Finally got my Gold R2-D2 Hot Topic Exclusive. I do like the look of these Gold Pops. The base and dome, well, that needs some work. Overall though, glad I got it for the discounted Black Friday price.

Found a Mystery Mini Greedo at my local Walmart a few nights ago; but kinda sad how I came across it. I went looking for the exclusive Cantina Faceoff set; and I noticed that 3 Mystery Mini boxes had been ripped open. Of the boxes ripped open, the following Mystery Mini pieces were left behind: Jawa (missing black base), a black base (missing figurine) and a complete Greedo. I put Greedo back inside one of the trashed boxes and paid for it. Such a pathetic thing to see, especially how cheap those thins are. I just hope the culprit was some lousy, misguided kid and not an adult.

I think you need to give in to the gold ones. You know you secretly want to.

Just kidding. That attitude you have about not falling for it is what I'm trying to adopt in my collecting habits. So far, no movie moments, besides I haven't seen any in person.

Stopped at Hot Topic today and exchanged a Kevin Smith pop for a Kylo TIE Silencer, just paid the difference. They almost didn't want to do it but did since I was paying more. Also scored a Luke Speeder chase from Gamestop yesterday...passed on Leia for now.

$32.50 at Hot Topic. Freakin' ridiculous...I wouldn't have paid the full price although I technically did. Worked out in my favor cause I didn't want that Kevin Smith pop any longer.

Thanks for the info H_L_H. I'm going to be hitting a Barnes today. I have the Kylo TIE POP! on pre-order with Toy Wars for $19.99; a great price but, if past orders are any indication, it will take forever to ship.

I went on my very first Pop hunt at Mall of America, my first time going there in I believe 5 years. It's also my first time seeing a Box Lunch store in-person. They had the chrome BB-9E, which I of course bought. Might be the coolest looking Pop from the TLJ line, so I was bummed it was an exclusive to a store I don't have near me, but things worked out in the end. :)

Their HT is conveniently almost directly across from BL, and they have two gigantic Pop walls. Their store is twice the size of mine.

I also checked out the SW Dorbz at the Disney Store. I chose not to buy any, but I wanted to see them in-person anyway just for the heck of it. I don't think they had all of them. The selection was kinda small.

In the end I just bought BB-9E, but still had a lot of fun. There were a few others I want that I saw (non-SW), but they will likely be easily available in my area soon, if they aren't already, so I decided to hold off on buying them for now.

Bought the Movie Moments Cantina Face-Off set yesterday. My local Walmart had a MOUNTAIN of the Movie Moments sets. But I can't recall seeing the Bespin Duel set; but they had all the others. Also found a couple Cantina Aliens three-packs and one Rebel Pilots three-pack, but the box was in fairly rough shape.

Cloud City Duel (Bespin) is a Walgreens exclusive. It has been marked down to $13 clearance at stores that still have it stock. Or grab it online:

Had my first double chase day, by finding the King Dice Chase (Hot Topic) and Jake "The Snake" Roberts (Walmart). Also picked up the new Harley Quinn (Punk Rocker) HT exclusive and the Ready Player One Parzival HT exclusive to allow me to use my last Hot Cash coupon. To round out the day, I got my Dryden Voss (Error Box-name mispelled and missing scars) from FYE and the "More Cowbell" SNL Pop.

Good job there Funko with the Vos pop, great quality control. Sigh.

My Toucan Sam arrived today. Had a brief moment before leaving for work and noticed a crease in the top of the box flap. Now it isn't a crease thru the whole top flap but just on the outside of the top flap. Obviously a production error which I have never seen before.

I could be upset, but Toucan Sam looks awesome and I know nobody would want to hear these useless complaints. Especially from those who missed out from that Funko Shop disaster.

So ignore my rambling, please. Ha!

I grabbed the "Hulk Busting Out of Hulkbuster" Pop today.
Glad that you and others are enjoying this Gamestop Pop. It looks impressive. Personally, I don't think its a must buy. But, I may change my mind.

I got my Hellboy with Crown, (Anung Un Rama) in from Woozy Moo online. Love it.

After not buying much for a few months, I ended up with two 3 Pop hauls over the last two Sundays at HT. First I saw Gwenom and the reboot Lara Croft, two new commons I had to have, and I added my first common Solo Pop of the Range Trooper to get the 3 for $27 deal. Then the next Sunday I went back to buy the rest of the commons I wanted of Han, Lando, and Qi'ra. They had a B2G1 free deal on SW Pops going on. I also used a free $5 reward for my guest list anniversary. It was the perfect time to take care of my common wants. :)

Thanks to Hail_Lord_Helmet, I now have the HT flocked Tigger dorbz. One of the few dorbz I love. Enjoy your chase Georgie.

I also got the new Disney exclusive Diamond Collection Tinker Bell Rock Candy this week. One of my favorite Funko pieces even though I am not a Disney collector or much of a fan of the Rock Candy line. Cannot recommend this Tinker Bell enough if you were considering it at all. It is that good.

Stopped into a new privately owned Toy Shop, Smash Toys and Collectibles and picked up the Roger Rabbit Pop (been eyeing this at conventions) and the Smugglers Bounty Annual Gift Vader Award. Both were below PPG value, which is all you can ask now-a-days.

For around $38, I got the Funko TIE Fighter Pilot with TIE Fighter (#221), NYCC Metallic TIE Fighter Pilot (#51) and a Hasbro Rebels TIE Pilot. Not bad, I think!

Bought the Wacky Wobblers TIE Fighter Pilot yesterday. I only own a few Wobblers (Greedo, Shoretrooper, First Order Snowtrooper) but the Pilot was high on my list.

I braved Frank & Sons and managed to limit myself to only getting Jolly Roger (regular version) for $65 and Indy's Ride for $50, box was a bit dinged on it but I didn't mind especially at that price.
There were a few other things that I wanted but I was checking eBay and the Pop price guide and knew what was a good deal and what wasn't.
Pretty much everyone had Pikachu's, anywhere from $30 - $90! The other Target ad icon exclusives were going for crazy prices too. Glad I am only a casual collector or this would drive me nuts.

A nice collector on a Disney FB page I belong to hooked me up with a Splash Mountain set at cost plus shipping! So thankful I didn't have to resort to eBay

In the past week, I picked up the following:

Splash Mountain Set-from Shop Disney
Han Solo & Silk exclusives-from Walgreens online
Regular Cap'N Crunch Pez-from Target. (Saw it sitting on a shelf, all by itself)
Target Twinkie the Kid, Regular & Chase-Took two stores to get them. The Chase was out on a shelf with other Pops. Very shocked by that.
Fantastic Beasts Baby Nifflers 2-Pack-from Gamestop

A successful pickup, I'd say.

Funko shop Bao. Perfect box design, even I have to keep this one in box as an OOB collector.

Target Twinkie The Kid. My only Ad Icon. Went to an out of town Target for other things when it opened and they happened to have a fresh case out with someone else taking the chase.

Walgreens Han Solo on order.

Congrats on your scores this week Antman.

I got the Snap, Crackle and Pop set from Funkoshop, Han from Walgreens.com, Yoda from Hottopic.com and I ordered all the 90th Anniversary Mickey Mouse figures from Barnes and Noble. I also picked up a couple of figs. on ebay.

I still need to track down Twinkie the Kid. I only hit one Target today and I wasn't thinking of Twinkie. I did see about 4 each of the common Tom and Jerry on the shelf.
