Have I become a hardcore #Overwatch fan, or something? I will say no despite the action figures I have managed to possess. Seriously, there is something about their character designs that and I'm a big fan of the #POP figures. So with that said, here's POP Mercy to be reviewed!
I'm not sure who is more popular these days between all the Overwatch ladies: Mercy, D .Va, Widowmaker, or Tracer. Don't get me wrong, the other ladies like Sombra are also pretty popular but the four gals I mentioned seems to get a lot more attention. As for me, it seems that I found myself stumbling on the Mercy figures far more than the other ones, so no, I'm not terribly fond of Mercy, I think she looks cool and her merchandise are easy to catch these days.
I'm not going to get EVERY Overwatch POP, especially not the males, unless the design and how they look in POP form just intrigue me. I swear, Blizzard does a fine job with their character designs.
Mercy's default outfit plays with her 'main role' as an Angel themed character. Form my knowledge, she is also a healer... I'm guessing each character has their own unique thing they bring on the table and healing is Mercy's. Her halo and wings look great and the technology/holy look that Blizzard did made wonders. As a POP, Mercy doesn't look too bad and she maintains that regal and advanced look.
The pose for POP Mercy is pretty fitting. I've always mentioned how I enjoy POPs that stray away from the 'neutral' and 'boring' posing. She has one of those 'floating' poses and is supported by the the stand behind her. Characters like IW Iron Man and Vivec are example of these awesome POPs.
Coloring wise, Mercy is pretty good. I love how her color scheme translated into POP form. The translucent wings are probably my favorite thing!
Here she is next to the Hot Topic POP Sombra exclusive. Good scale with each other.
And here is POP Mercy next to Nendroid Mercy. It's cool to see both these stylized versions, different, but unique to their own right.
All in all, this is a pretty cool POP. Again, I'm not a diehard fan of Overwatch, but the characters they have are really interesting! Their POP forms carry some of those intriguing traits so I can't help but snag one or two of them. For any Overwatch fan, I recommend POP Mercy. She has a unique pose, the paint is clean, and she looks good. Makes a good addition to your POP collection. Other than that, that's about it!
Until Next Time!
