That Pting Pop Vinyl is the single most disturbing thing I've ever seen in my life and if I ever have the displeasure of seeing it again I will not hesitate to burn every single one in existence at the stake and dump the remains in a landfill off the coast of Puerto Rico.

Anyway, I'm sick of Funko Pops now and this is coming from someone who used to avidly collect all the Marvel ones up until late 2016. Just lost their appeal to me and I don't remember why I liked them in the first place, nor can I understand why anyone else still does.

I take it back, the Ker-Blam Man Pop Vinyl is the most horrifying thing I've ever seen in my life.

I kinda feel like Funko's character selection is mirroring Character's missteps with the 5" line.

Character:
Doctor variants, Dalek, one-episode villain/character that may not have staying power: Yes.
Companions or arc-significant characters: Nope.

Funko:

*Doctor variant that may never appear onscreen more than once.
*Dalek
*One-episode character that arguably was in a better story.

If you thought Ryan, Graham, and Yaz were hopeless/a longshot in 5"....pull up a chair. (Or, put a frog in one - THAT'S a more likely Pop.)

But hey, at least the P'ting looks POP appropriate. ;)

I get the sense they’re probably picking characters that either are easily recognisable or lend themselves to their style well. I think these are more likely to get impulse buys than the companions for instance.

There’s a Thirteen with Glasses, Glow in the Dark Kerblam Man and Junkyard Dalek still to come.
Have pre-ordered the next 3 from Zavvi in Australia but it looks like December 2019 before they arrive. I paid much more for pre-order for Pting through eBay though, but should arrive by the end of the month (July). He looks cute but I wonder why his legs and arms appear to be a different colour; don’t recall different colours that from that episode.

I often wonder which website would be best to advise regarding new Funko Pops. Seems one has to search a few websites regularly to find what may be coming up soon.
