Epcot 35th Figment Funko Pop! Review
Today I wanted to take a look at the Epcot 35th Anniversary Disney Theme Parks exclusive Figment Pop! Vinyl. Released at Epcot on October 1, 2017, the actual date of the theme park’s 35th Anniversary, this Pop! sold out pretty quickly. However, unlike most of the other Disney Theme Park exclusives, a small amount of this Pop! was also released on shopDisney.com, where I was able to snag him.
Check out my brief review video and them join me for more pictures and thoughts.
Being that Figment is one of my most favorite Disney Theme Park characters ever, I was very excited that when I first heard that he would be released in Pop! form.
Now, while the Mr. Toad and Abominable Snowman (Harold) Pop! Vinyl boxes had an attraction description on the back. The back of the Figment box had an Epcot 35 logo with a cartoon of Figment on it. I would have loved to have seen a Journey Into Imagination attraction description on the back of the box.
As for the Pop! Vinyl itself, I love the detail on this little figment of imagination, but I would have preferred the eyes to have been yellow, matching the character. I was going to paint the eyes yellow if I got a second one for my collection. However, since I currently only have one, the eyes will remain black.
Overall, being that Epcot is arguably my most favorite Walt Disney World theme park and Figment one of my “spirit animals” in life, I am so happy that I was able to add him to my Disney Pop! Vinyl collection. I would also love to see additional versions of him made, including one where he is wearing his yellow and red sweater and one with him holding a paintbrush or wearing a spacesuit, which are more popular versions of him.
Were you able to add Figment to your collection? If so, what are your thoughts on him? Which variants of him would you like to see Funko make? Let us know in the comments below.
