If you know me, you know I love Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier. When I saw that there was going to be an armless Funko Pop, I had to have it. Then when I saw it was a Target exclusive, I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. I kept checking all my local stores (4 of ’em), and nothing. Then I got a message from my friend Chris who spotted one! He picked it up for me because he’s an awesome friend! I love this Pop! I know there are mixed opinions on Funko variants and they do get a little out of hand, but I think this one is kinda unique and awesome. Now if we can get Funko to put out a Civilian!Bucky, I’d be really happy!
Funko Friday is back!
Sadly, I’m not going to San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been keeping an eye on exclusives. The one thing I love that Funko started doing was selling their “Con Exclusives” outside of the show. Granted, they can be hard to track down but at least it gives us a chance. This year only a few caught my eye but I’m going to do my best to get my hands on them. In most cases you’ll find the Funko items at stores like Hot Topic, Barnes & Noble, and GameStop! Now onto my list!
Dorbz: Burton Batman 3-Pack (Batman, Catwoman, Penguin)
The only reason I want this is because of Catwoman. I’d love if they gave her a proper Pop! Maybe one day down the line.
Pop! Marvel: Doctor Strange – Doctor Strange with Rune
I’m not that excited about the movie but even I can admit this Pop is pretty cute. Plus I’m a sucker for the Marvel Pops.
Pop! Disney: The Nightmare Before Christmas – #205 Pajama Jack Skellington
I’m a sucker for The Nightmare Before Christmas as well. I was able to snag the NYCC exclusive Pop at Hot Topic last year pretty easily. Here’s hoping this guy is easy to get my hands on as well.
Pop! Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Thumbs Up BB-8
Do I really need to explain why I need this one? I mean, just look at the cuteness! It would be my first Star Wars Pop and I can already feel myself falling down the slope.
And that’s it! If you want to see a full list of the Funko Exclusives for SDCC, here you go! What exclusives would make your list? Let me know!
Remember how I blogged about wanting Antony but didn’t want to spend that much money on him? Well, I was able to wait it out and use my Hot Cash from Hot Topic and got him for just $18! That’s a steal for a Pop of his size, and just how big is he? Here are some photos!
I think it’s safe to say this might be my new favorite Pop. The details are great, you can even move Antony’s head a little bit. Plus you can take Scott off if you want. And it’s a huge Pop! I think it’s worth the money for sure. That being said, I’d still try and get him on a discount just because $33 is a lot. I know Hot Topic is always having sales online and normally in store it’s BOGO 50% off. Plus Hot Topic is part of Ebates! If you want to save on shipping, be sure to select “Ship To Store” and it’ll be free! It all adds up ya know?
What do you think of Antony?
I took a bit of a break from the Friday posting prompts but I’m back! This week for Funko Fridays the topic of conversation is about The Funko I Want Most. This could be a never ending listing honestly but I’m going to stick with just one. I was at Hot Topic the other day when I finally saw the Ant-Man/Antony Pop out in the wild!
I grabbed it, uttering the words “I need this” as if I were my five year old nephew but then looked at the price. He was $33! I mean, it’s a large Pop and all but when you’re use to just paying $8-12, it’s a bit of a shock. I put him back down though because I remembered I had Hot Cash that kicks in a few weeks. If I use that I can pretty much get him for half off, as long as they still have him! He’s on Amazon for a bit cheaper but I don’t want to have to wait for him to arrive. Sometimes being an adult is hard.
What Funko do you want the most?
