We've known for a while that the delightful Steven Universe would be getting some long-awaited merchandise, and now we have our first look at it: four glorious little Pop! Vinyls from Funko. They're so adorable, we just want to shove as many of them into our Cheeseburger Backpacks as possible.
Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven, the protagonists known together as the Earth-protecting Crystal Gems, make up the first line of four Steven Universe Pop! Vinyls. They're the first toys that are ushering in a wave of merchandise for Rebecca Sugar's beloved Cartoon Network series that's been long-deserved, that will include everything from collectable figurines to roleplay toys for kids and kids-at-heart to enjoy. Or, if you're anything like me, an excuse to have your desk strewn with little tidbits from the wonderful world of Beach City and its delightful denizens.
These four figurines -- costing $US15 ($21), or available as a bundle for $US60 ($83) -- will be available from December 14 in the US. Online, they're available to preorder from Cartoon Network's web store, but if you want to hunt them down in person you'll have to do it at Hot Topic, where the set will be an exclusive.
Hopefully it will be easy for fans across the world to get these, too -- the world needs itself some Steven Universe toys!
