Funko's POP! Marvel Series 2 offers decent variety

Dec 06 // Scarecroodle

Having a very hard time taking Doctor Doom seriously right now...

Funko's next POP! series will include Beast, Dark Phoenix, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Ghost Rider, and Silver Surfer. Series 2 is slated to release in January.

While I've never been all that into the POP! line, it's hard not to respect the figures that were done well. The Beast is incredibly adorable despite its relative simplicity. However, the far greater work would have have to be Ghost Rider whose design and detail really helps it stand out (pop, even!) in this line. The Doctor Doom looks really weird at first glance and the bizarre proportions may turn off some people. However, the inherent dorkiness of the design (it looks like he's wearing over-sized glasses!) gives him his own brand of cuteness.

The other three are more decidedly so-so. The Silver Surfer gets something of a free pass for being on his board. He's going to stand out by default like that. However, Dark Phoenix and Deadpool are just unbelievably bland, greatly resembling any number of previous releases. Both exemplify the aspects of the line of which I'm less than fond.

How about you guys, though? Do any of these catch your eye?
