Just noticed that the Hot Topic Exclusive Wonder Woman with sword & shield has started appearing on eBay with the smaller tabbed box.

Also, these new tabbed boxes are shorter than the ones that were sent to Target a couple of years ago.

It's my favorite. So many characters look so great in this style. I'd love to see Beverly from It as a Rock Candy!

The last one that I remember is the two Dark Phoenix RCs. The common and the one from the X-Men box.

I do think the Disney Ralph Breaks the Internet broke the Rock Candys!!!

It's crazy because those that love the Rock Candys REALLY love the Rock Candys!!! (Like me for one) My opinion is their size is perfect for the detailed body sculpts, more so than a Pop. With all of the #Funkowomenofpower this past year the Rock Candys would have been perfect line to promote this. Add a couple "chases" and get some hype going with them.

Maybe I'll flood the Funko Twitter and Insta with RC pics and #SavetheRockCandys! :)

I have a sad feeling with how both the Dark Phoenix and the Ralph Breaks the Internet Rock Candy sold not as well, I think the line might be over which is too bad, I would’ve liked to seen Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman in the style.

Which is pretty sad because there was a lot of choices for new characters, oh well that is how the cookie crumbles.

Maybe Harry Potter really sold well that it signifies the cost of producing more of those characters

Just for kicks, decided to get both versions of Lara Croft to see what the differences were like.

Not sure why one says 14+ and the other says 3+. :D

I only collect DC Comics related stuff, but I really like the Rock Candy line. I decided to get several characters and pretend they're DC heroines in regular clothes. I don't even need to customize them! :D

I understand that re-paints/GITD/flocked variants are easy ways to re-use existing molds, but each variant seems like a missed opportunity to make other characters. In Dark Phoenix's case, one character got two Rock Candies...wearing the same costume.

I used MS Paint to combine one of the Dark Phoenix heads with the black suit Batgirl. This could've easily been an awesome Batwoman.

I'll think about it, the tough part is figuring out how to add a molded mask to the front of the face. :)

I made a custom Red Alice (Beth Kane, Batwoman's twin sister) using the Astronaut Barbie head and Draculaura.
