You’ve all seen the GameStop Funko Mystery Box and all of it’s contents online before. It has been pretty hard to find one over here in Belgium, but I’m glad to tell you that I had one shipped out to me. Let’s check it out (again).
The box itself features the classic G.I.Joe art with the original Joes and the MOBAT. The colors are really lively and bright, and very sharp as well. The contents are thrown in quite loosely and therefore rattles a bit when shaken.
The ‘biggest’ piece in the box is this Director Destro Funko Pop figure. Based on the 1997 figure (3.75”), but definitely taken more after the Classified Series Profit Director figure, this one sports the leopard collar and leg pieces, along with a gold suitcase and a stack of burning money. I’ve been collecting some of these Pop figures over the years (not just the G.I. Joe ones, but also some of the other classic toy based ones (Care Bears, My Little Pony, Trolls – I have 2 daughters who like them) and also some Disney ones (Aladdin), Movie/TV ones (Jurassic Park, Knightrider, Star Trek, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters). They have just about every possible franchise covered and they are reasonably priced and they just hook you in I guess. Not everyone is a fan, but I really like them.
The rest of the contents consists of a Snake Eyes keychain (Funko Pop Style) with filmcarrière, a G.I. Joe sticker, an official Membership Card and a G.I. Joe dog tag. Nice to have, but not that must-have things as you’d like from an Exclusive box set. Still, it will all look great in my collection.
That’s it for now. It has been a while since I posted something, I’ve been struggling with some health issues, but I’m working through them and I hope to be back to full health soon. I hope to be posting some new things rather sooner than later. Thanks for sticking around and keeping the views/visits to the site growing every day.
Is there a difference between a robot and an android? I could Google it, but hey, do your own research 😉.
This week I received my Funko Pop! Cobra B.A.T. It’s supposed to be a 2021 Summer Convention Limited Edition Exclusive, but I’ve seen people posting pictures online of finding them in Walmart.
I – again – was able to score him/her/it at Back to the Toys, a webshop and physical store in The Netherlands. They have become my one-stop-shop for Funko Pop!’s recently. If you’re in Europe and looking to get Exclusives, Limited Editions or just regular Pops, take a look at their site. Great service and friendly people. When I get to go to The Netherlands again, I’ll be sure to visit their physical store.
The figure itself is a cool homage to the original 3.75 figure, although it doesn’t come with swappable tools. The color scheme is on point and the big head, which is the Pop!’s trademark feature, doesn’t really stand out that much. It rather fits the figure. It always made for an easy target.
I had the figures pre-ordered way back in January. So it was a nice surprise to come back from a short holiday and see the box in my package locker.
I know some people aren’t fans of the Funko Pop! line, but I really like them. They display nice and aren’t too expensive – most of them. So far, I’ve got quite the collection (see some of the previous posts on them). From these 4, the Storm Shadow digital camo figure has to be my favorite. Withe the Baroness and Snake Eyes a close 2nd. The colors on Scarlett don’t look quite right to me. The tan and green may be more reminiscent of the original Joes, but I like the faded blue/purple better with the tan of her costume.
In the end, I’m very glad to add these 4 figures to my collection.
No, it’s for a Red Ninja. The Special Edition Funko Pop Retro Toys Cobra Red Ninja to be precise. And a little something extra…
Based on the original Storm Shadow outfit, but in red. This figure really looks the part of a mean ninja.
This figure is released as part of the 2nd set of the Funko Pop Retro Toys G.I. Joe figures. On the back of the box is a checklist of the figures. They include Scarlett, The Baroness, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
There is another Snake Eyes figure, a Funko Exclusive, packed with Timber. Naturally, I have that one too.
It has been a while since I added something new to my collection. Today, the mailman arrived with a small package from our friends at Funko.
It’s the Funko.com Exclusive Snake Eyes figure with Timber. The figure is modeled after the 1985 v2 Snake Eyes figure, with the slitted visor and the grey and black. The Timber wolf companion is just too cute.
Let me share some of the other art work on the box. On the side, you get a full frontal view of the 2 figures.
On the back, there is an overview of the other figures that will be released later this summer. Scarlett, The Baroness, another Snake Eyes (the classic look with the goggles and web gear) and Storm Shadow (the 1988 v2 digital camo version!).
That’s it for now.
Happy Collecting and YoJoe!
