Funko releases Pop! vinyl figures for Batman Beyond, Harley Quinn, and Nightwing. Click the jump to see more.
My general experience with Funko has mostly been eye-rolling. This toy company enjoys taking some of our favorite pop culture characters and make them cutesy, or to borrow a term from the anime community, chibi-ize them. Well, at least in reference to the Pop! line of vinyl figures they’ve been putting out.
The news today is that another set of Bat-universe characters are set for their chibification. We have Terry McGinnis as Batman, more commonly referred to as Batman Beyond, Harley Quinn, and Nightwing.
Take a look:
Though, I was never fond of Funko’s take on our favorite DC characters, I’m digging the Batman Beyond one. Maybe it’s because he actually has a mouth. Also, although Darkseid isn’t really related to the Bats, his sculpt was probably the best of the bunch.
These figures will be available August 15th.
