Once a month...that's pretty amazing that you were able to see them that often.

Awesome congrats! I haven't experienced that feeling yet....opening a box and them *wham* there's the Chase!


Yeah its kinda like winning a contest lol. I just never expect it when i order one of something, terrible luck, and most people order multiples to try for them.


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.


I dont usually have trouble with shipping, i have only ever gotten one trashed box but it was packed pretty nice so not sure how it ended up so mangled. I will send you some good chase juju lol!

The first chase pop that I ever found, while our pop hunting was .... Star-Lord (Vol. 2) (Masked) Chase. I'm still not very lucky when it comes to chase hunting so I usually preorder sets that have them in it.

Sadly, I've been doing the same thing. I think the last one I did that with was the Speed Racer one/set. That Chase was too cool to rely on luck lol

My first chase was Gru. I was in Mexico wondering a mall and saw him on the window display. I bought him, because he was the first Chase, I have ever seen.

My first was Smaug from the Hobbit. They were $20 on Amazon and I bought one. Still one of my favorite Pops. First one I ever found "in the wild" was a Chase Gremlin at FYE.

Whoa, really? HT? I would have thought all of the Chases that they get are handed out to those who wait in lines prior to HT opening.
That's awesome that you've had luck there!

My first chase was a Buffy The Vampire Slayer Spike. I didn't know what a chase was at the time and I wasn't sure why he was more expensive when I bought him on eBay, but I needed to add him to my collection.

Once I was more educated, my first actual chase I found in the wild was a Heffalump chase at Barnes & Noble. I bought it for my friend that needed it :)

My first chase I seen in the wild was a chase big bang wacky wobbler... I left it though because I wasn't sure what a chase was and didn't collect the line. I think the first one I picked up was Gremlin.

The first chase(s) I got were Ren and Stimpy. The first chases I found in the wild were the 8-bit Demogorgon and Dart - I found both at Target the same day. Haven't found any in the wild since.
