Welcome to Flashback Friday: The MCU. In this series you’ll get a review and discussion on some of your favorite Pops and Dorbz from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We really appreciate the shared universe so the figures will come from film, television, and streaming. After watching this week’s fantastic episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I had to pick one of the members from that show to focus on this week. Since Quake plays an integral role in “Self Control” she is this week’s choice.
Daisy Johnson, formally known as Skye, now known as Quake debuted in the MCU in the pilot episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Since then, she has evolved into a very deep character and a higher level S.H.I.E.L.D. member. Let’s jump right into the pop that was bestowed upon her.
The face of Daisy is quite bland. There’s not a lot happening but I have noticed that more and more female pops are receiving eyelashes to make them look more feminine. Her hair was cut short in the show soon after she received her abilities from going through terrigenesis. The Inhuman origin of the character was specific for the show.
She’s wearing the customary black suit that most of the agents sport throughout the series. The suit is extremely similar to the ones that Black Widow wears in the MCU films. The suit is outlined in yellow which I’m not a huge fan of. I prefer the blue outline on the Black Widow suits. There’s a zipper in the center of the suit which allows for quick removal if needed. The forearms are supported by gauntlets that absorb the damage Quake does to her own body every time she uses her abilities.
The belt is black with a silver belt buckle. There are a couple of silver attachments on the belt which are holding some gadgets or other pieces of equipment. The right leg is strapped with a weapon holster and loaded with a firearm. The suit is completed with heavy duty, nearly knee high black boots.
I really like the design of this pop. Quake with her left arm pointed outward and fingers spread is the exact pose she does when someone is about to get quaked. It’s a really subtle touch but works extremely well. Overall, I think this is by far the best pop from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series to date. I’m hopeful we’ll get more characters from the show in pop form in the future. I’d love to see a Mack pop. Moving on, let’s check out how you can get this pop and how much it will cost you.
Daisy Johnson was widely released which means you should be able to pick it up at stores such as Hot Topic, GameStop, Wal-Mart, Target, FYE, and Barnes and Noble. You can also easily purchase this pop through eBay and Amazon. You should also check out are Facebook group which you can find at this link. The pop runs right around normal retail which means it should be relatively easy to purchase for $10.00.
