Hello Heroes!

Are you a fan of the old school Mego figures from the 70’s? I am. I have a few of them in my collection, but they are quite expensive and hard to find in good condition. Good job the people at Figures Toy Co. has their own version of the classic 8-inch figures. Looking like they came out of the 70’s they have a Batman figure series that looks incredible and perfectly captures that fun style that Mego was known for.

Already 2 series in that consists of Batman, Robin, Catwoman, Joker and more, a third series has been made available for pre-order. The line consists of Batgirl, Removable Cowl Batman, Removable Mask Robin and Alfred Pennyworth. Let's have a look at the pictures:

Hello Heroes!

If you have been following me on twitter you would know that I have been extremely busy the last few weeks. So I have not been able to shoot any new Funko POP! video reviews. With so much cool stuff coming out, I thought I would do a written review. Not as fun, but still you get to see some great pictures of the new stuff that is out now.

Today we’ll take a look at the Hot Topic exclusive Hipster Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I reviewed Belle and the Beast figures a long time ago when I first started to make POP! video reviews, so it’s a bit of fun to revisit her in this new variant.

What is all the “Hipster” business? Well, its started as an Ariel The Little Mermaid meme. Hipsters fancy themselves as the cooler-than-you lot. When you google “what is a hipster” you get “a person who follows the latest trends and fashions,” but I think it’s a little more than that. Anything somewhat cool is old to them and they look to be obscure as though it gives them some sort of “street cred”.

An annoying lot, in short, LOL. So, someone created a “Hipster Ariel” based on a screen grab of the mermaid wearing “nerd” type glasses that hipsters are prone to wear to take the piss. It because very well known in pop culture leading to the other Disney Princesses getting the hipster treatment and we now have Belle, hipsterized in Funko POP form!

Bloody hell, enough with the backstory and let’s get to the review!
