One of the defining characteristics of any super-fan at a convention these days is the lengths they’ll go in order to pay homage to their favorite characters. In a lot of wonderful instances, this results in some amazing cosplay creations that are truly a sight to see. Whether it was deliberate or a bit of serendipity, these new Teen Titans Go! Funko Pops, depicting the time they crossplayed as other members of the DC universe, are arriving just in time for SDCC exclusives.
The trio of 3.75 inch tall Toys”R”Us exclusive Pop! vinyls are some of the coolest unintentional cosplay figures we’ve seen. With Robin dressed as Batman, Starfire dressed as the Flash, and Raven bringing her bad-ass cred even higher dressed as Wonder Woman, these are undoubtedly going to fly off the shelves at San Diego Comic Con. We say “unintentional” cosplay as these figures actually depict the characters from a Teen Titans Go! story-line that, as luck would have it, you can watch a clip from thanks to Cartoon Network’s YouTube Channel:
Although clearly marketed toward children, the show makes an incredible amount of tongue-in-cheek jokes toward the classic DC canon. And jokes they are aplenty in the clip from Cyborg introducing everyone à la the old-school Super Friends voice, to the mention of his own JL membership, and the obvious troubles you’d run into trying to pilot an invisible jet.
As if we needed additional reasons to be excited about SDCC, these Funko Pops certainly count as three more things to look forward to. Our one hope is that Funko makes the other two Titans dressed as DC heavy-hitters, because who wouldn’t want Beast Boy dressed as Martian Manhunter?
