Funko Pop! Television Twin Peaks Laura Palmer Pop! Vinyl FigureWhen it comes to Twin Peaks, people who have heard of the show are likely to recognize the name Laura Palmer. She was found dead minutes into the pilot movie, setting off the question "Who killed Laura Palmer?" that was on the lips of pretty much anybody who saw the show for the first season. The whole idea was to never actually solve the case - brilliant, but a resolution in season two as to who killed her raised even more questions. We saw Laura alive on video and in other places, but the figure surprisingly focuses on how we first saw her: dead, wrapped in plastic.

This 3 3/4-inch-ish scale figure has a jointed head that turns surprisingly well for being wrapped in clear molded plastic. When you see this figure, pick her up - even in the box you'll notice she's significantly heavier than other Pop! figures, and much heavier than she looks. There's a seemingly naked human body under the clear plastic, which is covered in some strategic wrappings to hide certain elements. Hands and feet are clearly sculpted inside, and you can easily make out fingers and toes.

Laura's deco makes this one of the most unsettling figures I've ever seen - and I've seen thousands of figures. Possibly tens of thousands. Her eyes are closed, with the surrounding skin a pale, bluish hue. Bits of golden sand pepper her face and her hair was swept back by the water, cradled in clear plastic that does a good job of recalling where she was originally found dead. It's hard to ignore the presentation as a figure being much like a bouquet of flowers - a girl treated like a pretty object, wrapped and bundled and only the top is exposed. It's ghoulish, and it turned out well.

Funko Pop! Television Twin Peaks Laura Palmer Pop! Vinyl FigureGiven the nature of the figure - basically a dead woman with no real costume to speak of - Funko did a great job. The warped plastic arapped around her does a great job of distorting the reality of the naked person now standing on my desk. The presentation makes it into something more, with a clear display stand complete with a claw to support this very top-heavy figure. She will not stand on her own. The artisans at Funko did a nice job recognizing which detail to include, with the aforementioned hands and feet being visible through the clear plastic and much of the rest of her body not having that level of detail, nor being particularly visible through the wrappings.

Fans request - sometimes jokingly - all sorts of dead people as action figures. Padme from Revenge of the Sith plus Luke's Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru post-Empire visit were startlingly common requests in the 1990s and later 2000s, so when I heard that Twin Peaks might be happening I didn't expect to see the corpse. Maybe a flashback, maybe the version of Laura that lets us know we'd see her again in 25 years - which I thought would probably be the most unsettling time we spent with her short of the morgue. Maybe I was wrong. I'm amazed to see Funko recreate something so iconic and so disturbing in an adorable style, and a 3 3/4-inch action figure of this costume is also on the way. I have to give Funko credit for consistently being a company who's not afraid to try pretty much anything in the figure space, but geez, this is creepy. I'm glad it exists, but it's certainly disturbing.
