Need a little touch of neon in your life, but not in the mood for a good old-fashioned glow stick?
Well, Funko’s got your back!
I can summarize my excitement in just two words: Black… and Light! And yes, I’m still talking about Funkos. And why am I excited about this, you ask?
Well, it’s because resting beside the words Black and Light, are the words Iron and Man! It’s a whole new neon-slash-retro Pop that resembles everything great about Marvel. This is not a drill. This is not an exaggeration. Because as the world progresses into a more technologically-advanced place, even the smallest changes in the things we love to have and collect are super worth the hype!
Iron Man has always been considered as one of the best superheroes to ever exist in the Marvel Universe. He is a true-blooded Avenger whose story has touched millions of viewers and made their heart flutter, whether it be saving the world, being a good partner to Pepper, or just merely being his wise-cracker self.
In this new Funko collection, I found myself impressed at how the figure reflects black light and gives a soft neon appearance that is enough for anyone looking for a pop of color in their collection. The color combination is so perfect that it satisfies the aesthetic standards set by collectors everywhere.
This Funko Pop doesn’t need an actual black light. The only thing I had to do was turn off the lights, and in the almost pitch-black darkness, Iron Man was just there, shining in all its neon glory. The lights were dimmed, then I shone a UV light onto it, and voila! A bright effect is shown, depicting an Iron Man that’s less ordinary and more fun!
As a collector, it pleases me to know that a brand like Funko Pop always comes with new and unique ways to put a little twist on their products.
Iron Man in a neon suit would be such a sight. Can you imagine? Then he’ll be saying one of his famous quotes, like “I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one”. Now that would be amusing and equally fun.
So if you don’t want to miss out on this awesome collectible, I suggest you grab one now. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
