Lately, I've finally found Mr. Bean and picked up 2 Kurt Cobains (regular, and Hot Topic exclusive)
Hot Topic has a Parks & Rec two-pack of Tom and Jean-Ralphio.
So worth the $30 price tag of Jean-Ralphio.

Target has to be the worst place for Pop exclusives.
Nothing ever shows up on shelves.
I'm pretty sure the Bob Ross with squirrel is a myth.
It makes me worry about the upcoming Jurassic Park Sexy Goldblum or the Tommy Boy Fat Guy in a Little Coat exclusives.

And the fan community is pissing and moaning because the Yondu ("I'm Mary Poppins, y'all") has yet to appear in stores or online, despite an estimated shelf date of March 3. Two fucking days late and you'd think it's the end of the world and Target is run by inept morons.

Found a pic of the Lemmy. It is even cooler that I expected. Are they really making some from Slapshot?

My desk at home has a raised shelf in the corner for a monitor. That is where I keep the McFarlane Hanson Brothers and Bob & Doug McKenzie. Funko Mr. T and Bob Ross are there as well. Those are pretty much the only toys I have out for display in the house.

No Slapshot. That was my Wishlist.

Add The Iron Giant to my haves. The Ready Player One Pops are out and he's included and I bought him.

Ok. Wasn't sure if the wishlist meant that they made them and you wish you had them, or if you were just wishing they existed.

They have so many licenses, anything seems possible.

I'm really trying to limit my collecting. It was easy to quit modern Star Wars and GI Joe 3.75" stuff because they quit making the things I was interested in. I'm down to just the occasional vintage Star Wars figure. Now Funko has to come along and make cool things to tempt me.

No kidding. I wasn't seriously collecting anything.
It was just the occasional Marvel Legends or Black Series figure.
Now, partly because they seem to greet any license they want, I'm hunting for Pops.

Found the Target online exclusive Gizmoduck today for $6 and change in the online return endcap.

Also, if anyone buys an Iron Giant Pop be careful. The limbs are flimsy. I snapped his nearly leg opening it.
Thank god for superglue.

We've been doing a re/watch of (the criminally underrated) Scrubs lately and the other day I commented I wished they made Scrubs Pops.
And today I see on a Pops facebook page that Funko has the license, with JD, Turk, Elliot and Dr Cox planned.

I'm surprised Carla or Janitor aren't there. Maybe in a second wave if these prove popular enough (along with Ted, Dr. Kelso, and the Todd).

I’m of the opinion Scrubs is the best sitcom of all time.

That’s right. The best. Come at me, bro.

I'm not arguing. It's definitely top 3 for me.

I'm surprised these are still a thing. I really am.

At this point, I can even buy goddamn Pop!s of my neighbor.

I went to the Trade Night at a local toy shop over the weekend. They do prize drawings during the event. 3 of the prizes were Funko Pops. There was Tim the Enchanter (Monty Python), and then two SDCC exclusives (Freddy Funko with a Happy Days jacket and some other one). I won one of the drawings, but the person ahead of me grabbed the Tim the Enchanter. I ended up with a McFarlane Legends Wayne Gretzky.

I did happen to trade for an Adrian Peterson Funko Pop. I'm going to turn it into the last place trophy for one of our fantasy football leagues. The plan is to put a small twig in his hand since he was suspended for beating his kid with a switch.
