Vinyl Sugar has a lot of interesting product lines in the Funko arsenal. Up until now, the only ones I have been buying are Dorbz, but the Vinyl Vixens were always very tempting to me, basically because the character lineup seems specifically tailored to me. All my favorite Bat-family characters in one female-centric collector line. However, the design of those figures is very off-putting to me. The scale and proportions reminded me of Bratz a little too much. Not to mention the eyes with their creepy sexy gazes (imo). I would always stop and look at these figures in stores but would walk away wishing they were smaller, had more proportionate heads, and looked cuter. I honestly never expected such a product to exist, but then a year later here we have Rock Candy, the smaller, cuter Vinyl Vixens. While this is still not my ideal collectible, I am really excited about this line. I'm especially impressed that the first wave has two distinct Batgirls. Let's check out the first official Burnside Batgirl product below!
One thing I want to say about these Rock Candy figures is that you can adjust the angle they stand slightly. The stands have two foot pegs that fit really snuggly into the figure. You'll notice that some of these photos are rotated to make her stand more upright (If anchored down securely on the stand she'd look like the Tower of Pisa). After this photoshoot I realized how easy it was to just loosen her left foot a little bit and level her off.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the Classic Batgirl also released in Series 01.
