The glowy Pop goodness thread :-)

Postby treswright » Wed Aug 26, 2015 1:25 am

03-15-16 UPDATE- since the board was moved all our old photos have been lost. I have moved all my photos that I origally posted in updates throughout this thread to my own web site and am reposting them all here in this first post.

I'm sure I'm not the only glow Pop aficionado, time for us to have our own thread to compare notes :-) I admit I have a problem, I buy certain Pops just because they glow, lol! For example Adipose, I never watch Doctor Who and don't even know what Adipose is (my son said it's a glob of living fat) but it looked like it would glow nicely, so I bought it! And wow, it glows reeeeeally well, gives Creature a run for his money! And as an added bonus the arms and legs glow blue under black light (more blue in person than in the photo), way cool! Strangely when the black light is switched off it all glows the same color.

Anyway I'm hoping we can compare notes on good glowers versus bad glowers. In the pic below are some impressive glowers and one particularly poor one. Up there on top. Yeah, Ghost Rider. Pretty anemic. Frankenstein and his bride are just about that bad, I'll try and get a pic of them later. Catbug isn't real bright, but the color is cool. I have a few other glowers on the way, will add pics of them when I get them.

The pic is of the Pops in a velvet-lined bat case, I have two that I will be wiring up with uv led's and hanging on the wall.

From left to right:
Adipose, Vault Boy, Jesse Pinkman hazmat, Walter White hazmat proto, Jesse Pinkman hazmat proto, Walter White hazmat, Catbug, Creature from the Black Lagoon

I hate all the red glow ones. I love glow but couldn't justify buying Goliath or Ant Man. I'm actually pretty impressed with the glow on my Catbug. My GITD Olaf, not so awesome.

That's an amazing setup! :D I dare anyone to be scared of the dark with those luminous Pops on duty.

I'm so in love with Vault Boy and Catbug! My other glowers are Bubblegum, Finn and Beemo from Adventure Time. So, not a ton so far, but I really love GITD. I especially like it when it actually makes sense for the character, like Vault Boy. I hope we get some GITD Patronuses from Harry Potter in the future for that reason!

I'm a big GITD fan. Love them.

this thread is really making me consider the glow bundle on Popcultcha hahaha.


my only glow Pops are Dr Manhatten and Electro, but my regular Dark Knight Joker and my regular Slimmer have the slightest little glow to them for some reason. just enough to give off enough light to be able to pick them out on their shelf in the total darkness, really kinda weird hahaha

I love glows!! I don't have a lot right because I just started. So far I have Storm, Thanos, Harley Quinn, hazmat Walter White, hazmat Jessie Pinkman, Zero, SS Goku, white lantern Batman, white lantern Wonder Woman. I plan on putting them under a black light, but i have to find them a permanent spot first. Right now they are on my top shelf closest to the light.

I also have a glow jack mini and glow snowman from nbc mini. It's funny because I forget about them and I look on the shelf and see them glowing
I LOVE MAXFOZZY

I like Catbug, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Vaultboy but my most favorite GITD Pop! is La Muerte. This Pop! is great both in the light and in the dark. My least favorite is White Lantern Wonder Woman; not much parts that glow. I am looking forward to getting the HT exclusive Pumpkin King GITD.

OK, so I have not tried to get any of mine to glow yet. ](*,) But I have them all together and want to do a cool display with them all. What are some ideas about what type of lighting/display to use to get the best results? I am SO not crafty so something I can buy with a little assembly vs creating some neat thing from sticks and string McGyver style ;)

I love glows. I have also bought a few pops here and there just because they glow. I took a few pictures back in the day of some of the glows. These were after a few seconds with a blacklight and taken with an Iphone. Not the best pictures. Im going to try to take some move eventually with a camera with more exposure.

Great info everyone, thanks! You've given me ideas on which other ones to pick up :-) As I get new ones I will update this thread with photos so it can be a reference for good glowers versus bad. I will also add a list on the first post showing all of your reports on good versus bad.

saban wrote:I hate all the red glow ones. I love glow but couldn't justify buying Goliath or Ant Man. I'm actually pretty impressed with the glow on my Catbug. My GITD Olaf, not so awesome.


I've read a lot of reports that Ant Man's glow is lousy but Yellow Jacket's is good.

Ben wrote:That's very cool. How long have you got them 'charging'? They're glowing so bright!


Thanks! Actually the picture was taken with a fluorescent tube black light shining on them. For now I have the case sitting on a desk in my bedroom with the light shining on them. When the light is off they continue to glow for quite a while although not as brightly. I'm going to wire the cases with the strip LED's and hang them on the wall. I plan on doing a how-to for that in this thread with links to the supplies used.

SpilledBees wrote:That's an amazing setup! :D I dare anyone to be scared of the dark with those luminous Pops on duty. I'm so in love with Vault Boy and Catbug! My other glowers are Bubblegum, Finn and Beemo from Adventure Time.


Haha! I actually do leave them on as a night light and it is so cool to wake up and see them shining away there :-) How do you like Bubblegum, Finn and Beemo? Are they good glowers? I've got Bubblegum on order.

min8or wrote:this thread is really making me consider the glow bundle on Popcultcha hahaha.

my only glow Pops are Dr Manhatten and Electro,


Wait, they have that? I need to go check that out, I just placed an order with them but didn't see that! I have Dr Manhattan on the way, he looks like he would glow good, does he? What about Electro, does just his head glow? I wasn't sure about that one.

thornboosh wrote:I have the glowing Emperor Palpatine but he doesn't seem to glow that well


Now that surprises me because he looks like he's molded in GITD plastic and normally those are the good glowers! I have him on order from Popcultcha, and spirit Yoda too.

allhermight wrote:Maybe I haven't "charged" mine enough, but none of mine really glow at all.


I definitely recommend the strip fluorescent black light, it really fires them up. You can get one at Walmart for around 20 bucks. Don't do the incandescent black light (screw-in bulb), they don't work nearly as well.

Nice! I was just checking your customs out yesterday, really cool work! I love the Universal Monsters line so was really checking out your Mummy and Metaluna Mutant :-)

Nice collection! Let me know your thoughts on good versus bad on those and I'll add them to the list.

Thanks again for all the input, very helpful :-)

Hahaha! Well for simplicity if you just go buy the fluorescent tube fixture I mentioned above then you can just set it below your glowy buddies and you're done :-) As I mentioned above I'm going to do a how-to on lighted wall-mounted bat cases from Michael's, I have all the supplies on hand just need to get to it. But it'll be a little more involved. The cool thing about having them in a black-lined case is it really shows off the glow without any distracting reflections.

Ed, if you don't mind and you have the time, could you please let me know which of yours you consider good versus bad glowers so I can add them to the list in the first post? They all kind of look equal in your pics but I know for example that Ghost Rider glows really poorly (or at least mine does) so I'm guessing your camera kind of adjusted to whatever light it could capture, so doesn't necessarily show that some glowed better than others. Thanks again!

The ones with some of the best glow off the top of my head are Dr. Manhattan, Cthulhu, Gemini Creature, Oogie boogie, and Baymax. Thanos has a pretty decent glow as well. Red doesnt glow very well, so the Spiderman and Evolve Goliath are very hard to see, even with blacklight. You wont see them glow with regular light. Some that were surprisingly bad glows are Olaf, Slimmer, White power ranger (not much glow area, head doesnt glow) and ghodtrider. Id say the majority are in the normal range.

Nice thread!! The only glow one's I have right now are Ant-Man(glow sucks on that one.) and Gamma Hulk, which glows great. Just yesterday I ordered the GITD Creature from Gemini and can't wait to get that one. I'm definitely gonna start working on my GITD collection.

And it's crazy that the glow protos of Jessie and Walt look glow more than the production pieces.

You will love the Creature, it's just an awesome Pop all the way around! One of my favorite Pop's for sure!

I agree, when you look at how cool Walter's glasses are in GITD it really makes you wonder why they just did painted glasses on the production version. Same with the masks!

Thanks Cameron, added it!

I also added the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to the bad list, I bought him a while back and just tried him out, very disappointing. The others glow so strongly that they look like they are lit from within. He doesn't even look like he glows at all under black light, just looks like purple light is shining on him. When I turn the light out his glow is faint. It looks like he's just got a light coat of GITD paint, the ones that glow great are molded in GITD vinyl.

PS- the pic is deceiving, makes him look equal to Catbug. But while Catbug isn't real bright, it does glow nicely and like I said, mm man just looks like he has light shining on him, like he would look the same if just non-glow plain white.

this is the Popcultcha bundle,

http://www.popcultcha.com.au/the-glow-c ... of-10.html

not sure how hard any of these are to get in the US, and whether it would be any cheaper than sourcing them individually from a local place.


as Ed's pic shows, Dr Manhatten glows quite well, and Electro's head is the only glowy bit, and i find mine glows quite well too.

Surprised that B-Mo isn't on the good glow list, I think I can honestly say that it's the best glowing pop there is (my opinion of course)

Such cool pics, thanks for the thread. Just waiting for some characters I really want in GITD to make my move. Already missed out on Darth Maul & Deadpool.

I'd love to see some more X-Files characters, GITD

I think Emperor glows pretty well. I hold him up to a light for a couple seconds and he glows really well. Darth Maul on the other hand has an okay glow, and Vader is decent.
I'm the collector Gotham deserves. (but also the one it needs right now)

I'll try to post a pic later, but I would like to add that the new Pumpkin King Jack glows really rather nicely for a warm color.

Woah, that's a good deal! If I didn't already have 4 of the 10 I'd jump all over that!

He is now :-) Now that you mention it I do remember several people stating in other threads that he is the best glower in their collection. I'm not a big Adventure Time fan but suppose I should add him since he's so highly rated on glow, and I do have Princess Bubblegum on the way too so they can hang together :-)

No problem! Yeah I would love to have Darth Maul and Vader, but I'm just not willing to pay the going rates and since they were both exclusives I doubt we'll ever see them again.

I figured sooner or later we'd get the same Pop reported as a "good" and "bad" glower. I'm guessing it may have to do with the lighting. In your case you charged it under black light and it's on your good list but maybe thornboosh charged it in regular lighting and didn't like it so much. So I put it on both lists. I have one on the way from Popcultcha, when it gets here I'll render my vote on it as well :-)

It's already out? Wow, that was quick, I just saw the glam a few days ago! I need to get that one, love NBC Pops :-) Where did you score it? (EDIT- I see now that it's a HT exclusive, I'll run by and see if I can nab one too!)

Awesome list treswright!! There are a few on the list that I had been meaning to get.

I saw a review on YouTube about the new HT exclusive Pumpkin King Jack and apparently, it is a bad glower. Hope it was just a bad Pop! and maybe another reviewer might have a better experience.

I pretty much got into Funko because of the glow in the dark figures, so I love this thread. I think it might also be helpful if you list what color each figure glows. I had my hopes up for a purple glowing Thanos, but found out right before I bought it that it glowed green. My first Pop was the Loot Crate exclusive Groot with the the glowing hand, and my latest Pop was the glowing Lumiere. Here are my thoughts on some of the ones I have:

Groot: takes a long time to charge, but glows a long, long time. Glows green, just the hand

Olaf: faint, but long lasting blue glow, whole body

Hulk and pocket hulk: glow green, whole body

Lumiere: takes a lot of light to charge, faint glow, and just the candlesticks glow. Also, Lumiere smells weird, almost like an actual candle.

B-mo: best glow by far, takes very little light to charge. Whole body glows green.

Alien ReAction: doesn't glow, at all.
