For this Funko Friday I decided to take my camera out and start taking some toy photography again. I’ve been on a slight lull with it for a while but I slowly want to start to get back into it and what better way to get back into the habit than taking some Funko Photography!!
My Dragon Ball Z Funko collection is growing quite nicely and now I can add another to my list: Mr Piccolo!! Mr Piccolo was part of the first wave of Dragon Ball Z Funko Pops along with Goku, Vegeta, Chrome Metallic Vegeta, Planet Arlia Vegeta, Frieza, Perfect Cell, Super Saiyan Goku, Super Sayian Goku GITD, Super Saiyan Goku Metallic, Goku Super Saiyan God, Golden Frieza and Golden Frieza with Red Eyes.
Piccolo Jr. usually just called Piccolo, is a Namekian and also the final child and reincarnation of the Demon King Piccolo, later becoming the reunification of the Nameless Namekian after fusing with Kami. According to Grand Elder Guru, Piccolo, along with Kami and King Piccolo, are part of the Dragon Clan, who were the original creators of the Dragon Balls.
A wise and cunning warrior who was originally a ruthless enemy of Goku, Piccolo later becomes a permanent member of the Dragon Team, largely due to forming a mutual respect to Goku and even more from forming a close bond with Goku’s first-born son Gohan.
For someone who hasn’t done much Funko Photography in a while, I’m quite happy with how the images turned out. It was a nice change to take the images outdoors once again rather than the studio. The Funko itself is in good condition with hardly any paint marks. He also stands upright by myself which is a plus. I find with heavier Funko Pops you may have a problem keeping them standing up, so luckily for me Piccolo doesn’t require blu tac.
