#1024: Daenerys Targaryen




Today is Day 4 of Westeros Week (though for today’s review, it might more aptly be named Essos Week). In lieu of an actual intro, I’m just gonna write out the character’s full name. Yes, today I’ll be taking a look at Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Lady Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Mhysa, Breaker of Chains, the Unburnt, and Mother of Dragons. Get all that? Good, let’s get on to the figure.


Daenerys2Daenerys was released in the first series of Funko’s Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection. This is the first of the two Daeneryses that Funko released in this style. She was figure 5 in the set, making her the second to last figure in the first series, chronologically. Daenerys is based on her Dothraki garb from the latter half of Season 1. While it lacks some of the elegance that she’s become more known for as of late, it’s a pretty solid look, and comes from the period in the show where she really kicked off her main character arc. The figure stands about 5 ½ inches tall and has 24 points of articulation. While her sculpt doesn’t have quite as much detail work as some of the other figures in the line, Daenerys still exhibits some pretty awesome sculpted work. She’s got one of the better hair sculpts the line gave us (it’s even shaped to sit nicely on her shoulders and chest), and her various garb all has the appropriate texturing. The face isn’t quite Emilia Clarke. You can tell who it’s meant to be, but there’s something just off about it. Daenerys’s hands are both sculpted as though they’re meant to hold something, but as I’ll touch on when I talk about the accessories, she doesn’t actually have anything to hold. With that in mind, I kind of would have liked to get more pre-posed hands, allowing for a bit more expressiveness. It’s not something I can really hold against the figure, though. Daenerys’s paintwork is overall pretty decent, but there are a couple of issues, mostly to do with the face. The paint on the face (and the rest of the areas of exposed skin, for that matter) is rather on the thick side, which makes the sculpt feel a bit softer, and she also has some issues with the application of her eyes and brow, which look just slightly wonky on my figure. Nothing terrible, but noticeable nonetheless. The rest of the paint is pretty solid, though, and the accent work seems to work particularly well on this figure. For accessories, Daenerys includes her dragon Drogon. Drogon can plug into Dany’s shoulder (via the rather obvious holes around the joint), and looks pretty decent perched there. Technically, this Dany wouldn’t have Drogon, of course, but I’m not really that bugged by it.


When I first started collecting the GoT figures, I didn’t really plan on getting a Daenerys. It’s not that I dislike her, but she was someone that I took a while to warm up to, and I really was trying to draw the line somewhere. While I was on vacation this year, I spotted this figure at Yesterday’s Fun, and managed to resist the urge to buy her on three separate occasions. Unfortunately, I mentioned this resistance to Super Awesome Girlfriend, Tim, and Jill, and they wouldn’t let me go home until I bought her. They’re kind of a terrible influence are they? Daenerys is a pretty decent figure, though I can’t say she’s one of the best from the line.


#1023: Tyrion Lannister




All hail the half-man!  For the third entry in Westeros Week, I’ll be taking a look at everybody’s favorite pint-sized Lannister, Tyrion!  Tyrion is probably as close as the story will ever get to having a clear cut protagonist, being one of the few characters to get a consistent level of screen time throughout the course of the series.  He’s also one of the most consistently enjoyable characters, and one of the few prominent characters to have anything resembling a moral compass.  And he slaps Joffery a lot, which never ceases to amuse.  I’m getting distracted.  Let’s look at the figure!


Tyrion2Tyrion Lannister was released in the first series of Funko’s Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection.  He’s figure 2 in the set.  There are actually three different versions of Tyrion, all of which make use of the same number.  The basic Tyrion depicted him in his battle armor from the end of season 1, and the SDCC variant of that gave us Tyrion from the second season’s Battle of Blackwater, which was the same as the basic figure but with a new, scarred head.  The figure I’m looking at today, however, is the Walgreens-exclusive Hand of the King Tyrion, based on his appearance when he took on the role in Season 2.  I prefer Tyrion to be more of a planner and less of a fighter, so this was definitely the look I wanted.  The figure stands about 4 ½ inches tall (Peter Dinklage is 4’ 5”, so the figure seems to have gotten the height down pretty well) and he has 26 points of articulation.  Like Ned, Tyrion’s elbow movement is incredibly limited.  Must be a Hand of the King thing.  Maybe that’s why they all die (well, okay, not all)!  Fortunately, the limitation isn’t quite as big a deal with Tyrion as it was with Ned.  Generally speaking, I think Tyrion may have one of the better sculpts in the Legacy Collection.  The likeness is definitely there (I suppose the hair could be a touch longer to be the appropriate length for Season 2, but that’s super minor).  The detailing on the clothing is once again superb.  Each little crease and stitch is there, and you can even tell the difference between the different types of materials, which is quite impressive.  Also, Tyrion might be the first figure I’ve looked at in this line where his shoulders aren’t too narrow, which is definitely a plus.  Tyrion’s paintwork is pretty solidly handled.  Most of the base color work is pretty clean (excepting the quite noticeable slop on the edge of his collar) and there’s plenty of great accent work to sell all the various layers of the sculpt.  Even his painted stubble doesn’t look too bad.  I do wish the Hand of the King pin looked a bit less gummy, but that’s pretty minor.  Tyrion includes a dagger, which can be held in the sheath on his belt.


Tyrion was picked up from Yesterday’s Fun while I was on vacation last month.  This was actually a figure I was planning to get anyway, so when I found him there, I was pretty happy.  Tyrion’s probably one of the best figures that the line had to offer, though I’m not really sure why this version ended up as an exclusive, rather than the default.  But hey, I’ve got the figure, so that’s all that matters.


#1022: White Walker




As awful as the characters in Game of Thrones may get, the show likes to devote at least a portion of every season to reminding us that, no matter how bad things may seem, there’s perpetually a greater threat in the horizon in the form of the White Walkers. Whoever may be left standing after after all the warring factions have settled will still have to deal with these ugly suckers. So, for my second entry in Westeros Week, I’ll be taking a look at one of their number. Let’s see how the White Walker fares!


WhiteWalker2The White Walker was released in the first series of Funko’s Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection. He’s figure 3 in the line-up, which weirds me out for some reason. He feels like a 6 to me, but I don’t know why. There were two versions of the Walker available: regular and glow-in-the-dark. Mine is the regular. We’ve seen a few White Walkers over the course of the show, most of which share a number of common traits (excepting the Night King, of course), but they all have a bit of their own flair. This particular figure is based on the White Walker that attacks Sam in the Season 2 finale, which is probably the closest look we’ve really gotten at one of them. The figure stands 6 ½ inches tall and has 28 points of articulation. Sculpturally, he’s a little skinnier than the Walker we saw on screen, especially in the arms and shoulders, but he’s not terribly far off. The level of detail on this guy is quite impressive, even among the other Legacy figures I’ve looked at. There’s no part of this guy that doesn’t have some bit of sculpted texturing. His skin is rough and decaying and his clothing is worn and decrepit. If there’s one part of this sculpt I’m not 100% sold on, it’s the hair. It’s a separate piece, glued in place, like a lot of the hair in this line. However, this time, it feels like a wig, not just because of the obvious connection, but also because it feels a bit under-detailed and artificial when compared to the rest of the figure. It also flows outward at an odd angle, which makes getting the head into a pose where the hair looks natural quite difficult. The paintwork on the Walker continues the same trends seen with the sculpt. The hair once again sticks out, being rather starkly contrasting, especially right at the edge where it meets the head. The rest of the paint, however, does a wonderful job of highlighting and accenting all of the cool sculpted textures on the sculpt, making the figure look quite lifelike. The White Walker includes a spear, which fits pretty well in his hands. I had a bit of difficulty getting my figure to hold it, and noticed that one of his wrists was almost broken in the process, so be careful there.


I picked up the White Walker at the same time as Ned. I really hadn’t intended to get this guy, since the White Walkers don’t really “wow” me on the show, at least in terms of design. But, he was cheap, and I didn’t have him, so there it is. I’m actually pretty happy with this guy, so I’m glad I found one for a deal, or else I never would have gotten him.

(Yes, I know this last picture is off.  Robb never fought a Walker, but I didn’t have Jon, so Robb served as a stand-in)


#1021: Ned Stark




Remember when I had FOUR Game of Thrones figures and that was all sorts of crazy excessive? Four? A whole four? Hey, guess what? Yeah, there’s more of ‘em now. Without further ado, I’m officially kicking off Westeros Week! Let’s get this thing started!

One of the best known things about Game of Thrones is the rather high mortality rate amongst its stars. And what better way to get that idea across from the very start than casting perennial dead guy Sean Bean in one of the lead roles for the first season? Ned Stark’s name might as well have been Toast Stark. Typical of many of Sean Bean’s characters, despite Ned’s unfortunate demise during the show’s first season, he’s still one of the show’s most memorable characters. So, unsurprisingly, when Funko started making figures, Ned was one of the very first.


NedStark2Ned Stark was released in Series 1 of Funko’s Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection, as figure #6, which makes him chronologically the last figure in the series. The figure is 6 inches tall and he has 26 points of articulation. Ned’s just a smidge taller than his son Robb, which is true to real life; Sean Bean is an inch taller than Richard Madden. Ned’s appearance is based on his look during his time serving as Hand of the King, specifically in the episode “You Win or You Die,” which is a pretty pivotal episode for Ned. I know a lot of people had wanted a Winterfell Ned, which is probably the slightly more interesting look. That said, this is Ned’s basic look for a good chunk of his time on the show, so I can hardly fault Funko’s choice. The whole Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, Ned included. His sculpt is pretty strong, at least on par Robb’s. At first glance, it seems like Ned shares a number of pieces with Robb, but after close examination, I think the only piece that’s the same is the skirt of his tunic. The level of detail, especially on the clothing is once again very impressive. The stitching and the patterned textures look really nice. As far as build, it does seem to me that Ned is a bit on the skinny side, and his shoulders seem a little narrow. In addition, his hair seems a bit thicker than it was on the show, which doesn’t really help the issue of the narrow shoulders. That said, the overall appearance is a pretty good rendition of Sean Bean as Ned. You can definitely tell who it’s supposed to be. Ned’s sheath for his sword is a separate piece, glued in place. Well, it’s supposed to be, anyway. Mine was rattling around in the bottom of the package when I got the figure. It’s nothing major, as a small spot of glue is all that’s needed to fix it, but it’s still a little frustrating to have to do such things myself. Ned’s paintwork is pretty well done. The clothes have some very nice accent work to bring out the sculpt’s details. There’s a bit of slop here and there, especially on his Hand insignia and around his mouth/beard, but the overall appearance isn’t bad at all. Ned is packed with both a standard broadsword and his family’s ancestral Valeryan Steel sword Ice. The standard sword isn’t bad, and can be sheathed on his belt. Ice itself isn’t a bad piece (though it does seem a bit comically large), however, Ned’s limited elbow movement means he can’t really hold it, even to do the signature “Winter is Coming” pose. It’s also too bad we couldn’t get Ice’s wolf pelt sheath, but I guess that would have been too much.


After my first round of watching Game of Thrones, I liked Ned, but not enough that I felt the need to buy his action figure. Then two things happened. First, I started rewatching the show with Tim and Jill, and realized I liked Ned quite a bit. Then, I stopped by the closing Movie Stop near me (which has since officially closed), and Ned was one of the three GoT figures they had left, so I got him for a decent deal. Ned has his flaws, but he’s a pretty solid figure. It’s a shame we didn’t get more of the Starks.


#0989: Jaime Lannister




What’s this? Four Game of Thrones figures? Yikes, this is getting bad. Three’s company, but four’s a crowd. Or something like that. So far, I’ve looked at two Starks and Brienne, who’s worked for both the Starks and their main antagonists the Lannisters. Today, I’ll be looking at a member of the latter house, and one who’s even had lots of direct interaction with Brienne. Yes, it’s the Kingslayer himself, Jaime Lannister!


JaimeLann2Jaime was released in Series 2 of Funko’s Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection. He’s figure number 7, which makes him numerically the first figure in Series 2. The figure stands right about 6 inches tall (he’s just a smidge shorter than Brienne, as he should be) and he has 26 points of articulation. In terms of joint movement, Jaime’s much more similar to Robb than to Brienne. No stuck joints on this one! Yay! Jaime is presented here in his Kingsguard attire. He’s clearly meant to be a Season 1 Jaime, which we can tell due to the length of Jaime’s hair. Oh yeah, and there’s one other tell, but I can’t remember what it is. Can anyone give me a hand? Well, Jaime sure can’t, since he lost his dominant one in Season 3, which was before he re-donned his Kingsguard armor again. Jaime’s sculpt is incredibly detailed, and it’s a pretty fantastic recreation of the Kingsguard armor from the show. I particularly like the level of depth to all of the details and layers, which make him look like he’s wearing all of the different pieces of armor and such. In terms of facial likeness, I think Jaime is the best work I’ve seen on one of these figures. There’s absolutely no denying that this is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, through and through. It’s also worth noting, that, unlike the other three figures I’ve looked at from this line, Jaime’s hair has very fine detailing and is nowhere near as chunky as the others. The only real flaw with the figure’s sculpt is actually just with my figure: my figure has two right forearms. It’s not a super major issue (and, in fact, it took me a little while to notice it at all), but it does sort of highlight Funko’s consistent problems with quality control.  As detailed as Jaime’s sculpt is, he needs a paint job to match. Fortunately, this figure has such a paint job. All of the details of the armor and clothing are painted the right colors, and each bit has its own very nice accent work, to help give Jaime that sufficiently worn-in look (but not quite as worn-in as the likes of Robb and Brienne). The head gets a very nice paint job as well, with eyebrows that aren’t too large, eyes that aren’t off-center, and probably the most successful attempt at five o’clock shadow that I’ve seen on a smaller scale figure. He also has just the slightest bit of gloss on his hair, which is surprisingly good at making it look like actual hair. Jaime includes his sword, which can be stowed in his scabbard, or held in his hand, provided you’re willing to do a bit of modding work to separate his thumb and forefinger. It would be nice not to have to do that, but I suppose it’s simple enough.


Jaime was picked up at the same time as Brienne, which I felt was appropriate. As with Brienne, he was slightly marked down, due to MovieStop being in the process of closing. On the show, Jaime is a surprisingly likeable character. Likewise, his figure is a surprisingly enjoyable one, and is certainly a lot more fun than I’d expected him to be based on the pictures I’d seen. I’m very happy to have picked up this guy.


#0988: Brienne of Tarth




Okay, guys, I gotta confess: I’ve been roped in by this whole Game of Thrones thing. Action figures and all. I get one action figure, it’s no big deal. Two? Well, maybe they’re keeping each other company. A third? That’s when I’m in trouble. So far, the two GoT figures I’ve looked at have both been members of House Stark, my personal favorite side in the great game. While today’s figure isn’t strictly from House Stark, Brienne of Tarth has quite a few ties to the Starks, and she’s even currently in the service of Sansa Stark in the show. She’s also genuinely one of the coolest characters on the show, and who can turn down an action figure of a character like that? Not me. Never me. That’s kind of why the site exists….


Brienne2Brienne is from the second series of Funko’s Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection, where she’s officially number 8 in the line (which places her second in the second series line-up). The figure stands just over 6 inches tall and she has 26 points of articulation. Or, she’s supposed to have 26 points of articulation, anyway. Yep, though I managed to avoid the notorious stuck joints of the Legacy Collection on my first two GoT figures, I was not quite so lucky with Brienne. Her neck, left shoulder, and waist joints were all totally seized right out of the box. Through use of alternating freezing and heating, I was eventually able to free up the neck and shoulder (the shoulder actually finally freed up while I was writing this review, two weeks after I purchased the figure), but I’ve had no luck with the waist joint, and I don’t want to force it for fear of it snapping. On the plus side, the only joint that is truly stuck isn’t one that ruins the figure’s playability, but it’s still annoying that this was such a common thing with the line. Brienne is based on her early appearance on the show, when she was serving under Renly Baratheon and then when she was tasked with getting Jaime Lannister to King’s Landing. It’s not quite as cool a look as her more recent armor, but it was still current at the time of this figure’s release, and it is admittedly more colorful. The sculpt on this figure is a bit frustrating. While her height is correct for the 6’3” Gwendolin Christie, her build is somewhat off. She’s definitely a bit scrawny for Brienne, but I think the biggest issue is with her shoulders. They’re too narrow (in fact, the torso as a whole seems rather undersized), which creates an optical illusion that makes her head look too big and by extension makes the rest of her body look too small. I genuinely thought she was just too small in general until I stood her next to my Captain Phasma and determined that they were in fact the same height, so I really think it’s those shoulders. So, issues with the proportions aside, how’s the rest of the sculpting? Actually not bad. While I’m not she’s quite on par with Robb, the detailing on her armor is very sharp, and the face bears more than a passing resemblance to Christie as Brienne. The hair’s a little thick, but not too terribly so. Brienne’s paintwork is generally pretty good. The armor in particular gets the best work, with some nice solid colors and some tremendous accent work to offset them. Sadly, some of the areas of her clothing are without any accenting, which looks a little out of place. There are a few spots of slop here and there, most noticeably at the bottom of her jaw, but her paintwork is very clean otherwise. Brienne is armed with a broadsword. Since this is a season 2/season 3 Brienne, it’s just a nameless sword, not Oathkeeper. It’s still a cool sword, even if it doesn’t have some fancy name.


Ever since getting Robb and Arya, I’ve been eyeing up the other figures in the line, with Brienne being right at the top of the list. I ended up finding Brienne at my local MovieStop, which, thanks to Hastings filing for bankruptcy, is currently having a sale to clear out their inventory. This allowed me to get Brienne for a reasonable (if not amazing) price, rather than a slightly marked up price. If I’m honest, Brienne’s the weakest of the GoT figures I’ve picked up. It’s mostly the shoulder thing. However, she’s not a bad figure at all, and the coolness of the character certainly helps to make up for some of the figure’s shortcomings.


#0973: Arya Stark




A reviewer believes it is time to right a review of a figure of a girl. Wait, that doesn’t sound quite right. Sorry, I was trying to be clever and topical, but I’m not sure it worked. Anyway, I’m continuing the Game of Thrones bit from yesterday, looking at another figure from Funko’s Legacy Collection. Today, I’ll looking at No One. Wait, scratch that, I’m actually looking at Arya Stark, the youngest Stark daughter. Thought she was No One, but I just got the notification of the change! Sorry, it’s hard enough keeping up with everyone’s initial names, and that’s without throwing name changes into the mix. Let’s just look at the Arya figure!


Arya2Like her brother Robb, Arya was released in the second series of the Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection. She’s figure #9, which puts her right in the middle of the second series. The figure stands about 5 ¼ inches tall and has 26 points of articulation. She seems a bit tall when compared to Robb. There’s only about a half-inch difference between the two, which going by the actor’s heights isn’t incredibly off, but it’s enough off that it bugs me slightly. I found the articulation on Arya to be a bit stiffer than on Robb, but I still haven’t run into any impossibly tight joints or breakage just yet. That being said, I’m a bit leery of the wrist joints; they seem a bit spongey on my figure. I also really wish she could get her knees into a straighter position.  As it is, she’s always got a slight crouch going on. Arya is depicted here in the look she started sporting following her father’s death, when she was attempting to pass herself off as a boy (not that she fooled that many people). It’s a good look for the character, and it was pretty much her only look for a good three seasons of the show’s run, so it was pretty well chosen. Though it appears Gentle Giant Studios put a lot of effort into this figure’s sculpt, Arya didn’t turn out quite as well as her brother. Her head definitely feels a bit too big, and the proportions of the body seem a bit too elongated for Arya. The likeness on the head is also a bit weird. From a head-on view, it’s a pretty good Maisie Williams likeness. However, from certain angles, the sculpt becomes rather cartoony, and begins to look more like a caricature than a real person. The hair doesn’t really help matters, being far thicker than it should be, and sitting rather far back on the head. On the plus side, the level of detailing on the rest of the figure is superb. I especially love the texture and stitching of the vest, which genuinely looks like a real piece of clothing.  Arya’s paintwork isn’t bad, but there are a few issues. Like Robb, the best work is one the clothing, which has some very nice accent work, and it looks appropriately grimy. The same can’t be said of her face and hands, which are surprisingly un-grimed. The paint on those bits isn’t awful, but there are some spots (most notably the eyebrows) which could have been handled a bit better, and end up hiding some of the strengths of the sculpts. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the big chunk of oddly misapplied paint on the left side of Arya’s neck. Obviously, this is a one off issue with my figure, but it’s definitely very annoying and makes poor Arya look like she’s got the plague or something. Arya’s one accessory is her sword Needle (given to her by her half-brother Jon Snow). It’s a pretty good recreation of the prop on the show (some people have complained about the color of the handle; it’s a bit bright, but it doesn’t bug me). On the show, Arya is left-handed, and that’s definitely the hand that’s meant to hold the sword. It’s not as easy to get her to hold it as it was to get Robb holding his, but I managed alright.


I picked up Arya at the same time as Robb. Arya’s been one of my favorite characters since the very first episode of the show, and I definitely wanted her in action figure form (the uncertainty of her inclusion in the upcoming 3 ¾ inch line is a big part of why I’m still not sold on those figures). Arya’s not quite as strong a figure as Robb. That said, Robb was a fantastic figure, which not every figure can be. Even with her flaws, Arya is still a pretty good figure, and she’s a nice representation of one of the show’s best characters.


#0972: Robb Stark




Hey guys! Ethan’s found a new thing! Yep, after hemming and hawing and doing my best to steer clear of the Game of Thrones craze for the last six years, I finally gave in and started watching the show two months ago. It’s been a bumpy ride, but I’m all caught up, and I’ve overall really enjoyed the show. Now, if you’re even slightly familiar with this site, you probably already know what that means: I had to have action figures. Fortunately for me, there are a few different options. I opted to go for a couple of figures from Funko’s Legacy Collection. By far, my favorite corner of the Game of Thrones mythos is the Stark house (it’s probably the familiarity of the name. Hard to break out of old habits, right?). Today, I’ll be looking at the sadly ill-fated King of the North, Robb Stark!


Robb2Robb Stark was released as part of the second (and it would appear final) series of the Game of Thrones: Legacy Collection. He’s figure #11, making him the second to last figure in the line chronologically. The figure stands just shy of 6 inches tall (making him just about the right height to be a 1:12 version of the 5’10” Richard Madden) and he has 26 points of articulation. The Legacy Collection was somewhat notorious for stuck joints, but I seem to have lucked out with my Robb. None of his joints were stuck out of the package, and the range of motion on all of his various joints is pretty decent. This figure depicts Robb in his battlefield garb from after he becomes the King of the North. While it’s far from Robb’s only look from the show, it’s probably the one he spent the most time in, and it’s certainly his coolest.  The sculpts for all of the Legacy figures were handled by the fine folks at Gentle Giant Studios, who are known for producing some high-quality work. Robb is no exception, sporting a pretty phenomenal sculpt. The level of detail on the clothing is particularly amazing. Every article is full of a whole tone of texture work, and the cape, straps, belt, and several pieces of his armor are all (non-removable) add-on parts, which allow the figure to have a really great sense of depth. The head is probably the weakest point of the sculpt. Not that it’s bad, but the details aren’t quite as sharp as the rest of the figure, and there’s something just slightly off about the likeness. He definitely resembles Madden, but he’s not spot-on. The paintwork on Robb kind of matches up with what we saw on the sculpt. The work on the body is really strong, with lots of really cool small detail work to help accent the sculpt. In particular, I really love the splattering of mud along the bottom of Robb’s cape; it really adds a fun touch of realism. The head is where things fall down again. Once again, it’s not horrible. There’s some pretty decent accent work on the hair, which is certainly nice. However, the skin tone is a little flat, the eyes are just the slightest bit off, and his beard and lips are incredibly sloppy. None of it’s enough to ruin the figure, but it is a bit frustrating. Robb was packed with his sword (which, unlike some of the swords on the show, is nameless). It fits very nicely in either of his hands, and can also be stored in his scabbard, though the fit is a bit loose.


Robb was ordered from Amazon, making use of a gift card I got for graduation (hey, he’s a sound investment. Dude was the King of the North. The whole cardinal direction!) I actually almost picked up Robb a few weeks ago at a Walmart, but ended up talking myself out of it. Good thing too, since I ended up getting him for half of his original price. Given the quality of this figure, that’s a pretty fantastic deal. When I started watching Game of Thrones, I was already aware of Robb’s fate. As such, I swore I wouldn’t get attached to him. That didn’t really work, because he was just too cool not to like. In fact, he became one of my favorites, which is why he was one of the first figures I picked up. This figure does a great job of capturing the coolness of the character, and he’s just a really fun figure all-around.
