Happy Independence Day! I'm typing this far in advance because I will be celebrating the 4th high in the mountains with no cell phone reception and (most likely) no internet. It will be nice to get away for a few days, but I've been planning to review these fabulous green ladies for months now and no mere holiday excursion will deter me now. The Statue of Liberty is such a unique and timeless symbol. Her image is so pervasive sometimes that it takes some little plastic toys like these to make me notice how cool she is. The pale green of oxidized copper, the stern gaze, the Roman garb - everything about her is interesting. I'm frankly shocked their aren't more figures of her. Sure, you can find PVC figurines of every Looney Tunes character in the world dressed in the the green sash and spiked crown, but solid green, non-costumey representations like these are very rare. Now I just need a Funko POP, a mini Mez-Itz, and a Kubrick (and the POTA set piece doesn't count). Let's check these ladies out below!
