This is my first sign pop and Im so much in love with this beauty. He came in mint condition thanks to @funkopop.updates for his help on this bad boy always moving closer and closer to this collection being 100% finished.
Cereal, signed pop, and posters, oh my! Massive (Godzilla sized) shout out to @funkoholics_anonymous for scoring some awesome swag at D-Con for the hubby and I. He also scored us a signature on our Thank You Freddy from the legendary @funmakermike , the founder of Funko!
This is the only signed piece of Stan Lee merch I own. I was looking to get into collecting Pops and thought collecting Unmasked ones would be a good collection. I didn’t know this one was out there and they were sold out before I could grab one. My wife saw me mention that in a Facebook comment and surprised me with one she bought off eBay. It is by far my favorite pop because it symbolizes so much. When they announced at NYCC in 2016 that it would be Stan’s last year I knew I had to meet him and this was exactly what I needed him to sign. I always get to the con early and got there at around 6am. Stan’s signing was at 12. I waited on line just to wait on another line and when it was time for my turn to get an autograph it was almost 2pm. I handed the guy my ticket and the next guy my pop. Stan was obviously already tired as his schedule was brutal for a man any age. He would sign the items and pass them along, not even raising his head up to look at anyone. When he signed this pop I very loudly said “Thank you, sir!” And he lifted his head up to say “alright.” That was my very privileged time I got to meet Stan Lee.
Last weekend I went to a cast reunion for the movie The Sandlot. 10 cast members were there. It's one of my favorite movies of all time, and it was great meeting them all.
I was able to get Marley Shelton aka Wendy Peffercorn and Chauncey Leopardi aka Squints sign their Funko Pop figures. All ready had Patrick Renna and Tom Guirey sign their POPs over the summer. Have the Beast and Benny for the complete set.
Lots more Sandlot pics to come from this great signing....
