Who likes good news? Everyone? Well, good news, everyone! A brand new episode is upon you and we’re talking about all of the things! New Oreo flavors! Funko Pop figures! The sports! And our favorite sequels! It’s action packed! You may own an entire seat, but you’ll only need the edge of it!
As discussed in Ep. 18 “Freddy or Jason”, I’m a huge fan of “The Golden Girls”. I used to watch it with my grandma and even have the collector’s set DVDs. I still love it and think the humor holds up pretty well.
So it was of no surprise that when Funko announced a series of POP Vinyl figures based on the show, I was all over it.
I pre-ordered these beauties immediately and even kept a space clear in my apartment for their impending arrival. They’re amazing.
A little bit after that announcement, there came another one containing the news of a special New York Comic Con exclusive of our beloved ladies done in the fashion of ReAction figures.
Supposedly, this pack became the hot toy of Comic Con and none of the people I knew who were attending were able to grab it for me. This has now gone on to be an eBay nightmare with some closing in on $200. I love the Golden Girls and would love to have figures in the same scale as the Super7 Masters of the Universe, but c’mon now. That shit is banana town.
So yeah, this is what I was getting so upset about. I have no idea why all these people decided to jump on the Golden Girl bandwagon that I’ve been driving for decades. Hey, fugazi fans: stop ruining shit for the rest of us!
At least this sweet t-shirt was waiting in my mailbox when I got home:
Based on the wonderfulness that is this clip, obvi:
Just had to get this all out. Thanks for listening.
Well, I’ve waited long enough! Finally all those life-changing purchases showed up in my mailbox. Let’s peruse:
Take a guess at who will have the driest pits in Florida for the next few months!
Funkos kill me because it’s hard not to go nuts and buy everything, but I’m pretty good about just keeping it to the characters I’m really into. This was a must have for my collection.
M.A.S.K. – The Complete Series
This is something I’ve been meaning to buy for a while as I was never into this show as a kid, but got interested in because of Twitter and a possible crossover movie with GI Joe. I would bet that you hear a lot more about M.A.S.K. and I very soon.
As mentioned in Episode 2, I wasn’t the biggest TMNT fan, but I was definitely a fan and this collection comes in this sweet Turtle Van case that will look great displayed on my…I dunno…some piece of furniture once I figure out a spot for it. Will be fun to get back into this and listen to the velvety voice of Uncle Phil as Shredder talking about dining on turtle soup.
So this was my Amazon Prime Day haul. Hopefully, your’s was as bountiful.
