A little while ago I picked up the Santa Funko POP! figure and I realised that I absolutely needed Rudolph to go with him.
Funko POP! is a series of figures that are every bit as addictive as they are adorable and you reach a certain point where you just cant help yourself — especially when it comes to sets. I have Santa, so of course I need Rudolph!
Unlike the Santa figure, Rudolphs head can turn all the way around.
Hes absolutely adorable and he looks really great next to Santa as well.
I don’t think that I need the rest in this particular series…. but who knows… theres an elf out there…
Bit of a confession here: I am a Christmas NUT.
I adore Christmas. The decorations. The lights. The music. The food. So, yes, Ill probably be posting about Santa Clauses and Angels for the next little while because OMG CHRISTMAS YES.
So I saw this utterly adorable little Funko POP Santa Clause at the store the other day and that was it. He was coming home with me.
Their Christmas series also included a Rudolph, Hermey, Bumble and a Misfit Elephant. All characters of course from the classic Christmas Special Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer by Rankin/Bass.
Funko POP figures are always wonderfully sculpted, though not always as wonderfully painted. There are many little spots where the colour does not stay in the lines as it were. His head also does not turn at all like most Funko POP figures heads do.
But he looks fantastic on the shelf!
As you may recall, I started off my Funko Pop! collection with Daenerys from Game of Thrones, which is a fantasticly awesome figure that just begged to have friends with it. I knew however that I couldn’t just start collecting Pop!s all willy-nilly or else I would very quickly be drowning in a sea of the things. There are so many of them, it was just a rabbit hole I was unwilling to venture down. So, I decided on a focus for my Funko purchases, and settled on bad-ass princesses, so here we are.
The most obvious first companion to Danny was She-Ra, the Princess of Power! The two of them can chill out and discuss being bad-ass royalty together.
Iv wanted a She-Ra figure for a while, but none of the She-Ras out there really speak to me much, except maybe for this one, but the original doll version is….aaahh, not really my thing. But the Funko Pop! figure looks spectacular and I am thrilled that she finally arrived. She is a really cool figure and a brilliant addition to my collection.
I was thrilled a couple of weeks ago to find Twilight Sparkle in the local nerd store, and scooped her up in moments. Shes utterly adorable, with her sculpted muzzle and little sitting position. I really like the Funko Pop! pony sculpts, and think they did a fine job with them.
Now, I have found with the Pop! figures that sometimes the paint job is a little sloppy, and my Twilight is the worst offender of my three Pop! figures. She does have quite a few spots where the colours are uneven, most noticeably that missing bit on the tip of her horn. So that is kind of disappointing, but Ill probably be able to fix it up a bit later.
Heres Twilight next to the regular brushable mane Twilight. As you can see the colours are much more accurate to the show on the Funko Pop! version.
Next Ill be on the lookout for Merida and Princess Bubblegum :3
