Yayy! Today I'm travelling over to North Wales for a five day break! I can't wait to go to the beach, to walk in the sea and build sandcastles and collect seashells and feel the sand inbetween my toes. I'm probably going to be spamming my instagram with photos & I hope you enjoy seeing what I'm doing. Are you going on a summer holiday? *instantly starts singing 'we're all going on a summer holiday...'* I'd love to hear about your plans! Today's post is going to be all about the latest additions to my Funko Pop! collection. Enjoy!
This month in my Pop in a Box subscription, I received a Pop! figure & another of the vinyl figures made by Funko called 'Dorbz'. The Dorbz figure is Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas and the Pop! is Holden from American Horror Story: Hotel. Any fellow AHS fans reading this? I'm really happy to have received both of these figures!
I fell in love with this adorable little Sally figure as soon as it appeared in my thumbs up and thumbs down list on the Pop in a Box website. If you've never heard of this subscription before, you basically get to select all of the figures you would love to receive and all of the ones you never want to get on the Pop in a Box database. You are then sent a figure each month at random from your 'thumbs up' list, although you can opt to be sent several figures at once. I usually stick to Pop! figures but I couldn't resist this Sally Dorbz; she will be the only Dorbz I have for a while as I don't want to start another collection of figures just yet.
I absolutely love the detail of this Sally figure's dress. It's so bright and eye-catching. I also really like the simplistic style of her face, with the adorable little smile. I think the neat, compact design of the Dorbz characters is awesome plus I love the texture of the paintwork, it's so smooth. Also, unlike with many of the Pop! characters I've received, I can't find any faults on Sally. The figures are a lot weightier than I thought, so they could even be used as a mini paperweight. I'm really impressed and am now definitely considering getting more Dorbz in the future. They are very much living up to their name, which is derived from the word Adorable :)
Just look how sweet vampire Holden looks! I'm so chuffed that I have my first American Horror Story character! I'm a big fan of the series, and I'd love to build up an little army of AHS figures. Something I love so much about this figure is how well-designed it is! Funko have done a great job of making the figure almost perfectly resemble the character. His hair is so pretty and I love the detail that's gone into it.
I love that they've added blood around Holden's mouth. He's a vampire so it's only right that he's got some blood included in his design. I very much like how his outfit stands out from the rest of the figure. Overall, he's just really well-designed. The only thing that I'm not so keen on is the lines under his eyes. I know that they are there to reflect that he's a vampire but I just don't like them; they are more noticeable than his eyebrows from a distance! Annoying that there's some mistakes on my Pop! vinyl as always, but not as much as usual so that's great. Holden's head slightly tilts to the left but it's not super noticeable and kind of looks like it's supposed to be like that. As for the paint job, his right eye is messy, which makes it not perfectly round and there's also a mistake on one of his socks, but you can barely tell.
Thankyou Pop in a Box for another set of surprise figures! I think this subscription box is such a good idea. I'm really enjoying being subscriped to it! I'm very pleased with the two vinyl figures that arrived this month and I can't wait for July's box.
Thankyou for reading!
Do you have any of the Funko Dorbz figures?
