Time for another Tanya Tate review. You all know that I collect POP vinyl figures. I have been reviewing them for years. But even more than the general releases, I am a huge fan of the flocked variants. Nothing catches my attention more than seeing something small and fuzzy. LOL.
Well, today I am going to be looking at a flocked figure and a welcome addition to my collection. From the incredibly popular Disney movie Frozen, it’s the Flocked Olaf POP vinyl figure. This was a 2014 New York Comic Con Toy Tokyo exclusive. I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know this was coming out. So, it was a pleasant surprise for me when I was made aware of it. Let’s take a look at Mr. Olaf.
Olaf has his arms (made of twigs) outreached as if to welcome a hug. He has a big bright smile on his face and his big carrot nose. This is really true to the character, he was goofy and lovable in the movie and that comes across here.
His arms, eyes, teeth and carrot nose are flocked. Just his body and (as a nice touch) buttons across his torso.
There is some slight discoloration on him, maybe from being packaged, but it’s not really noticeable.
This is a very nice figure. I didn’t know if Olaf would work flocked, but it does. While he is not furry, the flocked gives it a feel of soft snow. Which suits him perfectly.
This is the fourth version of Olaf (that I know of) following the regular release, SDCC exclusive Glow-In-The-Dark and Entertainment Earth exclusive glitter variants. Needless to say, you could easily build a snow man army collecting Olafs!
