The Funko Pop craze is still going strong, and each year the company adds wave after wave of new vinyl figures to its massive collection. The latest release hits a sweet spot between pop and food cultures: Hello Kitty is collaborating with Nissin, the company behind the iconic Cup Noodles.
This new Funko Pop features Sanrio’s iconic Hello Kitty character riding a red bike with the famous noodles in her basket. This Pop figurine is due out in September, but it's not the only one in the line. Over on Amazon, you'll find another Pop of the famed white cat poking her head out of a Cup Noodles container. (If you're even more serious about the whole thing, you can also pick up a Hello Kitty-themed bowl designed just for Cup Noodles, complete with a pair of wooden chopsticks.)
Hello Kitty, which debuted in 1974, is no stranger to the Funko brand. The character has been the subject of dozens of Pop figures in recent years, including standard versions, along with the more ostentatious kaiju variants that were released in 2020.
This new Cup Noodles collection is slated to ship on September 9, 2021, and you can preorder the figures now on Amazon.
