As stated when news of the first NHL set surfaced, Funko Pops! don’t quite hit my nerd buttons as much as they do for others. The duller ones look like non-profane “South Park” extras.

Game 1: Which players can you make out from especially far away, like this tweet? Hint: most will probably guess the guy who was in this post’s main image.

Anyway, it looks like fun stuff, especially if those figures are your jam. Or, really, even if they’re usually not.
(The minis might be too much for any human to resist.)
