It’s Funko Friday yet again and I, by chance, managed to find this glorious little Pop! I have seen many League of Legends Funko Pops but I have never ever seen Jinx. She is one of those iconic female game characters. I already have one or two fan artworks depicting the character but I’m overjoyed with my little Funko Pop! This will be my first Pop! Games Funko Pop, so without any further dilly dallying, let’s have a look at Jinx!
League of Legends is slightly similar (only sightly) to Street Fighter. It’s a competitive online game that blends the intensity and speed of an RTS with RPG elements. There are two powerful teams, each with a unique play style, that battle head-to-head across a variety of backgrounds. In League of Legends, players assume the role of an unseen “summoner” that controls a “champion” with unique abilities to battle against a team of other players or computer-controlled champions. The goal is usually to destroy the opposing team’s “nexus”, a structure which lies at the heart of a base protected by defensive structures. Each League of Legends match is discrete, with all champions starting off fairly weak but increasing in strength by accumulating items and experience over the course of the game.
Jinx is well known for her blue braids, pink eyes and wrecking havoc wherever she is. She is a criminal and leaves a path of destruction wherever she goes. You could say that she’s the Harley Quinn of the gaming world…maybe. What do you think?
The Pop itself is such vibrant and vivid colours! And look at those eyes. The blue and pink colouring make a fine match. This Pop is incredibly detailed. From her tattoos to each individual piece of ammo. She has it all. At the back we have her canon (correct me if I’m wrong about that) which is covered by her french plats. The paintwork is okay, there is some unevenness with the tiny details such as her ammo. One thing with this Pop, she cannot stand face and body forward, since her hair are longer than her feet. You will have to move her head to face either the left side or right side and then she stands perfectly. Overall I’m really happy with my little funko.
