I’m not sure how or why my Walgreen’s happens to get the new items so quickly – but I am extrmemly happy! I walked in on the 1st of October and, my whole mantra is “kill them with kindness”, asked one of the clerks putting items out if they happen to get the new Spider-Hulk Pop. This sweet woman said she would go in the back and take a look. When she arrived back in the aisle she was holding… Spider-Ham. I actually got excited though – the Spider-Ham figure is really cool! It will have it’s own post later.
The woman went into the back once again and when she came out she had the Spider-Hulk in hand! I might have gotten very excited – a little too excited perhaps – as I squealed out “It’s an oversized Pop!” See, I was not aware that it was one of the larger Pops so it took me off gaurd. In a really good way, of course!
This is still one of my favorite moments in comics and also one of the best figures to be released in the Spider-Man Classics line I was psyched to see that Funko was making this piece! I know that there are a lot of Hulk Pops being released and this was one of the ones I was nervous would be difficult to find. Thankfully, having a worker willing to go that extra step made my shopping trips successful! My advice: If you have yet to find this in the store, make sure you ask if they are in the back!
