To start off the blog based on our Funko collection, I figured that a good Haul type post might be the best thing to get us going. Since there are four of us that collection (one serious collector, two that get stuff regularly, and one that occasionally grabs a piece), we will show everything together in one weekly image.
This week that started on February 3 and ended February 9, 2019 was a bit of a smorgasbord of products and franchises.
The first thing that came through the doors this week was an order from Gemini Collectibles, that resulted in getting Blox figures of Count Chocula, Boo Berry and my favorite Frankenberry! These were purchased for a cool $8.99 total! Also from Gemini Collectibles was the Pop! Star Wars Combat Assault Tank Trooper 2017 Summer Convention Exclusive, which cost all of $6.99.
Towards the middle of the week I lucked out at the local Gamestop on a sale on their Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Mystery Minis. I grabbed four boxes since they were only $2.50 each. I scored R2-D2, Chewbacca and two Darth Vaders (only one seen in this pick, because doubles always go to the office for workstation decorations).
Next was a trip to Augusta, GA and the first stop was Target. Unfortunately the only DC Primal Age figures on hand were Aquaman, Green Lantern, Scarecrow and Wonder Woman. Since I already have Wonder Woman, I was able to leave her and snag the other three. Hopefully these do not have the horrible leg break problem that some have been commenting about across the Internet. Each of these figures were regular priced at $11.99.
I then head to the mall, where I hit up Barnes and Noble and tried to purchase a couple of Cuphead figures, but unfortunately, no one was there to check me out in their super secretive Funko section, so I put the figures back and left. Their loss…
I continued on my journey to Hot Topic were I found the Hot Topic Exclusive Pop Heroes Superman Flashpoint for $7.00, Hot Topic Exclusive Pop Heroes DC Comics Bombshells Hawkgirl for $5.00 and finally the Hot Topic Exclusive Pop Star Wars Ahsoka for $7.00.
Finally I scored a cheap Pop 8-Bit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael figure today at Ross for only $1.99. The sad part is the stupid price sticker on the front will not come off. I started trying to peel it and was clearly leaving sticker residue on the plastic, so I just left it for now. Since we are primarily out-of-box collectors, it doesn’t hurt my feelings too bad.

That’s it for this week. I am sure most weeks will be much smaller, but I think this is a good start for the website! If you like what we have started here, please like the site and always leave comments good or bad.
Thanks for looking and May the Force Be With You!
