Disney Stitch Seated Funko POP
From Disney Lilo & Stitch, Stitch Seated, stylized as a Funko POP! Stitch (also known as Experiment 626) is one of the titular protagonists of the Lilo & Stitch franchise. He is an illegal, genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba, whose primary function is to destroy everything he touches. After escaping the lawful Galactic Armada, Stitch crash-lands on Earth, on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, where he meets a lonely girl named Lilo. Through Lilo’s love and guidance, Stitch abandons his evil programming, permanently reforms, and becomes part of Lilo’s Ohana (family). Stitch is a blue koala-like alien standing around 3 feet tall. He has large rabbit-like ears (with asymmetrical notches on the outer rims of each ear, one near the tip of his right ear, one near the base of his left ear, with the back of the ear tips colored indigo), a wide mouth, a round nose, black eyes, a small, short and stumpy tail. 3 tufts of fur on top of his head and on his chest, aqua countershading around his eyes and from his lower lip extending down to the bottom of his abdomen, 4 arms (2 of which are usually retracted), 3 retractable spines that run down his back, 4 sharp retractable claws on each of his front and back paws (hands and feet), 2 retractable antennae on his head, and abstract indigo markings on his back and occiput that vaguely look similar to snow angels (with the back marking having 2 large “bulges” in the middle that allude to his 4 arms).
He is referred to as a dog by Lilo throughout much of the franchise, as he was taken to a pound and disguised himself as one in order to escape his captors by being adopted by Lilo. He was initially believed by Lilo to be a collie that had been hit by a car, while Nani thought he was a koala of a sort before they found out he was an alien genetic experiment. He has a limited ability to change his physical appearance, as he can retract his lower set of arms, his claws, his antennae, and the 3 spines on his back into his body. Sanders’s initial design concepts for Stitch differ heavily from the final version. Stitch was originally going to have green fur, which was changed in early development to the now-familiar blue. His black eyes were slightly smaller compared to his final version, his ears flared at their bases instead of close to their tips, and some early drawings placed his nose below the eye line instead of above. The early drawings also showed him with white or silver claws instead of dark blue claws, and he wore a yellow-orange spacesuit with burnt orange pants instead of the more uniform red-orange spacesuit that he wears in the original film’s first act. While explaining his creation to the Galactic Council early on in Lilo & Stitch, Dr. Jumba gives the following rundown of Stitch’s powers: “He is bulletproof, fireproof, shockproof, and can think faster than supercomputer. He can see in the dark and can move objects 3,000 times his size. His only instinct: to destroy everything he touches“!
