Funko recently released Pops from the Loki series. They released President Loki, Classic Loki, Kid Loki, and Alligator Loki, but where was Boastful Loki? He had such a great look and he would have made a great looking Pop. I was a little disappointed when his Pop wasn’t among the other Lokis and I wasn’t the only fan to feel that way. Now, we will receive a Boastful Loki Pop. Although, CNBC’s Sarah Whitten tweeted that the Pop will be a Convention exclusive. How hard will it be to purchase Boastful Loki? Over the weekend, Comic Book Movie interviewed DeObia Oparei on the news.
Artwork of the character wasn't made available to Funko from Marvel until the fifth episode of #Loki aired.

During the interview, DeObia Oparei shared is reaction:
It feels great…even though I was late to the party! [Laughs] It does feel really good. I felt like it was glaringly weird that I wasn’t part of that and I’m really grateful that the fans jumped on it and said, ‘Hey, we don’t like this!’ It’s a positive thing and feels fantastic. Those figures are gems. Firstly, it’s great to have an emoji and it’s great to have a Funko figure. It’s amazing.
How he felt about being left out:
I bring all that and [Laughs] you try and keep me out? That’s what’s so great about the times we’re in now. People don’t let anything slip and they pick up on stuff, especially if you’ve made an impact which is what I love as an actor. Back in the day, that wouldn’t have happened.
People get right in there: ‘We want Boastful Loki! Where is this figure?’ Also, the MCU fans…phew, they’re hardcore!
Sarah Whitten’s tweet shared that the artwork for Boastful Loki wasn’t available until the fifth episode, but I’m not buying it. Also, based on the Boastful Loki gif she attached to the tweet, I believe Whitten’s not buying it either. Oparei does an amazing eyeroll.
