Nice find! I’ve seen a few in my area, but they aren’t priced right unfortunately.

I like seeing these wobblers, I like them, and the retros more than pops now lol
I just can’t find them locally and don’t want to go to eBay and pay the prices. We had one store that had some and I passed I should of bought them :bounce:

I got this at the Thrift Store today for $2.99 and I'm really happy about it!

What year is it from? There's no date on the box and my parents wanted to know.


It's cool to have some funko history!



That is a really sweet find!!! Congrats!
