One of the thing that killed me was all the variants that the Thor Ragnarok Gladiator Hulk had – especially when we’re talking the Funko Pops! Now, Endgame hasn’t been too bad – but there is a Hot Topic Hulk that I haven’t gotten yet. I was happy to receive this one though – and the story is pretty funny.
I told my wife I’d like this specific Pop for my birthday. I sent her a photo and everything. She went to a Gamestop near us and the gentleman there told her that no one in the area has that specific figure. While the dude wasn’t lying to her he also wasn’t telling her the whole truth.
I went to my local Gamestop and talked to the guy behind the counter. He told me that he was getting 3 in the next shipment – the guy didn’t even have to look very long! I asked him if he could look up other stores inventory which he said yes – and that he could tell me who should be receiving these Pops in the next few days. So, you see what I mean…
True to the dude’s word the guy ended up calling me a day later telling me it was in and then my wife went and grabbed it for me for my birthday. It was both not a surprise and still a very nice surprise!
