Funko’s Rock Candy Lady Thor Figure

No, I don’t collect that many of these figures, despite it seeming that I might. Right now I’ve less than a handful of them, largely because I don’t find most of them all that interesting and some that I do find interesting are way overpriced, such as the female stars for the Game of Thrones. Seriously, sixty to a hundred dollars for a five point five inch figure is simply crazy!

I spotted this Lady Thor (aka Jane Foster in Marvel Comics) figure in a local comics shop that happens to carry a wide selection of the Funko figures. Now no one locally carries them all, as there are thousands, and the ones I’m interested in are not the big headed ones that most fans collect. I’ve got the masked Spider-Gwen, Captain Marvel and the Thirteenth Doctor, which Denise reviewed here, all Funko products in this scale.

Neither is close to the complexity of Lady Thor,hough each is spot-on to her character. Her costuming rivals of much more expensive action figures – she cost just ten dollars — as she looks damn good from her boots and leg wrappings to her winged helmet. Even her face, what we can see of it is fairly realistic with a nice set of eyes and quite cute lips.

The blue eye design is, by the way, something that carries across most of the female Funko Rock Candy figures, and all of the ones I have share it. No, they’re certainly realistic and they certainly give the female figures a distinct design motif.

Keep in mind that’s she’s only five and a half inches tall. That cape is remarkably good looking considering that it is solid plastic and doesn’t move at all. Her costume is spot on to what Jane Foster wore during her run in Thor. Just look at her helment — perfectly detailed. as is Mjölnir, Thor’s Hammer.

All in all, a most excellent figure. I’ll have a review of both Captain Marvel and the incredible Soider-Gwen.
