Don’t Be Sad, Black Widow, Your Civil War Mopeez Plush is Coming Soon
Most of Funko's collectibles are all about being cute. Mopeez however rely on a bit of schadenfreude. They're sad little versions of your favorite characters, but you're supposed to get enjoyment from how adorably disappointed they are over whatever it is little stuffed characters get upset about. We've seen some Marvel and DC Mopeez before, but this next batch will actually add two of the most sought after characters to the fold with the additions of Black Widow and Black Panther.
Now the upcoming Captain America: Civil War series does include Vision and Crossbones, for reasons that will likely never make sense to me. Vision I sort of get. He's an okay guy, even if they did make him a little too OP in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Crossbones' movie costume does have a certain appeal, it's still a weird character to make a plush toy for given his roots. Also, there's no better character in this movie to fill out the box? Does anyone care about Bucky Barnes as much as Steve Rogers?
Iron Man and Captain America are actually repeats from the earlier Marvel Mopeez release, which isn't surprising but it is disappointing. Funko's able to update all the Pop figures to stay current with the films, but leaving Iron Man (comic version) and Cap (Avengers: Age of Ultron version) the same for this new sequel seems like an easy out. Particularly since Cap's costume might be his best yet.
Black Widow and Black Panther are welcome additions though, even if it is hard to see the look of sadness on Black Panther's face. Natasha looks like every single one of her fans when looking for Black Widow toys after the last movie's release. So, perfect. Even though T'Challa's mask hides his disappointment, the costume looks really great. The more I see of this MCU Black Panther oufit, the more I like it, and I already liked it a lot to start with.
The Captain America: Civil War Mopeez will be available in May for $8.99 each.
