Each week we take a close look at a comic book collectible. That means we take it out of the package. This week's selection isn't exactly fully comic book related but it's close enough. At San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, Entertainment Earth had some convention exclusive items. When we did a booth tour video, this Sheldon figure caught my eye and Entertainment Earth was kind enough to send me one!
Check out the video above to see the unboxing as well as a closer look at the figure out of the package, in action. Plus, not seen below, you'll find out what exactly Sheldon is hiding beneath his shirt!
The packaging is pretty cool. The back even has some info about the character as well as an action shot of the cast.
I won't deny it, I'm a fan of the show. Surprisingly, I actually completely missed out on the first season. Somehow the show aired and I had no idea what was going on. It wasn't until San Diego Comic-Con the Summer before the second season started that I discovered the show. I arrived early in a room for the Spectacular Spider-Man panel (or maybe it was a Cup of Joe panel) and saw the cast talking about the show. I picked up the first season DVD set and have been hooked since.
What's cool about this figure is it's almost like the old MEGO figures from the 70s.
What makes this figure different from the normal Sheldon figure is he has different color pants, his sleeves are green instead of brown and he comes with one of those big bags you get an SDCC.
As you can see, one side says Batman and the other is Teen Titans Go!
He has a decent amount of articulation for this type of figure. What you'll want to do is put him up on display somewhere. Sheldon is such an annoying character on the show but you can't help be entertained.
I will likely keep him at the office. After all, "Welcome home" and all that.
We'll have an actual comic book related collectible next week. I just couldn't resist sharing this one. If you're interested in getting this Sheldon figure (or the regular), you can still order one from Entertainment Earth's website.
