Michael Jordan Funko POP! [NBA Legends]

Postby PopPChulo » Mon Sep 10, 2018 9:55 pm

Hey Funatics,

I just want to know why we don't have a Michael Jordan Funko Pop!? - I completely understand that there may be a licensing issue with this one imparticular but I think a lot of people would appreciate Michael Jordan as he is Legend - I think there is a possibility that this could be coming though being that they did just announce the NFL Legends line. You could give me a chase with Jordans on while your at it lol Anyone else looking for this funko POP!?

MJ is super strict about his likeness so it'll be real difficult for Funko to obtain that license. Would be sweet though.

I would hope it's a common, however, I could see this becoming a common that becomes a grail simply because if how much of an impact he's had on basketball.

I'd also like to see other 90s NBA legends on Pop form.

Jordan for sure needs to be made. I’d need Magic also and even though I hate the Celtics there has to be a Bird. I’d get him so I could burn him lol

I know someone said it earlier but man, if he was included in the Space Jam, that would’ve been amazing. But I’m sure it’s a licensing issue with him like the whole Mummy/Tom Cruise thing.

MJ would never allow his likeness on a Pop. His image is too expensive to get the rights to. Poor Funko.

That's my thoughts anyways.

I think they should make a proto and show it to Jordan. Once he sees it he'll want it made.

Its a real shame he is so stingy with his likeness but it's understandable. He was always my favorite player growing up so I would absolutely love to see this happen someday. I would love to see other NBA legends also but he would most definitely be first on the list.

Id love to see a Legends Jordan. There could be variants too. A chase with the trophy (like gretzky) and a exclusive elsewhere with him in his Barons outfit.

To be honest with you - I really feel as if Funko is a neutral enough property that Jordan would allow a license in his image but I don't think that he would allow there to be several Funko POP! create in his likeness.. I could see him okaying maybe one or two.. It's a possibility he may want the POP! to be limited as well. I don't see Jordan allowing it to be a mass produced item but more or less a limited run. Jordan is a HUGE brand that still holds up to this day even though he hasn't been on the court publicly in years. I just hope that this can be a thing because its something that most basketball fans would die to have in their collection.

As much as I’d like to see this, I don’t see it happening. I don’t remember the last time any Jordan figure was made.

A Michael Jordan Pop would be amazing. It would be cool if they had different variants. They could make one of him in his UNC jersey, one with the classic number 23 Bulls jersey and maybe a chase of him wearing the number 45 jersey.

Think about NBA video games and how hard it’s for them to get MJ or he’s likeness on there for a tiny bit. I’m sure it would be even harder with little ROI for both parties to have him become a Funko figure.

Man - I think that Michael Jordan is one POP! that everyone could appreciate - There has been figures and game appearances by Jordan before so this license can't be impossible to obtain.
