Figure Fridays! Review: Rajon Rondo POP Vinyl figure
When it came out locally (in the Philippines) during the 2012 Toy con, there were only 5 players available from the NBA line. Blake, Lebron, Linsanity, DRose and Melo. It was sad that Toy Kingdom managed to get the complete sets from all the other series like the Avengers, Disney and music figures but not for the NBA line.
However, I finally got lucky and spotted one in greenhills at SRP. Upon checking, here is the Review:
Sculpt and details
Similar to most funko POP figures, it features an oversized square head and generic body. All NBA series funko have the same mold: Basketball on the right and articulated arm on the left. Unlike the other mindstyle NBA figure series (Coolrain x NBA) Wherein details were given, particularly on armbands and shoe endorsements.
For a jersey as simple as the celtics, I am surprised that funko had a hard time making a decent paint job. There are paint splatters and poor decal applications in the jersey and shoes. There seems to be a lot of paint chipping off or poorly applied as they say.
There are 2 points of articulation, the neck and the left shoulder. Since the ball prohibits the right arm from any movement. That's about it.
It just stands there, looking cute especially when paired with other POP vinyl figures. It does make a nice conversation piece.
It goes for 500 Php or 10 bucks. Do not go for it when the prices jump to 15$.
