Funko Pops Series 2

My Funko Pops have all come in for the Series 2 collection: Lapis, Peridot, Connie, Rose Quartz, and two designs of Lion.

Here they are out of their boxes in a group. Comfy, guys?

Now let’s take a detailed look. First up: Connie Maheswaran.

Connie looks great! She wears her training outfit, complete with the bandages from the wounds she got sword fighting in “Sworn to the Sword.” Her nose and hair look appropriately Connie-ish, but the figure is unsteady. She does not easily stand on her own. (Lean her against Steven, maybe? I lean my unsteady Pearl against Garnet.)

Next up: Lapis Lazuli.

Wow! Brilliant colors, lovely sculpting on the dress, tiny smile, and the translucent wings are incredible! Plus they help her balance. ;)

Next: Peridot.

Our favorite little clod is adorable. She is sans limb enhancers, painted with her signature catlike mouth, posed with her little fists clenched, and has that really sweet transparent visor!

Next: Rose Quartz.

Oh, Rose, you are lovely. She has the same nose sculpt as Steven, pretty rosy lips, eyelashes I don’t recall being part of her usual design, and a glorious head of complex curly hair. I wish she had a thicker build. Her arms are not even as thick as the Steven or Amethyst figures, and I would have loved to see her whole body as sturdy and big as she is in the show. The typical Funko design does not account for this choice–they made Amethyst and Steven thicker, so why not the 8-foot XXL Gem Greg fell in love with?

Next: The Lions.

If you didn’t know, there are two Lions because one is typical vinyl and one is “flocked”: He’s fuzzy all over! Flocked Lion is a Hot Topic exclusive. Lion has his heart shaped nose and white glowy eyes. He’s obviously quite sturdy on his feet. He has no visible mouth. The tail is cute, though you can’t see it in my picture. 

I am excited to welcome these guys into my SU Funko Pop family!
