Freddy Krueger at a BooksAMillion. I was about to head out and then thought to myself that I should double check behind the first row of Pop!s and there he was. That started a hot streak of four or so chases in the span of a week. Haven’t had much luck since lol

I've only ever found 1 chase in store. It was the Luke on speeder at Toys R Us. The box looked like it was drop kicked and I had no interest in the pop itself.

I did order the common John Wick from Amazon once upon a time, and got the chase. That was nice haha

The first chase in the wild was Rick (Weaponized), I got lucky it was just laying on the shelf at Gamestop. As I was checking out, the employee was telling the employee who was serving me "why you put it on the shelf?". I was just laughing inside.

The very first chase is Flash Chase.

I wanted to ask, are Chase pops valuable now-a-days?

I only have a few and I don't know if I want to keep collecting them. I'd love to hear/see your thoughts about it.
What makes it valuable to you? Is it because of a feature or some sort of effect? :-k :-s

I think the first chase I every purchased was the OG DC set of Batman, Robin, Wonderwoman, and Superman at SDCC 2014. The first I ever found in the wild ( not sure)

I think most people want them just because they are chases, not for any other reason. I once waited in line with a guy who told me he bought a chase he didn't want because his philosophy was 'no chase left behind'. For me, I only buy them for lines I collect or if they have a cool feature like a glow or if they're flocked.

I have all the Stranger Things chases even though the only really great one of those is the season one Eleven, just because ST is my main line I collect. I also waited in line for the Kid Flash chase just because the glow is awesome. On the other hand, I have a few preordered Pops now where I really hope Amazon sends me the chase because they are awesome and I want to collect those sets - Joker 1989, Fight Club, and Starlight from The Boys.

In the end, my advice is to collect what you like and if a line you like has a chase, go for it.
Pops I want Funko to make:

Letterkenny, Billie Eilish, Impractical Jokers, Ali G

Very awesome advice! I honestly think chases are just commons to me. If I like a feature or the pop designs, sure why not, I'll buy it. Totally not against them though. If people only collects chase, then I support them.

I think, for myself, I'd rather buy pops I enjoy and love. I'm also not a seller, so totally not interested in buying them for that reason. ;)

ya it has been hard to find just random chases. Most chases I get nowadays are from online orders. Now you are competing with store employees, resellers, and other collectors. I think in the last year I probably found 1.
