Faked Out By Funko


If you were lucky enough NOT to order from the Funko Shop on Wednesday last week.  You didn't have to add a Funko Pop to your collection that you didn't want nor need.  In their ultimate Freddy Funko wisdom, Funko decided to throw a curve ball to the bots that have been plaguing our collecting efforts for a couple of years.  Find out what happened in the video below,  Also, this week we are reviewing the Box Lunch Exclusive Gold Star Lord Pop, Gamestop's Venomized Black Panter, a legit Funko Shop Figure Purple Sam and we have MacGyver in stock at our www.itsapopshop.com Online Store!

Where's That Pikachu?


I guess I didn't have enough Poke Balls to catch the Pikachu Funko Pop this week.  3 Targets in the area and only 1 "had" them in stock. But, the day was salvaged by finding another SDCC Funko that I didn't have and some others that were surprised finds.  I also did some Hot Wheels hunting but that video is for another time.  LOL!

Pop! Directors: Alfred Hitchcock


The Master of Suspense directed 53 films, won too many awards to mention
 and cemented his place as one of the most influential filmmakers in the world.
And now Alfred Hitchcock is available as a Pop! vinyl figure holding a movie
clapboard for Psycho, arguably his best-known film.

SDCC Funko Pop Haul


We came we saw and We Funko Pop'd at this year's San Diego Comic Con.  Although, we only had a late Sunday slot to buy Funkos and there wasn't much left, we were able to order a few online and pick up a few at the con.  Check out the video below to see what we picked up!!

Who Could They Be At SDCC?!?


As we race toward this year's San Diego Comic Con all attendees (like me) have been bombarded with all the possibilities that may await them on Harbor Drive.  We also have begun to finalize plans, confirm reservations and start mapping out plans to best maximize our time there. I for one just changed hotels to be a little closer to the beach, the airport and the convention center.  This year we will be staying in San Diego in gorgeous Point Loma!! But, with all that being planned out, reserved and confirmed that isn't the only thing that is keeping us awake at night.  With SDCC announcing and implementing the new Exclusive Items Portals the anxiety has risen to a level 10 on the geek-o-meter. This year instead of standing in line for your favorite exclusive item or signing, SDCC rolled out their portal for a random drawing for Funko, Lego, Hasbro and UCC (what ever that is). For some of us that means we get a fair chance at getting in a desired line for a desired exclusive or autograph.  This year I will actually get some sleep.  Although, just getting into the Convention Hall can be a struggle in itself, knowing whether you have to stand in line only to stand in another line FOR A CHANCE at an exclusive is a little less stressful.  
But, this year I have a small advantage because of my Entertainment Earth distributor status.  I not only get to hang out at the VIP section in the booth.  I am able to get first in line passes and signings each day.  So, now my worry is WHO WILL THEY BE!!  I have researched a little and in the past Entertainment Earth has hosted the cast of Twin Peaks and the one and only William Shatner!! I begin thinking about the exclusives and what they have been posting on Twitter. The whole "Thanos" is coming and with exclusive items from Avengers Infinity War it makes me wonder will they host Josh Brolin for signings? Or someone from the movie.  Then I thought well they are getting a shared Funko Hellboy Exclusive.. Will Ron Pearlman be a guest in their booth? The possibilities are endless and I am now wondering how many times can I circle their booth without getting dizzy. 
Keep Checking back here, the facebook page and youtube for the live feeds and we will find out together!!

San Diego Comic Con Will Have No Shortage Of Funko Pops

With SDCC just around the corner Funko is revving up their Exclusive engines with not only Convention Only Exclusives but Shared Exclusives across a plethora of retail platforms.  And there is a Funko For everyone! From Marvel To DBZ to Hanna Barbera and Harry Potter to name a few, and the list continues to everyday.  

Good news for those of us who get to actually attend SDCC with hopes of making it in the coveted Funko Line,  SDCC is adopting the online lottery system for not only Funko, but all the major collectible retailers ie Hasbro and UCC to give every one an equal chance to get in the line to buy their favorite Pop! Lego Action figure or Exclusive toy.  Other Convention retailers take the presale approach and either ship your item after the con or you can pick it up at the con.  

But it is shaping up to be another good year on Harbor Bay and the fan boys and girls can't be more excited!!

Friend or Flipper?

Before everyone gets mad at me.. the image for this blog post is meant to be satire. 

BUY NOW!"NO FLIPPING TEE"
We have all come across or seen the Funko flippers in action.  I have personally run into flippers at the biggest convention in the nation, San Diego Comic Con.  I have also seen the guy who buys all the exclusives at every store on release day. Sometimes I blame myself for not getting up early enough to make it to your Hot Topic, Gamestop or Barnes & Noble to be first in line.  But hell if I get there early and 10th in line I expect to get something for my effort. When I was in line for The Wrecked experience at SDCC last summer I finally stood up to the flippers.  My niece and I were in line for the experience (sponsored by TBS) because 1. we had tickets and 2. they were giving away the exclusive Conan Pop ( Jedi).  Although, had we known that week they were giving them away everyday. We would have done the experience each day. LOL!! Anyway, we are in line in back of a young couple who were chatty and friendly, 
Flippers Behind Me. lol
 But, that only lasted until their friends showed up.  And I don't mean just one friend, it was an entire group of people who thought they could get in line with their friends and cut in front of us.  So, I made a comment about what was going on and they told me that they were being nice and going to let us in front of the group who just arrived.  I said enough!! You will not be cutting in front of us at all.  Then this one guy (you know it's always one) asked what the problem was with them getting in line with their friends.  I kindly told him I didn't care what he thought his reasoning was but he would not and could not go in front of us.  This was a group of flippers.. They were organized (same shirts and hats) and committed to get as many exclusives as they could.  They had set up people all over the convention in different areas so when they were done with one experience they could leave and go to the next and not wait in those SDCC 4 to 6 hour lines.  I over heard them talking about how they were already selling things that they had obtained (for free) and making hundreds of dollars.
  So, what do we do about flippers? Can we coexist? Can we still enjoy the hobby without being outsmarted and at times left at the mercy of price gouging aftermarket online.  Do we blame the stores for allowing for the purchase of more than one exclusive to a person?  Or do we blame the conventions for not maintain line ettiquette?  I think we just have to be as aggressive as they are and we have to help each other. I have joined a local group of collectors that help each other obtain and find the exclusives that we want. That's a step in the right direction. But, lastly, we are going to have to be the Early birds getting those Funko Worms until either the Funko market crashes or people start being decent.  I won't hold my breath for either. 
Comment Below Your Thoughts!!
