i was thinking about this, Mel originally made the agreement with George that he wouldn't make any toys, but he never made any such arrangement with Disney.

Hey I mean if Little Shop of Horrors got the pop treatment, there's always a decent chance Spaceballs would get one. I need Barf and Pizza the Hut for sure lol

This might be apocryphal but apparently Lucas only gave his blessing for the film if they agreed to not merchandise it. It’s number three on this list: https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/656 ... spaceballs

“The Lucas people were just upset about one aspect of Spaceballs,” Brooks told Starlog in 1987. “They didn’t think it was fair for us to do a take-off and then merchandise the characters.”

Hence the reason we will never see them. You’ll have to find a good customizer if you want a set made.

Not to damper anyone one's hopes or burst anyone's bubble, because I'd love them too, but I'm genuinely surprised this thread is still going. Spaceballs Pop!s or any Spaceballs Funko stuff will NEVER happen. Hell, aside from the home video release (and genuine posters stolen from theaters), there is literally NO official Spaceballs merchandising at all since the film was originally released. If that doesn't tell you that the rumored agreement not to merchandise the movie, nothing will I guess. And you can be guaranteed that any such agreement was put in writing and does carry over regardless of who technically owns the movie now.

For those who don't want to look it up or read back this thread, here's a base summary of why there will never be Spaceballs Pop!s…

Sometime during the development of the Spaceballs film, Mel Brooks (who was a big fan of George Lucas), felt it was only right to ask permission to spoof the Star Wars franchise before moving too far forward. Mel Brooks had a meeting with George Lucas where he explained his idea for Spaceballs. Mr. Lucas loved it and granted his blessing to move ahead with the film on the condition that there not ever be any Spaceballs merchandise because he felt it would not be fair to profit off characters of stories that were nothing but a spoof of something created by someone else. Mr. Brooks was fine with that condition, even adding the scene in Spaceballs where Yogurt is shilling all the Spaceballs merchandise as a tongue in cheek nod to the agreement. Granted, said agreement has never been officially confirmed, but numerous people who worked on or around Spaceballs or Mr. Brooks and/or Mr. Lucas respectively have said it does. Plus, if it didn't, don't you think we would have seen something Spaceballs related in the thirty plus years since it was released in theaters?

Kinda sucks, because I'd love to put a Dark Helmet, Barf, or Yogurt Pop! among my collection too, but all the dreaming and wishing in the world isn't gonna make it happen. At least not officially. Someone has made some really wicked good customs I've seen pictures of floating around the internet though.

Well that's a bummer to hear and it makes a lot of sense now why there never has been any merchandise made.
