Funko 9POA Twin Peaks Action Figure SetIt took a while, but now we've got toys from the original Twin Peaks. It's surreal, but now we have 3 3/4-inch figures in Funko's "9POA" line, for "nine points of articulation." They're good - but the format is new for them, so you can see some growing pains in Cooper, Laura Palmer, Bob, and the Log Lady. You can also see a lot of really good sculpting. Originally these figures were solicited as four separately carded releases, but this switched over to a boxed set in the first few weeks. I don't know exactly why, but there's really no getting beyond the fact that one of the figures is a bloody, naked teenage blonde girl. That may be a tough sell.

Funko 9POA Twin Peaks Action Figure Set

These 3 3/4-inch-ish scale figures are more or less the same size as their ReAction figures, but with more realistic sculpting and more articulation. It's not exactly consistent, either. For example, Laura Palmer has a ball-jointed neck that doesn't really move. Cooper and Bob each have nine joints, with a ball-jointed beck, swivel shoulders, swivel hips, bending knees, and bending elbows. However, Cooper's got a long coat that prevents him from sitting down. The Log Lady seems to have more than nine joints, because she has bend-and-swivel elbows - but the hip and knee joints are obstructed by her long skirt. She's also the only figure in the set to have ball-jointed shoulders, so she can spread out her arms too.

The reason you're going to buy this set is to get a Dale Cooper sized to hang out with Luke, Han, Cobra Commander, and Spider-Man. The likeness to Kyle McKyle MacLachlan is there, but he's a little pale - the lips are dark, and this brings out the contrast a little more whereas Bob is a bit tanner. It still looks right, with the hair, coat, shirt, and tie all looking like they do on the show. Nothing is really stuck in terms of the joints, so it's just a good solid figure who can stand without a fight on my desk. The buttons are painted cleanly and he has two hands aren't really sculpted well enough to look good as he holds his damn fine cup of coffee, but he can hold it. He can also hold his microcassette recorder with no problems.

Funko 9POA Twin Peaks Action Figure SetNext up is Laura Palmer, which would be a pretty rotten $10 single figure. She has no display stand, so all she can do is lay there dead. The neck joint is obstructed because of the hair and plastic, so really what you have here is a small collectible dead girl with plastic wrappings and blood splatter. It's pretty ghoulish, and should go well with the matching Pop! Vinyl figure. Fans of Star Wars have been bugging Hasbro to make dead versions of Padme, Owen, and Beru for years - Funko seems to be getting ahead of the game by giving you your dead Laura Palmer before you even had time to realize that you might want one in the first place. The pale blue skin, purple lips, and closed eyes complete the whole corpse vibe.

The set's sole antagonist is Bob, the malevolent force whose purpose is to be evil and whose true motives were left obscured in the decades between the series. (As of my writing this, the new episodes have yet to air.) He's got a great blue jacket and a nice shirt, with tons of painted buttons. The legs don't swing forward quite as far as Cooper's, but they do move cleanly. The hands are outstretched in a menacing pose, which matches the angry face quite nicely. The hair is a little more solid than the fair look on the show, though, and the stubble is also a lot more solid and toy/doll-like than one might hope for. But then again, nothing's worse than bad stubble, so this is better than a bad execution of the alternative. It's a fairly glossy figure with a good weight to it and it feels fairly sturdy, but at least one of the legs on my sample is a teensy bit loose. Otherwise, this is about as perfect as I would expect - it's a nicely jointed figure with a great face and more personality in his fingers than many of my toys have in their whole bodies. I also assume it wouldn't sell well if sold individually, so the whole forced bundle thing was probably a super smart idea to get the figure into my hands, and potentially yours.

Rounding out the set is the deviant, the Log Lady. She's not jointed like the rest, and the way her glasses sit on her face are a mixed bag - but the textures on her clothing and the paint job are magnificent. It's a complicated garment for a 3 3/4-inch scale action figure, and you can really feel the plastic fabric. They gave her extra arm articulation... mostly for naught. I appreciate that she included the log as part of her ensemble, but the arms are posed in a way where she can't hold up the strange wooden spirit. Her wrists can't turn and her hands can't grip - so Cooper or Bob can hold the log, but the Log Lady? No dice. The head sculpt is good, but the glasses are executed awkwardly. Glasses are really tough to pull off as a 3 3/4-inch figure, so you usually get something like the Baroness from G.I. Joe - either the frames are sculpted directly to the head, and that looks weird, or they're a separately molded piece with (or without) lenses... and that looks weird. It turned out adequately, but if this line continues for the long haul I hope and indeed expect all of these characters will get costume variants or resculpts someday. It's probably not likely, though.

I got my money's worth - 4 figures for about $7.50 each is a great deal. If you ever see this set on sale (or heaven forbid, clearance) go ahead and snag it because how often do you get cool classic TV figures? Other licenses are in the works, including newer ones and some bona fide classics like Batman from 1966, and I'm digging it. It also makes me realize that 3 3/4-inch figures are to my generation what Mego figures were to the kids about 10 years older than I am, which means the format is probably going to have a pretty decent next few years before its slow march into the sea. Enjoy it while it lasts, kids, because as soon as Star Wars moves on this party is over! Get while the getting is good, because as far as action figures go this is the best size you an hope for. Unless you have more free space than I do.
