Got myself a Mega Man. They're neat little things, but I doubt I'll be a serious collector.

I wish they'd expand on the TMNT line. Give us the 2003 Turtles, give us movie turtles from the first couple of movies etc.

I like how they seem to have lots of different licenses. From Astérix to Street Fighter Funko Pops. Hell I've even seen a Darkwing Duck Funko Pop before. Speaking of Street Fighter, why is there a yellow and a green Blanka? I know swap palettes are a thing in fighting games in order to avoid confusion, but was that really needed? Seems like a clever way to get more collector's money.

That being said, never got any of their figures. I don't even think they look bad overall despite the big heads and round pitch black eyes. Thing is, I was never the type of person to collect things just for the sake of it. Buying a figure just to stand there and never touching it other than when I have to clean the dust off of it just seems pointless and a waste of money to me. I also stopped buying action figures once I outgrew playing with toys. I'd just buy a few Funko Pops... and then forget their existence or not even notice them any more after a few days.

I'm not interested in collecting many, I have 2 and am thinking of getting Shredder, but not sure if to get the funko pop or bobble head.

I'd go for a bobble head, myself. Anything "normal" looking is better than those marshmallow headed black eyed... things...

I ended up getting a bunch in a row as a birthday gifts

Ceres sent a Dalek Sec figure, knowing I like Daleks (and not realizing that Sec is the Best Dalek), then only a little while later did my boyfriend give me the whole BoJack Horseman set.

So of course things look a little weird when they're all together

I wouldn't collect any others past that, unless maybe I found another Dalek or two.

I'm hoping the He-Man pops hit my area soon, I believe they're already out.

I've got a She-Hulk POP (the only one I've ever owned); I might get those TMNT figures in February to keep my display shelf green

Sorry to revive a thread.. (which also seems to have a few banned members in it)

Those of you who buy these, has anyone bought them from Pop in a box? Just saw it come up while I was searching for something and wondered if anyone had used it before.

I have in the past. It's kinda cool cause you can list the Pops you already own and list the ones you want, so when you get them, they're random, but randoms of what you want. Or just flat out buy the one you want.

I don't know where you are, but for me in the US, they take a while they're mailed from the UK, so patience is a key.

My ex and I subbed, the funny part is most of the time it was Pops she wanted, based on Disney princess stuff. I did score a Pac-Man pop and a 60's Catwoman pop though.

Thanks, turns out they are sold out of the one I want anyway but useful to know for another time.
