Dan do you mean wind jackets or jawbones? did i miss crystal pop jawbones? - LEX7

Lex, I was referring to the Jawbones:

Since I get a feeling an all clear pair may never emerge these aren't a bad consolation prize. LOL

What do you think Lex?
Today 6:41 PM
and im still desperate for a clear jawbone........ - LEX7

You and me both - right now I do have my eye on the Crystal Pop Crystal Clear Fire Iridium pair. Would love a completely clear frame version though.

I love the clear/clear SR Wind Jackets I have. Not very practical though. Especially since I paid retail for them and I'm not going to wear them as safety glasses - which like Oak mentioned probably was his inspiration for them. Not a bad idea to use them as safety glasses if, again, I didn't pay retail for them. They look really cool though. So I'm glad have do have them.

I thought the Matte Trans Blue was supposed to having blue shields. On they look dark gray/black. If so that's a little disappointing. I also thought the Matte Black Prizm Sapphire pair was supposed to have blue shields as well.

True, Funko does have all of the cool licenses and seem to be getting more and more and more.

Yep, there literally is something for everyone and yes all it could take is just one! Ha!

Well, I'm trying to focus on one or two characters if any moving forward. I like a lot of things and life would be simpler, definitely easier, less expensive and at times more stress free if I could concentrate on one or two collections.

Funko, for me, has a way of sucking me back in though!

Sometimes I wonder if these will go the way of the Beanie Baby. People buying a ton of them then almost overnight the floor fell out underneath them. Or am I wrong? Ha. I thought they were hugely popular and then suddenly they weren't. People spent a lot of money buying/collecting them in the hopes that they'd be worth something someday.

Back in the day I almost did the same thing with Spawm figures. They weren't horribly priced. I didn't have 130 of them but I bought more than I should've. Especially since looking back on the fact that I displayed them for only for a few years - they've been packed away for what seems like decades now.

I may pull a few of the Spawn figures out of storage since the Funkos have reignited my "figure" collecting. Just wondering when or if my brain will say "STOP THE MADNESS" like it kinda did with Spawn.

Oakley and Nike have been my only constants and I have a lot more O than swoosh.

Just kinda going with it I guess for now. If I enjoy it "most" of the time then why not? Although like with O, the exclusives and limited editions can give me gray hair. The amount of Funko variants, as Dann touched on above, can be outright maddening/insane though!

I think that's what most collectors have a problem with: They're inexpensive, so it's easy to build up a large collection of them. I probably have a couple, so I'm not a collector of them. Still, there are some cool ones out there.
- Oak

Being inexpensive at least for me is definitely a reason for sure. Lots of cool ones out there. Something for everybody.

I own 4, so I’m definitely not a collector either. I like them though. I have 2 of John Wick and 2 Star Wars. - rich5150

John Wick is a great choice. I have a few Star Wars. How can I not when it was part of my childhood. Another way they suck you in - reliving your childhood through $9 toys!

I'm like most, buy one here or there. Batman related on most.
Still like to look at them and hope to find a "chase" one in the wild one day.
- Batman1939

Well they just released - up for preorder - a 19" Batman Funko Pop! at $79-$99. Chases are cool. I like them better than having 45,000 variants being released.

My daughter has a decent collection, mostly Avengers characters. But my favorite is the Blue Sour Patch Kid. So tempted to take a bite of him. - eddyc

I'm an Iron Man collector and some other Avengers as well. It does look good enough to eat! HA!

I held out forever, since I thought they were a dumb idea. I think it mainly changed when they started getting creative with different IP that was wildly outside the humanoid basic design, but they still tried to make the POP aesthetic work. I just wasn't interested in the million Game of Throne characters, but stuff like Portal and Minecraft looks good.

My first was the Five Nights at Freddy's POPs since my daughter collected all of the plush and figures and whatever, so we have that complete collection. I started to get some of the Borderlands, but gave up when Claptrap had about 10 variants. I have two from Tron, but I've since given up. I'll get the minis thought by buying the cases vs $8 a piece for an unknown chance. - Dann

Yeah, I wasn't sucked right in at first either. Wasn't sure what to make of them until they started releasing things I was into. I do tend to like the ones that are characters that wear stuff, helmets or armor and aren't just a big square face/head. Ones like Claptrap, robots and other non-humans are usually really cool.

Just curious how many people on the OR collect Funko products? I know a few folks do or have at least bought some.

I find it a challenge to resist them at times since the price-points, for Pops! at least, are reasonable. Just $9 here or $10 there and before you know it you have 130 of them. Most of which, in my case, are still packed away unfortunately.

I'd definitely be in for a pair of Camo EJ Redux!!!

With that collection is a couple vests (thanks to Yelkao for the links):

Outdoor Vest

Body Bag Vest Bag

A long ways from cool vests like the Vega, Grid Iron and AP Vests. Looks like some of the fake stuff we saw back in the day. - Oak

The Outdoor Vest link doesn't work anymore already - seems kinda weird - it was up for maybe a day. I like the vests because, well I like vests, but I agree they're not in the same league as the previous vests that Oak mentioned. Out of these two new vests I like the Body Bag vest a little more since it's does have that modular aesthetic and it's not your typical vest. Not sure if I'd buy either one yet though.
Aug 30, 2019 3:49 PM
Yeah, I'm so out of the loop on the Terminator movies. I'm not sure what's going on anymore.

The Unicron crowd-funding thing was due this Saturday, but it’s been extended by another 5 weeks:

It would have have failed if it ended on Saturday as planned, but the 5 extra weeks may pretty well guarantee it’ll be funded.

Well, I’ll be looking forward to the campaign’s success and getting my about a year and a half after paying for it. - Oak

Yeah, just saw that. Hopefully it will happen now for those who are supporting it. Well, at least you will have something to look forward to even if it is 18 months down the line. I expect lots of photos Oak!
Aug 21, 2019 2:31 PM
Agreed on the price - love the box. Do the gloves come with it? Ha.
Aug 21, 2019 2:27 PM
The Matrix trilogy - well former trilogy - is one of my favorite, not sure what to think about a fourth film.

I still can't believe they let Sony have this much control over Spidey in the first place.
Aug 21, 2019 2:20 PM
Yeah, that's awesome. The estimate does seem low especially since it mentions that it cost around $250,000 to make back in the day.
Aug 21, 2019 2:15 PM
I really do like these and there are some cool color-ways. Definitely on the list to get. Still wish the ear stems were straight though. HA!
Aug 20, 2019 3:24 PM
Cool Aaron.

Love them! Tough choice, not sure which one I would get.
Aug 15, 2019 5:55 PM
Yeah, the tags were really cool!

- Lance Zhou

Very cool! Congrats! When were these released initially? Looks like something that was released around when the SILK shoe was available. 2005 maybe?

I don't know if they'll do a two disc set, but they'll certainly do a trilogy set after the third movie comes out in Phase 4/5. Then they'll do a collector's set, a sooper dooper collector's set, a 8k set, etc.

Speaking of infinite dipping in these various BRD, BestBuy just released a box set of the Avengers movies in Steelbook and 4k. I would've jump on it had I not already had all the movies with Steelbook already:
- Oak

Oops, I forgot about Spidey 3. Yep they'll do a trilogy set. Can't wait for the ENTIRE MCU box set when every phase is complete and they release one ginormous boxset with EVERY movie in it.
