You’ll Float Too, Georgie

Georgie:  It’s my chase!

Pennywise:  EEX-ACTLY! Go on, kiddo… Take me! [Georgie stares, unsure about reaching into the vault for his canceled chase Pennywise].  Aww… you want me, don’t you, Georgie? Of course you do… and there’s, reaction figures, plushies, and all sorts of canceled Pops! down here… and sepia chases too!  All colors.”

Georgie:  Do they float? [reaches for his chase]

Pennywise:  [face begins changing from a smile to a frown] Ohh yes… we float Georgie… we float… and when you’re down here, with me… YOU’LL FLOAT TOO! [Chase Pennywise grabs Georgie’s arm and pulls him toward the vault]

———– END SCENE ————-

It was confirmed earlier today that the new Chase Pennywise Pop! from the popular movie remake of Stephen King’s ‘IT’, are being canceled due to licensing issues.  Although at first it seemed unlikely a widely produced (1/6) chase variant would have a large swing in value, current E-Bay sitings of the chase figure have already seen a dramatic uptick in pricing.

Keep in mind, speculation often time causes an artificial incline in value, and like many other Pops! that have been canceled, retired or vaulted before, Chase Pennywise is likely to settle back down with a bit of time and patience.  However, if you want one for retail, it’s likely a good idea to find one before the current stock disappears from shelves.

    Will we see any adjustment reflected in PPG’s appraisal? Or are you guys gonna wait a little while to see where it goes?

    I wanted one SO bad for my dad. He got me into the horror genre as a kid and I got him hooked on collecting the IT PoPs when I told him they were coming out 🙁

        thats terrible customer service. i feel ya pain
        I know for a fact that a local store near me actually WONT put ANY chases out. they keep and sell to who they want…
        I have bought @ 60 pops in 4 months and only got to pick one Chase out of 3.
        Has never asked me again.
        I’d say he keeps the rest for himself at the cost of all his customers buying normal stock

    dont understand what the licensing issue could be, all it is is a repaint of the non-chase pennywise. If it was a licensing issue you would think they would pull the regular one as well

      Seriously how can they do that.
      Outright Stupid.
      As if the item didn’t get checked before mass production that it meets it’s licensing terms……

      Just more Fake marketing. called Streisand effect

      I’m curious how that works myself? You would think the design would be the issue not the color scheme. lol

    Mine came in the mail today! Wow!? After years of collecting this is the only Chase I have ever bought and we grabbed the last one Gemini Collectibles had in stock after looking around and finding most vendors Sold Out or asking more than I was willing to pay 3 days ago. When I noticed a vast difference in prices online tonight I knew something had to have happened. Good Luck & Happy Hunting!!

    I have given up with these things, at first i enjoyed the hunt and getting my hands on my “grails”, but as the popularity grew so did the flippers, and also the employees at the shops who stock and sell them started to keep them behind the counter, the fun went out of collecting these things, and ive noticed that even the flippers dont seem to be making as much out of these as they were a year ago, is it happening already? Is the bottom falling out of the funko collectibles.

      No, the bottom is from falling out. Funko is doing better than ever.
