'Sherlock' Funko figures can surely solve mini mysteries

Re-create your favorite sleuthing moments from "Sherlock" with Funko's Vinyl Pop figures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, as well as their friends and enemies.

Sherlock wouldn't be Sherlock without his violin. Funko

As a devout fan of the British drama "Sherlock," it feels like ages before we'll get to watch the upcoming Victorian special, or Series 4 for that matter.

Perhaps we can maintain our sanity in the meantime by using to act out our favorite scenes. Next up are Vinyl Pop figures from Funko.

Vinyl Pop figures, which are more stylized than realistic, have become collectibles for fans of numerous franchises from "Star Wars" to "Batman."

So it makes sense that Funko has taken a crack at the popular mystery series as well.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson from "Sherlock" look downright delightful as Vinyl Pop figures from Funko, which are due to hit stories in October.

Each vinyl figure stands about 3.75 inches tall and costs $10 (about £7, AU$14). The figures are available for preorder online at Entertainment Earth in the US and at the BBC Shop in the UK.

Sherlock Holmes Funko

The Great Detective comes in two variations. One is decked out in his signature suit, trench coat, scarf and gloves. The other wears his Christmas suit and, more importantly, hold his beloved violin, ready to play.

Dr. John Watson Funko

Sherlock would be lost without his blogger and best friend Dr. John Watson, whose figure is dressed in his trendy jacket, shirt, jeans and work boots. Sadly, Watson's Funko figure doesn't come with his trusty laptop and tea mug.

Mycroft Holmes Funko

Then there's Sherlock's powerful older brother, Mycroft Holmes played by Mark Gatiss. He may or may not run the British government, but what one thing is very evident from his Funko figure: He is always dressed like a dapper man with an umbrella and all the answers.

Irene Adler Funko

Seductive femme fatale Irene Adler, played by Lara Pulver, gets her own figure as well. "The Woman," as Sherlock refers to her, wears her posh white dress but it's her mobile phone that contains all the secrets. Of course, she's also holding Sherlock's coat, which she will return with a bit of drama.

Jim Moriarty Funko

Of course, the set wouldn't be complete without Sherlock's nemesis, Jim Moriarty, played by Andrew Scott. After all, as Moriarty tells Sherlock in the series, "Every fairytale needs a good old-fashioned villain." His figure is dressed to kill, quite literally. Plus he comes with the apple he bites into as he torments Sherlock during their tension-filled tea party.

Now if Funko would only make Vinyl Pop figures for landlady Mrs. Hudson, science-lab pal Molly Hooper, Detective Inspector Lestrade and Watson's wife, Mary Morstan.

I can't wait to get the whole crew so I can make YouTube videos of my "Sherlock" fan fiction in action. Feel free to blame/thank Funko for any embarrassing future fan films from me.
