|Funko Pop! Rides #15 - Daenerys & Drogon|
|Packaging is adequately protects the vinyl figurines inside|
Neither Daenerys nor Drogon are bobbleheads which made the Funko Pop! vinyl figurines so appealing to us in the first place. In spite of that, the uniqueness of this piece makes it a worthwhile addition to our collection - the first Funko Pop! figurine of any kind we've had the pleasure to own.
|Daenerys Targaryen looks really cute in the Funko Pop! Rides series|
|Daenerys's hair has superb details, almost begging to be repainted|
In this set, Daenerys is an uber cute vinyl figure with exquisite details on her hair and a simple yet elegant colour scheme of yellow, white, flesh, black and grey. Drogon was equally impressively in detail and in how it was sculpted, more so than its stand-alone bobblehead version. And while Drogon has a dull red, black and white colour scheme, it suits the 'menacing' pose he has. It's great how the sculptors/designers managed to make Drogon look cute and fierce at the same time.

|Drogon's skin is wonderfully textured to show dragon scales ...|

As tempted as I am to repaint the whole collectible I'm not gonna tempt fate and mess up the missus's valuable collectible piece. This one is more hers than mine and it already looks cute the way it is.

On the whole, this Funko Pop! Rides combo figurine set is an excellent collectible piece. Not only do they have the usual cute charm that the product line is famous for, they also have that little bit extra that I don't usually see in the vinyl figurines. I can't quite put my finger on it other than to say perhaps they both pose well together in a dynamic way that exudes cuteness in a semi-menacing kind of way.

Against a blue background, both Daenerys and Drogon look a bit more toy-like but the contrast gives a clearer view of the latter's details. Personally, I prefer this figurine set against a black background.

Would we contemplate adding more Funko Pop! figurines to our collection? Budget notwithstanding, it's very tempting. The missus has her eye on the Sansa Stark bobblehead while I kinda like the new Suicide Squad Harley Quinn version. For now, we're just really happy with our latest acquisition.
