For the Birds opens as one by one, a flock of small birds perch on a telephone wire. Sitting close together has problems enough, but then along comes a large dopey bird that tries to join them. The birds of a feather can’t help but make fun of him—and their clique mentality proves embarrassing in the end.
I didn’t know that these little blue birds had names! One is called Bully. He is the ring leader and goads the rest of the flock into picking on the big new comer to the wire. Then we have Chipper, Snob, and Neurotic.
I think who we have in our Funko Minis box is Snob. The one who first starts to make faces to mimic the big bird (not THE Big Bird).
I can’t believe how hilarious this vinyl figure is! Sometimes I come across a piece of merchandise that I just have to have no matter the cost or my present acquisition budget. When I saw this I had to hold in my laughter so as not to appear like a complete tool in the store!
Even the packaging is amazing:
The boxes are hard gloss cardboard with a clear window to display the character. They have nice graphics on each side with a full listing of the available characters on the back. This series is from the Pixar Shorts with two figures being from the Sparks Shorts that are presently showing on Disney+.
But now to the star of our post:
I mean, look at that face!
The level of finish on these vinyl figures is not good. There are many rough edges and bad colour finishing in more than one place. But the overall charm of the characters makes up for that. However, they are a bit below the usual quality of a Funko figure.
To see two more vinyl figures from this series, check out Day & Night from the Pixar Short of the same name.
