When I found out that the Tangled Rapunzel Funko Pop! was going to be released extra early, I ran to my nearest toy store and bought one. Rapunzel is my favorite Disney Princess of all time and I had been waiting for some sort of Funko version of her for a while now.
Disney’s Tangled: Rapunzel (FM 150520)
Just a little tip before we proceed. There have been a lot of fake Funko Pops going around so make sure you purchase from a reliable store. For US customers, you have loads of choices: Amazon, Hot Topic, Barnes and Noble, etc. For customers from the Philippines, I recommend checking the list of retailers under Arigatoys Collectibles. Any other collector store though, don’t be too trusting.
So now, let’s proceed. Here’s the beautiful Rapunzel with her adorable little chameleon sidekick, Pascal!
I think it’s really cool that Funko decided to add in Pascal too! So you get the price of one for two figures.(Check out Princess Tiana + Naveen too.) I hope this addition of tiny figures/accessories will be a regular thing for future Pop figures both under Disney and other franchises too. Seriously, wouldn’t it be cute if all the Disney Princesses came with their adorable sidekicks?
Here are Rapunzel and Pascal out of the box! As you can see, they used a lot of soft, pastel colors just as her main color scheme was in the movie. Next, can we talk about the details? They’re amazing. From the dainty lace trim and subtle folds on Rapunzel’s dress to her long golden hair, the detailing is just really good! Pascal has a lot of texture going on in his body as well- he’s even got scales around!
I also think it’s nice they gave Rapunzel a little paintbrush (even more that I myself have been painting a lot lately) to go with her pose. Because of her hair, the figure stands up really well too. The same goes with Pascal.
At the moment, Rapunzel is the heaviest Funko Pop! figure I own- much heavier than my 6-inch Baymax and SDCC Exclusive Frozen Anna (will review these in the future). The material they used for Rapunzel is a lot harder- she kind of feels like a vinyl sculpture and one you wouldn’t want to drop. Normally I wouldn’t mind letting little kids play with Pops but with Rapunzel, I think parents should think twice. She’s more of a figure meant for just display purposes. Pascal on the other hand is plastic-y and light.
Let’s take this moment to stare at Rapunzel’s long flowy locks. They’re gorgeous!
Man does Rapunzel have a head full of hair. From the back, she’s literally just all hair. Kind of like a blonde Cousin It. A more flowy version, that is.
Here’s who else you can get in the Tangled line. At the moment, it’s just Maximus but in the future I hope we get a braided Rapunzel (this one I’d have to get) and a short hair alternate, and also a figure of the swoon-worthy Flynn Rider.
Overall, I think this Pop is an excellent purchase and one I’d recommend! I’m very happy I got her right away and I definitely was not disappointed with her hair. I also love the addition of a mini Pascal and the fact that he stands up so well makes him easy to place on top of Rapunzel’s head or any Funko Pop! figure for that matter.
However… Rapunzel looks better standing on a surface and she is more of a display thing above anything else. Also, normally I enjoy taking my Funko Pop! figures with me on-the-go since they fit easily in my bag. But I don’t think I’d ever choose to bring Rapunzel because even if the material they used to make her is sturdy, I still feel she shouldn’t be dropped. Pascal though, is a different story.
