Here's a review request from @less_hayze for his Hot Topic exclusive Venom! So, Venom has had numerous looks throughout his span of years in comics, movies, and games. This blue edition of his pop is a neat take on Spiderman's creepy nemesis. For gamers, you may recall the blue'ish appearance of Venom in Marvel vs Capcom. I love the idea of rolling out a number of Venom alternate looks. Hot Topic landed a nice series and Funko did well to make them unique. The pink and green tongue and sweet white spider markings on his chest are very cool! As for detail, Venom has his ups and downs. Venom's body and head need a bit more of a veiny, ripped appearance. His body, other than the above mentioned white spider logo (again, very cool!), is extremely overlooked. On the positive side, the jaggedly shaped eyes and green speckled lanky tongue are awesomely well done. The mouth and teeth are great as well, and where Venom's tongue makes its exit from the mouth looks natural (well, if their was anything natural about Venom lol 😅). We've got a few beefs with build quality. A few spotty pot marks on his head and tongue are unfortunate and will deduct a few points. Some paint blur can also be seen on the outlines of the eyes. Nothing too major besides those issues. In conclusion, great idea for Funko, a nice pickup by Hot Topic, and a nice addition to any Marvel collection!
Build Quality: 6
Overall: 6.3 out of 10
