Funko POP!: A Completists Paradise…or Nightmare (July 22, 2018)

07/22/2018 Leave a comment

Despite the growing popularity of the Funko POP! Vinyl line in the Philippines, I’ve held off[i] buying any of their products largely due to their simplicity and lack of articulation.  I think I may have also reached a point wherein I swore I would never buy anything Funko.

Well, that all change in 2017 when I was introduced[ii] to Adult Swim’s animated science fiction adventure comedy series called Rick and Morty.  If that introduction wasn’t enough, I was completely hooked after watching this video below (Note: This is the uncensored version.):

I know right!  This show has everything!  An 80’s nod here and there.

I could totally relate.

My Rick and Morty Funko Pop! Collection Checklist (Part 1 of 3): Finding the GameStop and Hot Topic exclusives will be a tall order.

Interest leads to Want

But like with many other things in life, interest oftentimes leads to Want. With Want sometimes gets confused with Need.

That’s where Funko comes in—supplying that void called Want/Need.  The toy manufacturer gained the licensing rights to produce Rick and Morty merchandise and boy, did they produce.  As of this post, there have been 46 regular and exclusive Vinyl figures, 2 regular and exclusive POP! Rides, and a 2-pack exclusive that have been released into primary and secondary markets. Read more…

Clockwise: Present and accounted for at The Gathering 11th TAGCOM (Toys and Hobbies Convention). | Looking though the lens of a toy for sale at the convention. | Photo opportunity with Justice PH. | Kong: Skull Island merchandise. | All ready for Disneyland: Some hats that we picked up. | If money were no object, I would have scooped up all of the all of the available Fallout 4 5″ Vault Boy 111 Bobbleheads in a heartbeat.  Pictured are the Melee Weapons, Strength, and Repair Bobbleheads.

I ate my words today.

What I thought would be (at the most) a half-day event–The Gathering 11th TAGCOM [Toys and Hobbies Convention]–turned into a whole day affair.

Yep.  The Fam and I ended up staying from 11 am till closing.[i]  Even I can’t believe it myself.

It was loads of fun.  Lots to see. But we were all dead tired by the end of it all.

A fun and fulfilling kind of tired.

The Sights

Despite only occupying what seemed like a very generous 3/4 of the Megatrade Hall 3, there seemed to be a little something for everyone.  Character beanies and dinosaurs aside, what stood out for me was the amount of Godzilla merchandise spread out among the vendors.  There was a ton and I’m sure they have been around, but for me, it was like they all appeared out of nowhere.
