Funko's press release for the announced line states, "Go on a fantasy adventure with the beloved tabletop role-playing game that brought to life elves, dwarves, tieflings and DRAGONS."

Each figurine captures the best aspects of its respective D&D character from the much-celebrated game. First up is Asmodeus, Lord of the Nine Hells. We're told to be suspicious of him, as he is likely to try and bargain for our soul. Next is Mind Flayer, who is a creature you don't want to stumble across in the Underdark. Last but not least is the combo of Minsc and Boo, a human ranger and miniature giant space hamster, respectively. They may seem like an unlikely duo, but they will have your back in any fight.
