Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.
And Pop! The Big Bang Theory trumps them all.
The iconic program airs its series finale tonight after a dozen seasons on CBS. For that, we’d like to offer a hearty Vulcan salute. Sheldon, Leonard and their cohorts have carved out quite the niche in the pop culture “nerd” zeitgeist, particularly in the collectibles industry.
More specifically, with Funko who offers 29 Pop! Television vinyl figures dedicated to the Chuck Lorre program – led by Sheldon Cooper with eight variations.
The cantankerous Cooper was a natural fit for multiple variants based on his superhero T-shirts alone. Throughout the years, Sheldon slipped the likes of Batman and Superman, as well as Hawkman and The Flash, over a long-sleeve shirt to form an instantly recognizable fashion style. Lest we forget his classic Green Lantern look.
The crew were natural fits for a line of The Big Bang Theory-themed Star Trek Pop! figures as Leonard, Howard and Raj also transported themselves as 2013 San Diego Comic-Con exclusives.
The ladies — Amy Farrah Fowler (four Pop!s) and Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz (two) — are represented, although we must lament that we’d like to see more than two Penny Pop! figures.
Live long and prosper, The Big Bang Theory.
