The 10 Best Stranger Things Collectibles (Updated 2022)

It has been six years since the first episode of Stranger Things was released on Netflix and since then the Sci-Fi horror fiction TV show has spawned an empire of devoted fans. Set in the 1980s, Stranger Things is dripping in ’80s retro nostalgia, from the loud outfits to the soundtrack and huge haircuts. This has also influenced the merchandise that is being produced, and you can now pick up entire Stranger Things-inspired outfits that will show your love for the show or even make you look like you’ve come straight out of Hawkins. The Duffer brothers have announced a return to Hawkins for Season 5 meaning there is a lot of potential for new iconic characters and retro nostalgic merchandise that may be coming our way, potentially a return of Eddie? However, Stranger Things has also spawned a really exciting collectibles market and there is a large amount of officially licensed collectibles out there to choose from. Whether you’re an avid Sci-Fi collector, a huge Stranger Things fan or want to add some interesting items to your ‘man cave’ there is a Stranger Things collectible out there for you. From the sweet and cuddly toys to the grotesque Upside-Down creature figurines, the sheer amount of choice can be a little overwhelming, so we have put together the 10 best Stranger Things collectibles. There has been a lot of geeking out over this list, so rest assured, all items included have been carefully considered.

Stranger Things 3 Pack

In an attempt to more accurately represent the characters in the show, Funko has produced a 3-pack Stranger Things action figure set. Included in the pack are Will, Dustin and a Demogorgon as an action figure 3-piece which all stand at 3 3/4 inches tall.

Of all the characters, the Demogorgon is the most exciting as Funko has rather painstakingly gone to great lengths to articulate the little details, such as its teeth and extended limbs. However, that shouldn’t detract from Will and Dustin as both figures also look very realistic, and we absolutely love the additional accessories they come with. For example, Dustin comes with a little can of ‘chocolate pudding’ and both characters have detachable backpacks as seen in the show. This 3-pack collectors set sits in a wider collection of Funko Stranger Things action figures and you can also purchase a 3-pack with Eleven, Lucas and Mike who also come with their own unique accessories. Both products together would be a wonderful addition to your Stranger Things collection. We must say, this product would better suit a collector who is planning on keeping the figures in the box and factory sealed instead of a younger fan who may be purchasing them to play with. The silicone is rather soft, and the limbs are detachable, so there is quite a lot of potential for choking hazards. That being said, the packaging the figures come in looks brilliant, and it would be ashamed to rip it apart.

If you have read any of our other collectibles guides, you’ll be aware that we are huge fans of LEGO collectible sets, and this Stranger Things Byers’ House LEGO set is no exception. This is 100 percent officially licensed Stranger Things merchandise that will keep you occupied for hours. With 2287 pieces in total, this is going to take a while to complete and there will be a few head-scratching moments, but the end result is totally worth it and will look astonishing in a Stranger Things collection. Not only is the real-world version of the Byers’ house included but the alternate Upside Down equivalent underneath it is also present, super cool.

When completed, the house measures 12 inches tall, 17 inches wide, and 8 inches deep, so be prepared to make some room for it on your mantelpiece. Included are 8 Stranger Things LEGO characters; Eleven, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Will, Joyce, Hopper, and a Demogorgon which in LEGO form, is super cute! Considering the complexity, this isn’t really ideal for the younger collectors out there and LEGO has actually rated this 16+, so bear that in mind. The inside is really detailed, and the living room actually lights up at the wall alphabet section, just like in the show! There are other accessories included like Hopper’s police truck, Will’s bedroom, walkie-talkies, and flashlights.

For those who are too young to know, Lite-Brite is a toy that was first produced all the way back in 1967 and is essentially a Lightbox with a panel that fits small colored plastic pegs into it and when illuminated creates an image.

Stranger Things has also made it onto a Monopoly board. This is great news for both Monopoly collectors and fans of the TV show as there are a lot of great references to the episodes in season 1 and Monopoly have done a superb job of putting together a sturdy quality board game. Instead of your usual Monopoly tokens, with the Stranger Things edition, the tokens are 80s-inspired and ‘have been ripped from the Upside Down.’ The gameplay itself is like any other standard Monopoly game but with Stranger Things, references swapped in. For example, instead of purchasing houses and hotels, you purchase hideouts and forts, instead of community chest and chance cards you pick up Walkie-Talkie and Blinking Lights cards. However, be careful where you tread as you can still land yourself in a Hawkins jail, that widely loathed move is still on the board. Although the tokens are based on ‘80s-inspired items it would have been a good touch if they actually used main references from the show itself, the bat with nails, the wrist rocket, or an Eggos, for example. It would have also been good if the money was a little more Stranger Things inspired. That being said, this is a great collectible for anyone who is having Stranger Things withdrawals whilst waiting on season five to be released as it will transport you straight into Hawkins.

  • 8 ’80s inspired playable tokens

Season 3 ushered in a marked development for Eleven’s (Milly Bobby Brown) character as before her trip to the mall with Max, we had primarily seen her in hospital gowns or oversized scraggly clothes. Season 3 starts with a flash of color and Eleven and Max go on a trip to the mall together, after this trip the pair’s friendship is solidified, and Eleven’s clothes are the visual personification of her character changing from a science experiment into a human being. The Starcourt Mall becomes the pinnacle area of Hawkins in season 3 and the story crescendo’s in a huge battle against The Mind Flayer which takes the life of Max’s brother, Billy. For much of the season, Eleven is in this super-’80s outfit, and it has become one of the most recognized outfits in the whole program, and Funko has replicated it very colorfully with this 3.75-inch vinyl figure. A great option for Funko Pop! collectors and Stranger Things fans alike, this Eleven figure comes in a window display box that will look at home on any collector’s mantelpiece. If you decide to take the figure out of the box to see all of its colorful glory there is good news, Funko also provided a stand that you can place the figure on for out-of-the-box displaying. Funko never hangs about in producing as many collectible figures as they can so if you’re a serial collector there are many other Stranger Things characters out there to snap up, but this Eleven figure is definitely one you should start with.

Stranger Things Eleven Funko Pop

Funko Pop! TV: Stranger Things Eleven in Mall Outfit Figure

In one of the best scenes of the entire show, whilst in the Upside Down, Eddie whips out his beloved B.C. Rich Warlock guitar cranks his amp and rips out Master of The Puppets by Metallic to distract the bat-like Upside Down creatures away from his friends who have been trapped whilst on their way to destroy Vecna. He lived every guitarist’s dream, to play during the end of the world. AXE HEAVEN have wonderfully produced a miniature model of Eddie’s jagged guitar with accurate attention to detail. Every model has been individually handcrafted with solid wood and real metal tuning keys. Like the real version, each guitar has been finished in a ‘crackle’ finish and has really captured the distinct features.

The solid wood and metal tuning keys are a premium touch that you don’t usually get with miniature replica models, and we believe this figure really benefits from it. There are even strap buttons on the back of the guitar, the attention to detail is really incredible. AXE HEAVEN has been given the official license by both Stranger Things and B.C. Rich to create these models, so rest assured that you are buying the real deal. Also included with the guitar is a limited edition Stranger Things collectors sleeve and a stand you can display the guitar on. This is a miniature replica, so be aware that the guitar won’t actually make a noise if you strum the strings, you’ll have to go for the real deal if you want to do that.

Stranger Things Eddie's Guitar

Stranger Things Eddie’s Guitar Miniature Replica

Jada Toys have knocked it out of the park with this one with perhaps the coolest collectible item on this list?! Billy is one of the most distinct characters in the earlier Season of Stranger Things, his mean heartthrob demeanor is emphasized by his style, and he rocks the double denim like a troubled George Michael. However, his motor is sometimes an overlooked aspect of his aesthetic but is perhaps the most defining. Billy drives a mean-looking Chevrolet Camaro Z28 which is an instant throwback to the ‘80s, what else would a troubled hard nut drive? Jada Toys have paid homage to Billy’s motor with this excellent 1/24 die-cast model of his beloved Camaro Z28 which has been authentically replicated. There has been real attention to detail on this model; from the opening hood, doors, and trunk to the detailed interior, engine compartment, real rubber tires, and exterior, this will be the pride of place in any person’s Stranger Things collection, especially the car enthusiasts! Included with the die-cast replica is a collectible coin that depicts Billy looking extra cool with his aviator sunglasses on.

If you preferred to keep the model in the box that is no problem as Jada Toys have supplied a really attractive windowed box that you can present it in. There is one other model to complete the Jada Toy’s collection, a die-cast model of the Hawkins Police truck, but you should definitely start with Billy’s Chevy since it is too cool to pass up.

Although one of the most recently introduced cast members, Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) quickly became a fan favorite when we were introduced to his bad boy, rock ’n’ rolling attitude in season 4. Leader of the infamous Hellfire Club, a high school group that got together to play Dungeons and Dragons, Eddie was one of the main protagonists in season 4 and his iconic look has been immortalized with this collectible action figure by Bandai. Known for their original WWE wrestling figures, Japanese company Bandai are a well-known brand in the collectible action figure market and their experience and attention to detail are on fine display with this 6-inch, hyper-detailed Eddie Munson action figure. There are over 20 points of articulation in this figure which has resulted in a striking resemblance to Quinn’s character in Season 4.

The figure also comes with Bandai collectible packaging, so if you are a collector who enjoys keeping items in their collection in pristine condition this is a great displayable feature. Eddie sits in a collection of five other Stranger Things Bandai figures, so you can collect them all if you’d prefer the full cohort. The only thing we reckon would take this action figure to the next level would be the inclusion of Eddie’s famous B.C. Rich Warlock as an accessory with the figure. However, you can purchase an action figure scale version of his guitar online if you wanted to add his pointy axe.
