Wow, more people dislike them than I thought.

Lel, decent amounts of fans though. So eh.

its not a pop but I got my "experiment" today. I got curious what a Chinese ebay knock off looks like compared to the proper figure. so when I do get the legit one in a month it will be interesting to see how much nicer it is. I can already tell this $15 knock off is going to look like complete trash next to the real thing.

Yeah, they have potential but I personally dislike the asthetic/style of the figures.

I think its the lack of emotion in them that makes them so bland. I own one of Disgust from Inside Out and I actually like her. And I'm sure it's because she has a mouth and it gives the figure personality.

While I'm happy seeing figures being more popular in the west, the fact that it's Pops is a bit of a downer.


Yeah that lack of emotion gets me also along with the similar pose they all come with...

I'd be a lair if I said I'm not curious as to how your "experiment" turns out.

I personally don't like the looks of the anime ones but some TV character ones are ok. I have a few and I think they're kind of cute.

Not my thing personally, but to each their own. I want my figures to closely mimic the character as much as possible (limited by my budget), and the empty faces and bland posing just don't appeal to me at all. They are remarkably inexpensive, but I'd say you're merely getting what you're paying. Those wanting more "realistic" or faithful renditions without blowing the bank account might consider prize figures. They retail for under ¥2000, though with shipping from Japan, the price admittedly does increase significantly. While simpler than usual scale figures, they are pretty decent, I think, and a fraction of the price.

I don't see the reason to collect them and wonder why people like to get these but don't opposite to them selling it. It's just not my thing.

I enjoy pops though they are everywhere now. My partner likes to collect them because it's a cheap way for her to own decent figures of her favourite characters.

I have a few, so far kurama is my fav , yea I dislike the general lack of mouths -except for kuramas obviously- and no emotion, I only get ones that I really like
since I don't have money to just drop on a nendoroid this is more feasible for me

Honestly this is the cuttest POP figure I've ever seen. Got it for my sister during Christmas ( wish I could've gotten it for myself)
