My Hero Academia Funko Pops $10.99/each
The 3rd wave of My Hero pops have landed and some of the most asked for pops are finally available. Namely Kirishima and Tokoyami but you also get some new villains and more class 1-a members to fill your list out. These are a great addition to any fans collection. Not heard of My Hero Academia, here is a quick synopsis.
In a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered Quirk, Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that won’t stop him from enrolling in a prestigious hero academy. Now, Izuku is tangled in another dangerous internship as he struggles to keep pace with his upperclassman—Mirio.
91 Days $22.98
Prohibition—a lawless era where bootleggers prosper and mobsters prowl. In this murky world, blood is shed without regard or regret and for Angelo Lagusa, it’s all he knows. After the Vanetti Mafia murders his family, Angelo is left alone, the burn of revenge just a flickering light until he receives a letter that holds the key to vengeance in the form of a hit list. But there’s a catch—he’ll have to get close to the Vanetti family by befriending the don’s son, Nero. Working side-by-side with the future don, Angelo becomes Avilio Bruno, a loyal hired gun with a talent for pickpocketing and quick planning.
As the days dwindle away, Avilio and Nero grow closer and the kill list gets shorter. But between two families at odds and every target on Nero’s head, the two find themselves in a world of trouble. When it comes down to it, will Avilio—no, Angelo—pull the trigger on a man who considers him family?
After the decimation of the Second Impact, Tokyo-3 endures the onslaught of the deadly Angels. To combat this bizarre enemy, NERV constructs a fleet of towering humanoid machines—the Evas. At the controls of Eva Unit 01, Shinji Ikari struggles to accept responsibility for mankind’s fate. Rei Ayanami, the frail pilot of Eva Unit 00, might be the only person who understands his plight.
