Easily one of the more memorable voices on network TV today, Linda Belcher is the mom who desperately wants to be the fun mom. In many respects she seems like an adult version of a child, which makes for an entertaining show and a character you're either going to immediately love or hate. There's little in-between - and thankfully, the figure is pretty good.
Standing about 4-inches tall, has a head painted flesh and molded in plastic - unusual! - and also sports glasses with clear plastic lenses. I should note when I first opened the figure I thought she was poorly assembled with glue around the arms of her eyewear - this was not the case! It turns out an oily substance which could be easily wiped off could be found on the black plastic, but as you can see it's no longer a problem. Like other figures in the line she's articulated at the neck, and that's it. This is a figure that trades on the charm of the character and the design, and like Gene is unable to stand without her clear plastic stand. (Don't lose it.)
Linda's massive black hair is easily her most striking feature, with her glasses coming in a close second. The rims are filled with clear plastic, but it's a little murky on mine - odds are leaving out the lenses would do wonders for appearance but may not be ideal for stability. She still looks decent, but the clear plastic of the rims sometimes shows if a spot wasn't given enough red paint. On my sample, depending on the angle, you'll notice.
As with Gene, she's posed in a manner befitting her cartoon appearance - with her fingers twined and her legs straight down. She's even got an apron with a pencil in it - but the paint could be better. The smaller details aren't as clean as they could be, with hard-to-paint features like the ties on the back looking a tiny bit sloppy and the writing instrument itself being a tiny bit off. Mine also has a small dab of something on her nose - I assume it's an underpainted spot, and I don't want to try to wipe it off in case it isn't excess paint. It could be a bit better.
Desk candy is desk candy, and this is desk candy. If you get close and squint, Linda Belcher has issues - but as a figure that just sits 12-18-inches away from your eyes, odds are she's going to be just fine. Still, if you have the opportunity to examine one or more up close before making a purchase be sure to do so. The figure doesn't offer anything particularly exciting beyond being a representation of one of the more entertaining matriarchs on TV today. I'd say she's worth the ten bucks.
