GameStop Exclusive Hans Gruber:
Let's make something very clear right now: DIE HARD is a Christmas movie. Same goes for its first sequel, DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER. There is no debate, period. With that in mind, it's exciting that Funko and 20th Century Fox have teamed-up for a new collection of Pop! Vinyl figures. Available for pre-order via my affiliates, Entertainment Earth and GameStop, there's John McClane (Bruce Willis), Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), Sgt. Al Powell (Reginald VelJohnson) and Tony Vreski (Andreas Wisniewski), along with a GameStop-exclusive version of Hans rockin' his long coat. A pick for my 2018 Holiday Wish Guide, these figures would make the perfect gift for the action lover on your list. Now can we get Argyle and Ellis? If you want these, you better order them now!
