Even though Sword Art Online: Alicization is over, there is still more Sword Art Online for the fans. Announced before, there is plans of another Sword Art Online movie titled Sword Art Online the Movie – Progressive – Aria of a Starless Night. The movie will be based on the light novel Sword Art Online Progressive which is written by the same creator Reki Kawahara and the plot of Progressive is a retelling of the story of Aincrad where Kirito, Asuna and many others was trapped for two years. The movie will be released in theaters in Autumn 2021. Revealed in this new trailer, an original anime character will be joining the movie named Mito who will be voiced by Inori Minase (same voice actress who voiced Rem from Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World -). I will try to keep you guys updated on the movie news, but know that it’s going to be on the fall this year and let’s hope there won’t be any delays from Covid-19.

February 2021 Funko Pop Haul *Happy Birthday Special*

Hello Funko lovers, I am back again for another haul post. As a collector of vinyl Pop figures, I am a lover of these small bobble head like figurines. Today is my birthday and I am going to share with my updated collection from my purchases from February. According to my last update, I have 84 figures and I been collecting figures from February and March. However, I am only going to be talking about February.

85+86. Owlman and The Penguin Snowman (both Hot Topic Exclusives)

I got these two from online from using my Hot Cash at Hot Topic. Obviously I wanted to get this holiday version of Penguin because not only he was an exclusive, but we are already passed the holidays and I wanted to snag him before he sells out. The Christmas season usually stocks up these special comic book figures for Marvel and DC characters. It’s funny how they made a villain like the Penguin a snowman; he looks like a serious and dangerous frosty the snowman. Also in the DC Superhero section, I bought Owlman. Hot Topic listed this figure really cheap and every time I visit Hot Topic online, it is there for $7. I assume this figure is not really popular. I don’t know much about this character, but I do hear he’s an evil counterpart of Batman and he is from a different universe along with other evil characters in their Justice League.

87. Sorcerer Mickey 10″ (Walmart Exclusive)

As a way to celebrate the 80th anniversary to the musical movie Fantasia, Funko released Disney figures from the movie. Exclusively from Walmart, I went and spent about $30 on this big figure of Mickey Mouse. I love Mickey Mouse to death and seeing this figure online made me want to claim this Disney treasure. Just like my Mandolarion figure from November, this is another huge figure.

88. Sorcerer Mickey Art Series No. 15
89. The Joker (Imperial)
90. Batman (Imperial)

As you can tell, I like to shop at Hot Topic. I made some more purchases. They may not be Hot Topic exclusives, but I knew I had to get them before they disappear. I got a different version of the Sorcerer Mickey figure, but this figure is unlike the any other Mickey figure I have. Even though it’s still the same sorcerer, Mickey here is splattered in green, blue and purple paint. I don’t know much about the paint series, but it looks cool. On the back of the box, there is another but it’s purple as the base color with star lights. I was surprised to see DC do these types of figures of Batman and Joker. Based on the Imperial army, DC and Funko created these DC characters. We have Batman don some samurai armor and we have Joker looking like a general. It’s cool, but I don’t know for sure if there is many more our there since the box doesn’t tell. As far as I know there is a Harley and Robin figure out there.

91. Ratchet and Clank (GameStop Exclusive)

Taking a break from Hot Topic, I took my business to GameStop. During one of my dates, me and my girlfriend went to GameStop at an outside mall. I saw Ratchet and Clank on the Pop Funko shelves and I had to get them. As a gamer myself, I love the Ratchet and Clank series. It’s cool to see some Playstation figures as Pops. I saw they also had the brothers from God of War, Brok and Sindri, but my instincts told me to get the Lombax and his robot companion.

That’s the end of the February haul and I will be back for the March post. I have 91 figures!

Marvel’s Avengers

Black Panther coming to Marvel's Avengers game in War for Wakanda expansion  - CNET

I hope you’re still playing Avengers because Square Enix has some upcoming content for you. Revealed this weekend, Black Panther is the next DLC hero to join this video game. As expected, get ready for a new story campaign, enemies and characters. Based on the trailer, Steve Blum (voiced Wolverine in past Marvel games and shows) will be voicing Klaw and Christopher Judge (well-known for voicing Kratos in God of War 2018) will voice Black Panther.

Square Enix also revealed a roadmap of content coming to Avengers in 2021. These include DLC characters like Hawkeye and Black Panther, new modes and upcoming online features. Unfortunately for PS4/5 fans, Spider-Man will be joining before Black Panther arrives in the game. The team is currently working on him, but don’t expect him coming this summer 2021.
