NEW 5 star Vinyl line - Starting with Harry Potter!

Postby dexiesmom » Wed May 16, 2018 9:12 am

Blog post introducing the line!!

I think the figures look great! I can't wait until Summer to see how the joints move and the articulation feels!! Very excited to have Funko move into this direction and the figures still be so affordable!

Introducing 5 Star!

Postby TenTwoSix » Wed May 16, 2018 9:17 am

https://www.funko.com/blog/article/introducing-5-star/

There’s a new Funko product line callled 5 Star! It’s an interesting idea as the focus seems to be on creating poses and featuring accessories.

I will reserve my judgement until seeing them OOB and how they move. But I kinda like the little accessories like Fawkes and the dragonling more than the actual figures from the glams.

Me too. Articulation is really hard sometimes because the joints can move very stiffly/break easily. I will def be picking some of these up and taking them out of the box to move them around and see how they move around.

I like the idea of trying something new. 3 points of articulation allows very little posing. Its probably only head turning and arms moving at each shoulder joint. Accessories are awesome.

Am I blind or is the size not mentioned? I'm guessing they are bigger than MM but smaller than Pops? Thats just based on the size of the exclusive stickers compared to the box.

I'll be getting the Walmart Hagrid! I have the deluxe figure, as well. Hagrid is my favorite, so I'll probably need him with the cake, too. Very curious how these will look out of the package, and will decide if I need all of them. At least they are only $10!

These remind me a lot of the mini figures by The Loyal Subjects. With the added articulation and accessories. They have some good licenses for these.

These sure look a lot like Hot Toys Cosbabies, and Nendoroids. I'm not saying they copied them, just that there's already a lot of these "chibi" figures on the market already. It's not a look I have any interest in, too "cutesy" for me. That's OK though, I don't need to get sucked into a new line lol

Big Bad Toystore has them listed as 3.75".

I wonder if that is accurate.

This is a cool design. If they did any other lines I'd like them to change the packaging accordingly. Like if they did Disney, it could be a movie box kinda like an old VHS. A monsters inc set would be great

Snape does look pretty funny, compared to the others. But he comes with a tiny cauldron and potion bottle. Really want to see these in person!

While I love Harry Potter and love Funko - I’m not sure on this line. I will have to see them in person and in all honesty am hoping I don’t like them as I spend entirely too much as it is. I would have like to see Hermione with Crookshanks though and Hagrid with Fang. They look cute but will wait to see them when they come out. I do like the packaging storybook idea.

These actually look really good! I might just have to get Harry and Dumbledore.

I know that Marvel 5 stars are probably never going to happen, but I would love DC, Steven Universe and Doctor Who.

These are basically action figures and a number of companies (NOT including Funko) have VERY tight grips on Marvel action figure rights.

Oh man, these are Danger Zone for me. I should have learned by now never to say "I'm not collecting any more new lines." Funko seems to take that as a challenge. I am curious what the boxes are going to look like since it seemed to say there would be some sort of background to make a diorama of some sort? Unless I'm reading that wrong. They are really cute and I will see how long I manage to hold out. Making so many Walmart exclusives makes it a tad more difficult for me.

Holy Moly! I've always wanted them to do Pop-like figures with accessories. I even had a question on the Funkast regarding it. The designs of these look kind of like a mix between the HP and Star Wars Mystery Minis. I wonder if other licenses will have similar or different looks?
