Very cool. As for me, I'm actually trying to score the 2014 Comic Con Exclusives for the Walter White and Jesse Pinkman Funko Pop figures. But the price is over inflated at the moment on eBay. So I am biding my time, waiting for Sellers to get desperate and drop the prices.

Those Funko things are cute, but I don't know if I'd buy any of them.

I saw... one toy I saw that I thought was cool was this Mario figure, it looks like it walked right out of the game, but I can't get it because I'll keep expecting it to start running around and jumping on things.  It's just shockingly accurate (I will say, Mario would go well with the clockwork crate... which I just remembered is called "The Moment.")

I wish I had some display space... I have a KA2 Hit Girl still in plastic that I think would be paired with a cool Batman, maybe one from the games, but I have no idea where to look.  I need sites to look through!

I really didn't have much interest in any of the Funko toys before getting inside Comic Con. But as soon as I did, I heard that they were THE Exclusives to get and I spent the majority of the day hitting as many of the small Toy Vendors and hearing the same damn thing over and over "Sorry, we just sold out". Sigh. So, with the amount of time I invested in that day doing that little quest.....I owe it to myself to get those two exclusives.....but at a decent price.

I remember hearing that there was a big thing about the exclusives getting bought out way too quickly-- mostly to people who were intent on reselling them.  They need to do something about that.

Well, the small vendors sold out. The main Exhibitor Funko had/has reserves for each day and I saw they had about 30 or so left on the back shelf. But the line was about 40 deep and you NEEDED a ticket to get in line. There was a mob of people trying to get a ticket. I was f*cked regardless. I knew that each person in line would get 1 of each. Do the math with what was left on the shelf and how many people were already in line, it was a no-win situation. That's when I did another lap trying to find some of the vendors I hadn't gotten too with the hopes one of them had a couple stashed away from view.
