As we reported a couple weeks ago, Huckleberry celebrated San Diego Comic-Con 2016 with the debut of their YUBI’S Fingerines (get the full scoop on that HERE). At the big show we picked up a variety of the figures to check out from four of their most popular lines, though they have many, many more. Standard YUBI’S releases are blind bagged approximately 2-2.5 inch figures that double as finger puppets. They’re made from very sturdy plastic and have a nice amount of sculpted and paint details. Keep reading for a look at Fingerines from the Godzilla, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Captain America: Civil War collections!
Each single-figure blind package shows off the full collection on the back, but don’t think that you’ll be able to feel around to determine which bag holds which guy; each figure is wrapped up and secured in a cardboard sleeve so while you may be able to feel for bulk you won’t get specific details. But the fun of these is buying blind and tearing them open to see what you get!
At a couple inches tall and with a hole in the bottom for you to wear on your finger (or mount on just about anything), Fingerines have a cute, slightly deformed style that still packs in all of the character details you’d expect. Some characters like TMNT’s April O’Neil are cute while others like Guardians’ Ronan are fierce. There are even unique and creative items like the Milano spaceship and a lot of the Godzilla figures who come complete with environmental bases like fire, broken mountains, or even the Burning Godzilla who’s erupting from a fog bank near a building!
YUBI’S Fingerines are pretty darn fun, and they make great accent pieces to your desk or toy display. Of course, considering how sturdy they are with their solid construction you can also play with them AND they’re great for kids. Huckleberry is rolling these out now and you should start seeing them everywhere for a few dollars per pack. Best of all, the company is amassing an incredible variety and range of licenses so we’ll be getting Fingerines of Minions, Godzilla, the Marvel movies, Marvel Comics, TMNT, Batman and DC Comics, DC movies, DC TV shows, Harry Potter, Marvel cartoons, Scooby Doo and Hanna Barbera cartoons, and more!
