bioshock and the word “cute” rarely go hand in hand... until now, apparently. Yes, not even the warped weirdness and Randian politics of the hit Bioshock video games. No gods or kings, only Pops.
Yes, the dearly-departed Irrational Games series is just the latest entity to be consumed by the Funko hive mind, which is churning out cutesy recreations of some of the characters from the games in return. Both the underwater world of Rapture and the cloud-bound city of Columbia from Bioshock Infinite are getting representation in the series—a deluxe 6-inch-scale Big Daddy and a creepy Little Sister representing Bioshock, seen above, while protagonists Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth represent Infinite:
There’ll also be an extra version of Booker that gives him Infinite’s skyhook tool instead of a shotgun, if you prefer your giant-headed vinyls to be a little less heavily armed.
In trade for a little sweat off your brow (or around $8-12, give or take), the Bioshock pops will be available in October.
