Funko Pop! Friday | My Hero Academia #249 Katsuki Bakugo


It's Friday so today, I want to share with you guys about another Funko Pop! from My Hero Academia animation the very first wave supposedly came out back in 2017 and it's featuring Katsuki Bakugo's character in his hero costume!

First off, let's see the packaging that Kacchan came in. Just to let you guys know, I got this Funko Pop! from official Malaysian distributor, Sheldonet via their official website so I'm so glad to receive it in mint condition.

Notice the round hologram MediaLink sticker? It's proof of authentication so all is good! I noticed some Pop!s that I've gotten came without any sticker so that's kind of worrisome. I bet you guys know this but it's important for me to purchase my collectibles from legitimate source.

Glad to see the lovely condition of the box truly and there's the whole set of Pop!s printed at the back so yes, I gotta collect them all as I hardly can resist it!

Look at Kacchan peeping with half of his face like that! 

There's that distributor sticker at the bottom of the box so indeed this came directly from Sheldonet.

Of course, there's Kacchan's head printed at bottom side of the box with half of it folded inwards with some product info as reference.

I love that all figures came with plastic holder (sorry, I don't know what it's called) like that so the figure floats safely in the box without the need for it to be wrapped in plastic seals and bubble wrappers. Although when it comes to Funko Pop! there's no such thing as Mint in Sealed Box term unless they're one of those store exclusives that came in big outer box with another merchandise like T-shirt so yes, there's going to be plastic wrapper around it. 

Now, let's see some close-ups for the figure!

The above are the elevations of the figure. I actually found it weird as Kacchan doesn't have his black mask and the protruding thingies on his head.

The copyright information are embossed at the bottom of his feet that confirms this figure came out back in 2017 and Made in Vietnam.

Update on 3rd September 2021, I'm currently using Gotcha Pops to protect my Pop!s so I'll check back with you guys at the end of the year and see whether the colour of the box fades or not. 

I was expecting a full hero costume for the first Kacchan's Funko Pop! but here we are. As much as I want to simply skip the whole first wave as the designs aren't that impressive to me; look at how cute Kacchan's Q Posket figure but I'd still collect them. Haha

So what do you guys think? Would you have Funko Pop! as part of your figure collection? Definitely let me know by leaving comments down below and I guess I'll be seeing you guys in my next segment post same time next week. Stay home and safely!

  1. I honestly think that it's weird seeing Bakugo without his mask
