Action Figure Review: Leaky Lindsay from Garbage Pail Kids Really Big Mystery Minis by Funko

  I've covered two of the figures from Funko's Garbage Pail Kids line and I know I'm going to be covering quite a few more so I'll keep my intro brief. Today I'm looking at Leaky Lindsay, a girl who definitely has a few sinus problems. Yuck! There's snot dripping down her nose and all over her new clothes! Garbage Pail Kids seem to come in three distinct styles: Gross-out, monstrous, or attitude. Lindsay is definitely a gross-out figure. Interested in seeing if there more to this figure than meets the eye? Then dig around after the break and find out...

The Facts:

Height: 3 1/4 inches

Articulation: Swivel shoulders and a swivel head.

Accessories: None

Non-Scalper Price: $8-$9

 The Positives:

*I really do appreciate how gross this figure is. The only thing that would have been better than a figure covered in mucus and actively dripping snot from the nostrils would be if the snot was made from translucent green plastic. Icky! I do like how there is some nice color variation in the snot. Perhaps these are various boogers and things hanging around.
 The Negatives:

* Leaky Linday's hair is nicely sculpted, but that's not what I'm considering a negative. What is a bit upsetting is that her hair is so heavy that she tends to tip over backwards. She's very difficult to get standing upright. Considering that most of these figures will probably be purchased as decorative minis for display, I find balance to be crucial here.
  This is a minifigure with a really runny nose. My guess is this either repulses you or you find it pretty funny. Leaky Lindsay's probably not one of the figures I would have picked out on my own but since I bought a case I ended up with her. I do find it funny, though, and of course she is a memorable Garbage Pail Kid. The snot looks....snotty? The effect works and thought you'll have a bit of a time getting her to stand, she's still pretty fun. I'm giving her a Good rating overall.
