Funko POP Santa!

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!

New Funko Pops! Twilight Sparkle and She-Ra

29 Aug

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

Funko Pop! Daenerys

Today I picked up the Funko Pop! figure of Daenerys.
Its the first Funko Pop! figure Iv ever bought. Iv never really been the hugest fan of the Funko Pop! line, but I am a huge fan of Danny and this is (so far) the only official Danny figure.
Shes one in a series of Game of Thrones figures. Shes really cute, and has great molded hair. She is sporting her Dothraki outfit from the first season and is shown with one of her dragons.

I sort of wish that they hadn’t included a dragon because she has THREE dragons, and it seems to me that either all three or none at all should be included in a figure. Perhaps this is her favourite dragon. (Shhhhh don’t tell the other two)
I was pretty excited to get this figure nonetheless. I love Daenerys and wish there was more merchandise around for her! I do wish there was an actual DOLL of her as much as I like this chibi version of her. But this is great for now! The other Funko Pop! figure I really want is the Marvel Loki.
