Funko POP Disney’s Screen Slaver – A very computer relevant Disney villain dirt cheap!

Today I saw on my Report Round Up a crazy deal on a thought-provoking character from Disney’s The Incredibles 2 movie. The movie itself did quite a bit of mild virtue signaling, and an extremely well job at jabbing at some modern day social behaviors that I’ve caught myself on a couple of times (When did they change math?).

Outside of some unspectacular trope-ish super hero introductions, the initial enemy, ScreenSlaver, seemed a little generic with the ability to control people through hypnosis via screens, but as Elastigirl was zeroing in on the villain’s transmission, the villain’s monologue really struck a cord with me. It certainly got me thinking about society as a whole and how many are unconsciously manipulated through the addiction of instant access to images everywhere as made apparent when the masses finally realized that their surfing behavior was being profited on. Seriously, how else would Google have made its billions? Did everyone really think AdSense advertising was really random?

Sorry, digression… back to the figure…

I won’t ruin it here if you haven’t seen it already, but I will certainly give it a thumbs up to take the movie in at least once, and a thumbs up to buying the Funko POP Screen Slaver figure as its now on sale for less than $4 shipped on Amazon! This is ridiculously good.

Post Halloween All too expected sale – Nightmare Before Christmas POP Figures

Category : Deals of the Day

As most would guess, the days after Halloween are riddled with sales on everything costumes, candy, and themed figures. One brand in particular that strangely never fizzled in the many years since its release is Nightmare Before Christmas. In all honesty, I never got it. The stop motion animation was a little off for me even in that time… I was more of a Ray Harryhausen fan myself, but hey, to each their own… and in this case, there’s an overwhelming majority in favor of Tim Burton’s feature. In that spirit, Amazon’s offering a special deal on the troublesome child trio that are so iconic to the image of the brand.

For under $20, get your hands on the Funko version of Lock, Shock, and Barrel! Unlike other Funko that i’m rather critical about (don’t get me started on the generic features of Soccer Stars line), these 3 turned out to look rather slick. Its a ‘Deal of the Day’ collection, so its not going to last passed this day. Happy hunting, all!

Under-priced Funko POPs! Fortnite

Category : Deals of the Day

With the ravenous popularity of Funko’s POP Figure line, figure valuation for the collection will have a decent demand for the time being. Of course once people realize these figures aren’t in any way a decent representation of the licenses and personalities they love, the value will drop like a rock. Let’s face it: each Pop is essentially a figure of the same generic dude (lets call him Freddy) cosplaying as every character ever. They essentially scream to desperately be accepted as mainstay figures of any brand using the most basic, flat styles of designer vinyl collectibles. I mean, seriously, real fans of any major license would look to find something that truly defines the images that lay locked in their memory. POP’s are far from that. They are in my mind what I once called a ‘Quick Collectible’ akin to ‘Fast Fashion’ Cheaply made, generic in detail, quickly produced, and made in such a variety as to get something new daily.

Aside from my own sour taste of these figures, they’re still the most accessible, mobile, and affordable collectibles for a great deal of licenses because frankly speaking, most licenses aren’t worthy of figures. That being said, the purchase in rock bottom Funkos is still good for the time being from an investment point of view.

Here are some recent winners you might consider:

Fortnite is one of the hyper phenomon games that captured a generation. I consider generational because gamers my age don’t have the slightest urge to play, and we’re the seasoned veterans. When a license captures a generation, collectibles will undoubtedly become long tail opportunities. Fortnite may be one of the only licenses for specific age groups as its one of the only brands that has taken hold of major channels of exposure and promotion, namely the PC gaming and YouTube.

Nov. 5 2019 – Cult Movie Classic – Office Space

Ready to dress up your work office with some 3D flare? Looking to show your entrepreneurial spirit to all the Bobs? Post Bevis and Butthead / pre-King of the Hill, Mike Judge produced a thought provoking comedy that helped shape a generation’s thought of what success looks like in an era where professional duty clashed with duty to oneself.

Check out these Funko POP’s from the 90’s movie classic Office Space! For less than $4 shipped, you can have your very own flair laden maiden, Joanna, or the iconic Red Swingline endorsing Milton.

The Milton figure I feel has really good legs to grow in value as the special price on Bill Lumbergh has already passed and prices have gotten back to its MSRP.  Milton also had some additional features made by the director, so he’s got fairly more cultural recognition as a ‘staple’ character even though Joanna was played by the incredible beautiful and breakout star of the entire cast, Jennifer Aniston.

Grab them while you can, and maybe in the next wave they can include a Micheal Bolton and bat wielding Samir.
