POP! Review: Mr. Bean #592 from POP! Television by Funko
Height: 4 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars
* I love the overall look of this POP! Funko did a great job capturing the body language of Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean simply with the positioning of the arm, feet, and the teddy holding hand. Just the fact that we have a Mr. Bean POP! makes me giddy.
* I often comment about how amazing it is that Funko can actually convey unique likenesses through their simple stylized figures. Looking at the headsculpt you can see how the little things like the brow lines, the eyebrows, and the mole definitely give this a true likeness of the character despite being so stylized. It is quite impressive.
* Mr. Bean is clad in his famous tweed jacket and red tie. It's a great looking outfit and should be instantly recognizable to fans. Passerby who are uninitiated into the ways of Bean may wonder why you have a POP! of an English professor holding a teddy bear.
* Teddy! Mr. Bean's stalwart (and often abused) companion looks great. I love the little button eyes! The presence of Teddy definitely helps to make the POP! recognizable to more casual observers.
* There are definitely a few errant paint spots on here, although they're mostly in the back. Teddy also has a very messy blot of paint on the back of one of his paws.
This is the first Mr. Bean product I've reviewed. For more Television inspired POP! vinyls, check out the following:
