After quite a few weeks I'm finally able to whip out another Funko Top Ten Tuesday! Nothing was changing much on the top 10 list so it seemed quite pointless. This week there's some random POPs that have hopped up the list.
Pop Price Guide Top 10
As you can see above one of my all time favorite pieces has finally made it back on the list ... OPIE WINSTON! To be honest I think the entire Sons of Anarchy series should be in the top 10. Unreal show and unreal vinyl figures. Another one which happened to be one of my first Funko purchases ever sitting now at a $43 value is Ghost Face Killer! Instant classic in my book. Now ... on to the Stashpedia Edition.
Couple updates for this list as well as we see Opie is also back within the stashpedia top ranks & now we also see the Avengers Thor in the top ranks sitting at a $45 dollar value. This week I should finally have some fresh pops incoming that will hopefully make it right into this list. What's your favorite Funko item in this weeks top 10 collection? Let me know on IG @TazAlGhul or right here in the comments.

LA Rams iPad Pro Sketch
In light of the Rams big day and heading to the Super Bowl I had to fire up the iPad and create my first LA rams sketch with a little extra painted zest.
Since I’ve had the IPad Pro for about a week now I can already say that this is the most unreal thing I have ever purchased. A must have for any designer out there. The pressure sensitivity is amazing. There are many other non-Apple pencils/stylus products but DON’T do it! The way the Apple Pencil works is incredible ... Literally as if you are using a real pencil with so many live brush options that it’s a no brained. Worth every penny. To see more of these daily sketches be sure to follow @tazalghul on instagram!
Daily Sketch #2 (iPad Pro)
Well if you didn’t see the commitment post today for 2019 - I”ve committed to make a sketch a week so I can 1. Nail this iPad Pro game down and 2. Bring better art pieces to the community. It’s been a while since the TazAlGhu; shop has gotten some new pieces so in 2019 I’m dedicated to bring the head. The first item that will be out will be the Dead Man Logan Tees - not yet live but here’s a sneak peak of the artwork ...
Be surre to swoop the Old Man Logan tees before they sell out ... Just in-case you missed the last TazAlghul drop that’s also right below ... don’t worry apparently everyone else missed it too because we only sold 12 ... My Bad ... kind of tucked it away in the web abysss but whatevs ... sorry bout it ... Cheers to Dead Man Logan!
TazAlGhul's Jam of the Day 1/17/19
Scotch Wiskey - Gone Bloom
Tis been a reallllll long time since the jam of the day has been alive but it's finally back! Today's jam is a real smooooth one by Scotch Whiskey ... Good for any time of day. JAM ON.
Day 1 With the iPad Pro
Well ... started off the year missing the first Top Ten Tuesday so I figured I had to fire it up on Wednesday ... Which has been the theme lately. Luckily since it's been a while there's actually been quite a few changes / moves within the top 10! Mostly within Pop Price Guide and less within stashpedia. Over the break I had 2 POP! pickups that I am pretty pumped on.
Over the Christmas break I made the journey out to Utah - Cedar City to be exact and there's about three spots to go in the entire area for POP's. Literally just 1 Wal-Mart (which had about 5 Funko items total) Walgreens which only had wrestling pieces and GameStop. I'm always pumped to hit this GameStop because there's always POP's on the shelf that have probably sat there for years ... including convention exclusives. (last time I was there I was able to swoop the Man-Bat a year after its release. This Time I was able to come up on the Jim Lee Batman on the Gargoyle Deluxe B&W Funko which came with a T-Shirt as well. Last one left and it was a Medium so you'll for sure see that Tee up in the shop here shortly. I left Utah stoked and came back to another superb piece which you can see above. The Gold Chrome Target exclusive. This is one item I was on the hunt for, for a while, and was finally able to come up on it. Unfortunately this Poshmark seller sent it in a nice manila envelop which caused a wee bit of damage but nothing a little box replacement can't fix. Sadly you these two don't make the top 10 list but there most def in my top 10 favs.
So finally ... lets get to the Top 10 this week!
So the usual top 3 are sitting at the top - Winter Soldier, Jax Teller and the legendary Stan Lee. A shocker this week was the bump of the Iron Patriot sitting at $55. One of my favs has finally made it back into the top as well sitting at the #6 spot worth $50.
For stashpedia the main difference is the appearance of the Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy! Opie, Jesse Pinkman and Mike have made it to the top! Sadly Opie fell out of the Pop Price Guide top 10 but I'm sure he'll make a comeback one day soon!
What's your favorite in the TazAlGhul collection? Let us know in the comments and show your top 10!
Dead Man Logan #2 Review
After Dead Man Logan #1's amazing review it made for a tough act to follow. After a long wait for #2 of 12 to arrive I was pumped to finally be able to crack open the continuation of the Logan / Mysterio story. With a huge cliff hanger ending in #1 where the time machine was rebuilt by Forge and he just ever so casually strolled on into the machine and ended up in the legendary Wastelands, Logan's Home. The lead off of #2 was for sure not a let down with it immediately opening to Spider-Man being chased down by a mob of Hydra Agents ... or shall I say Neo-Hydra. Ew. I thought this was a pretty damn good opening since immediately you're wondering how the hell spider-man is now tossed up in all this. Makes sense with the history with Mysterio but there haven't been any spider-man sightings in Old Man Logan since the early issues. They for sure leave you wondering what the hell is going on because after you flip the page it's spider-man getting lit up to a for sure death ... but then only to find out it was just Mysterio showing off his digs. Great to see him in action since this was what started the end of Wolverine in the beginning of Old Man Logan. This had me pumped for what else was to come in issue #2 ... but was it just a great start that lead to a let down? ...
Let's hope Netflix doesn't crush the Punisher like they did to basically every other Marvel show in the lineup.
Just Look At It!!!
Never Gets Old.
Iron Venom Time Lapse
Stephen Ward at it again with his magic - this time it's a superb combination of Iron Man & Venom. If you haven't subscribed to him already I would most def do so. Enjoy
