Tom Servo POP! vinyl and now I'm finally getting the chance to check out Crow. Apparently Tom and Crow didn't ship on the same day. Now that they're both out, why not order them for the MST3K fan in your life who needs something special for Christmas? It's a much easier Christmas gift to give than letting them decide who lives and dies! Let's take a look at Crow T. Robot after the break...
Height: 4 3/8ths inches
Articulation: Swivel neck
Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars
* Crow looks great and is instantly recognizable. The distinctive crest made from a hockey faceguard is really well done as is the shape of his head. It is odd to see Crow with his mouth closed, though. By the way, the real Crow's mouth is made from a plastic toy bowling pin that has been cut in half. Pretty cool, huh?
* Crow's arms are very detailed and feature some black paint apps to help bring out the details. Nicer work here! The newer arms from season 11 are more complex, featuring the parts from two desk lamps per arm instead of just one! The hands are larger, too.
* This version of Crow has a lower torso, legs, and feet since now, in the new season, Crow sometimes walks around during the movies. Crow's legs are built much like his legs. His feet look like larger versions of his hands, too.
* Funko included a clear plastic display base with Crow to help him stand up. From my experience he really doesn't need it so I may use it with a previous figure that does. I have the Gold Dress Harley Quinn from Hot Topic but I accidentally her away her stand when I purchased her, not knowing it was in there.
* Crow's eyes look fine at a distance but up close you can see some fairly messy paintwork on them. The yellow doesn't seem to fully cover the eyes.
This is the first Crow T. Robot toy I've reviewed but I have reviewed other POP! Television figures, including:
