Jeremiah 30:17 (CEB)

I will restore your health,
    and I will heal your wounds,
        declares the Lord,
    because you were labeled an outcast,
        “Zion, the lost cause.”

Ecclesiates 9:11 (CEB)

I also observed under the sun that the race doesn’t always go to the swift, nor the battle to the mighty, nor food to the wise, nor wealth to the intelligent, nor favor to the knowledgeable, because accidents can happen to anyone.

Isaiah 61:1 (NKJV)

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;”

March 2022 Funko Pop Haul *Happy 8 Years of blogging!*

Howdy everyone! You know what this means when you see Funko. It’s time for another Funko Haul post. Without a doubt, this one of the biggest haul of the year so far. I bought myself some pops and some were given to me as birthday gifts. Lets go over my updated figures.

137-140. 

  •  The Drowned (Batman Hot Topic exclusive)
  • Vegeta with apron (Dragon Ball Super HT exclusive)
  • Carnage (Marvel HT)
  • Evil Inuyasha (HT)

I got these four figures from Hot Topic online. These four are exclusives and once I saw them return to the site, I had to get them. The Drowned figure was the cheapest of the bunch. The Drowned is a dark alternate version of Batman from Earth -11. With the money and technology along with taking the throne of Aquawoman, Bryce Wayne becomes The Drowned. Now she and along with Dark Knights are ready to conquer the universe. Nothing really special with this one, but I bought this version of Carnage. I believe this figure is based on the moment where he escapes from jail. The Vegeta figure with the apron is based on the moment where he tried to cook eggs during Dragon Ball. Last but not least, I also got Evil Inuyasha. Sometimes called Demon Inuyasha, this Inuyasha, when under pressure, becomes a violent vicious demon. He becomes so dangerous he doesn’t need his blade and he is willing to attack his friends.

141+142.

  • Pigeotto
  • Michelangelo

For my birthday, my girlfriend got me some pop figures. I got Pigeotto from the Pokemon series and this Michelangelo is from the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. If you are a classic fan of Pokemon, you would know that Pigeotto was one of Ash’s first Pokemon when he started his journey. I haven’t seen this movie, but I would have assume there is a reason why Mikey is holding a box of donuts instead of pizza. Maybe I should watch it on my free time.

143+144. 

  • Philharmagic Mickey Mouse
  • Demongo

 

Got these guys again from Hot Topic, but with Hot Cash. I got this shiny and sparkly Mickey Mouse figure in his good suit with sorcerer’s hat and the malevolent Demongo. It is Disney World’s 50th anniversary and Disney is going all out on the celebration. Mickey is ready to party and fill the world with magic. From the animated series Samurai Jack, we have this deadly ally of Aku, Demongo. What makes him dangerous is the fact he can summon spirits and make them fight as long as he still standing. However, knowing Jack, he was able to find a weakness and inflict damage to this intimating dark magic user.

145. Mai Valentine from Yu-Gi-Oh!

As a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary Funko released more Yu-Gi-Oh! Pops. I got Mai when I went to GameStop and I also bought Persona 5 Royal and Catherine for the Switch. She’s not an exclusive, but it’s cool to snag a character from a popular anime series. Mai is one tough duelist with her Harpie Ladies and her Amazonian women.

146+147

  • Boruto
  • Raphael

I got these two from going shopping at Barnes and Noble with my girlfriend. I got Boruto from the Boruto series and Raphael from the same movie with the one I got with Michelangelo. This Boruto looks different and if you remembered correctly, this Boruto appeared in the first few pages of the Boruto manga and the beginning of the anime. It’s unknown what happened, but Boruto is wearing the scratched headband from Sasuke, wielding a sword, has a scar on his eye and he is able to unleash his karma powers. This Raphael doesn’t have his sais but he is ready to kick butt. I also bought myself a VizBig Inuyasha manga book.

148. Majin Buu with Ice-Cream (GameStop exclusive)

Last but not least, I got this t-shirt/figure combo set from my friend Ezra for my birthday. This is Majin Buu from the anime Dragon Ball Z. This pink blob monster is scary when angered, but if you give him ice-cream, he’ll be happy. Gotta love this pink character in which I think of him as Patrick Star.

That is all the figures I got from March. It was a big haul. I have a total of 148 figures. I hope you enjoyed seeing my collection. Cheers to 8 years of blogging!

February 2022 Funko Pop Haul

I took a break from buying Pop figures on January in case you were wondering why January felt different. As we enter 2022, I started to buy Pops again in February. I bought some really cool looking figures in February despite dealing with warm and cold weather. February was a short, but busy month.

133+134. Batman Battle-Damaged (The Batman Hot Topic exclusive) and Hades (Hercules Hot Topic exclusive)

I bought these two from Hot Topic. Around this time, I had to do errands in which I had to get my oil change on my car and get an eyes checked. While waiting, I did some shopping to pass the time. I went to Hot Topic and I came back spending my money on some cool stuff. I bought some T-shirts and Pop figures.

This Batman figure is based on the recent 2022 Matt Reeves movie The Batman which is played by Robert Pattinson. Batman has to solve crimes and get into messy fights when dealing with thugs and the serial killer Riddler. Not DC, but I bought this Disney villain Hades. Hades is one of my favorite Disney villains.

135-136. Boba Fett and Fennec Shand from The Book of Boba Fett

Better late than never. I bought these two Star Wars characters in my late Valentines Date. My girlfriend and I went to Downtown Disney and shopped around the stores and venders. The first place we did shopping was at a Star Wars store at the place. Taking place within the Star Wars story, The Book of Boba Fett tells the story about Boba Fett and how he survived from the movie The Return of the Jedi and what happened to him after the events of The Mandalorian season 2. Boba along with Fennec are trying to do have order in Mos Eisley in the planet Tatooine. I didn’t hesitate to get these two characters.

I have a total of 136 figures.

2 Timothy 4:3-5 (NIV)

3. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

4. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

5. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
