PGA Tour circuit legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer are coming to Funko’s Pop! Vinyl figure line featuring golf professionals.

Pre-order Nicklaus and Palmer through Entertainment Earth for $10.99, with shipments expected to mail this April.

Nicklaus is an Ohio-born pro golfer nicknamed The Golden Bear due to his physique and blonde hair. He has won 18 PGA championships, the most of any golfer—Tiger Woods trails in second with 15. Today, Nicklaus designs courses under the Nicklaus Design Group banner. He has also authored books, lent his name to a series of golf video games and serves as honorary chairman of Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.

A contemporary of Nicklaus, Arnold won seven PGA championships and, in Nicklaus’ own words, “[Palmer] took the game from one level to a higher level, virtually by himself.” Palmer competed in 50 consecutive Master’s Tournaments and served as the honorary started for the tournament from 2007 until his death in 2016.

Today, an airport in his hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania bears his name, along with the concoction of iced tea and lemonade he was known to order when dining out. Palmer drank his with three-parts tea, one-part lemonade, but half-and-half seems to be the most popular Palmer these days.
