Zecora

Zecora has always been one of my favourite characters in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show. And while theres not a lot of merchandise for her, theres certainly more then I ever expected. Getting a Zecora pony was not very expected, and neither was getting a Zecora Equestia Girls doll! So when I saw the Toy Fair photos, I knew this was one I would have to add to the collection.

Now shes got added pink streaks in her hair because she is a part of the “Rainbowfied” line, but I really think Zecora pulls that off nicely, especially with the matching makeup.
I rather love her asymetrical look; she looks punky and classy all at the same time. I was a little skeptical how the earrings would look on top of her head like that, but they end up looking pretty cool IMO. I think that she translated to doll form very well actually, all in all!

I do wish that she had bigger, more prominent stripes though. Shes supposed to be a Zebra, remember?

Now Im sure you already know my feelings about the clothes that the Equestria Girls come in. Really the only EQG outfit Iv liked was Trixies.
This one is… quite possibly my least favourite outfit ever. Its… the skirt, really. I hate the skirt. There, I said it. The jacket is totally cool and the tank is cute, but the skirt is awful.
That said I dont really think any of it suits Zecora specifically because, if youve seen the show at all, Zecora is African.
So you can bet that I will be redressing her sometime soon 🙂

Finally got my hands on one of the new Game of Thrones articulated action figures from Funko!
Iv been eagerly anticipating the release of these and waiting with bated breath for my local stores to get them in. Iv had to wait a bit longer then I hoped, too, because the first time attempted to pick up Daenerys, she was already sold out. Bummer. But its been well worth the wait!

As usually from Funko, the sculpt is absolutely gorgeous. The detailing on her clothes and hair is phenomenal, and although the face mold isn’t the most accurate to the actress Iv seen, its certainly not the worst either. She looks just great! Shes also way more articulated then I ever dreamed. Shes got the usual articulated points at the shoulders, elbow wrist, as well as thigh, knee, ankle. But shes also articulated at the waist and can turn this way and that, as well as bend over backwards!
Of course as I have also found with Funko, the paint job isn’t the greatest and there are certainly a few smudges on my figure. I also wish the elbow joints had been fully painted!

All in all though she looks amazing…. and absolutely gorgeous from the back, too 😀
Word of caution though; if you want to display her with the dragon perched upon her shoulder and not loose the darn thing, I would recommend gluing that sucker in place. He dosnt stay very well.
