I don’t think it says it anywhere, but to me this Funko Pop! Icons KFC Colonel Sanders Figure is Norm MacDonald as Colonel Sanders, and of course, that makes it better. It’s Funko Pop! Icons KFC #05, and Colonel Sanders, with his white suit, white hair and black glasses, is holding a tasty bucket of KFC fried chicken.
The real Colonel Harland David Sanders passed away in 1980, but recently they have had numerous actors portray him in television commercials including Darrell Hammond, Norm MacDonald, George Hamilton, Jim Gaffigan, Rob Lowe, Ray Liotta, Dolph Ziggler, Rob Riggle, Billy Zane, Vincent Kartheiser, Christopher Boyer, Reba McEntire, and Jason Alexander.
This Pop! may not be finger lickin’ good, but it is making us hungry. Someone pass the bucket of chicken, stat! Colonel Sanders has been given the ultimate Funko makeover as a vinyl figure… he’s even holding a bucket of chicken.
If you prefer Colonel Sanders to be holding his cane (as pictured above) instead of a bucket of KFC chicken, you’ll want the older Funko Pop! Icons KFC #04. It’s hard to find these days, but they often are available on eBay.
