2017 was a good year for me! At 94 books and 34,763 pages, I would say it was very good indeed!
I know it's a little late to be making posts about the new year, but 2018 is going to be huge! Already in January, I've had a lot of fun with my love, my family, my friends, and my books.
Featured are some of my favorite geeky (okay, Funko) stuff I got in 2017! 2 sdcc exclusives of Harry on his broom and the occamy, an awesome SpiderMan, and the Enchanted Rose from Beauty & the Beast. My amazing boyfriend Nathan got me a licensed replica of the Triwizard tournament cup from Harry Potter, so of course I had to feature that too!
Happy new year, and happy reading to all!

Today was a major upset. I did not get to box lunch as early as @peruvianpopper and @sus.pop.bayarea but none the less, with more then enough time to be the 3rd person to get a chase. As time slowly winds down we begin to talk about what chase we want and what pops we have. Fast forwarding to about 10am an employee from @boxlunchnewpark SAW US 3 WAITING FOR THE CHASES. About 30 minutes later a family of 3 rush to the front of the store as in “belief that they have secured a chase for themselves”. Now at about 10:40am we all agree to start form the line, as we wait more and more people begin to line up behind us. At exactly 11am the doors up and we make our way to the register like a normal pop collector. While we are doing that that, the family of 3 are rushing to take a shorter route and get to the register as well. As soon as they got to the register one of the girl yells out “I want the hellboy chase”. The boxlunch employee is stunned and has no idea what to do, so what he does is come back and tells us “so our manager said that since you were on the bench that is not part of the line so therefore you are not obligated to get a chase”. The whole situation was handled horrible in my opinion!
1. The employee saw us waiting for the chases
2. Rushing to the register and yelling
3. We were in a line in the store.
Lastly 4. The employee did not see anything wrong about what the girls did. We totally understand that chases are hard to come across but some “collectors” or flippers do not understand the meaning of being patient or respectful to real collectors.
Boxlunch need to either do the number system that Hot Topic use to do or leave the chase in the back wall. It’s also not fair these two girl were able to buy two chases with the same card. If you have any questions or want a picture of the people just let me or any of the following collectors know. #funkopop#funkopops#funkofunatic#funkofamily#funkofanatic#popfigures#funkopopvinyl#popfunko#funkopop#funkoaddict#orignalfunko#funkomania#funkocommunity#funkovinyl#popvinyl
Today’s wild find with a great story: There I was in Barnes and Noble and I see another collector reach for the Black Panther Chase before I could. I tell him “Wow looks like I just missed that one..nice find!” He goes “Oh do you want it? I’m undecided about this one” I told him he found it first and he really didn’t have to..but he insisted and let me take it.
Found Rose for clearance at Wal-Mart for $5. Now with Supreme Leader Snoke, I have 2 pop figures from The Last Jedi and 23 figures total. Considering there's over 200 of them, that's not a lot. Being that there's no way I will be able to collect them all, I'm good with what I have now.
Yeti Treasure 002: RuPaul Pop Figure. I’ve been a RuPaul fanatic since the 90’s, and the fact that there is now a Pop figure of him makes me so happy. Now if I could only get the damn RuPaul dolls he used to sell on his site... I was too poor then; too poor now 🤷🏻♂️
While I’m home for a couple days I HAD to swing by my favorite pop stop @boxlunchtemecula. If you’re a Funko collector or just like nerd culture and you live close by then check it out! Or find one close to your area because they’re amazing! Was so lucky to get a Box Lunch exclusive Punk Eleven from season 2 of Stranger Things. I know her pink dress from season one is more recognizable but I am obsessed with how great this one looks. My only complaint is I don’t know why they gave her a box of eggos when she really didn’t carry a box this season. Having said that, the small detail on the box is PHENOMENAL so I won’t complain. Also happy that I got it for the price I did because she’s incredibly pricey online.
I also got the common Kurt Cobain pop figure since Nirvana was a huge part of my childhood. There were a couple exclusives I could have gotten but I think the green shirt is his most iconic attire. Also love the subtle detail they snuck in of him being a left handed guitarist which unless you knew he was you wouldn’t notice on the figure. Guitar itself looks good too. Overall a great find!
#currentlyreading Miracleman - Book Two: The Red King Syndrome by The Original Author. If this volume is even half as good as Book One was then I'm in for a real treat this afternoon. Everybody's favourite Gunslinger, Roland, is along for this journey with me because he confused Red King for Crimson King. Silly Roland!
