Funko Pop! Hobbit Movie Vinyl Figure Review Gandalf, Bilbo, Gollum
These figures are, of course, different from most action figures. They have great packaging, and a fun, exaggerated sculpt. Paint is good, though it can have small mess ups. Articulation wise, they just have one neck joint, and there are no accessories, though these aren't really the point of these figures.

Today I have decided to mix things up a little bit. I have picked up some of Funko’s Pop!’s finest vinyl figures. The Hobbit Movie ones to be exact. Join me as we jump into the Funko Pop! Hobbit Movie Vinyl Figure Review!
The figures that are included in the release Funko did was Gandalf, Bilblo, and Gollum. If you haven’t picked up any of these figures by Funko you defiantly should, they are pretty cool.
The packaging for this guys is very collector friendly. They are in window box packaging and they are all unique for each of the figures. Usually, the box will feature where the figure is coming from at the top of the box, in this case, the Hobbit, and part of the figure on the side, by the window. The window wraps around the box the figures left side so the figure is displayed nicely. One thing you will want to check for is the paint on these guys. They are cheaply made so there will always be that worry.
The back of the boxes feature the rest of the figures in that series. For lines the Marvel figures other series will be show off here too. Overall very nice packaging. It is easy to open and take the figure out without damaging the box. Once you are done with it, you can put it back in! What’s better than that?
The figures out of the Box!
The figures are very simplistic vinyl figures. They have huge blown up heads and there is just something about them that makes you want them. All of the figures have big black eyes and a kind of rounded off cubed head.
For articulation, they just have 1 point at the neck. They can spin a full 360 degrees with the exception of Gandalf. He can just move slightly to the right and left due to his beard blocking the movements. Bilbo looks like his right arm would move but I can’t seem to get it going. If anyone knows let me know in the comments section.
The paint on these figures as said before is the area that you always want to watch out for. The eyes can occasionally be over-sprayed or have slight slip ups. Most of the time you are able to tell in the store if the figure is going to be good or not, thanks to the awesome window box packaging.
These figures aren’t going to be something to play with but they look great on display. There are tons of figures with themes like Walking Dead, Star Wars, Marvel, DC Universe, Avengers, Plants vs. Zombies, Freddy vs. Jason, Beetlejuice, etc. You can check out all of the figures at Funko.com.
UPDATE: eBay is your best bet for finding these figures.
