Comentarios An Afternoon with Eevee & Friends: Glaceon

  • I thought this line was going pretty well until I saw the pictures of this Glaceon. :(

    If the pupils had just been shifted a bit more to the side it would have been a lot better...

    NemsyHace 1 mes#78560700View spoilerHide spoilerI've noticed that all of these figures in this line have been marked with a 2019 copyright date on the figure itself. All of them must have been made pretty far in advance for them to all have that marking on it when they intended for them to be a 2020 release.
    This may also be why they're so limited in quantity - if all of them were made before the line was announced or before the first figure was put up for sale, they may have not had a firm grasp on how many people would want them.

    Whoa, that is much farther back than I was expecting. Thank you for clarifying!

    FlyingToNowhereHace 1 mes#78472253Either is fine! Though honestly I just wanted to know for personal reasons, but I'll add it to the listing if you'd like too.

    I just measured it, it's approximately 4.125 inches tall, 4.9375 inches wide (at the widest point), and 4.8125 inches long!

    noctisityHace 1 mes#78406686Thank you for another review! I'm not sure why, but I just really love Glaceon's paw prints in the snow base!
    Concerning the quality, I'm curious how far in advance these get manufactured? Pretty much most, if not all, factories for non-essential items were shut down for a period so there was a backlog of orders to get through.
    Although slightly different, I purchase from many enamel pin makers and noticed a lot of artists commenting how their newer stock (that was originally backlogged) are having more QC issues -- possibly due to factories trying to rush to catch up?
    Not saying that's an excuse for the quality (I'd rather wait longer for a perfect item vs get my items sooner due to a rush job). But I am curious if that is an aspect of it.

    I can measure it tomorrow, sure :D Would you rather I update the MFC entry or let you know so you can update it?

    Glaceon is a perfect choice for your review since summer is coming soon. I need some ice for the ongoing heat! $15 isn't that bad if you don't mind the quality and just love the character. I might prefer to making the papercraft model for a lot cheaper though because the quality looks nicer!

    On second thought, the printer ink is your expensive part. *sigh*

    FlyingToNowhereHace 1 mes#78328531Nice review! I don't think it was too wordy, or nitpicky. As for whether it's worth $15 msrp, I guess it's relative. If you compare it to your average $10 funko pop these feel worth the extra, but some $20 prize figures would definitely give more bang for your buck. It does seem like these can get pretty pricy though, Funko is too good at creating that feeling of exclusivity that makes people flock to anything they make limited.
    Would you mind measuring the height in inches or cm? It isn't listed on the MFC page.


    Thank you! Yeah, I feel as though these justify reviews since they're not standard pops and don't look the same every time, and since they're limited + exclusive, they garner more interest than standard funkos.

    I can measure it tomorrow, sure :D Would you rather I update the MFC entry or let you know so you can update it?

    SolarstormflareHace 1 mes#78328547I love you nemsy, Glaceon is my favourite pokemon and I'm having a stressful time atm so it was really nice to read this. Sending all the good vibes your way!
    Thank you!! I really love seeing positive feedback on my reviews of this series, sometimes I think nobody really cares for them but I love sitting down and talking about them every now and again. Did you get the figure when it released?

    SeikiHace 1 mes#78328491Just want to answer the poll a little further.
    It's Funko. $15 is only slightly higher than the average Pop figure, and I think we've all seen how hit or miss the QC is on those. They're around Prize-tier and have a price point to match. These are more mass produced in a machine assembly line over the typical Japanese hand-painted figure like we're use to, so I'd expect a more US kids toy quality on average.
    Along with that, while I can get worrying about seam lines for major $100 scales, for something like this aimed more at kids or very casual collectors, I'd expect those to stand out a bit more and calling them out on a piece like this feels rather nit-picky.


    I'm completely aware that it's Funko !

    However, people are allowed to be nit picky with what they spend their money on. Considering the after market prices for these can be quadruple the original prices (ITEM #804801 averages $60 in the aftermarket) and even higher than that (ITEM #804802 averages $100), wanting to know the quality of what you're buying is important to some people. Like you said, paying $100 for a figure warrants worrying over seam lines.

    I'm doing these reviews so people who go searching for them in the future will know exactly what they're looking for, and because they're fun to do !
