This line of PoP!s is the perfect example of YouTube running the show and everyone trying to make money off of a hype that will die fast. And today it’s Hello Neighbor. And this game didn’t go over so well with the general public. We here at electricbento gave it a 5.7/10, and we don’t often do low on our scale. So, you know it isn’t good. Plus, these PoP! figures suck, like really bad.
Yes, a hype train is incredibly real and people will lose their minds over simple things. Remember fidget spinners last summer? How many people still have them? That’s how this game and this line of figures is. It’s similar to the Bob Ross line of PoP!s that I just recently reviewed, but instead of being classy, these figures aren’t very well done. They’re all of the Neighbor in various outfits holding various items. That’s it, and there’s a ridiculous amount of exclusives because each store wanted to get in on the hype of Hello Neighbor, hoping that it would be the next Five Nights at Freddy’s. Unfortunately, the PoP! figures came out a little bit too late to receive some of the hype from the hype train. By the time most of the PoP!s could be found in stores, many people had reviews about how crappy the game controlled and how simple and uninspiring the gameplay was. So now, stores are sitting on numerous PoP! figures of the Neighbor that no one wants. I recommend staying away from this set. I don’t believe that they will be worth anything in the future and they aren’t very interesting to look at. Maybe if they go on sale and I have a coupon I might get them as a gift for someone in my family who is under the age of 10. Other than that, these PoP!s are nothing to really look at.
