Funko Vynl Dumbo & Timothy Mouse Figurines

Dumbo certainly has lived up to his reputation of being The Ninth Wonder of the Universe, as described by his friend and agent, Timothy Q. Mouse. This does leave us with a bit of a mystery however. You see, the seven traditional Wonders of the World are the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Temple of Artemis, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. If Dumbo is believed to be the ninth, who or what was the eighth?!?

We may never know. But we can wonder.

Speaking of wonderful, this pair of Funko Vynl collectible figures fits that bill. Dumbo has always had the market cornered on cuteness but I think this little plastic Timothy may be giving him a run for his feather!

I like how Funko put each characters name on the side of the box next to the figures themselves. And the circus motif is spot on.

It seems that all new Funko releases do not insert a backing card behind the figures in the boxes. But they used to do this with every figure to give it an appropriate setting. This set was produced in 2019 so does have a backing card (above).

These figures were designed by Ashley Anderson:

Dumbo is one of the few characters that doesn’t age (much) or change in his movie and so is represented in much the same way from the end of his movie to this day. By comparison, Bambi grows from a fawn into a buck by the end of his adventure, but then is returned to his youthful appearance thereafter in subsequent appearances and media.

Timothy is a replacement for Red the robin from the original novel. He was used because elephants are supposed to be afraid of mice. But how could Dumbo be afraid of this little guy?

I picked this set up from a local seller for just $5.00 CAN which is much less than the original retail price of $19.99. However, Amazon is currently asking just under $100.00! While some Funko figures do skyrocket in value, I don’t think this is one of them, so the Amazon ask is unreasonably high. That said, any collectible is worth what a person is willing to pay.
