Welcome to the latest edition of BC Toy Spotting! We are in and out of stores pretty much every day, and we figure (ha!) why not show all of our fellow collectors what we are coming across on pegs and shelves. As collectors, we know that staying on top of what is in stores can be almost a full time job, so we are here to help you with your toy hunts and outings. This week we found new Captain Marvel dolls and Hot Wheels, new Funko (of course), WWE figures, Venom jack-in-thebox, and more! Let’s take a look.
On the Funko kick this week, two Jim Lee special edition Pops can be found at Gamestop, with the Joker Hush Pop and shirt combo and his Aquaman Pop showing up. nacho Libre, La Casa de Papel, and El Chavo are all available now, and How to Train Your Dragon 3 Pops were found at Gamestop and Hot Topic. IT Mystery Minis are also popping up. Finally, more Fortnite as Vynl two pack made their appearance.
Targets are getting their new Jurassic World Legacy Collection T-rex, which is a repaint, and the Hollywood Rides Ghostbusters Ecto-1 car.
Also at Target this week we found the whole wave of new WWE Top Picks Elite figures featuring Braun Stroman, Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, and Roman Reigns, along with new battle packs of Jason Jordan and Kurt Angle and the B-Team. Transformers BotBots are appearing more frequently, and we tracked down the new Target exclusive Thermal Vision Fugative Predator from NECA (look for a review of that this week).
Exclusives popping up in stores including a Jim Lee DST Batman Gallery statue at Gamestop and a Venom Jack-in-the-Box at Hot Tpoic showed up in stores this week.
And finally, Captain Marvel toys and such have started to invade stores. Two different Hasbro dolls, one with electronics and one that comes with Goose are available, and Hot Wheels character cars are flying off the pegs. Seriously, get ready for lots more Captain Marvel in the coming weeks in these columns.
