With Shang Chi only two weeks away, Marvel and Funko are starting to turn their marketing and merchandising attention to November’s Eternals. The sci-fi flick is full of star power—some of the most recognizable names in Hollywood will bring to life some of the most powerful beings in Marvel’s universe. Funko is offering an expansive product line, giving fans a number of ways to celebrate the upcoming event.

The figures in the first photo depict the Superman-like Ikaris (Richard Madden), matter manipulator Sersi (Gemma Chan), speedster Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), weapons expert Thena (Angelina Jolie), and hand-to-hand combat extraordinaire Gilgamesh (Don Lee). Gilgamesh is the only figure with a chase variant, meaning every sixth Gilgamesh figure produced will be glow-in-the-dark.
The second photo includes the illusionist Sprite (Lia McHugh), healer and Eternals leader Ajak (Salma Hayek), thought manipulator Druig (Barry Keoghan), energy manipulator Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), normal human man Dane Whitman (Kit Harington), and inventor Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry). Deviant leader Kro and a jumbo-sized Pop! of the Celestial Arishem are seen in photo three.
Retail exclusives are commonplace for Funko. The company’s Eternals exclusives are pictured above and include Sersi in normal human woman clothing (Target), a menacing Kro (Gamestop/EB Games Canada), A special Phastos (FYE), a variant Thena (Walmart), a variant Dane (Funko Shop) and a partially translucent Sprite (Books-a-Million).
The Pop! Vinyl options are joined by Mystery Minis, Pop! Pens and Pocket Pop! Keychains, all of which can be viewed below. Entertainment Earth is currently accepting preorders for a number of Eternals figures, including the online storefront’s own retailer exclusive trading card pack-in on select Pop! Vinyl figures.

Eternals releases in America Nov. 5, 2021, and introduces Marvel Cinematic Universe fans to the human race’s genetically modified distant cousins. In Marvel’s version of events, Eternals were created by the Celestials and have lived among us throughout mankind’s journey. MCU writers dropped hints about their universe’s higher powers in previous films like Guardians of the Galaxy, in which the mining colony Knowhere is positioned on the head of a deceased Celestial. However, with heightened stakes introduced in Disney+ series Loki, expect the Celestials and Eternals to take a front seat moving forward alongside other high-concept elements like the multiverse.
