MCU fans have an absolute wealth of material to take in at the moment with the long-awaited release of Spider-Man: No Way Home in theaters and the Disney+ release of Hawkeye’s fifth episode. While Clint Barton and Kate Bishop were still the centerpieces of this past entry, fans immediately gravitated to Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova as she made her full Hawkeye appearance alongside the core heroes.
Following up on Yelena's MCU debut in 2021's Black Widow, there was palpable excitement to see where her story would go after her encounter with Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Val in the post-credits scene. From showing no mercy towards Clint Barton upon her arrival to making sure Kate Bishop knew the true story behind the madness, the stage is being set for something thrilling in the show's final episode.
Now that Yelena is back in action, fans are searching for any way possible to take in the latest round of her MCU tenure. Thankfully, the ever-popular Funko Pop! is all over that mania with a new figurine centered on the new fan-favorite character.
Yelena Belova Comes to Funko Pop!
Entertainment Earth opened online pre-orders for two new Funko Pops! featuring Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova after her appearance in Episode 5 of Hawkeye. The two figurines show the anti-hero both masked and unmasked.
Yelena stands ready for battle, carrying her classic Black Widow batons with her hair pulled back in braids.
The packaging for Yelena's first Funko Pop! is adorned in purple, paying tribute to the core color in Hawkeye.
The second Pop! pays tribute to Yelena's mask that she wears when first entering the fray in Episode 4, complete with lime-colored eyes and three extra circles in between.
This Pop! features similar packaging and gives an homage to Yelena's classic look from the comics. The masked one is also a Chase variant, which fans have the opportunity to receive if they purchase the Pop! more than once.
Yelena Merchandise Hot Off the Online Shelves
Funko Pop! is always on top of their game with new MCU releases, which has come to fruition in Hawkeye alone with Pops! featuring Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop and Alaqua Cox's Echo. Now, Yelena gets to join in with her own special figurines that should be a hot item over the coming weeks.
Taking into account that there is still one more episode of Hawkeye to expand on her story and set her up for future outings, these Funkos have a lot riding on them with the way Yelena's adventures will continue. For now, though, fans can celebrate all of her accomplishments thus far with these exciting new additions to the Funko MCU lineup.
The first five episodes of Hawkeye are available to stream on Disney+.
