PopBoxZA Funko Pop! Alias Review

Reviewed by on

Funko Pop Vinyls are, arguably, one the most enjoyable collections to start, maintain, or expand. But be warned – many an ordinary collector has succumbed to the irresistible urge of throwing caution to the wind and growing their Funko empires with reckless abandon.

Beyond the amazing range of Pops that they continue to churn out the other cool thing about Funko is that what they release isn’t necessarily time sensitive. Yes, you’ll find the latest characters from Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok adorably represented in Funko form but the company also regularly pays homage to past icons, films, and television series that have long since gone off the air.

More recently, Funko has released a wave of four Pops of the TV series Alias’ main character Sydney Bristow. The series, which began airing in 2001, ran for five seasons and introduced us to the multi-skilled super-spy Sydney Bristow, played by Jennifer Garner. A master of disguise Sydney is recruited by the CIA and poses as an operative for the criminal organization SD-6. Created by J.J. Abrams, Alias was a series chock-full of realistic plots and a main character that was easy to root for. Besides further starring Victor Garber, as Sydney’s father, and Michael Vartan, this series also happened to introduce on Bradley Cooper to the world.

It’s only fitting then that such an iconic series and main character have it’s own line of Pops. Besides her badass spy skills Sydney was also well known for her colourful disguises, which is where Funko’s focus is.

The first sees Sydney is an electric blue mini-dress complete with black high-heels and blonde wig. The standout feature on this Pop is the high-heeled shoes, which boasts impressive detailing on the straps and small buckle on top of the foot. What’s more, even the toenails have been painted to match the blue of the dress without any of the paint having smudge or spilled over onto the rest of the figure.

The next figure, featured in episode twenty-two of Season 1, depicts Sydney’s Goth look as the sports a blue wig and all black get up. Funko have shown great attention to detail here with the choker and wristbands meticulously sculpted to include the silver accents. While the sheer top is nicely modeled it would’ve been nice to have a bit more sheen on what are supposed to be leather pants.

The next pop in the wave jumps to the first episode of Season 4 during which Sydney dons a schoolgirl outfit. Funko have the outfit down to a tee, including the plaid skirt and black calf-length socks. The only gripe with the outfit is that safety pins on the front of the skirt are bigger than the original version. Still, it’s an acceptably cool replica of the outfit.

While all of Sydney’s costumes in Alias are well known the most iconic look for the character was, arguably, the day-glow red wig, which she first wears in the first episode of the series. The famous red hair is seen several more times before the series end in 2006. Funko have brought it back to life and thankfully it’s as vibrant as it was in the series. The outfit it’s been paired with is an all-black ensemble that perfectly contrasts with the hair.

Ultimately, there’s little fault in Funko’s Alias pops. We only hope that we see another wave of memorable Sydney costumes and perhaps even a few of her sidekicks.

Big head. Bright colours.

Reviewed by on

Overall a fantastic Pop from the body shape, the pose to the big open head. Only issue found is with the paint on the mouth, the teeth are bright white and the surrounds are a single shade of red lacking a bit of needed detail. Otherwise still a great Pop and would be awesome as a supersized Pop.

Amazing detail!

This Pop has great detail and is a standout among the others with its translucent hair. It is also heavier than most Pops in this size. The mask is darker than expected but it actually looks good nonetheless.

Good, not great

Reviewed by on

I'm a fighting game player mostly, so take this from that perspective.

The control is what it says it is. It's design is geared towards the younger gaming profile.
The construction is compact and solid while being quite light. The interface for the touchpad is rather cumbersome and could have been better implemented with a toggle mechanic. You cannot power on the PS4 using the PS button on the control.
The analog sticks have no rubber grips on them, personally I prefer this, and found them responsive and accurate.
The d-pad will service the average gamer quite well, it will frustrate you if you use it for fighting games, as the left, down-left and down directions seem a bit off of their axis. This results in a lot of missed inputs.

The controller also works well with steam games, and it still retains the use of the R3 and L3 buttons by clicking the analog sticks in.
The L1+2 and R1+2 buttons are close together, again this is something I prefer, because you can press both buttons together using one finger. There is no analog effect for the R2 and L2 buttons.

The controller has no speaker, lightbar, rumble feature or headset input.
It does however not require any batteries or charging, but need to remain plugged into the console/PC to function.

I think it is good value for money, and it doesn't hurt that it looks as sleek as it does.

Good South African Alt Prog

Reviewed by on

For those that like their music progressive, "djenty," experimental, perhaps, and have varied taste, this is a good album to pick up. By South African standards, this album is by no means generic and while djent at the core, it is built upon via a hybrid of styles. My only criticism is the cleaner vocals, which I don't enjoy much here, but love the harsh vocals carefully sprinkled throughout the album. Overall production and recording is also great, as they worked with the best in the biz, Louis Henn at Burning Tone Studios. Considering the price of good music nowadays, R100 is a steal!

Tired of inconsiderate neighbours interrupting your playing at 23h30? Annoyed with the police continually visiting just to hear you stroke the skins? Wife and kids about to leave you? Dog have hearing problems? Then this product is for you.

Seriously. It's awesome. Bought a set (12, 13, 14, 16) and have been banging on with nary a whisper from anyone in a 5km radius of my house...which makes for a pleasant change.

Great movie that head-nods some of the best 80's horrors

Reviewed by on

What an awesome movie!! Atmospheric with practical special effects abound (very little CGI in sight). There are time when the movie is a bit heavy on style vs substance however, does have some good character depth and story arc. Forget the jump scares - this movie builds itself on the atmosphere and all out bizarreness of the plot.

There are more than a couple of head nods to genre favourites such as 'The Beyond' , 'The Thing' and 'Hellraiser' (especially hellraiser part 2). Fans of these films ought to love The void - Great gore and FX, well cast with good acting and script.

Would I ever want to see a part 2 ? Probably not ... as this is a good self-contained story which, like a lot of Euro Horror, requires some thinking of the viewer rather than spoon feeding everything.

Trippy, dream-like and gory! What a movie.....

Crashes Galore

Reviewed by on

On my system, using Windows 10 Pro x64, the game either crashes to desktop on startup, or gets a few minutes into the intro video footage, before doing the same. However, if I install Windows 7 SP1 x64 (with platform update KB 2670838 installed), the game plays without any problems. I use a GeForce GTX 1070, with driver 388.13 in both cases.
