A Kristin Schall action figure? This Louise Belcher figure is as much of a representation of one of the finest funniest people working today as we'll see in plastic, unless of course The Last Man on Earth gets some toys and we're all hoping that it does. She's the youngest family member on Bob's Burgers, playing a slightly manic tween suffering the first assaults of puberty while she goes around wearing a pink bunny ear hat - which may be one of the few things that dates this show down the road. If you like this format of figure, you know what to expect - but if you're new, let's look at it anyway.
She's both tall and short. Standing 3 1/2-inches at the head (and 4-inches and change at the ears), the figure's head is molded in her flesh color with a separate piece glued on with pink molded plastic for the head. The body is molded in green, and it basically works - there are a few places that break some rules of good toy decoration, specifically on her hair. The black hair has a light yellow band tying her pigtails, which results in the black showing through the yellow - they didn't paint the yellow on thick enough to look good. However, since it's on the back of the figure, you may never notice this.
A display stand keeps Louise standing nicely, and as a desk accessory this is a decent figure. If you're looking down at her, you won't even notice the arm and leg paint glitches - if you get close, though, it's a little more obvious. It reminds me a bit of some of the early 1980s The Empire Strikes Back figures that had flesh overspray on the wrists of many figures, only it's the total opposite of that. I can't say this is Funko's finest hour as quality control goes, but the sculpt is good and in the absence of a good alternative, this Louise Belcher is worth the money if you're a fan of the show. I assume it'll be hot stuff down the road if the show continues to go underserved in the merchandising department, and if you doubt my powers of prognostication just look at the going rate of the Hank Hill figures on Amazon these days. TV animation has loyal fans - so be sure to snag what you want while it's cheap. (Just imagine how much you might have paid for a Jay Sherman figure!)
