I’ve mostly reached Pop saturation at this point. For me to want one, it has to both be from a property I really like, a character I really like and also be a really good Pop design.
Not only do Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur fit all three criteria (the show is great, the characters are great, the Pops are great), they’re also surprisingly accurate, given the Funkoesque proprtions of a lot of the art style. Honestly, these capture them in a way I don’t think a six inch figure would, so they were a must grab.
For the most part, the Marvel Legends What If Wave 2 legt me cold. And that’s even though most of the figures weren’t even from What If, they were just lesser characters from MCU Disney + shows. I got the Jimmy Woo because, well, Jimmy Woo, but the guy behind a desk monologing at the end of Loki? No thanks, I’ll wait until he’s Kang. An immobile Howard The Duck? Two more damn zombies? No thank you.
But the Richard E Grant Loki was always a little bit tempting, and he was half-price on clearance at Target, so… yeah. He’s a solid figure, comes with a serious head nobody wants, a goofy head everybody wants, and has more articulation than Richard E. Grant probably does at this point.
