FUNKO POP SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING!!!!
TONY STARK/Carter Mann!!!!
Hello all and welcome to a NEW Daily Blog series from me… TFG1Mike! The idea here is for me to write something, anything, once a day for 365 days. From January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2024. Day 20 well I haven’t kept up at all so far this year with the writing. I think because of being so burnt out at the end of last year is why I’m slacking this year! So in my 20th entry for 2024 I’ll be talking about a Funko pop that I bought years ago, and now have it again. When I bought it years ago, it was a gift for a friend. Now though I have it for myself all these years later. Carter Mann former radio DJ always liked RDJ and Tony Stark. So much so that he kinda looks like him. AND he had his own Iron Man suit!! Which you can see here:
Back in 2017 when I started collecting Funko pops, I was listening to The Carter Mann Program on 107.7 The Eagle in Louisville, KY! Carter loved Tony Stark/Iron Man. So when Funko released the Tony Stark with Helmet from the Spider-Man: Homecoming line… I had to get it for him. This was a 2017 SDCC Exclusive, and at the time the one I grabbed Carter was the 2017 Summer Convention Exclusive version. At the time I had just started collecting Funko Pops, and I didn’t have a NEED to have this Tony Stark, and my thought was that it was a gift for a friend who loved the character. That’s not to say that I don’t love Tony Stank, but my ultimate goal has always been to get the characters I love in Funko pop form.
Years later I came across someone on Instagram who had the SDCC sticker version, and I had to have him. Because Robert Downey Jr is awesome and so is Tony Stark! As well as Carter Mann! The point of this post was to remember the past, and live in the moment of getting this pop for myself.
Join me tomorrow January 21, 2024 as I’ll be writing about something!
