Nerd News: Jollibee & Hetty Spaghetti Funko Pops

This is going to be a double pack based on the advertising characters (so of course it’s going to be in the ad icons series) from Jollibee, which I’d never heard of, but it turns out that it’s the biggest fast food chain in the Philippines (although I never saw one when I was in the Philippines) and apparently is also growing internationally.

I know that pop figures can now be great advertising opportunities and I must say that if you check out the Funko website (where this image is taken from), you’ll see it clearer with this announcement than I’ve ever seen it with any other pop, with sentences such as:

Jollibee, the number 1 fastfood chain in the Philippines and emerging Global brand, is known for its great-tasting, high quality and affordable food products which include its superior-tasting Chickenjoy, mouth-watering Yumburger, and deliciously satisfying Jollibee Spaghetti.

It’s really the first time I find myself thinking that the editorial for the Funko blog post was written by someone else, which has taken a bit of the fun out of the item for me, but that’s just my opinion – really cool looking pops though!

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
