Calling it

I am sure by now you have seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones. ( I meant season 7 episode2) That was it, I am sure Greyworm is going to have something major happen to him this season.  That makes me really happy that I recently snagged a Greyworm pop. -before prices soar, and the pop becomes rare.

hello Greyworm!

Also, I was surprised to see two GOT pops in the 2017SDCC lineup!-It was not announced!!!

It included a black Night King and The Mountain in armor! I already have the regular Night King, so I am not going to get the black version. But the Mountain in armor, I had to track it down. *I honestly never cared for the character and the first Mountain pop they released, but this armored version IMHO is way better than the first. 

My collection needs this!

After a quick phone call to our “favorite” toy shop in Greenhills. We have the armored mountain on preorder. Sure it is a bit more expensive but still, we would love to have that on our collection.

This would be the second exclusive pop in my collection after the nycc2015 Iron Throne.

Now we wait for the toys.

Our pop from away

I am away from my desk today, but I still have a pop for my weekly pop Friday. This time my pop is a gift from my cousin Jacky that traveled all the way from Manhattan, NY USA- to Manila, Philippines!

This is our first international pop! I am thrilled!

We got the San Diego Comic Convention exclusive 2016 – Doctor Strange.

The box made it in perfect condition! I was not expecting this to be here so early. Because usually it takes a month after for local stores to have stock of the last month’s exclusives plus the higher price. My cousin knew that this pop is the only one that caught my fancy. 

I definitely dig the box as well as the art.

I got it Wednesday night right after a long day at work and I felt so happy all my tiredness just faded away replaced with excitement that I have a new toy.

It looks as good as I thought it would. –I have looked it up before on YouTube reviews. It is indeed detailed and also looking real cool with the translucent rune in his hand. There are also texture details in his cape! the leg and the sash detail also adds to the appeal.

I also have to add that our cousin even got one for her own upon seeing the pop. It is that pretty.

there is the rune and the streaks on the hair

Details that was awesome -the details on the rune and the streaks on the hair.

To top that all off its value has risen up to 30usd.

Not bad

Not bad at all. 

To be honest I don’t know Doctor Strange save for the fact that its movie is going to be released soon. But Kei, being the HUGE geek he is…knows and follows the comics and he likes Dr Strange and that was the reason we picked the pop when our cousin asked us what we wanted to get from the SDCC 2016 exclusive.

We count ourselves lucky that we have our pop without having to wait in line to get a pop. -Because this is the usual when they release exclusives in the Philippines. The struggle is real.

What did you get from the 2016 sdcc exclusives?
