Online retailer Pop In A Box has announced its newest Pop! Vinyl exclusive: a starlight-themed figure of Mufasa stylized to represent the character’s appearance to his son, Simba, in the latter half of Disney’s The Lion King.
According to Pop In A Box’s Twitter account, the figure will be available in extremely limited quantities starting 12 p.m. ET Oct. 9. It will be stocked at PIAB’s online storefront for one hour, and the retailer expects quantities to sell out before time expires.
Mufasa first returned to Simba in celestial form in 1994 animated childrens classic The Lion King. The Lion King’s 2019 computer animated remake will release on Blu-ray Oct. 22.
In both films, Mufasa stands tall as the leader of his pride and a role model to his only son, Simba. After the young cub blames himself for his father’s untimely demise, he flees from home and begins life anew. However, when Simba’s past finally catches up with him, the prince of Pride Rock turns to his father’s memory for guidance.
