Stranger Things: Hopper with some beer  
During the past few days I have talked so much about Chief Hopper with alumfelga, that a new picture needed to be done! So here is Hopper with beer, also inspired by this post on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BudRRyUnxxq/
My beer cases actually are bottle openers at the bottom!

What are you doing, sheriff? You'll break the bottles! I'm sure someone can help you with carrying them.

He might have a dad belly, but there's still power in his figure.

Since I got the figure before watching, I thoroughly examined it and noticed the belly there, and then noticed it again when watching, and smiled both times ;)

I guess with all the beer we know where the belly is coming from!

Here is the original introduction post, I also love the creases of the shirt at the backside, they look very real.

McFarlane have come a long way since I bought their stiff Mulder & Scully that have not many joints for moving. The Stranger Things figures look really great. I only buy stuff that looks great.

The only regret I have, originally they had head without the hat, but now it is glued permanently. Here is the original picture. It would be better for indoor scenes if he could take the hat off: https://i2.wp.com/exclucollective.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/chiefhopper.jpg?ssl=1

Oh yes, he is actually a very good cop with good instincts when necessary. Everyone underestimated him in the beginning. He became a fan favorite by accident, the makers hadn't expected this. I love how little tidbits are revealed, like one time he looks through some boxes and there is one box named "Vietnam". Not more than that and you could almost miss it but it explains a bit about the character and that he must have gone through some things.

He handles the boxes very expertly. Bottle openers, you say? Great!
But - he needs some Pilsner Urquel, definitely!:-)

Yes, bottle opener, see?

I love finding such stuff!

I think they drink more Budwiser in the US ;) But I can get my Pilsner bottle out for you again! (it's Urquell with double ll, it comes from the word "Quelle" - where a river starts)

This affair with a Trade Mark made me angry with the Americans. It is Budweiser Budvar which is at home in my home town České Budějovice - Budweis. They stole the TM but after a long fight of lawyers, we won:-).
And thank you for correcting my mistake!

Seems I made a mistake as well, forgetting the e in Budweiser.
Yeah, I read about that. Good for you for winning!

Re: amazing
The sky is one of my many picture cardboards, I get them in the craftstore. I have brick walls, grass, water, night sky and lots more. I love them!

Here is a picture of the bottom of the beer cases:

As you can see, it's actually a bottle opener. Mine even have a magnet so you can put them on the fridge. I just keep my eyes open for such things, in various shops. There's lots to be found when you see the world with miniature eyes!
