Funko Pop! Television Stranger Things Barb Pop! Vinyl FigureThe Stranger Things phenomenon resulted in an explosive love (and quick mock-up) for Barb - a minor character that struck a chord with the Twitteratti. She didn't get to do a whole heck of a lot on the show other than be briefly delightful, and she won't be back next time. People just jumped on board the Barb Train shortly after meeting her, and it still seems to be echoing through the ages. Quietly. Heck, it might even be over - actress Shannon Purser was fan-demanded to be Squirrel Girl around the same time she was cast as Riverdale's Ethel Muggs. People love this young person and hopefully she's going to have a great career ahead of her.

This 3 3/4-inch-ish scale figure has an articulated head and a clear stand. She can stand just fine without the disc, but she wobbles a little bit.

Funko Pop! Television Stranger Things Barb Pop! Vinyl Figure

I talk to a fair amount of toy snobs collectors, and the somewhat contradictory nature of a mass-market specialty collectible has turned a lot of people off of this format. I'm selective - mostly I only buy Pop! Vinyl Figures when the character (or license) is unlikely to see an action figure or toy, as those are my jam. Since there was nothing on the horizon, I had to jump on this figure - and it's great. Funko molded her head in the hair color, and it's gorgeous. The face is painted on well with freckles and eyebrows, plus a bit of make-up around the eyes. Even more exciting, the clear plastic glasses look like vintage frames! There are no lenses in them, but that's what you want here. She even has golden earrings. If you don't get some sort of radar love for this figure, you might not be able to recognize a job well done. Funko's artists really nailed the design, right down to subtle blush on the cheeks. I'm always delighted to see new ways to improve these designs.

Funko Pop! Television Stranger Things Barb Pop! Vinyl FigureHer costume matches the show - pink shirt, lots of ruffles. Tan pants. Books. Funko did a nice job here, with an exceptional head and a body that's not surplus to requirements. Some of the other figures benefit from amazing textures and killer deco on shoes or pants... and this one looks perfectly acceptable. You'll see seams, pockets, a few wrinkles, and generally enough detail to look like a perfectly good figural product. Clearly, the time was allocated to the head here. I'm OK with that.

If you buy only one figure from this range, I don't assume it'd be Barb. But if you did, Barb's a good one - I love the glasses, the eyes are perfect, I don't think Funko could've done a better job with her noggin. It'd be a stretch to do a better body, just because there wasn't a whole heck of a lot to this particular costume and other ones would have required way, way too many paint operations. I'm digging it. I also assume we're not going to see a whole heck of a lot more Barb product with the second season coming up, so go ahead and get this one.
