The Great White Shark from Jaws is now a stylized Funko Pop! If you or anyone you know is a fan of the movie franchise, this figure is one of the best bits to add to your collection.
Jaws is a 1975 movie by the legendary Stephen Spielberg about a man-eating great white shark attacking beachgoers at a summer resort. It starred big names from the ‘70s like Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfus, and Robert Shaw.
Fun fact: this movie was the first major motion picture to be shot on the ocean and was the highest-grossing film before Star Wars was released in 1977 — it made up to 50 times in box office revenue!
This movie was such a pop culture hit that the National Film Registry regarded it as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant,” with the Library of Congress selecting it for preservation.
All Funko Pop! characters are made of vinyl, a form of plastic. Vinyl chloride is used to produce polyvinyl chloride (PVC), one of the largest petrochemicals in production. Most figurines available in the market are made from vinyl.
The Jaws Great White Shark Funko Pop! looks like the run-of-the-mill great white shark, complete with grayish-white flesh all over his body. His eyes are dark, wide, and round, and his “jaws” bared, showing a row of sharp, pointed teeth.
The pectoral fins and gills on his sides help him breathe and navigate the oceans. Of course, a great white shark wouldn’t be complete without the pointed dorsal fin that tells you whenever he’s nearby. So, better swim as fast as you spot it because he’s coming for you!
