Eggsy and Galahad all suited up:  Both figures come with interchangeable heads and hands, figure stands, and knife shoes.  While Eggsy is armed with a rifle, pistol, and Gazelle’s prosthetic leg while Galahad carries a similar firearm along with a folded as well as deployed umbrella.

Yeah, I couldn’t resist.

Decided to pick up the Kingsman: The Secret Service Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (No. 072) and Harry “Galahad” Hart (No. 073) MAFEX figures after learning from online sources that they had just arrived in Manila this past week.  I don’t pick up very many figures anymore–partly due to waining interest and the incredibly substandard quality that defines a number of today’s products–outside of say Funko’s Rick and Morty line, NECA’s Colonial Marines line, select Lego mini-figures, and the occasional Batman related villain.

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

I could totally relate.

Rick and Morty POP Collection 1

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…
