I finally found her!
#263 Monica Geller Funko Pop Friends (wave 1)
I just got her last week! And I’m so happy that my first Funko Pop is no less than my dear Monica.
As Friends wave 1 Funko Pop are all “vaulted” pops, they are kinda difficult to find as stores don’t carry them anymore. Your only option would be resellers – and I don’t know where to find them. But a friend of a friend who helped me pre-order the entire set of wave 2 is a Funko Pop collector and he found me this.
Actually someone beat him to it. He messaged me the price and that the box is a little creased. After thinking (for about 30 seconds), I finally(!) said yes. Who wouldn’t? It’s Monica! I’ve always wanted a Monica Funko Pop! But when he messaged the seller, he was told that somebody have already reserved it.
I eventually found a wave 1 Ross Geller Funko Pop online and ordered it right away. Not that I dislike Ross (coz disliking any one of them is horrendous!), it’s just that I would have liked to get a Monica first before getting her older brother Ross.
Sold Out because of me! (Yeah baby!) I’m excited for Ross to be with her little sister!
Then the Funko Pop guy messaged me saying that we eventually got Monica Geller. Apparently (most likely?), the one who reserved it bailed. So yeah baby, Monica’s mine!
I am just so happy getting her. Isn’t she the cutest?
Although I have to say her three (yes! 3!) wave 2 pops are way cuter and way more Monica-ish – because she is rarely in her chef uniform. Not as much as Chandler is in a sweater vest or Phoebe has her guitar or Ross is with Marcel or Joey with the duck or Rachel serving coffee in Central Perk. But who cares? Chef Geller rocks!
Oh! Oh! I wish they do Moondance Diner Monica too in the future. After they do Fat Monica, of course. And Catwoman Monica. And seducing-Chandler-with-carrots-a-knife-and-a-box-of-mac-and-cheese-80s-Monica.
