As expected, get ready for a new story campaign, enemies and characters.

Looks like we are about to get more superheroes in the MCU. It has been reported that the superhero team Big Hero 6 will be joining the MCU world. However, unlike Disney’s 2014 version of Big Hero 6, the characters from the animated movie will not be reprising in live action. Rather, the plans for the MCU version of the superhero team will be based on Marvel’s 1998 comic series Big Hero 6. Just because Marvel will adding the team in the MCU world, don’t expect to see the animated characters such as Hiro and Baymax, but instead look forward to the classic and original versions of the characters. This is not the first time Marvel decided to make a movie focusing on an obscured team of heroes. In 2014, Marvel Studios gave us Guardians of the Galaxy movie and it became a hit.

January 2021 Funko Pop Haul (+ December 2020)

Hey everyone this is Matthew from Matt-in-the-Hat and I am back once again to share with you another post showcasing my Funko Pop figure collection. There is no doubt that I am huge Funko Pop collector. With January already over, I am here to tell you what new figures I collected in the first month of 2021. Sit back and relax and let me tell you the history on how and where did I get these well-known artifacts.

December 2020

81. Hercule from Dragon Ball Super

This is embarrassing and I am not talking about this joke character from Dragon Ball Super. It turns out by the time I took this picture of this figure, I got him in New Years Eve. This was supposed to be in my December 2020 post, but I guess I overlooked my pictures. I got this figure as a Christmas gift from my friend and fellow brother in Christ, Ezra. He knows I love Pops and he knows my favorite anime is Dragon Ball. This character I have is named Hercule and he is a joke character. He is just a human who acts like the strongest warrior in the universe despite actually being the weakest hero. On TV, his name is Mr. Satan and he is a rich celebrity warrior who convinced the world that he has defeated the powerful enemies like Cell and Majin Buu. However, he is just a ricj guy who is friends with Goku and his friends and takes the spotlight for the media. He is also the father of Videl who is married to Gohan, he is the son of Goku.

January 2021

82+83. Lea from Kingdom Hearts III and Wonder Woman in Golden Armor from WW84 (Walmart exclusive)

I got these figures while shopping around Walmart. I was buying a Casper cartoon collection DVD and I needed help getting free shipping. The first thing I picked was Lea from Kingdom Hearts III. After regaining his memories, Lea returns back to life after dying as Axel in Kingdom Hearts II. He came back in Dream Drop Distance and he later learned to wield a keyblade in which he would train with Kairi and prepare for the final battle with Xehanort in KH3. Unlike the figure I got from January 2020, this Lea figure doesn’t have his keyblade. In case you didn’t know, the voice who does Lea/Axel is Quinton Flynn who is well-known for voicing Reno in Final Fantasy VII titles (except for Remake), Raiden from Metal Gear series, Henry in No More Heroes 1 and 2 and even Sheldon from My Life As a Teenage Robot.

As someone who likes exclusive figures, I decided to get Wonder Woman. Based on the movie that came out on Christmas of 2020, WW84 or also called Wonder Woman 1984 is the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman movie with Gal Gadot returning as Wonder Woman and saving the world during the 80s. Based on this figure, Wonder Woman dons a shiny golden armor which allows her to fight incredibly strong enemies and this armor was worn by another previous, powerful Amazonian warrior. This Walmart exclusive is pretty cool and I am surprised it was pretty cheap.

84. Venomized Groot from Marvel’s Venom series (Glow in the Dark Hot Topic Exlcusive) + T-shirt bundle

I seen this Funko Pop bundle many times whenever I window shop at the Hot Topic site. After giving into my temptations, I decide order this Pop bundle. This bundle or combo pack comes with a box resembling a comic book set, but inside it has the Pop figure of Groot and a t-shirt. The shirt has Groot possessed by the alien symbiote and saying “We Are Venom” instead of saying “I am Groot”. The shirt also resembles the front page of a comic book. The figure itself is pretty cool. I didn’t really much on the glow in the dark features, but I like how menacing Groot looks. Instead of a friendly look tree, he looks like a vicious man-eating plant. The shirt felt nice and it made me feel like a cool nerd.

I have a total of 84 figures. Which ones did you like the most?
