Funko How To Train Your Dragon 2 Mystery Vinyl - Storm Fly


At least I think his name is Storm Fly. At the same time we god the super awesome Astrid figure, we also got Storm Fly. He is...considerably less exciting.

It's a nice enough figure, and the painting is flawless. It's adorable in a chibi-spiky-wyvern sort of way. And it's nice to have a matched set of rider and dragon, I suppose.

Nevertheless, not as cool as getting, say, Hookfang (more on this later).

This looks like the tampa-printing process used on tin-plate toys to me. If so, then it's not hand-painting.

That could well be. But it wouldn't be the first time I got a shoddy painted blind packed figure with that process either.

It's well done, in any event.

The key to tampa-printing, like any other multi-pass colour overlay technique (eg decal sheets) is ensuring correct registration of the second (and later) colours.
