Probably the saddest GITD I've seen yet.
Will Reggie finally give us Mother 3 before he leaves?

...

Guess not :p

...

But will Funko make Earthbound pops before Nintendo (inevitably) releases Mother 3?

...

I don't think I actually ever introduced myself in the Welcome to Funkoland page :-k

I just saw someone posted the gitd specialty series Genie and the glow looked insane. I'm glad I have it on preorder and can't wait to see the glow in person.

How are you guys taking the pics? Do you keep a black-light on and take the pic or just charge the glow then take the pic?

Most people charge the glow and then take the pic. That is the true glow in the dark pop pic.

If you keep the black light on, it definitely has a different appearance. There are some pics in this thread where they show both. There are some pops that look great under black light, but just don’t glow.

Hope that helps.

Ya I have that problem with Flashpoint Superman where I could barley see his eyes glow with a blacklight but every other pop worked out fine so far.

From what I have red, the phosphorescent materials for the glowing RED (like superman's eyes) are more expensive and the glow does not last as long. You may need to charge for more time.

The charge on the Fortnite Dark Voyager pop is just a few slivers of orange at the elbow and knees and was very difficult to get to glow long enough to notice that it even glowed in the first place.

The best colors for length of glow after charging seems to be those in the cooler color ranges such as your blues and greens.

The warmer the color, the harder to maintain the length of the glow from what I understand.

Guess the glow paint makes a big difference then.

Yes, that's a good explanation on how the glows work. Warmer colors can be a pain to get a good photo out off!
