Action Figure Review: Elsa, Marshmallow, & Olaf from Frozen from Pop! Disney by Funko
Height: 4 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
Height: 5 1/4 inches
Height: 3 1/2 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
Non-Scalper Price: $30 for the set (Shop around, though: I paid $15 for mine)
* Elsa has quickly become one of my favorite film characters and I really like how Funko translated her into Pop! form. Even with the minimal facial expressions of your average Pop!, they still managed to give her some character through her eyelashes and windswept hair.
* Elsa hair is really nicely done. Not only does it have a number of little snowflakes sculpted into it but it's also covered with glitter. It looks great and really adds a lot of oomph to the set.
* I really like Elsa's pose, particularly the snowflake she's conjuring in her right hand. Her dress looks really cool (with some glitter it) and she's got one leg stepping out from underneath. Does this seem like appropriate attire for someone living in an ice palace on a snowy mountain? Considering that the cold never bothered Elsa anyway, yes. Yes it does.
* The train of Elsa's dress (or is this a cloak?) is molded in a translucent blue plastic to reflect the sheer material of the garment. What a cool idea! This piece is also covered in glitter, too.
* Wow! Marshmallow is incredible! Check out this face! The mouth is actually recessed and the eyes are sunken in quite a bit. This guy is just awesome. I love the idea of Elsa using a giant ice construct and I can imagine this guy popping up in a game of Dungeons & Dragons.
* Check out those icicles on Marshmallow's back. Landing on his back is a Mortal Kombat styled fatality just waiting to happen.
* I just love how large and hulking Marshmallow is! While it's not accurate to the film (where he's much larger) it definitely looks imposing next and gets the point across when he's standing next to a regular sized Pop! I have nothing negative to say about Marshmallow. All good things, all good things.
Isn't this guy just adorable? How can you look at this face and be upset? Olaf is like instant smile. He's the answer to drug abuse. Feeling down and low? Just look at this little guy and you'll feel better in no time. This is such a charming toy! Plus, word on the street is that he's also a love expert.
* Gosh, throw in Olaf's body and arms and he's even funnier. This little guy just cracks me up. He's definitely more "detailed" and seemingly less stylized than other Pop! figures, but I think it works.
* I love the work on Elsa's hair for the most part (especially the glitter) but the paint lines between her hair and her face are a bit sloppy.
* There's a weird little speck on Olaf's nose. It looks like some sort of paint chip. I tried to pretend it was a spot where Sven attempted to take a bit of Olaf's nose, but I couldn't: This is just a quality issue.
I haven't reviewed any other Frozen stuff on here. I have reviewed one other Pop! Disney figure, though: POP! Disney by Funko Jack Skellington as the Pumpkin King from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
