Many moons ago I had a 100% complete marvel collection with many 1, 2 and 3 of a kinds, hand painted protos. Also as my board name would suggest I believe I was the first die hard, if not he first one of, Ironman fans. Glow in the dark pieces are some of my favorite and I thought how wonderful would it be to have a glow in the dark Ironman. Not knowing anything about production cost, I emailed Brian and asked him how much it would cost to get a small run of glow in the dark Ironman wobblers made so I could keep one and contest the rest away on the board. A bit of time went by and I thought I wasn't going to hear back from Brian but I finally did. It was a polite reply explaining that because of licensing issues this was something that he probably couldn't do. Fast forward about 2 months or more and I had long stopped thinking about my dream of a GITD Ironman. I was sitting at home and there was a ring at the doorbell and I saw a Fedex truck in the driveway and I thought what the heck? I don't have anything on the way.... he handed me a box and I saw that it was from Funko? I thought what the what... then I opened the box. I near fainted! There was a little note telling me they were a 1/12 production and I later saw that the other 6 went to Gemini to sell. That was one of the first times I experienced how truly above and beyond this wonderful company called Funko (and Brian) truly are.
I know this post is old but is there still anyway to get this Iron Man? I missed out on Gemini and have no connections with Brian.
