Made in collaboration with Mondo, The Art of Jock delves into the prolific artist’s catalog, showcasing not only the best of his sketches and published images but also personal notes from Jock himself that provide insight into the inner workings of his creative process.

Please Funko, Make This Eleven Figure From Stranger Things Real!

1

In an effort to get the attention of Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer, Funko tweeted a mockup on Tuesday of one of the more popular characters, Eleven, a little girl of few words and impressive powers.

The Pop Vinyl figure of Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown) features her super-short hair, bloody nose from using her psychic powers, and her borrowed pink dress and blue jacket. She’s even holding her favorite food: Eggo waffles.

Fingers crossed that Netflix and the Duffer Brothers take note and release the full cast of characters from Stranger Things as Funko Pop! figures. Will Byers could even be upside down.
