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!
With a new Marvel movie come the Pops – and with the Pops come the variants! Thankfully this time around we didn’t have too many to find – it wasn’t another return to Ragnarok – where everyone and their mother had a new Gladiator Hulk! This variant was pretty simple to find, Gamestop had plenty (and still do), but overall I prefer the darker colors on the suit.
I would love to display this merchandise proudly – it’s too bad that the movie really did our Green Goliath an injustice and I’m truly not a fan of the “space suit” that he dons in this movie. Overall though, it is the Hulk and I did get this guy to add to the collection.
Luke Cage and the infamous Night Nurse played by the very sexy Rosario Dawson finally have their day in the sun with their very own 6 inch figures! No lie, I was not going to pick these up but once I saw them in hand I decided to go for it. The likenesses of these two Netflix show characters are pretty uncanny! Impressive!
The paint applications on these figures you’d assume would be pretty standard but I am impressed with the textures on the pants and hair. Within this two pack we get a bevy of interchangeable parts and accessories for… Claire. Pretty much leaving Luke out to dry – but hey, he might be used to that since his series has been the weakest of the bunch. Hate to say it but it’s true.
But Night Nurse comes with medical glove hands as well as claw hands! If that’s not enough they made sure to include her purse as well! Maybe the purse is for Cage? Wow, now I’m not so sure anymore…
Either way this 2-pack is worth getting as I don’t think it will be very popular. Besides, has anyone really been looking for a Night Nurse action figure? Well, now we have one!
