Medicom Vinyl Snoopy 1953 Version Figure (review)

On October 2, 1950, the United Features Syndicate launched a new comic strip, Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz, which introduced Charlie Brown to audiences across the country. And just two days later, Schulz introduced a character who would become one of the world’s most recognizable icons,  Charlie Brown’s pet beagle, Snoopy.

And unless you were a close follower of the strip, many people didn’t notice how the characters evolved visually.

But truth be told, my favorite version of all of the characters, Snoopy in particular, was during the 1950s.

This was before the doghouse; before Woodstock; before Joe Cool.  Back when Snoopy was a dog.

Which is why I was so excited to take a look at the Medicom Vinyl Snoopy 1953 Version Figure.

And to say that I was pleased would be an understatement.

The figure arrives boxed with a large window that displays the figure inside.  The figure within is about 4 inches tall and approximately 6 inches long.  Although the figure isn’t articulated, the design is spectacular and I can’t imagine that any articulation would make this a better product.

Compare it to a strip from 1953.

Mediacom does an amazing job in capturing Snoopy’s likeness.

Unfortunately these figures are harder to come by in the United States, which is why I was lucky to receive a figure from Plaza Japan, which has an amazing selection of toys, models, vinyls and more.
