Continuing the addiction to Funko POP! figures, switching genres to order a whole raft of bobble heads of the characters from SILICON VALLEY and COMMUNITY, plus a "Sean Connery" James Bond in a POP-ized Aston Martin.

Does Bond's car have an "Eject"?
Growing up in North America, when I first had the toy I was always confused as to why the eject tossed out the driver until I saw the movie at a later age.

Brett Stuart, keep searching. It was the other way around for me. I was on my third Walmart before I found my Robby. Iron Giants were everywhere.

The only Funko POP! figure I have outside of comic book characters is a Vegas Elvis I purchased at Graceland. That Sean Connery Bond has me thinking it might be time to spread my wings a little more. Most of the athlete figures have no appeal to me, but yesterday I saw a Max Scherzer, my current favorite baseball player, with the different-colored eyes. Its now a must-have for me. Ive looked for two of my other favorites, Johnny Bench and Larry Bird, to no avail. There is a Roger Staubach and a local kid currently playing for the Cowboys, so there is some hope for me. Not for my wallet, though.

The toy had no steering wheel?

Very Tempting to get this POP! liking the Connery eyebrows too.

You expect me to talk? No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.

There are POPs of some other Bonds, too (excluding Barry Nelson and the mob from the original movie version of CASINO ROYALE), tho they interest me not at all.

Wow. That would be so obscure, I'd have to get a  "Jimmy" Bond! They would have to have a Peter Lorre Le Chiffre to go with it too.

Not that I recall. It was very small, though.

POP TV figures arrived. Again, mostly without bases. Who thinks that's a good idea with such top-heavy figures?

A custom piece I wanted to share with my fellow forum members. Thoughts?
