Omg the last ever disney treasures box! Ps. Don’t be that person that comments “wow spoiler” in the comments after scrolling. It’s clearly a “spoiler” it does not need a warning label. I hate spoilers too when they are by surprise but this isn’t so there. And people are going to get mad that I am saying this but, I wish it could have been better. I really wanted up. Still happy to have the pop though.
Some new new! First bit of luck today from WM since none of these had protection. 3 in 1 big box and 1 in a fitted shipping box. Awesome! Now to complete my Wall-E on Monday and my Up with finding flocked dug.
Liiiiiiiiiit! Shoutout to #bigapplecollectibles for this awesome pop. Once again I love that they will ship the pop in the protector you buy. That’s a must for me with my anxiety (especially about getting pop mail). Another successful shipment thanks @bigapplecollectibles !
Finally started my Disney set!! With a big want. So exciting. Got him from #thepopshack and they had great shipping for a great price. Came in a fitted box surrounded by peanuts. I would buy from them again if they had more stuff on the website for sure. Thanks @thepopshack !
Last but not least I finally acquired my biggest March want!! It’s so surreal to have this in my hands. Ordered it from @bigapplecollectibles after a gift card was given due to a damaged pop (great customer service btw). It was a good price to begin with and so it was a great deal. Thanks #bigapplecollectibles that’s why I keep shopping with you guys! Swipe for more shots. Ps also ordered it with a pop protector in my order and they shipped it inside of it so that’s awesome for extra protection. Gonna use that from now on.
This pop is good....another!!! Guys I’m at a loss for words. My 1st asia exclusive and I am over the moon that it’s my boy thor. One step closer to completing the IW set. I’m 😍. All possible thanks to #chronotoys make sure you guys follow him and check it out his shop for amazing pops. Swipe for glow!
Always a great experience shopping with #big3collectibles ! Happy to start off my Matrix set. Looking for a deal on a good condition Neo please if you guys know any reputable sellers. Thanks! #thebig3collectibles
And with this mail call, we have a complete mad max set. I feel so freaking happy and relieved. It’s a huge accomplishment for me. Of course I never hope for new waves but I will buy them regardless haha. Swipe for more!
So I am very grateful that box lunch was able to supply me with the commons I could not get at hot topic because I believe the employee at HT is a collector, and that is kind of messed up. They had thanos and spider at the counter that I really wanted. I asked if I could buy and he said no those are on hold and proceeded to take them to the back. The employees here have repeatedly told me they don’t do holds anymore. So I think those were pulled from shelves for an employee who didn’t think someone would ask for them. I was livid. I always say I am not going back to that store but it is my closest. Luckily they had them both plus more at BL. Aside from that bs I am so happy to have them.
Some random HT/BL pickups as fillers to get the sales. Keeping my diamond set current. Finished off riverdale set. Jumanji was a gift. I am a little iffy on bright pops because I feel like I want the chase to complete the set but it doesn’t seem worth chase price for that little glow. Halp. Also got the demo common because I preordered the chase that will hopefully ship soon.
DYINGGGGG!!! Mint AF!!! So excited to have these, in case you happen to have not seen my previous dramatic posts. Now if I could only get this lucky with killmonger! One will be out of box or saved for backup. Happy girl right now!
My haul from yesterday! Rictus from funko shop. Stiles from #big3collectibles and my sister got me enchantress from Facebook. She has been on my want list for soooo long I am stoked to have her she is gorgeous. Splurged on stiles because I never got a chance to start the set and his price was crazy so I got him for a great deal. Ended up with 2 rictus because I asked my sister to help me out the day eccc dropped and that’s all we could get lol (he is also the first ECCC pop in my collection). Also my posters don’t have frames yet so they’re just chilling.
Got my first IW pop! Gonna try to worry more about exclusives and hopefully just buy a bundle after shops start getting them. I have been refreshing the page and luckily it went back up and my local TRU had him. So happy! It was risky heading out in this rainy weather here in LA but worth it!
The last of the WM exclusives is in! At least for now haha. The spare came in slightly bent in the back. It’s weird that WM doesn’t send return slips anymore so not sure what to do. Might keep to trade one day? I should not have purchased so many of all the WM exclusives for fear of them selling out. Have some waiting at pickup lol
I got these pretties in the mail today! I don’t collect R&M but my sister likes the show so I bought them as a gift. Now I’m jealous because of that glow tho! They are so freaking cool I want them now. Boxes were properly packed but rick was puffy as seen in pics. Good luck to everyone waiting to receive or purchase. These are a definite win and will for sure go up in value soon. Swipe to see more and glow shots! Pops were charged with a UV flashlight and photographed with a DSLR (no edit or photoshop).
WM filler pops arrived. I needed to add them for free shipping lol. Sad to discover that yet again I messed up and bought a double. She also came damaged so I had to get a refund. But yay another to the marvel set!
Got my best buy Dustin! Sadly he did not survive the journey unscathed. One is more damaged than the other so he will either be oob or returned. The one I am keeping has a small slash on the side. Like I always say I never plan on selling so minor stuff won’t keep me up at night. Happy to have finally gotten him at retail. I almost paid 20+ dollars when I was hot on the trail of getting all the stranger things pops possible. Now to wait for the Barnes and noble one. Swipe to see more pictures.
And the much anticipated Walmart loot! Glad I splurged on the $5.99 shipping (per pop) to have these in my hand 2 days after ordering. They are all great and arrived in good condition (aside from my extra bp). Thank you WM for not completely screwing me. Swipe for closeups and glow shots!
My BOGO GameStop order came in!! 2 separate shipments. Horror arrived perfectly, Doctor strange got some dings. But he was free soo okay lol. So happy to have freddy and jason at retail. The #retailqueen strikes again! And happy to finally have hopper. Next his chase twin!
Happy mail call! The super sweet @meligonz was kind enough to help me add this baby to my collection. How cute is he!? So grateful right now. Thank you Melissa! If you don’t already follow her guys you really need to. 💜 #nikond3400
Always a great trip to #thepopcave in Santa Clarita. Did the usual: pay/pickup preorders and bring an extra home haha. This is my happy place! Make sure you guys make it a must see! Thanks so much as always @thepopcave_ for the great service.
My Buffy set is finally in my hands! Straight from #bigpopshop and they are in pretty good condition (aside from some creases from shipping). This show is very special to me and it’s extra special to be able to have these.
Hot Cash splurge! So nice to see that total cut in half. Paid $100 for all of this. Comforters on clearance. Jewelry BOGO $5. 2x $5 rewards. I still paid $6 for the jughead I didn’t want so it will end up around my house somewhere because I gave the 2nd one I got to my sister lol. Can’t even sell it because it’s damaged. Might give to my sister so she can carry in her car OOB or something. Despite that mishap I am very happy with my purchase and I don’t think there is something new coming out so I might have leftover coupons.
First stop of my wild Friday night was my favorite pop place #thepopcave ! Picked up/paid preorders per usual and I can never leave without getting something else haha. A must have addition to my marvel set. The glow is cool! The GR glow is awesome too. Happy I got my walking dead and Jurassic park set. So exciting! I go at least once a month guys it’s a great place with great owners and great service. Check them out in Santa Clarita!
Mail call from HT! Came in its own fitted box but sometimes I think the weather causes the cardboard to shrink/expand so this had to be pulled out because it was such a tight fit. So happy to add another to the ST section.
Sooo I got my first order from @insanewebdeals in the mail and didn’t realize at first that I had ordered something “different”. I wanted the blue box version which is why I ordered from them and I got the black box. I sent out an email about it so hopefully something good comes of it. I did like the secure shipping though, every 4in pop comes shipped in a thin pop protector. Probably could still use some bubble wrap but it’s better than nothing right? 400
Disappointed with @officialfye for this one. Box was great so the damage came from before it was placed in the box. It sucks that companies will still send damaged goods. Bad quality control. Large crease in the back and small tear at the top. But I’m too far for a return and mail returns are too risky. 2nd L of 2018.
Mail call! First up is my hot topic order. Pleasantly surprised with their VIP shipping for $2. That beats having to make it out to a store. Also they are getting better at shipping. Most individual pops come in their fitted sorter box now but 2/3 here came just with bubble wrap. But a lot of it. They all arrived in great condition. I was hoping for a chase but no luck. Secondly I got a pop from a super awesome friend on here @renegades_of_funko ! He helped me add a want to my collection and that gets a plus in my book, make sure you check out his page guys! Check out that glow! Thanks again Christian.
My first offerup purchase/first 2018 purchase was my biggest want of 2017!!! He is finally mine! I paid a little more than I would have liked for a non-mint box but I am still super happy. A tiny bit irked that the seller also raised the price on the spot but luckily I had the cash. I can’t wait to see him next to his ragnarok friends.
Okay here is how I’m ending 2017. My tiny collection from 2016 before the serious collecting began. 16 pops haha. And here I am now at just about 400. I don’t wanna think about how many I have added since March or how my much $ I have spent so if you’re brave you can do the math. Issswaytoomuch lol. I’m very grateful to have been able to amass this collection in just a few months. And now that I’m basically out of room, you’ll find me in a corner crying in the fetal position. This is an entire wall, what the hell am I gonna do lol? Anyways I want to give a shout out to all of the great places/people that helped me get some great pieces because as I have mentioned before every pop I have purchased is special to me regardless of value. I hope we are all able to continue to make our pop dreams come true in 2018 and beyond. Tagging some shops in the pics that have helped contribute to my addiction erm I mean collection. Enjoy my transformation. It was hard getting these pictures haha. Sayonara 2017 and cheers to 2018!
Okay so somehow I was able to choose a top 10 of 2017 out of everything I’ve purchased this year. Here we go.
1. Remy. This was my first online purchase in March, that launched my active collecting. Got it on amazon and was surprised with a chase. I admit I was a newb and was wondering why I got something different than I had ordered haha never again. My first chase so it is very special to me. But more special because Ratatouille was my angel niece’s favorite movie.
2. Hei Hei. My first Comic Con mail piece ever.
3. Megazord. I was super bummed about missing this SDCC piece and was able to acquire it a few weeks after and I was so excited to obtain my biggest want.
4. Tattler Twins. My first time going to a local pop shop. Paid $35 for it. My cousin decided to bring it inside for me and he dropped it on a corner. My first devastating damage. I cried haha.
5. Willow. Scoring this at retail was such a win because this was a major want and it was expensive everywhere else.
6. Pennywise chase. I had been wanting this since I saw the first images. It was a glorious pickup.
7. La Muerte. My most extravagant birthday gift that came at a time where I really needed the love.
8. Thanos Glow. I had been wanting this for a long time but was too stingy haha. The glow is magnificent on it and I love it so much.
9. Steve. I had given up on this piece when I saw the price it was going for. Then I got a chance to purchase at retail and I consider it a huge win.
10. Friends. Last but not least this is not just one pop but I did get them all at once as a birthday gift, and it was epic to be able to complete this set.
My other haul was from HT. I went in to return something and walked out with this haha. They were 3 for $27 and had so many I had been wanting, I couldn’t pass. Riverdale set complete. New Twilight addition. And I started my Mad Max set that I am so excited to complete. The movie is a favorite of mine so all the pops are must. They are so perfect and the box detail is dope. Chrome backgrounds with little quotes on the insert tab. Love!
Ended 2017 with a bang! Lol. I headed over to my pop place (@thepopcave_ ) to pick up/pay for preorders and I walked out with a major haul. Got an aladdin chase bundle (missing jasmine), home alone set, grinch chase bundle, and I got another marvel addition. My awesome sister always spoils me when we go so she got me the Miguel chase I have been wanting. So happy! I’m so grateful and just lucky to be able to have all of these in my collection. Don’t ever hesitate to check the shop out guys, great service and inventory to choose from. Thanks @thepopcave_ !!
Okay officially my last pop package this year I hope haha. Forgot I ordered this. $5 on amazon. Yes I like twilight and I’m not ashamed. I was in HS when it came out so of course I swooned over Edward. 3 down now I need the rest. 370.
She’s here! They did a decent job packing I just wish they hadn’t forced the box in when they could’ve just rotated. She was squeezed in so slight wear on the corners but overall in great condition. Now I really need giant hulk but I will keep on holding out until I can find one retail locally.
