FUNKO POP! DC
This is my second post featuring my photography and it kinda sucks. I’ve gotten kinda accustomed to borrowing high quality professional photos from the internet. I feel this site will feel more honest and genuine with photos of my actual toys instead of flashy promotional photos but it won’t look as nice. This pic was not taken with my new camera by the way, it was taken with my rinky dinky cell phone. I was bored at work today and thought I might review a couple of the figures that are sitting on my desk and I would email the reviews to myself at home. I snapped some pics but then I got busy and didn’t get around to writing anything so here I am typing away at home to entertain you when I could be lazing on the couch with Vanessa watching TMZ and eating Pringles. Because I’m craving those Pringles I’ll keep this short and sweet. I’ll save my stories about Flash the character for another time and I’ll just get to the figure at hand.
This figure is made by Funko in their line of POP! figures and bobble heads. I resisted these things at first as I already have my fair share of cutesy toys like Mighty Muggs and Blammoids. However I was eventually won over by the sheer variety of properties Funko has managed to lump together under one cohesive brand. They have Marvel and DC super heroes, Gremlins, Wizard of Oz, Rappers, Cereal Mascots, Star Wars, The Simpsons etc. My local shop Strange Adventures had a big sale on in the fall and 50% off was the final push I needed to start buying these things up. They make for good work desk companions as they’re cute conversation pieces and I don’t feel like they need to be home with the rest of my DC figures. These toys are different enough from the other previously released cutesy lines like Mighty Muggs and Blammoids to warrant a purchase. The basic body mold is posed well and holds up the giant melon without any balance issues. It should be mandatory for everyone in the office to have one of these on your desk, I think it would make for a cheerier environment. 7 out of 10.
