I HATE FUNKO POP VINYLS

I HATE FUNKO POP VINYLS


I think I could just end the video right here and
you’d understand why I hate these things so much. *Punch* Pop! Vinyls are a prominent line of
overpriced, ugly collectibles based around popular culture icons
such as Venom, Venom as Thanos, Venom as Black Panther, Venom as Loki, Venom as Ghost Rider… Hang on, let’s quickly do the top 5
most epic Venom Pop! Vinyls, shall we? Number 5:
Venom as Rocket Raccoon. Just wicked. Number 4:
Venom as Storm from X-Men. That… that’s pretty incredible. Number 3:
Venom as… *silent moment of despair and disappointment* *long sigh* Deadpool. The design of these things is losely based on
the chibis or chi-bi-s movement, ugh.. the way you pronounce it
depends on where you come from? Which is a Japanese art style where you draw characters with huge, bulbous, swollen, overly large, grotesque heads with gargantuan eyes and a tiny, spindly little body. Sort of like baby proportions in a way. You’re supposed to look at them and think “Oh, that’s a cute version of my favorite character” *scream of horror* Remember that explicit scene in Breaking Bad
where someone has his face exploded off? Well, there’s an adorable Pop! Vinyl for that. Why not honor your favorite princess who died in a violent car crash with this adorable Pop! Vinyl? So cute. Even Meechee from Small Foot got a Pop!. Remember that? The design of these things adheres to a basic form factor, the most prominent feature being the wide, beady, nightmarish eyes. With no other major features aside from a tiny pointed nose and the distinct lack of a mouth. I think it’s the absence of a mouth
that makes Pop! Vinyls so.. uncomfortable to me. I kept telling myself I’ll try to avoid bringing up the far superior, friendly, approachable Lego minifigure design which is brilliant on so many levels, but look what happens to the famous default Lego smile when you take it away What is it thinking? Is it mad at me? I think it’s mad at me. Those unflinching, jet-black endless eyes take on
a terrifying unpleasant and unsettling new form without any facial expression to go along with it. I guess, edgy youths who collect FNAF Pop! Vinyls
don’t need to be told how to feel. They use their detached Golden Freddy form to appreciate the darkness
behind these classic characters. “Yeah, I’ll make mummy and daddy pay if they ever come into my room again without knocking.” When you strip away the defining recognizable traits of these famous characters from Pop! Vinyls, you can really see how terrible these things look. But the only half-decent ones are where they quite literally couldn’t accomplish the recreation of the character, without obscuring or completely redesigning the horrific and restricting Pop! Vinyl art style. Some of the designs are so hilariously incompetent that I can’t believe they got past the concept phase. One of my least favorites is this appalling
Buzz Lightyear one? You know, the character whose smug smile
is essential to his visual design? To the point where nearly every single product
based on the character that has ever been produced in the history of
anything ever made based on Toy Story has his cheeky little smile included. Specifically and intentionally. Even this horrendous USB stick did a better job at capturing Buzz. Why would I want to collect something that robs the personality away from the character? The very thing that made me connect and attach myself to them in the first place. Wait, maybe they leave it blank so you can put whatever you want there? That’s better. Don’t worry, Princess, you can smile now, you’re in heaven. Of course, I picked up some of the absolute worst
Pop! Vinyls I could find, in an attempt to be more fair on the subject
and not just use images I found online. The store I got these from even gave me
a discount for these three. I couldn’t figure out why, though… Apparently they’re all from the same theme or something? *fair* Of course, I got the essentials like Dave the Minion,
who, honestly, belongs being a Pop! Vinyl. That’s a good match right there. Equally shitty things coming together is a good balance. Wait, so they give a minion a smile but not
Buzz freaking Lightman? Get your priorities straight. The best I got was this one of Rico the Penguin
from the famed Madagascar series. He, admittedly, is the worst penguin, but I wasn’t about to be paying 60 quid for a Kowalski Pop! Vinyl Like, are you joking? 60 smackers for this? I picked up a Cayde-6 from Destiny. One because of the delicious irony of basically every Pop! Vinyl series being based on things I’ve made videos on. *sweet recollection of past videos* *again, fair* So many layers of hatred is stacked
on top of each other here, it’s glorious. I only got this one of Ramone from Cars because the picture on the website looked so, so shit that I had to see if it was real or not. Unfortunately, it’s not quite as bad in person. But again, they randomly didn’t give him a mouth. Why does Brian Griffin get a mouth,
but Ramone from Cars doesn’t? Have some consistency, you useless twats. Don’t worry, Ramone. I’ll sort you out. There you go, mate. The final one I chose was a Cowboy Bebop one
of Ed and Ein. Mostly because it comes with a corgi, which I wanted to compare the accuracy of. The corgi is pretty terrible, but the Ed figure isn’t even bad, because they gave her her signature facial expression. They really did Buzz Lightguy so dirty, man. Of course, this is the part of the video where I inform you that the shit thing I’m talking about is obviously getting a shit movie based on it. Yeah, the Pop! Vinyl movie is being developed over at Warner Bros, which is supposedly a live-action/animated hybrid Ughhh Which is only being made because of the surprise
that was the Lego Movie. Now, I guess it wasn’t the fact that the Lego Movie was brilliantly written and directed by a talented pair of artists. No, it was only a success because they based it on something recognisable and that way it’s a win-win for the studio because they can sell more merchandise. I really, really hope that this doesn’t end up happening, but we still got the Emoji Movie and it made loads of money. So you can probably expect an angry video talking about a Pop! Vinyl movie in the future. Some of you may call me a hater. Some of you may call me a Lego fanboy, but that does change the fact that
Pop! Vinyls suck pretty hard. Really hard. Pretty majorly, in fact. Why not be an adult and collect something, I don’t know actually mature? Like, Star Wars Lego or something
equally cool like that? *Outro*

  27. Nerd culture is becoming garbage!

  28. If you hate everything don't you hate yourself

  29. This vid got featured on r/youngpeopleyoutube
    Comment:"Why do you hate everything so much, Are you a Deppresed emo?"

  30. And the funko pop doomguy isn’t even fist bump ready.

  31. I made 5000 at least since Ie colleted these pieces of garbage.

  32. Ngl some pop figures are creepy and really discourages you from buying them. But I do think there are some pop figures that actually look really good not cause they’re accurate or look like the character but because the pop figures does a good job at what it’s intending to do. A small simple figure of a character you like.

  33. I kinda hate it cuz it seems extremely repetitive

  34. I Hate Everything

    does that mean you hate yourself

  35. i personally like pop but it's fine if you don't like them. it's your opinion like you say lol

  36. I only have a Deadpool one. It's not that bad since he has a mask

  37. My sister has became a Pop Vynal collector, she has so many of them in her room, and even my mum has one Pop Vynal of Buddy from Elf and two from Elder Scrolls but I'm the only one to not have one in my room.

    I guess I'm the odd one out.

  38. Why are you making videos about things YOU DON'T CARE / DISLIKE ?

  39. They're cheap and cool looking

  40. I am still getting a joker2019 funko pop

  41. On my opinion i love funko pop figures because i like to collect things i remeber from my childhood.

  42. i personally like pops but your stance on this made me think about this more

  43. I highly dissagree but i get your point

  44. I hate these things too. Why don't people buy proper figures of characters they like that have accurate sculpts and detailing? Rather than this cheap junk that all looks the same just with a different paint job. It seems like people who want to be 'geeks' but are afraid to so instead of buying proper figures buy cutesy silly versions because it may be considered more socially acceptable as it's jokey.

  45. Where’s my Venom Cory Baxter Funko?

  46. The only Pop Figure I like is the Stitch one

  47. I personally love the pop design while I think that the older ones are kinda ugly the newer ones have gotten better IMO and I get your viewpoints and I agree that they should all have mouths because it makes them look oh so much better also I think that people should stop hating this vid and you just because of your views on pops as it's stated in the vid this is just your opinion and just because you dislike something doesn't mean they have to so yeah guys just let him not like them lol it's not hurting anybody also i hope they don't make a pop movie because that would just be dumb and pointless

  48. If very funny how you say soy hate it, but you buy em anyway HAHAHAHAHAH

  49. What's your opinion on the Bob Ross vinyl
    Or Bob Ross
    I mean, you hate everything right?

  50. I have cuddle team leader funko pop

  51. I respect the fact you think the design is too simple, but I love funko pops. I collect them because it’s just fun. And the design is really simple yet stylish at the same time. But I can agree that the lack of a mouth can be somewhat weird. Not here to cause an argument just saying what I think. And if somebody loves funko pops that’s fine, if somebody hates funko pops that’s fine. But I enjoyed the video. Keep coming out with good content.

  52. Tbh Funko Pops are a hit or miss, but I guess some never miss, huh?

  53. this mans setup must look boring as fxck lets be real

  74. Guys don’t subscribe he says he hates everything so he clearly hates you or it clearly says everything if so everyone

  75. For me, I saw that there was a “LEGO movie“ and went like “I will NOT be watching that”

  76. Virgin Funko Pop vs the Chad Nendoroid

  77. I personally disagree with your opinion on these collectibles because I honestly find them to be quite fun. There’s a giant selection of figured to choose from and honestly that makes me happy because many shows or films I like don’t get much merchandising but there’s a funko pop of mostly everything so why not. I also find joy in being able to share this interest with my mother because there’s many characters she likes as well done in the signature funko style. It’s just fun honestly but I still appreciate what you had to say yourself about pops and it still managed to actually entertain me and make me laugh.

  78. First off, they're an insult to vinyls.

  79. some pops have mouths
