So if you live outside the U.K, you probably have to pay vat and taxes by then.

Funko usually unveils pops pretty close to their release date, so I imagine it's November for the US and February for Europe.

Disappointed they went with '80s versions. Would have much preferred the Go West costumes, or at least a more contemporary look for Neil.

I am relenting - sort of. I still don't like them, but my missus is buying them for me as a gift.

After discussing it with her I determined that if they release other PSB ones (in other styles like Go West or Can you forgive her?) I will be kicking myself later for not collecting a complete set, irrespective of my feelings towards them.

My completist OCD won over my dislike of these.

Thanks Oznerol - I feel better for seeing that. Maybe I should buy a second set and "customize" them like the kids do with their Barbie dolls...

So you changed the hat to say BOY.
The PSB hat is canon though.

I'm starting to wonder if they changed it for copyright reasons, Boy is a trademarked brand.
Personally I don't mind the PSB hat. I like the acronym so it's fine here.

Sage, you just made my day! I'd forgotten this and so yes Chris HAS been seen in a PSB hat. Anachronistic it may be, but as you rightly say, it is "canon".

Oh, good to see that a PSB hat was also used! altough is not coherent with the era of the dolls design (nor the keytar..but..welll...)
The hat was not the only change..also making the glasses full opaque (and not semi-transparent) is a fundamental Chris thing...

Is there a definitive release date on these?

PSB site touted Feb 2021 and Funko now shows Dec 2020. I also seem to recall some placed it at Nov 2020.

I suspect I'd trust Funko more than anyone. Be nice to have in time for Chrimble.
