Remember that Funko POP Vinyls Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan box back that leaked out a few weeks ago? Well, there’s good news and bad news about that. The good news is–Kamala Khan has arrived earlier than expected! The bad news is–she’s a Walgreens Exclusive (AAAUUUGGHHHH!!)! And oh yeah, she’s also brought a certain clone buddy, but you better work fast to find them–the Funko Ms. Marvel and Scarlet Spider POP Vinyls are already all over the aftermarket!
But what we didn’t know at the time was just how soon we’d be seeing Kamala make her grand entrance in stores with her first figure ever–out of nowhere, the Ms. Marvel Funko POP Vinyls figure has arrived in some Walgreens stores this weekend!
Considering that Kamala Ms. Marvel is such an integral and beloved character in the modern Marvel comics and this is her first figure released ever, I am totally shocked to see she’s being limited to Walgreens exclusive status.
I guess if Venom and Green Goblin can be Walgreens-only, so can Ms Marvel, but it’s still a little frustrating and disappointing for Kamala’s inaugural figure to be a limited exclusive. I also think that it’s a mite bizarre that this figure is physically showing up in Walgreens retail stores already when Funko has yet to officially announce the existence of this figure at all!
The existence of this POP! leaked out earlier this month, I just discussed the figure at length this week, and Funko only officially announced him a couple days ago, so I’m positively ecstatic to add my favorite Spider-Man–Ben Reilly–to my collection! (Could we get a Sensational Spider-Man as well some day…? I can dream!)
The Funko POP Kamala Khan and Scarlet Spider vinyls are already all over eBay, and are quickly being devoured from retail stores. If you want to get these exclusive figures early and without paying aftermarket prices, I highly advise haunting your local Walgreens stores all week long until they get their shipments–these are gonna be a real pain to get.
How do you feel about the first-ever Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel figure being consigned to be a Walgreens exclusive, Marvel collectors? Was Kamala a good chance for a limited release, and will you be hunting for her and Scarlet Spider’s POP Vinyls figures?
