August 2021 Funko Pop Haul

Hello everyone and welcome for another Funko Pop Haul post. We made it to September and you have no idea how much I got from August’s purchase. With Summer ending pretty soon, you got to take advantage of the summer sales. Brace yourself because I got a lot this month.

115-6. Magneto (Walmart Exclusive) + MIckey Mouse with Popsicle (Hot Topic Exclusive)

I got two exclusives today and they are Disney and Marvel. Technically speaking, they are all Disney since Disney was able to purchase Fox in a inquisition and that means Disney owns a portion of 20th Century Fox and that also means Disney has the rights to X-Men. I was surprised that it took us this long for Funko to release some X-Men figures. Despite the movies being popular, there’s not much from figures based on the movies. This Magneto is a younger version from the modern trilogy (First Class, Days of Future Past, etc.). Magneto is a force to be reckoned with in the X-Men world with his magnetic powers. He believes the mutants shall reign over the normal humans. As a Mickey Mouse fanatic, I had to get this Mickey Mouse figure. This is a figure of Mickey holding a posicle. I am not sure if it’s a reference to a cartoon short or Disneyland or even a National Popsicle Day event, but this looks cute. If Mickey gave you a popsicle, would you accept it?

117-8. Kirito and Asuna from Sword Art Online

I don;t usually pre-order Pops, but this is where I felt I needed to get these figures. Unlike the previous I have, these are up to date.  These two have Kirito and Asuna in different poses and Kirito is wielding one sword instead of his iconic dual blades. I also pre-ordered Leafa, but according to Hot Topic, she is getting delayed until October. Did you know Kirito was my first figure I have bought and having him kick started my hobby of collecting Pops. I would later get Asuna from Allison and at that time, we were friends.

119-21. Sonic the Hedgehog (GameStop Exclusive) + Venom and Carnage 

I ordered these three figures online from GameStop. This Sonic figure is based on the classic game Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Genesis. The box comes with a hard protective case with sonic capturing the pose like the game. It also has the cover behind him. The box display is a taller than an average figure, but it is also more slim. As a sucker for Venom, I went ahead and bought these two figures. Based on the movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage, this is the first time we got Pop versions of this Sony antihero. As of now, these are the characters that is being sold. There is a jumbo version of Carnage exclusively sold at Walmart, but good luck and trying to snag one. In this movie, we have Venom being the protagonist in this Marvel movie and this is the first time we will ever see Carnage be in a live-action movie.

122-3. Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Advanced Tech Suit and Programmable Matter Suit exclusive) + Artist Deadpool (GameStop exclusive)

These are the last one for August. While doing errands with my mom, I went ahead and went shopping at GameStop so I can use my last of my giftcard. I had a $40 giftcard when I bought that PS5 bundle. GameStop was having a buy 3 for $30 deal, I got these three Marvel figures; two of which is Miles Morales and Deadpool. Based on the popular Marvel Spider-Man: Miles Morales, I got two versions of Miles. According to the Wiki, the advanced tech suit resembles the MCU’s version of Peter’s Iron Spider suit and the Anti-Ock Suit whilst retaining the iconic black and red colors; it is also a free suit if players updated the game. The Programmable Suit is unlocked when the player completes the hideout missions. With the suit equipped, Miles can perform new finishers which will allow his suit to unleash four extra robotic legs. This figure is also an exclusive which allows it to glow in the dark. Last but not least, I have this Deadpool figure. Just like the others, this is a Deadpool figure that is part of the 30th Anniversary. As you can tell, Deadpool likes to chill and visualize and express his passion.

I have a total of 123 figures! Notice the numbers 123. 1-2-3?
