Ready Player One - ART3MIS!

Ready Player One - 4-Pack - Parzival, Art3mis, Aech, and I-Rok - Funko 2018

I swore I was going to read Ready Player One this Summer but I already have a huge lineup of books on my nightstand. I've heard great things from both grownups and kids (and those cross-generational genres are typically my favorite). I finally saw the movie this past Winter and genuinely enjoyed it. It was fast-paced, fun, and absolutely overflowing with pop culture easter eggs. This action figure 4-Pack from Funko was released back in 2018 back when I had never heard of Ready Player One. They are kind of unofficially aligned with the ReAction line, so this set was always on my radar, but I didn't consider actually buying them until a year later when Walmart had them on clearance for three bucks. And once I finally saw the movie I was so glad I didn't let them slip by. Art3mis is the OASIS avatar of the token female character, Samantha Cook, who is one of the Top Five players (I'll admit I snicker every time I read that the players are called "gunters"). She's a cool character. Let's check out Art3mis below!

Art3mis has decent articulation for such a simple figure. She has swivel-and-hinge shoulders, a ball-jointed neck, hinge elbows, hinge legs, and hinge knees. Note: the elbows may be hinge-and-swivel (they certainly look like they are) but mine don't swivel at all, only bend at the hinge.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics

Here are all the characters from the 4-Pack together: Parzival, Art3mis, Aech, and I-Rok.

  1. Pretty good looking figure. A bit pouty for me but that may be what they were going for.
