After two long years...

Postby MyLittleFunkos » Mon Jun 29, 2015 10:04 pm

A little package I received in the mail today...
[albumfull]26715[/albumfull]

Hmm...What is this thing inside?
[albumfull]26716[/albumfull]

Oh, just a Freddy Stark...
[albumfull]26717[/albumfull]


But wait!...is it really? YES, it's number 39 of 39 Iron Man Wobbler production pieces - Red Freddy Stark chase!!!
[albumfull]26718[/albumfull]


So, I've been stuck on being one Iron Man Wobbler short of having every Iron Man Wobbler production piece. Actually, it was a Freddy Stark Wobbler, but I consider that an Iron Man piece :D Anywho, after bugging/contacting Ray (RDK) for the last 6+ months, he was nice enough to break up his set just to help me complete my set. Honestly, words cannot explain how touched I was by his gesture. I had admired his complete Freddy Stark chase set for a long time. Never in a million years did I think he would done that. Yes, it's just a toy, but the amazingly kind gesture of someone I've never met and the meaning behind my collection makes this an amazing day for me.

5-6+ years ago an original Iron Man wobbler was my first Funko piece and two years ago I made the decision to try and complete the set. Countless messages to sellers asking for chase pieces and numerous PM's to plenty of Funatics (SORRY!) and now it's finally done.

I told myself I'd only go for the production pieces but numerous protos later, I'm after the protos to go with the production pieces (oh, how addicting you are, Funko).

Sorry for the long message. I'm just that excited!

Oh, and here is the whole gang together. Actually, I have two on a different shelf, but you get the idea...
