So here's a peek at what we managed to get our hands on. :)
|Astro Boy, Chun-Li (Pink), & Hot Ryu|
|Hiddy (Joker), Merlion (White & Sunburst)|
|Terra Cotta Po, Guan Yu (Glow-in-the-dark), Kuchisake|
Let's take a look at the history of Merlion before we review about these 2 exclusive pops! The Merlion where the original statue stands at 8.6 meters & weighs 70 tonnes is the national icon of Singapore and it is located at Merlion Park in Singapore.
It was first used in the country as their tourism logo where the name Merlion combines "mer" which means sea & "lion". The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek which means "sea town" in Javanese while the lion head represents Singapore's original name Singapura where the definition is "lion city" or "kota singa" in the Malay language.
Now that we have some knowledge about the history of the Merlion, let's take a look at the 2 Merlion Pops that was available during STGCC 2016. 1 of which is the classic white colour & the other is called Sunburst Merlion.
The white version of the Merlion has a similar color with the original Merlion in Singapore where the original Merlion can be seen in Merlion Park which is near to the mouth of Singapore River.
Next up is the Hiddy Funko Pop. Some of you might not know who Hiddy is, so let us share some information about the background of this pop. Hiddy is the proud owner of Secret Base, a toy store located in Japan. Secret Base makes rare & limited art toy collectibles where one of their work includes Hikari MindStyle Funko. The Hiddy Pop! was created to celebrate the Secret Base founder & his tremendous influence on modern sofubi where sofubi (ソフビ) means soft vinyl in Japanese.
There are 3 different designs for the Hiddy series that Funko have unveiled under the Pop! Asia line. The 3 designs so far includes a metallic Hiddy in a Ronald McDonald colour scheme outfit, a Hiddy version with a smirky smile & lastly, a Hiddy version with a Joker colour scheme outfit.
The one we obtained is Joker Hiddy where it weighs around 125 gram, it is pretty light. The name says it all, Hiddy with a Joker outfit where the pop! has the color scheme of Joker with green hair, white skin & a red spectacles (a reference to Joker's signature red smile). The clothes for this Hiddy is a purple jumpsuit which has a H alphabet at the side of his front jumpsuit which stands for Hiddy.
