Supernatural's Crowley Now Has TWO Pop! Vinyls

Funko announced it's releasing an official Crowley Pop! vinyl this January, which finally lets us ask the big question:

Who wore it better?


:D

Granted, I'm pretty biased, but I think our box number at least wins this round.

And John wants to know where Mark's eyebrows are, because, c'mon, EYEBROWS:


You can pre-order the new Funko one for about $10 over on Entertainment Earth. And if you missed our presentation to Mark Sheppard himself, you can see that here, or check out my tutorial to make your own here!

  1. I like yours better, mostly for the facial hair--I think your beard is shaped more like his (theirs goes down too much on the sides), and John's got a very valid point on the eyebrows. :-)

  2. Definitely like yours better! What's the "official" one holding? A cupcake? (I'm only in season 3 of Supernatural, I have to catch up!)

    1. I thought it was a coffee cup with the bottom half missing, but someone else guessed it was probably a glass of scotch or something, which would make more sense. ;)

  3. I honestly do like your's better. When I saw the "official" one, I couldn't tell what he was holding. I think a contract would be better suited for The King. And a blue tie? I've never really paid attention to the color of his tie in any episodes, but I don't ever remember it being light blue. And why the absense of eyebrows? Bah, they should have just bought your design.

  4. The missing eyebrows were my first thought!

  5. Yeah, I definitely agree with everyone else. Your version is better. I mean, maybe their version matches the other Supernatural figures better, but yours definitely looks way more like Mark Sheppard and Crowley. And your angel blade is better than whatever it is they have theirs holding. A chocolate cupcake with vanilla icing? A really short cup of Starbucks coffee? A tiny pie? Like Kate above, I'm not too far in yet, so maybe I would automatically know if I'd watched all the episodes by now.

    Anyway, this is just more proof that you two are the king and queen of creative projects.

    Bet you got some cool photos at Animal Kingdom yesterday. Hope you'll be sharing them with us soooooooon!

  6. I assure those above, you would NOT know WTF crowley was holding if you had seen all the episodes. Because I have, and I have no idea what he's supposed to be holding. And I like yours better, Jen. If not for the eyebrows, then for the fact that he looks like he's yelling at someone. The official one looks like he's just strolling around the mall sipping his Starbucks.

  7. Maybe they (Funko) saw the positive commotion over your Crowley Pop and decided they needed to GET ON THE BALL and make one... No time for details like eyebrows.
    I think the conversation went like this:
    Assembler: "Hey boss, this action figure doesn't look quite right"
    Boss: "Eh, it's close enough."
    Assembler: "I don't know, boss, I think maybe it's missing something"
    Boss: "Well, give him something to hold. We have left over cupcakes from the 'Two Broke Girls' Pops"3

    1. Hey, I was thinking the same thing. :) Great minds think alike. :)

  8. Yours is better. The 666 is better, and knife is better, and you were much more generous with the hairline. Epbot for the win!

  9. Yeah, your version is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better. You've got better details (umm, EYEBROWS)!!! And you can honestly say, YOUR version came first! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yours is way better! The official one doesn't even look like him and I don't like the new shape of it. He's totally unrecognizable without the eyebrows!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like your version better, partially because I like the typical Funko body shape. What is with the official one's body? It's too tall and lanky.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Now that it's been pointed out, one can't help but fixate on the lack of eyebrows!

  13. If the "official" version was on a shelf with a bunch of other figures - no box and no other SN characters around - I would not be able to identify it as Crowley. The Epbot version, with the angel blade and the "Get 'em, boys!" stance is instantly recognizable as The King. Jen Win!

  14. The official "hand-in-the-pocket-stance" is totally Crowley, but your Crowley head (that sounds weird) is definitely better. The darker scruff looks too beardy, and, umm, eyebrows. They're needed.

    Glass of scotch would make sense for the thing-in-the-hand, but all I'm seeing is a cupcake or half of a caramel macchiato. A contract would have been the better choice.

    1. You're right about the hand in pocket stance. I think the body needs a darker tie, and the head of Jen's creation would make it perfect. If only there was a way to make the glass of scotch more recognizable.

  15. When I see the Funco one, I keep thinking of Rufus from Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. Just lighten the hair a bit and fix whatever he's holding, and it would be a dead ringer.

    1. I am so glad I am not the only one who thought it looked a bit like Rufus!!!
      And for my personal opinion is Jen's is better woot woot.. the Funco one got the actual hair color a little closer with it being a bit darker but on the whole Jen's yours freakin ROCKS :D (I am finally up to the 9th season yay me yay netflix yay SN!!!)

  16. You know, another thing that's bothering me about the official figure it that they made Crowley all thin. It's like they've never seen Mark Sheppard, who is built like a fire plug. The body on yours is much closer to resembling the actor. Which I know is not really the point with the figures, but they should be at least recognizable. Which the official version isn't, really.

    1. In his defense, Sheppard has been doing a ton of cardio lately and it's showing!

    2. Hey, "built like a fireplug" isn't a bad thing. It just means he's shortish, barrel chested and muscular. Not that he's overweight. Some folks just win the genetic lottery like that!

  17. Yours is better. Would you make me one for ten bucks? ;-)

  18. You're a pioneer!!! You came up with it first and your Crowley doll is WAY better! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yours is totally better! And I totally thought coffee cup at first too, but booze makes more sense. Either way he regularly has something in his hand. :)

  20. Well, your doll is better, and your box is way better. I think that they sort of phoned this one in.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yours is definitely better. He just doesn't look right without eyebrows.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yours is much better :)

  23. Peter Capaldi's eyebrows vs. Mark Sheppard's eyebrows: who would win?

  24. I'm still confused as to why Crowley has a cupcake...
