December 2020 Funko Pop Haul

Hey welcome back for another haul post featuring your favorite Pop collector. This is me, Matthew and I am to share with you another post revealing my up to date collection Funko Pops. This post will feature Pop figures from the month of December in the last year of 2020.

Before we begin, check out my girlfriend’s fanfiction at Vocal if you love Loonatics Unleashed:


Anyway, check out my treasure!

77. Silent Knight Batman (Hot Topic Exclusive)

78. Beanstalk Mickey

79. Mickey Mouse

I bought these three figures while shopping for a Christmas gift for my brother. After buying him Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War for the PS4, I decided to treat myself for some shopping for myself. I went to Hot Topic and indulge on Pop figures. I went and grabbed three figures. The first thing I got was Batman Silent Knight. I believe it’s one of those special festive figures because on the box it shows DC characters celebrating Christmas. This Batman figure has an icy appearance along with snowflakes on his cowl and cape. The next figures I bought is two versions of Mickey Mouse. One is from the Disney classic short “Mickey and the Beanstalk” and the other is a standard Mickey Mouse figure. I am a huge fan of Mickey Mouse ever since I was a little kid. I couldn’t resist getting Mickey and I wanted to him be part of my collection.

80. Funko Box: Dragon Ball Z Only at GameStop

Since my family knows I love Dragon Ball Z and Pops, my brother got me this Mystery Box contain DBZ Pop figures and collector’s editions toys. It was one of the best Christmas gifts I got. According to the GameStop website, this is a mystery box containing some random characters, but each one has the following:

1 Funko Pop figure

1 PEZ Head

1 Keychain figure


1 set of 2-pack pins

I am not going to cover everything what the mystery box has, but I will tell what I got in my box. If you’re curious on what the box usually contains, check out the details at GameStop. In my box, I got this Majin Buu holding a lollipop figure. I got Perfect Cell PEZ head and a shiny chrome like Perfect Cell keychain. I also got a set of pins containing Perfect Cell and Final Form Frieza. The patch I got says “Frieza Force”.

This is random, but my brother also got me Domez figure from the Batman series; I got Robin. This is the third figure I got from the Domez series. The first two figures I got was a Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse (stepping on soap) and Spider-Carnage.

I have a total of 80 figures. I can’t wait to tell what I got from January 2021!

Marvel movie news: Deadpool 3 will remain rated R! Morbius pushed back for Oct!

Deadpool 3

3 Things I Learned from Deadpool. The Art of Living and Dying | by Glen  Binger | Betterism | Medium

Remember when Disney bought the Marvel characters from Fox? This includes characters from X-Men, Deadpool, Blade and the Fantastic Four. This is both good and shocking news for Marvel fans. It’s good because that means Disney is able to bring more movie projects in the MCU world along with characters such as the Avengers. However it also means that since MCU is owned by Disney, it also means content will be made for an audience recommended for families. Fans worry thinking if characters such as Deadpool joined the MCU, the future movies will be tamed to a PG-13 rating.

However, the president of Marvel Studios made an announcement recently. While talking to news site Collider, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that the upcoming Deadpool 3 film will remain to be rated R and it will fit within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There has been a total of three Deadpool movies in which one and two are rated R and there is a PG-13 version retelling of Deadpool 2 titled Once Upon a Deadpool. Deadpool 3 will be filming in early in 2022.

Matt-in-the-Hat Origin – Why I started this blog

Apple made an ad to highlight the history of MacBooks in anime - The Verge

How I started this blog was not what I expected. I signed up with WordPress for an English college class in the topic of the public and private sphere. In this class, we talked about what was the public sphere and how does people engage public information and what was considered private. In order to understand the public sphere, my professor wanted us to sign and create a blog with WordPress and write a post on anything news related around the world. Once I got done with the class, I was planning to leave and abandon this blog and move on life. However, I remembered a while back my family told me that I was a good writer and I should make use of it. I decided to use this blog again for my own purposes.

At first I was going to use this blog as a diary of my life and vent out any emotions I have been collecting. While brainstorming, I was thinking about using this blog to talk my opinions on certain topics such as anime and video games. Rather than making this a life journal blog, I decided to use this as a place where I can talk about anime. I would use this platform to share news regarding my interests. The name Matt-in-the-Hat would be a reference to Cat-in-the-Hat also a play on words towards me.

As time passed, I used this blog to review nerd content such as anime, video games and movies. I would also try and share any news I have read in regards to Japanese pop culture and media and news in the United States. On Fridays, I dedicate those days on Friday Funnies, posts I share that is filled recap news and memes I collect.

Two Pieces of Advice for new bloggers

Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Zack Fair Explained | Screen Rant

1. Write what interest you

When you start off on your writing adventure, make this about. Talk about who you are and what makes you unique. Write as if you are the audience and how do you want to be heard. When I started off writing here, I wanted to talk about things that would piqued my interests. If there was video game I enjoy hearing or something I played, I want to talk about it. Whether if it gets heard or not, I want to put my heart in this writing without holding back the details.

2. Your blog is yourself

Similar to my first piece of advice, how do you want to be well-known online. Everyone has their own style on how they do their blogs and you can tell even in YouTube, people has different topics in their videos. I talk about anime and video games like any other fan, but I present them in a way I try to present in person. I am very basic and I want to be known as someone who knowledge on these topics, but I want to be able to hold a casual conversations. However you want to organize your site, what kind of person do you want to be recognized?
