Funko Friday: Show and Tell - Castiel #95

Hello there, and welcome to Funko Friday hosted by Pepi of and Kimi of!!!

I only just stumbled upon this blog linkup, and I don't yet own enough Funkos to call myself a 'collector', but I do love the little figurines and wanted to join in. Today's theme is "show and tell" - so let me show off my latest 'Precious', and tell you about him!

This is only the second Funko Pop toy I've purchased for myself. As you all (hopefully) know by now, I am a HUGE Supernatural addict, so I'm trying to collect all the SPN Funkos out there. The first one I bought was Dean, (because, Hello, Dean girl over here), but the one SPN Funko I've wanted since the beginning was the Castiel with wings one, here!

I believe he's a couple of years old, by now, and therefore actually getting to be "rare"... No way you'll find him in stores. I had to go the ebay route, and unfortunately had to pay a bit more than a regular/current figure costs, but it was worth it!

I am SO in LOVE with this figure. Truly, I am. LOOK AT HIM. HE'S SO PRECIOUS.

The thing I appreciate about Funkos is the attention to detail in the clothing of the characters. As you can see, they got Castiel's signature backwards tie !!

And don't even get me started on the wings...

On the show, the angels' wings are portrayed as shadows, so it makes sense that they made my Castiel's wings see-through, but what I love even more, (and it's kind of hard to tell from the photo, but), THERE'S GLITTER IN THE WINGS!!!!!


I mean, honestly, I just can't.

And, now, for the customization explanation: as you can see, I painted his eyes. The one "gripe" I have with Funkos is that they all have the same black dots for eyes. Granted, I understand that's part of the whole 'signature' of Funko, or whatever, but I just don't know how I feel about it.

I want my figures to COMPLETELY resemble the characters/actors who portray them, (especially when they're known for having naturally gorgeous eyes!) and the homogenized black eyes just make them all look like clones, rather than unique collectables, you know?

But that's just me, of course! Personal choice ;)

So there you have it! I love my Cas figure so much. And Dean is pretty happy to have him around, too. (Now I just need SAM and I'll have a complete 'Team Free Will'!!!)
What do you think?

  1. The eyes look awesome, but freak me out too! LOL I love the wings!

    1. Oh no! I don't want them to freak anyone out, lol!! ;)

  2. OMG I love this Cas!!!! The eyes freak me out a bit. I have the French Mistake Castiel ;) Along with Sam and Dean. :) [I love SPN too!!!]

    1. Yay! I need ALL of the Cas Funkos! Glad to have another SPN loving buddy! :)

  3. The eyes on regular funko pops are a drawback. I like the way they make them on the minis like Games of Thrones and Avengers. More personality. Also did you see that Funko is coming out with Gerald Way pops? Thought that would be something you'd be interested in : )

    1. I'm losing my mind about this Gerard Way Funko news!!! I must have every single one!!! They're already out of stock on though!! Arrrrrrgh.

  4. He's super cute! The eyes definitely took be aback a bit, but the more I look at them the more I love them! Definitely a cool touch.

  5. He's really cute! I'm not used to seeing colored eyes, but I kind of like them - and the wings are cool too!


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!
