Outlander fans have been dying for years to hold a 3-D version of Jamie Fraser. Now that wish is a reality.
Earlier this year we reported that an entire line of Outlander merchandise was underway. Initial plans were for stationary, flasks, beach towels, and jewelry. We can now add vinyl figurines to that list. It is the first time that fans of the series will have their chance at a Jamie or Claire that isn’t a cardboard cutout.
According to the Funko website, a line of their well-known vinyl characters is coming out in October for Outlander. The first set of characters includes Claire, Jamie, Dougal, Black Jack, and Frank.
The Funko site states, “The hit television series Outlander is getting a Pop! series! When time-traveling World War II nurse, Claire Randall, is sent back in time she encounters noble highlanders, Jamie Fraser and Dougal Mackenzie! The highlanders are at war with a Redcoat army commanded by Black Jack Randall, the distant relative of Frank Randall, Claire’s husband! Collect the whole set before the second season starts!”
Each of the figures is detailed. Jamie is wearing the plaid of Clan Fraser. Dougal, though not in a kilt, has the plaid of Clan McKenzie, Frank wears the suit we first see him in on the car journey to Scotland. Claire has her famous curls and the dress she was most often seen in at Castle Leoch.
As long-time collectors of Funko vinyl realize, depending on popularity, these collectibles expand over time. There could be additional characters added, or alternative versions of existing characters.
Meet Jamie Fraser
Meet Dougal McKenzie
Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser
Black Jack Randall
We are fairly sure that fans will be thrilled to have their very own matched pair of Jamie and Claire. We could even see fans dying to get their hands on Dougal or Frank. On the other hand, we are having a hard time imagining why someone would want a Black Jack Randall figurine after the season 1 finale. Maybe they’ll be a rash of people turning the Black Jack figurine into an ill-wish doll?
