What Makes Funko's Rock Candy Figures So Special?

The first time I saw one of Funko's Rock Candy figures was at Toy Fair this past winter. I found myself standing their staring at the adorable design. While most of Funko's figures air on the cute side of art, there was something special about the Rock Candy design. Somehow they manage to be both pretty and cute. Not leaning too heavily towards a different character shape all together like the POP! Vinyl's do, these collectibles keep their shape with a cartoon vibe. Eyes almost as big as some lovable manga characters, positioned in proud stances, you'll notice many admirable female characters amongst the collection. In fact, the Batgirl of Burnside figure has been wildly popular.

I think it's great that Funko has so many different designs amongst their brand. There's always going to be something for everyone. What do you think about the Rock Candy design?
