Each week we take a look at some comic book collectibles. In order to really get a good look at them, we take them out of the package. This week we're going to look at a strange combination of properties from Funko's POP! vinyl figures. DOMO and DC comics characters.
If you've seen any of the POP! figures, you know how hard they are to resist buying. I will admit I really don't know very much about DOMO. We do have one volume of the manga here in our wiki. When I first saw the plush crossover between Domo and the Justice League at this year's New York Toy Fair, I was intrigued (you can see that gallery HERE).
Funko has released a few different figures in their Pop! Heroes line.
It was a tough choice but as you can see, I narrowed it down to two. I went with the blue and yellow Batman out of nostalgia. I was really really tempted get either Green Lantern or Flash as well. I went with Batman and Superman since they are more iconic. I paid $10.99 and couldn't really justify getting the others only because I'm not really a fan of Domo, since I don't know much about it (and yes, I did look up Domo on wikipedia).
Let's be clear, these are not action figures. There is no articulation. You don't necessarily buy these to play with. You buy them because you want them to sit on your desk or wherever you might feel the urge to display them. It would be nice if there was at least articulation in the arms. But it's not necessary.
I am glad they did go with the classic Superman costume, with the underpants on the outside. It might not make much sense but it's what his costume should look like. As I mentioned, it's classic.
Superman also has an "S" on the back of his cape, again, as he should.
Again, it would be nice to be able to lower Batman's arm. But it's a good pose. The batarang is in there pretty solid so you don't have to worry about it breaking off.
There's not a lot of detail and it's not needed. But the clarity of the emblems and the little touches of the belts make these cool and fun. I might have to pick up the others. That's the problem with the Funko figures, you just get the urge to buy them all.
How many Funko/POP figures do you have? Do you want to see more featured here?
