* Here's a quick comparison between the Chase Variant Trap Jaw (left) and the standard Trap Jaw dispenser (right). They're same dispenser but the Chase Variant does have a sticker denoting it as such on the box and, of course, the dispensers are different colors. The variant has lighter skin, a silver jaw, and a lavender stem versus the black stem of the standard dispenser.
* The whole gimmick of this line is that these are fairly standard Pez dispensers with Funko POP! vinyl heads, so this looks just like the POP! Trap Jaw (which I have not yet reviewed on here). It's a pretty good likeness of the character done in the cutesy POP! aesthetic. I especially like the eyebrows and the menacing work on his metal jaw.
* Trap Jaw's sculpt is even cooler due to the presence of the loop on top of his helmet. This was included on the vintage figure and was intended as a way for the character to essentially zip-line down into battle. I love that Funko included it but, darn, doesn't zip-lining by hanging from your helmet seem like a surefire way to break your neck? Don't try that at home, kids!
* Trap Jaw's dispenser body is exactly the same as any other Pez dispenser I've ever seen. It's light purple, I'm assuming to match the lighter purple color of Trap Jaw's boots, and it holds a roll of candy. Seriously, it's a Pez dispenser. What more can I say about it?
* Trap Jaw includes a pack of Pez (assorted fruit flavored). Why does he only come with one when you usually get three with a dispenser? I guess it's because these are intended more as collectibles rather than really intended to be used as actual candy dispensers. The nice thing is you can take these out of the box and put them back in, making them collector friendly. They display nicely in the box, so that's how I'm keeping them.

Funko POP Pez!!!!! Only in the year 2020 would we see something this out of the ordinary. Love it.ReplyDelete
I remember when the Star Wars Pez Dispensers first came out in 1997. That seemed like a huge deal at the time! People thought they'd be putting kids through college with those things!Delete
