I’m returning to the Funko Minis Pixar Shorts vinyl figures, adding to my Blue Bird figure, for another post featuring two characters from one of my all-time favorites:
When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! But as their suspicions turn to curiosity, they are delighted to find that this budding friendship can offer a new perspective on the world. And of course, a whole new line of merchandise, including:
The boxes are very sturdy and collectible in their own right. But the real stars are the characters in them. They are charming and endearing and just too cute not to own!
I do have one other figure in this series and I find that overall the set isn’t well finished. The figures have rough edges and ‘blotchy bits’ that is not common with Funko products.
But the characters more than make up for the execution!
I have a few more figures in this line to find. And then I imagine other series in the line will be added to exploit the many other Pixar Shorts and Sparks Shorts that exist.
FUN FACTS: Day & Night was released in 2010 and shown in theatres before the feature-length animated film Toy Story 3. The radio broadcast in “Day & Night” is taken from a talk given by Dr. Wayne Dyer, a motivational speaker and author.
