The familiar Guardians crew is back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but during the break, they picked up a new member or two. That includes the delightful Mantis, and now Funko has brought her to the POP line.
The new POP is just as adorable as Pom Klementieff's portrayal in the film, with her antennae and confident pose. Funko's sculpts continue to get better as well, with little wrinkles in the pants and boots, in addition to the glossy paint on the costume.

Director James Gunn described the relationship between Mantis and the rest of the team, saying "I think the relationship between her and Drax is very interesting because they're both complete oddballs," Gunn says. "It's more of a relationship to the group as a whole, but I think she relates a little bit more to Gamora and Drax then she does to Peter."
