If you know me you know Back to the Future is one of my favorite franchises. So much so, an actual DeLorean is in my future. So I was pretty excited when Funko released a new Marty McFly Exclusive POP! at this weekend’s Fan Expo Canada. The new POP! is Marty sporting his Buddy Holly guitar from his performance at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance.
