Persona 5 - Skull Pop! Vinyl Figure
I don’t know about you, but the prospect of being a secret vigilante is an opportunity I simply could not pass up. Seriously though, that’s the dream, right? Unfortunately in reality I’m just a 30 year-old guy stuck at a computer, writing a description about figures based on characters who get to live out said dream. Yes that’s right, I’m talking about the characters of the hit video game Persona 5, who have finally been given the Funko Pop! Vinyl treatment.
Persona 5 takes place in modern-day Tokyo and follows the protagonist codenamed Joker after his transfer to Shujin Academy, after being put on probation for an assault of which he was falsely accused. During the course of a school year, he and other students awaken to their Persona powers, becoming a group of secret vigilantes known as the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. They explore the Metaverse, a supernatural realm consisting of the physical manifestation of humanity's subconscious desires, to change malevolent intent from the hearts of adults.
Funko’s wave of Persona 5 Pop! Vinyls features four of your favourites; obviously we get The Joker, who also features an unmasked CHASE, so be sure to keep an out out for that. Along with him comes Panther wearing her red suit and armed with her whip. Looking to fight the good fight is Skull, who looks to be channelling his inner Casey Jones, oh and how could we forget the shapeshifting cat (just don’t call him that) himself, Mona!
