Funko has revealed a collection of POP! vinyl figures, inspired by the characters on the classic 1990s sitcom Seinfeld. Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and George are all here, wearing memorable costumes, including the Puffy Shirt and Urban Sombrero. Newman and the Soup Nazi also make appearances. Shipping starts 5.2021.
“Why would you make a game based on a sitcom that last aired over 20 years ago and potentially incur the wrath of lawyers?..” Well, because Jacob Janerka and Ivan Dixon are hoping their concept proves there’s enough demand for a point-and-click Seinfeld adventure game that it actually gets licensed and developed.
To celebrate 30 years of Seinfeld (man, we’re getting old), Brent Waller submitted this concept to LEGO Ideas in hopes of its production. The 900-piece set features Jerry’s apartment, and awesome minifigs of Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, George, and Newman. Cast your vote and show your support, or there will be no soup for you!
Fans of the classic sitcom will drool over this 1/26-scale model of Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment set. No detail has been spared from the art on the walls to the tiny Macintosh, thanks in part to Production Designer Tho. E. Azzari’s help with the plans. Measures 16.5″ W x 11.5″ D x 6.5″ H.
Nerdwriter1 reminds us that Seinfeld‘s “defining” joke shouldn’t be taken literally. The show shifted sitcoms from, “What’s it about?”, or “What’s the lesson here?” to “How funny is it?” Imagine pitching a comedy about a paper company or urban planning officials.
Los Angeles’ pop art Gallery1988 offers up a collection which pays tribute to the greatest sitcom of all time, Seinfeld. The exhibit kicked off on 10/17, and you can find many of the works for sale on their website. Sadly, Cuyler Smith’s George Costanza trading cards are sold out.
