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 could totally relate.

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…

On September 26, 2015, FullyBooked in Bonifacio High Street will be celebrating Batman’s 76th anniversary (and what I have come to understand is to be the official “Batman Day”), with acclaimed artist David Mack (Daredevil, Fight Club 2).

Mack, who extended his stay in Manila after the AsiaPOP Comicon last week, is set to do some live art as well as sign his book and several of his limited edition Batman prints. The event is slated to start at 2pm today.

In conjunction with the Batman Day event, FullyBooked is offering 20% in most of their selection. I also noticed several Batman tilted going for 50%.

Happy Batman Day to all!
