While examining the box of my new WWE exclusive figure John Cena POP figure, I noticed something. There was a WWE Superstar listed, that was not announced as part of the series 2 wave. Even more exciting...it was a Diva! Want to see some pics? Look below.
Today I am going to be taking a look at a cool exclusive. It’s John Cena with Green Hat and Wristbands. This one is a WWE Exclusive. I got mine when I went to a RAW show. As you may already know, the John Cena figure was originally released with Blue accents. But let’s have a look at the exclusive, shall we?
This year during San Diego Comic Con I had the opportunity to attend Funko’s annual party, Fundays. It’s a celebration that the cool people of Funko put together for industry and fans.
I invited Phil from the Facebook group Poppin Off About Funko and HollywoodGoneGeek.com to sit in with me and recap the Fundays event. We’ll talk about all the exciting games and giveaways that took place as well as some of the exclusives that were found there including the magical Mystery Box. Have a look below:
Are you familiar with LootCrate? You subscribe to this service and once a month you receive a box of geek related goodies. The box is filled with random figures, stickers, comics, T-shirts, all sorts of cool collectibles. Not bad for $13.37 (plus shipping).
You don’t always know what you will be getting.Think of it as a huge blind box. That is the case, usually. It was known that this month there would be a Lootcrate exclusive POP! vinyl figure but, you weren’t suppose to know what it was until it arrived.
Well, the exclusive figure was leaked on Instagram and what an awesome exclusive it is. Fair warning, I have a picture of the exclusive figure below. So SPOILER ALERT!

Hello Heroes! Time for more pictures from San Diego Comic Con! On the Saturday of the show I only had a little bit of time to cosplay as I had a signing at the Full Moon Entertainment booth and other activities going on. But I wanted to wear my Black Canary costume. It was the first time I would be wearing it at SDCC. I was able to do a little running around in it and even took part of the DC Comics Cosplayer Photoshoot. Want to see the pix? They are posted below
When I was at San Diego Comic Con I chatted with my good friends at Crave Online and William Bibbiani about the The Dos and Don’ts of meeting a cosplayers at conventions. I have been cosplaying since 2010 and every year I go to loads of conventions in the US. So what are some of my thoughts on how people should approach cosplayers at cons? Hmm, you’ll have to watch the video:
Hello Heroes, Funko has announced a second series of WWE POP! vinyl figures. In series one wrestling superstars like Sheamus, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, Stone Cold and The Rock were represented. So, who is going to be in series two? I’ll give you a hint... It’s packed with legends. Want to see the pictures? Have a look below!
While I was signing at the Full Moon Horror booth at San Diego Comic Con my old friend Kassem G stopped by for a quick interview. You all know that Kassem is a funny lad and he always makes me laugh. So, he popped by the Full Moon booth to chat with me about everything that is going on. There is even a sweaty kiss involved. Have a look at the video below:
At San Diego Comic Con I debuted a new costume that I cosplayed in; Captain Marvel! I’m a big fan of the Carol Danvers character, first as Ms. Marvel and now as Captain Marvel. While Ms. Marvel has been one of the characters people have requested that I cosplay as the most, I thought I would represent her as Captain Marvel.
Funny story, I picked up this completed costume less than 24 before I left for SDCC. Talk about cutting it close, LOL. Luckily for me it all worked out and I was able to wear the costume as planned on the Friday of the show.

Well, after battling the Funko booth and a couple others at Comic Con. I had a lot of these gems in hand. Here are my favorites after seeing these exclusives in person.
Wampa-Luke 2-Pack from Star Wars
This set is amazing! The super-sized Wampa with his cut off arm by Luke’s lightsaber is great! Luke had some new detail as well with some battle scar blood. This is a must have for any Star Wars fan! Funko used the force with this and did a really cool job of bringing the Hoth scene to the vinyl-toy world.
Huckleberry Hound from Hanna Barbera
Funko first revealed this exclusive with the original release artwork. As it turned out the Comic Con exclusive was the dark blue variant. The Hound is a limited edition of only 480 pieces. So if you have one of these in your collection, it's a totally good thing. I was really excited to pick up this Hanna-Barbera Pup! There were also 6 colored variants at Funko’s FunDays that were a limited edition of only 24 each (those were not for sale, the FunDays variants are priceless).
Toy Tokyo Gold Batmobile
Okay, so technically my next pick was not revealed by Funko, the Gold Batmobile was a Toy Tokyo exclusive. It's a limited edition of only 300 pieces. The Gold Batmobile comes with a red Batman Hero Pop. These were very limited at Comic Con as they sold out within the first 45 minutes each day. Batman looks really pimped-out in his gold ride! This was the ultimate score for me, as I’m a huge Batman fan!
Toy Tokyo Antique Skeletor Hikari
Yes, another Toy Tokyo Exclusive made my favorite list! What can I say, Toy Tokyo also revealed some really amazing pieces. This Hikari figure has an incredible silver/black/gold paint job. These Hikari figures are handmade and crafted by a wonderful company called MindStyle. This figure measures about 6 inches tall and this particular piece is a limited edition of only 300 pieces.
Beat Up Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad
I’m a fan of the award winning show Breaking Bad. I thought this beat-up Jesse was a great variant. I actually like this Comic Con exclusive better than the original release of Jesse. Damn, Tuco really did a job on this guy! This figure is an limited-edition of 2500 pieces.
Fugitive White Lantern Batman
Ok, so this next favorite was not even at SDCC, but I’m going to throw him in there for a couple of reasons. 1, he’s VERY cool and 2, he was a part of a SDCC Fugitive Exclusive 7-pack that I got right after Comic Con. This White Lantern Batman was the Mystery figure in the 7-pack! Hopefully we see a glow-in -the -dark version next.
Pop! Asia Hopping Ghost Series
These were at the MindStyle booth at SDCC. These creepy Gold exclusives are too cool! There are 4 figures in the set… Prime Minister, The Sheriff, Little Prince & The Judge. Funko & MidStyle teamed up on this project as well. All I can say is… the paint application on these vinyls are wonderful! Flawless! I’m happy to add these guys to my collection.
Sten Lee SDCC Version
I have never been a fan of the Stan Lee Pop! figures until I saw this one. Finally, a SDCC version of Stan the man! This Stan Exclusive was at the Crazy Cat Collectibles booth for $25. I couldn't pass him up!
I hope you guys got to score some SDCC Funko Exclusives of your own.
Until next year guys….

Cosplayers. That’s the first thing that I think of when it comes to San Diego Comic Con! As someone who has been cosplaying at SDCC since 2010, I always look forward to seeing all the cool costumes and getting pictures with the people wearing them.
I was wearing the new version of my Lady Titan costume, and was able to get pics with people dressed as iconic characters like Thor, Doctor Strange, Maleficent, Hulk Hogan, Red Sonja and so many more. Want to see the of the pictures? They are posted below!
If you are a Funko vinyl figure collector, you know that they go all out for San Diego Comic Con. This year they had over 80 exclusives available to those that were able to stop by their booth. The shelves were consistently being emptied by fans of the popular vinyl collectibles. You all know that I collect the POP! vinyl figures and now that I am home, I wanted to share which ones are my favs. So here are my Top 5 2014 Funko POP! San Diego Comic Con exclusives.
I am back from San Diego Comic Con! What an exciting trip it was. Parties, panels and all sorts of madness. But it was loads of fun and I got to meet so many of you. Before I start in with my recaps, I want to give some shout-outs to the amazing people that made sure my SDCC 2014 rocked.
Wow, today is the birthday of the gorgeous actress and icon, Lynda Carter. I just wanted to give a quick shout out to her and wish her a ...WONDERful Birthday! She has been an inspiration to me, watching her when I was little, running around in a superhero costume as Wonder Woman and here we are, years later as I am about to head over to San Diego Comic Con, I’m the one wearing a superhero costume.
With so much going on at San Diego Comic Con it’s hard to keep track of all the exciting goings on, but one booth you need to head straight for is the Starz/Anchor Bay booth!
