A little while ago in December 2017, beloved man Taika Waititi uploaded a gorgeous photo of himself in a pineapple two-piece shorts and shirt set. The Thor: Ragnarok director had been at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con event and obviously dressed up proving there is a man far more attractive than Chris Hemsworth. 

See below for proof and pineapples:

Chris, who?

Back then, toy-makers Funko caught whiff of the photo and replied, extremely keen to create a Pop! version of the iconic look:

Of course, most people thought they were just being cheeky and all was forgotten until now because LOOK, they actually did it and I WANT 12.

Taika Waititi In Pineapple Outfit Is The Greatest Funko Pop! Figure Ever

Little Taika is part of the Marvel collection at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

No joke, this is a real thing you can get your hands on.

Kraglin from Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, Valkyrie, Jessica Jones, Captain America, Red Skull, Ant-Man, and Cheerleader Deadpool are also up for grabs. And that’s not all because SDCC are promising a ton more of surprises.

According to the site, the Pop! vinyl figures are exclusive to SDCC which could possibly and unfortunately mean they’ll only be sold at the event. Although, this might also mean they’ll be released to the rest of the world some months later when the exclusiveness wears off. Well, here’s hoping anyway. If not, they might be sold online too during SDCC – I’m really just giving myself hope at this point.

A bunch of other directors have also been immortalised by the toy company including James Gunn, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Feig, and James Wan. 

As for Waititi, he’s yet to react to his mini-me, probably because the man’s too busy playing Hitler in his WWII dark comedy. Jojo Rabbit, somewhere in or around Prague.
