Funko Pop - EVIL-LYN!

Funko POP! Retro Toys #86 - Masters of the Universe - Evil-Lyn - Funko 2021

Funko Pop's Retro Toys has been a surprisingly awesome theme. In the beginning I thought it would continue with characters like Stretch Armstrong, Barbie, Mr. Potato Head, Popples, and various board game mascots. I never expected properties that had representation outside of the toy aisle to be included. But suddenly there was G.I.Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, and now Masters of the Universe. Most of these already had inclusion in other Pop series like Pop Animation or Pop Television, so seeing them get renewed attention was unexpected. It's a little surprising that we just got our second Evil-Lyn Funko Pop (especially when we still haven't seen Teela yet), but she is actually the perfect reason why differentiated cartoon and toy versions make sense. The two versions (Pop Television from 2017 and Pop Retro Toys from 2021) are notably different and both look fantastic. I would never be able to choose just one. Two of the best Pops in my collection. Let's check out Evil-Lyn below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the Retro Toys Evil-Lyn with the 2017 Pop Television Evil-Lyn.

And here are my yellow Evil-Lyns together. From Left to Right: 1983 Vintage, MOTUC, Super7 ReAction, Funko Pop, Neca Staction, Loyal Subjects, and MOTU Origins (I forgot to include the Eternia Mini and Mega Construx figures).
