The Funko POP thread
« on: May 11, 2019, 03:18:30 PM »
Who else here has some of these?

I resisted for the longest time but maybe a year or two back I got a Finn Balor and a Razor Ramon cheap on Amazon and I've picked up a few when I find them at a good price here and there.

At first I felt silly paying the $10-$12 most of them fetch and only picked things up when I've found them really cheap (Finn was a damaged box one for like $2 on Amazon when I got him).  I still mostly buy markdown and sales but I paid full price for the new Amazon exclusive "U Can't See Me" John Cena which is invisible.



I also came across an exclusive from a little bit back, Venomized Loki, which I paid maybe double retail for but am seeing them mostly sell for triple retail



I recently saw the Spider-Ham that I wanted but passed on getting back in the fall is going for over $30 these days and ended up picking up a few.

Will post more on my collection of these later as we see if anyone else gets involved or if this is just a thread of me talking to myself.

I’m too deep into it these days. Never thought I’d get wrapped up in this.  I’ll take some pics tomorrow.

I bought a set of the New Day that was exclusive to Toys 'R Us before they closed.

I went to WonderCon this year and saw that everything has a Funko nowadays.

Looks like at current count I'm at around 107 or so, not counting Rock Candy, Mystery Minis, Keychains, and other such non-standard figures. I've mostly stopped buying them, mainly due to a lack of space to put them. The only ones I have purchased in the last few months are Mister Rogers, the Unmasked variant of Gwenpool, and the Marvel/Capcom two-pack of Chun Li/Captain Marvel (on clearance because I wanted the Captain Marvel but didn't want to pay full price).
A Horrible Premise - Episode 48: TEN CORGIS TAPED TOGETHER - an improv comedy game show podcast about creating 'horrible' tv shows.

Never got into them. I have a few that I've got as gifts (Star Wars and Stranger Things related) but nothing resembling a collection. The only set I would be interested in buying are the Bill & Ted ones.

A buddy of mine told me he had gotten the Free Comic Book Day Limited Edition Constantine from his local comic shop.  Believe I read that was limited to 20,000 pieces.  I have been asking others if they open them or leave them in box. 

Due to buying the damaged box ones, I open most of them but have left a few in box if they were the rarer ones, for now.  This is what I have.

Opened:
Finn Balor
Razor Ramon
New Day FYE Exclusive with Booty O's (Kofi has a bowl of cereal and Woods/E both have boxes of Booty O's)
Emperor Claptrap (Borderlands)
Jafar as Genie
Robin (DC Super Heroes)
HHH
Baloo (Talespin - Target Flocked Exclusive)

Still in packaging:
John Cena (Amazon Exclusive Invisible)
Zack Ryder (Convention Exclusive)
Ric Flair (WWE 2K19 Woo! Edition exclusive)
Rocket (Avengers Endgame Quantum Suit Wal-mart Exclusive)
Batman (80th Anniversary First Appearance)
Million Dollar Man (nothing special wtih this one - just never opened it)
Mookie Betts Boston Red Sox
Thanos Avengers Endgame Target Exclusive 10 inch
Ant-Man (Ant-Man & The Wasp)
Giant Man (Amazon Exclusive 10-inch)
Ronin (Avengers Endgame Wal-Mart Exclusive)
Prince Akeem - McDowell's (Coming to America - Target Exclusive)

Loki stays in the package when he shows up.  I got the Infinity War Captain American & Black Widow cheap on the way, which will probably get opened.  Ordered a few other things online the last few days and I have to start thinking of how to best display than the stray stuff I have now.

I don't have any, but I've seen them on shelves and I always thought it was neat how they had all of these obscure characters that never get merchandise otherwise.

I mostly collect the 8 bit Pops, but have branched out into some other lines.  I have all 6 chrome Wal-Mart Thanos variations, and some assorted horror pops.  Probably 35 or so in total.

Not a big fan of these but do have the classic Harley Quinn. I want the BTAS Poison Ivy but I'm also not paying $20+ if I can help it.

Went down a serious rabbit hole with these.  I ran into some of the store exclusives that can fetch a little money so I started going down the path of what I want versus what can help the collection and I am all over the place.

I had gone to a Target and found a new Toy Story 4 Target exclusive that is running for double the price online so I got one for me and one to hang on to.  In the background I saw a few Target exclusive Captain Marvel.  Grabbed one, found out later that one goes for over double the price already and rising.  I didn't think to look while I was there but I go back another day and they are gone.
 This is a dangerous game.

GameStop is having a sale for their Pro Day today and I find out they have a "Saturday Morning Cartoon Mystery Box" on sale for pro day that really has mystery and exclusive Disney Afternoon characters so now I want to check that out because I find all the random characters too appealing to pass up.

Which of the Toy Story Target exclusives has shot up on eBay? Need to go look at my local store before having to go that route.

Toy Story 4 Target exclusive right now is a Flocked version of the new Bunny character.  Haven’t checked recently though if he’s still up because some go up and down quickly.  Spider-man Far From Home has some store exclusives going high for a few days before most stores got their shipment and they came down to earth since.

Ah ok.  Thanks for the tip nonetheless.
