July 2022 Funko Pop Haul

Hey everyone! As you all know, this is another Funko haul post. It’s nothing too grand, but as always, I have to keep you guys updated on my collection.

149: Pharaoh Atem from Yu-Gi-Oh!

I got this figure from BoxLunch in one of my dates. This figure is big and it has the character Pharaoh Atem/Yami Yugi on the throne from the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. In case you don’t know who this is, in Yu-Gi-Oh!, the young Yugi Muto solved the Millennium Puzzle and awakened the soul of the Pharaoh. The unnamed Pharaoh took refuge in Yugi’s heart and together, they fought against ancient evil who wants bring destruction to the world. As the series came to the climax of the story, the Pharaoh’s name was revealed as Atem and he ruled ancient Egypt centuries ago.

Thank you Kazuki Takahashi for giving us Yu-Gi-Oh!

I also bought this manga anthology from Barnes and Noble. Akira Toriyama’s Manga Theater is a collection of short stories he wrote besides Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump.
