Top Nerdy 10: Live Action Badass Lady Pops

The Funko Pop obsession is real. You can’t just have one. It is just impossible. It all started with my very first Daryl Dixon pop. Then it turned into The Walking Dead Pop collection. Then I decided to get Rocket Racoon. And THEN Pops started coming in Loot Crate boxes! Fast forward a few years later and between mine and the Nerdling’s collection we have over 200 Funko Pop Vinyls! I know there are many of you who are just as obsessed as I am, and I’m always interested to see others’ collections. So I’m starting a series dedicated to my favorite Pops that I currently own!

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

I want you to understand how ridiculously difficult this list was to compile. Figuring out my favorite pops is like deciding which of my cats my favorite is! So rather than trying to decide an overall Top 10 from my collection, I’m dividing it up into categories. This week’s category is  Live Action Badass Lady Pops!

10. Lady Sif (Thor 2)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Someone has to take care of those boys! I love all the little details in her armor and on her shield. I really have no intention of collecting all of the Thor Pops, but I HAD to have Lady Sif.

9. Charlie (Supernatural)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Not only is Felicia Day a badass lady in her own right, but so are the characters that she plays (can I get a Codex Pop please???) I feel like the Charlie Pop is also a Pop of me. I even own boots that look almost exactly like the ones she’s wearing!

8. Cosima (Orphan Black)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Why is it sometimes you jump on board with something everyone else has already been obsessing over, just when it’s about to end??? The floating male head and I binged through Series 1-4 of Orphan Black and are anticipating the final series, premiering in June. Cos is one of my favorite characters from the show, so naturally I had to have a Pop of her!

7. Black Canary (Arrow)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

This is the Sarah Lance version of Black Canary (sorry, Laurel!). I still really want to get her as the White Canary as well. Sarah Lance, as well as her actress Caity Lotz, is an exceptionally badass lady. Look at those boots! Those are face kicking boots if I ever saw them!

6. Daenerys (Game of Thrones)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

I actually have 2 different Dany pops and don’t intend to stop there. When I love a character passionately, I tend to try and collect every version of that character that I can. This is my favorite version of Dany because she reminds me of the journey that she has gone through to make it to Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms, Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Protector of the Realm, Mother of Dragons, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Breaker of Chains. No biggie.

5. Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Buffy + My Youth = Everything. If you have no idea how much I love Buffy, take a look back on my Buffy 20th Anniversary Fashion post. Buffy was really the first strong female figure I remember seeing on TV growing up. Naturally, Miss Summers had to end up in my collection and on my list!

4. Carol Pelletier (The Walking Dead)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Y’all know how much I love Carol, right? To wind up with the blood spattered Hot Topic exclusive version of Carol is even more epic (except for some reason my box doesn’t have the sticker on it). Carol is a badass cookie making merc who does the hard jobs that no one else wants to do.

3. Michonne (The Walking Dead)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Yet another badass lady from TWD. There’s a newer variant of Michonne out now, but I’ll just stick with the mysterious hooded version. Back when she had her “pets”. I kinda miss those guys.

Buy Michonne here!

2. Wonder Woman (Batman V Superman)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

WONDY!!! (ICYMI check out my homage to Wonder Woman here) On a scale from 1-10 can you guess how excited I am for the Wonder Woman movie? CRANK IT UP TO 11!!!! I am trying really hard to resist buying all the WW Movie pops…believe me, it’s been difficult.

1. Hawkgirl (Legends of Tomorrow)

Live Action Badass Lady Pops

Perhaps my favorite on this list in the NYCC exclusive Hawgirl. I really miss my girl on Legends. It hurts real bad *begins singing All by Myself at the top of her lungs in tears while eating cheesecake*

I can’t believe I did it! I was able to narrow down a list of my Top Nerdy Ten Favorite Live Action Badass Ladies from my own collection! But know this, there will be more. Oh yes…there will be more. Please, share your Funko Pop collection with us! We love Pops! Post pictures of your collection if you’d like on any of our social media! Tell me who some of your favorite Live Action Badass Ladies are your favorites!

Stay Nerdy!
