Smuggler's Bounty delivery service from Funko. Ready to dive right in to this review? Then join me after the break...
Height: 4 inches
Articulation: Bobbling head
Accessories: Display stand.
Non-Scalper Price: Included with the November 2015 Smuggler's Bounty box. The box includes this and one other POP! along with a Stormtrooper lanyard, a Kylo Ren pin, a Tie Fighter Pilot patch, and a t-shirt.
*I always think that Funko does a nice job sculpting their POP! figures, particularly when they have a character wearing a mask or armor. From what I've seen this is quite an accurate portrayal of the First Order Tie Fighter Pilots from The Force Awakens. The black paint work looks great in person as it has a nice shine to it, although it did make photographing this POP! a real pain.
* I wasn't aware that the Star Wars POP! figures came with little bases. I assume these are supposed to help keep the figures more stable since they're bobble-heads, unlike most other POP! figures. They're really sharp looking, though, and the Tie Fighter Pilot stands securely on top of it.
* The only thing I'm not wild about with this POP! is the way the chest panel was handled. Since the head has to move due to the bobbling feature (which probably makes these legally distinct under licensing contracts from the toys that Hasbro releases) chest panel is attached to the head via the oxygen tube and floats over the chest. It would look fine except for the fact that the cord on my figure is very uneven. It's tough to see in this picture but the panel is angled about 45 degrees to the right.
If you're a huge fan of TIE Fighter Pilots, I have reviewed the Star Wars Black Original Trilogy version: TIE Pilot
