And the one that started it all? It’s the Unmasked Ant-Man from the Marvel Collector Corps box. By itself, this one isn’t a huge deal to me. Like the GITD exclusives, he uses the same body, but as, I said on the Mystery Minis, Funko doesn’t really seem to try to get any Paul Rudd specific details on their POPs the way that Minimates or LEGOs do, so the Unmasked Ant-Man is just a cool part of the group. What puts him over is his accessory: Funko’s Smallest Bobblehead! He includes a tiny Ant-Man and I love it. If you mix in the Mystery Mini, you get a great scale change depicting Ant-Man’s size changing abilities. I think it’s the list little guy that got me to buy the big ones and unleashed my obsession. He’s a great piece!
Finally, there is one more Funk POP! Marvel figure that I haven’t managed to snag, the SDCC Exclusive Blackout Ant-Man, I don’t have any Barnes & Nobles near me and obviously didn’t attend SDCC, so I’ll have to pick that guy up by a different route. It’s basically the normal Ant-Man figure with the Blackout design from the film. I know more about this design, spoiled by the LEGO, but it’s not time to talk about it just yet.
Overall, Funko did a great job on the Ant-Man POP! Line. I would honestly have a ton more POP! Figures if they just weren’t so addictive. I literally need to stay away – Funko sent me one in the Collector Corps box and got me to buy five more! The sculpts and paint work on the ones here are all great. I did have some excess glue issues on various figures – leftover from the lenses be adding, but it cleaned up well for the most part. The only real bummer is the GITD not shining like the sun when the lights go out. I listed where the exclusives are for most of these, so you can track ‘em down if you want to. Picking them up at various places was actually pretty fun.

First Hulkbuster, now super-tiny Ant-Man? That Collector Corps exclusivity is killing my interest in a lot of Marvel POPs.
Man! These are great. I’ve been on an Ant-Man kick myself, glad the movie was good since it validates what I’ve spent on Ant-Man related merchandise. I definitely need to find me those Pop!figures
