I have a few Rick and Morty reviews coming up over the next week or two…so I thought I might as well start binging the show (somehow, I’d never seen an episode before). It’s definitely Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim fare, as it fits in with most of that block’s random, outlandish theme. Rick is a mad scientist inventor grandfather who lives in the same house as Morty, his somewhat clueless grandson. They often go on adventures to other dimensions…etc.
Funko has chosen to produce figures for their Pop! line based on the television series. Their Pop! Animation series, to be precise. And even though I’ve been covering Funko’s Pop! line for what feels like a decade, this is actually the first time I’ve ever reviewed one of the figures on Plastic and Plush.
Rick and Morty come packaged individually, with Rick being #112 in the Pop! Animation line and Morty being #113. Rick’s armed with his handy flask and the accompanying green drool flowing from his mouth. Morty is sporting a pouty face and a pair of mega seeds in his hands.
The lone point of articulation on these Pop! figures is at the neck. This is standard for the platform. And when I used the term platform, I don’t mean that they all come from the same mold. They each feature a similar look, with the boxy head and the large black eyes. And it’s pretty amazing how Funko makes these figures recognizable while constrained by that look.
For fans of Rick and Morty, the pickings are slim when it comes to collectibles. And while Funko’s Pop! line is more stylistic than realistic, it might not suit everyone. Personally, I think the figures work well. And fans of the show will be delighted to finally be able to get their hands on Rick and Morty. Wubalubadubdub…right?
