Today, I wandered into Barnes & Noble in an attempt to procrastinate from real life. After perusing my usual aisles (aka manga and Young Adult books), I happen to wander into the toy section where I immediately came across a Rose Tico Funko Pop. Insert my immediate excitement, especially after I just read Buzzfeed’s feature on her this morning. Although I didn’t impulsively buy her at that very moment, I am here to share my rising happiness that she exists. An Asian woman who has a lead role in a Star Wars movie? It almost feels like a personal achievement.
Preview night has become one of my favorite nights at San Diego Comic-Con. It is the only night I can tolerate the Exhibit Hall, which becomes way too crowded once the con kicks off on Thursday. I didn’t go shopping this year (I had to be very disciplined). Check out photos of all the cool things I didn’t buy though!
