* These are simple, stylized vinyl figures with no articulation. They sure look nice on display, though. The MOTU Vinyl SODA line looks amazing on a shelf together and Man-At-Arms is an excellent addition to a line that's short on heroes.
* I love the cans these come in! The soda can design is so
incredibly cool and makes for a rather unique display piece on a shelf. Man-At-Arms soda would probably be something very classic, like a very strong cola with a lot of flavor, maybe less sweet and more spice? The can displays all of the
expected labels while the back shows off the figure and includes all of
the legal info, etc. The top of the can separates so you could use the
can to store trinkets as well, and it's even sculpted to look like the
top of a soda can. It's made from a much more durable metal than your
average soda can, too, so it's quite a nice collectible.
* Inside the can is a round, sturdy cardboard disc. It's kind of like a
POG, though a bit larger. On the front is a picture of Man-At-Arms while the back has the edition size (1/ 6,250).
* The sculpt is really cool on Man-At-Arms. While the art on the can shows the Filmation Man-At-Arms art this toy is a mixture. The head has a mustache like the cartoon but the body is definitely based on the armor of the vintage toy. The paintwork is neat and clean and there's a lot of detail on Man-At-Arms compared with some of the other figures in the line.
* Here's a closer look at Man-At-Arms' head sculpt. I love the look of his eyebrows and his mustache! There's a lot of detail on his helmet, too.
* And here's a close up of Man-At-Arms' cool battle staff and his armor. Seriously, this is nice work for a stylized vinyl figure!
* It might be tough to see from a picture but the bottom of the can came dented to the point that it's tough to get the can to stand up properly. I had to use something to straighten it out and while it stands fine now it's still dented. This one came straight from Funko, too, and it was in a small cardboard box inside of a shipping box, so the problem had to have occurred before it was shipped.
The Vinyl Soda line has been very consistent and Man-At-Arms is another Great addition. I love the Filmation styled head mixed with the vintage toy's asymmetrical armor. Funko is doing a really nice job on these and so far as I can tell this seems to be the most popular new product range they've put out since POP! vinyls themselves. These are way cooler than some of their other endeavors for sure. What do you think about Vinyl SODA? Are you collecting this series?
