Hello my Funko Fanatics! It’s been a while since a Pop! Vinyl review. So in the happy spirit I am with all the Marvel madness I’ve been going through, I thought I’d write a review on my newest addition to the collection, the Mad Titan, THANOS! If you’ve read my previous posts about Funko, then you know how much of a fan I am. However, what you didn’t know is I’m also a huge Marvel fan as well. Has anyone else been watching the entire MCU storyline since Iron Man debuted in 2008?!
Putting aside the Marvel fanatic I am, back to this AWESOME Pop. The designers over at Funko really know their stuff. For being a 6” collectible and the character stripped down to the essentials, they still capture the essence of the Mad Titan. I love the detail in his gold armor. It’s not just giving him gold boots and a chest piece, you can actually see the type of detail that makes you, the buyer and Marvel lover, aware that he’s in his armor. Even with subtle details like his unusual chin with all the indentations. I’m also favoring his smile, as it appears to be the same smile he gave in The Avengers, knowing fully well, War is upon him.
Now, I will go out on a limb to say 2 things I’m personally a bit bummed out about. Although, I am aware of why these 2 things happened. First and foremost, Thanos as we all know him, wields the Infinity Gauntlet / Infinity Stones. He does not have this on his hand. The second detail is not on the Pop, but on the box itself, showing Guardians Of The Galaxy. Perhaps it should’ve just had a Marvel logo, or something to pertaining to the MCU as a whole? So let me state, that the 2 details are quite accurate though. Thanos first appeared in the first Avengers movie in 2012. However, he made his big debut and we got to see him in his full form in Guardians Of The Galaxy, hence the box.
The bigger detail of which we’ve all seen, the Infinity Gauntlet. If you follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then you know fully well that he is in possession of the Gauntlet, but not all the Infinity Stones (YET!). He didn’t have any of that in Guardians, hence why he doesn’t have it on this Pop. Personally, I’d love to one of 2 things happen. Sometime around when Avengers: Infinity Wars starts, they will make another Thanos with the Gauntlet and all the Stones. However, what I think would be even MORE amazing, is if Funko release either a Funko Pop of just the Gauntlet, or maybe an addition that can be added to the current Thanos.
What do you think should be done about the Gauntlet? Do you have a Thanos Funko and have theories/suggestions on what you’d like to see? Leave your comments below on what you love about this Pop!
