There were two of these Thor and Hulk two packs made. I have them both.

Image
There was one Punisher made. I have it.

Image
there was one Thing made. I have it.

Image
Some protos including two Thors.

Image
some protos including Huckleberry Hound and Captain America.

Wolverine proto only two made. I have one. The piece was never produced.

all these pieces with the exception of the Wolverine were acquired from Todd. I was able to purchase these rare sets plus all his protos. Thanks to Todd and Price and thanks to everyone else who has helped me in my Nodnik quest.


Would you ever consider selling one of the Thor & Hulk Nodnik 2 packs? I'm a huge Hulk fan and I can't seem to find this 2 pack on Ebay or on the boards. Any help would be appreciated.

If I still had them I would. I am sorry but I had surgery and other medical issues and ended up selling most of my collection.


I understand. Medical Bills come first and toys come second of course. If you ever come across another 2 pack for sale please let me know. Thank you for the reply.

I wonder if this is a play on the Yiddish word “nudnick” which means someone who is anyone or pestering . :-k

Yo this is very cool. I dig seeing the evolution of funko’s lines from the wobblers to these to pops to rock candy and more. It’s interesting to see how they try to get creative with collectibles, and also to see how savvy they can be with licensing

I know that there have been a lot of different lines over the years and people get annoyed that some don't stick around for long, but I kind of love the variety and the finiteness of some sets...so if you wanted everything from a line...you can do that. With enough money of course.
