The Island of Misfit Toys

Postby TedBelmont » Sun Feb 02, 2014 4:01 pm

I've seen Funko's Pop! line of toys before, mostly at Barnes & Noble, but I think their Ghostbusters toys are going to finally cross the line from, "hey, that's neat" to "I MUST BUY THEM ALL".

Seriously, look at this Slimer:

He's just so happy to be a focused, non-terminal repeating phantasm.

Ugh. Slimer was always the shittiest part of the Ghostbusters franchise, and that figure is just the shittiest redesign.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

Slimer was nice in the movies but the fact he remained the mascot for the series did drag the "character" down.
I think it's a nice looking figure, for Pop figures. They tend to be juuuust outside the realm of "not terrible to buy". It's the eyes. They always ruin a mostly decent figure. If they could just do the beady eyes a bit better. I'd settle for if Egon had his glasses filled in white with no pupils.

These crazy Kidrobot x Sanrio figures. o_o Somehow, that Hello Kitty creeps me out way more than the Badtz. I think it's the eyes.

When the ground is no longer frozen and snow-covered, I'm going to find some rocks for him to throw.
