It Came from the Toy Chest: Granamyr and Spike's Mama!

Day Two of the themed Week: "Get off your ass and type, George R.R. Martin" Week!
As you may have deduced by the Title, it's the age of Targaryen! Daenerys Stormborn, Mother of Dragons, 12 year old girl who Jason Momoa rapes(in marriage) on Game of Thrones.

So, after a disastrous start with Jon Snow, I move on to Daenerys Targaryen, My hopes are through the floor. Let's crack her open, pray to the old gods and the new that she will not share the same fate as Bitchface Snow!

I cracked her open and she did not break! Huzzah! I guess she is now Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, Unbroken (so far)

size comparison.... Damn! Those Targaryens are pale!
The Khaleesi has similar articulation to that of Jon Snow.
Head on a ball joint, shoulders, elbrows(ball jointed shoulders similar to most hasbro figures) and ball jointed hands. The chest is on a ball joint similar to the 1.0 Females in MOTUC. the thighs are articulated like a GI Joe figure with an additional thigh cut. (the thigh cut was stuck on Jon Snow btw) Double jointed knees and ball jointed feet. The feet articulation is a bit awkward at first, but it allows for more natural poses.4.5

Paint and Sculpt:
Here is where I have some issues: While Jon Snow captured Kit Harrington's perpetually lost face, the Mother of Dragons doesn't look much like Emilia Clarke. The rest of her body is OK, but the caked on paint hides some of her sculpt. Then to make matters worse, the paints are sloppy as hell!
Thanks to Daenerys' right Elbow, I noticed Why Jon Snow broke. Seems that figures have Clear Plastic Joints... Clear Plastic tends to be brittle and break easily!
I have to give in Paint and Sculpt a miserable 2.5 to the Mother of Dragons.

Drogon. Just Drogon... Sonofa! The Mother of Dragons only comes with ONE of the THREE Dragons... I smell Daenerys variants coming... Not cool Funko. not cool at all! I have to point out one thing. Her right Shoulder has some weird holes. No, she's not broken, those holes are to plug in Drogon, as seen on the pics with her! 2.0

Here, the Mhysa gets a 3.0 because of the paint issues and not too accurate sculpt. If you find one with better paint job, be careful! Seems that I got lucky with a less pretty but not broken Dany T. It's a shame that these Funko Toys are all over the place.
