Sorry I’ve been so MIA lately everyone! I haven’t even been busy I’ve just been lazy and hadn’t gotten around to taking pictures of my newest POP’s and Dorbz! So without further ado here’s my update below the cut!
I got back from visiting family at the beginning of the month and I had a few POP’s and Dorbz waiting for me when I did. I was super excited because finally my Chase Reptar, Chase Tommy, and Teenage Groot Pre-Orders had arrived! I had been waiting since April for Reptar and Tommy to come in and was so excited that they finally did. I also had pre-ordered Chuckie so he was finally here as well since he shipped with my Chase Tommy.
A few days after I got back I went over to Hot Topic to use some Hot Cash and see if I could find Launchpad McQuack, Gossalyn Mallard, and Stiles Stilinski. I found Launchpad and Gossalyn pretty quickly but sadly Stiles was not in stock. But they had regular Tommy so I grabbed him as well. I also one day got a message on the Funko boards asking if I still needed the Target Spiderman: Homecoming two pack and since I did they picked one up for me which was super awesome! Then during my SDCC Hunt which I will talk about a little further down I snatched up the new Simba!
Then onto the SDCC hunt day! I was mainly on the hunt for Tigger, Harry Potter with Broom, Luna Lovegood, and the Aladdin Magic Carpet Dorbz ride. I knew my only bet to get the Chip & Dale was to order from FYE’s website since there was not one around me. So my first stop of the day was Barnes & Noble, I got there about 20 minutes after they opened and missed out on Tigger but not Harry Potter.
Then I headed on over to the mall which was right next door to Barnes & Noble and waited outside of Box Lunch until they opened at 10. There were a good few people in front of me in line and I struck up conversation with some nice guys in front of me. Then when the store opened I headed straight for my Aladdin, since I’m pretty short and every person in front of me where tall or bigger guys I had to squeeze a little bit. I asked one guy very nicely if he could grab Aladdin for me but he made a really rude comment and grabbed one and walked away. Thankfully there was someone much nicer that grabbed one and handed him to me. After that I looked to see if they had Stiles but sadly they did not but I did find that Simba so it was a win.
Next I booked it over to Hot Topic in hopes of snatching up a Luna and thankfully there were plenty of her left! I looked there as well to see if Stiles had come in stock but he sadly had not yet. I wanted to ask at the register but it wasn’t my normal clerk who I always have great conversations with and knew I was looking for him so I didn’t. Anyways when I got home I was able to snag BOTH Chip & Dale from FYE and the Tigger from Barnes and Noble online! So I was super happy that I was able to get all the SDCC exclusives that I wanted!!
Lastly we come to the Dorbz and with the announcement that Aladdin was going to be an SDCC Exclusive I jumped on ordering Jasmine, Rajah, and the Genie off of Amazon while I was away. Minus Jafar and regular sized Abu, which I don’t want either of those anyways, I had my complete little Aladdin collection! Now if only we could get an Aladdin POP!
