That’s an awesome chase man and especially for your first. Definitely one of my favorite chases of all time love the look of the pop itself and the glow adds a lot to it.

Or when you find one at a store 'hidden' (in another area of the store, nowhere near the rest of the Pops)...it makes me feel like someone 'hid' it for themselves until later....No...It's mine now! \:D/


Oh yeah! I've had that happen before! Its strange where they hide them sometimes lol


It is! and the way that they're sometimes covered up, behind something. I've had a friend tell me that they saw a Black Panther Chase at a Party City, in a random gift bag, behind stacks of plastic cups...like whoever did that, just buy it!...why go through all that trouble (just to potentially have someone else find it).


Exactly, right?! Maybe they are just trying to see of someone would be able to find it? Like a little game or something haha. I had a friend find one in a trash can in Target once lol

Holy crap 9 in a week! That is amazing!


I was hunting in the wild every single day, 3 times a day minimum. It was fun, but I started getting antsy until I got the first one, after that they just kept coming.

That is amazing. I might have to do this one time

Just be aggressive about it at least for a week, follow your local shops on social media.. like hot topic, comic shops (that dont charge crazy prices) or etc.
Go to Gamestop, target, Hot topic, every day and you will get one eventually.

Me too! I miss that feeling...tbh I wouldn't even care the condition of the box and/or line it's from. I strive for that feeling again...I miss it :(


Right?! It was such a rush to walk into GS or Hot Topic or any retailer and see that Chase sticker in the shelf or behind others!

Last random chase I found was in It's Sugar on a busy Saturday evening about a month ago.

My first chase was the Metallic Green Goblin that was a Walgreens exclusive. I searched for weeks for this pop and could not find it. A friend of mine found it and surprised me with it on my birthday. :mickey2: :spiderman:

I ordered a Zero with Bone from Box Lunch and got super lucky and recieved the chase. It's extra sweet when you get one as a surprise in the mail.

Whenever I need to order something, I generally always order 2 (when I can). Not necessarily in hopes of getting a Chase, but because I still don't have 100% trust in how any retailer ships; it's so inconsistent. Sometimes they are in a sorter and bubble wrap in a box and sometimes they are JUST n a shipping BAG. smh
...doing this...I still have not gotten a 'surprise' Chase.

My first chase in the wild was Green Lantern from Fry's Electronics. I still remember when Pops weren't that popular yet and I was hunting them at Best Buy, Target. One day the guy at Best Buy told me to try Hot Topic. I used to find a lot of chases at Hot Topic...

I've been collecting for 5 years and the first time I found a chase was last year in Barnes and Noble. It was Tokyo from the Netflix show Casa de Papel aka Money Heist. I don't collect it, but I got it for my best friend. She is obsessed with the show.
