Series: POP! Marvel
Avengers: Age of Ultron was a lot of fun, though on reflection its flaws have become a little more apparent. In particular I think that although James Spader turned in some good voice work, I didn’t think Ultron was that amazing as a villain – which is a problem when his name is in the title.
But there were a lot of highlights. Vision was definitely one, and so was his likely future love interest, Scarlet Witch. Hopefully she has a little more to do in the upcoming MCU films, but it wasn’t a bad debut. And now she’s arrived in Funko POP form!
Her movie costume is quite different to her classic comic outfit, which is maybe not so surprising. It takes a little from her Ultimates incarnation, but is still quite distinct. The red and black colour scheme is a good one, and it’s nicely distinct from all the other Avengers. I can see it being a cosplay favourite at conventions.
Curiously, she doesn’t include a stand – though she needs it more than Black Widow, who did come with one. She’ll stay balanced, but she’s easy to knock over.
With the release of Scarlet Witch, we are now only waiting on one more Avenger from Funko – Wanda’s brother, Quicksilver. I’m not convinced that he will actually get released, but you never know. Personally, I hope that the Hulkbuster ends up getting a wider release first, given his *SPOILER ALERT* untimely demise towards the film’s end.
Hot Toys version, this is probably the best of them, though the Lego Minifigure isn’t too bad either. I think she’ll be a little bit rare for a while, but if you can track her down she’s definitely worth the purchase price.
