Each week we take a close look at a comic book collectible. That means taking it out of the package. With this week's feature, we really had no choice in taking it out. Blind box figures have made a big comeback. This week we try our luck with the Funko Marvel Mystery Mini figures.
These are mini bobble-head figures and they stand just under three inches. You can see from the back of the box, there are sixteen different possible characters you can get. Actually, some, like Loki and Deadpool, have two different figures in different poses.
Hopefully you watched the video at the top of the page already.
If you did, you know what figures we got. In order to share the unboxing experience with us, be sure to check out the video first. Then come back and look at these close up images.
I actually got these figures back during WonderCon. I saw a vender selling them for $6 each. At C2E2, I saw some more venders selling them. At one, they were going for $8 each and another had them for two for $15. So you might have to shop around to get a good deal.
Have you watched the video yet? If so, you know I got two of the same figure. That's the luck of the draw. The good and the bad is you don't know what you're going to get. The vender I got these from was willing to trade figures if you opened them there. They had a couple opened but I chose to take them with me in order to open them on camera and share the experience with all of you. You're welcome.
Here's shots of the bobble-heads:
You can see these are cute little figures. The size makes it easier to buy more to display on your desk or shelf. I'm not the biggest fan of bobble-heads but I do own a couple. These don't really stand out as much as others, the ones with the incredibly large heads.
I am tempted to get more. The main factor is finding them at the right price since it seems some people are willing to mark them up higher. Let me know if you bought any of these and who you got. I do still really really want a Doctor Doom, Galactus, and Thanos...
That's it for this week. We'll have another glorious item featured next time.
