The Pop! is available to pre-order right away for £12.99 with a release date slated for August 2019 and if you’re lucky enough you’ll be bagging the Anti-Venom Chase which will only be available via this “Chance” system. PIAB have put a limit of 3 Per Customer on this release to counter people ordering more then their fair share so that they have a better chance of copping the Chase.

Agent Venom is the latest Marvel character to join the Pop In A Box Stickered Exclusives collection! If you’re very very lucky, you could receive the color-inverted white Chase Variant.
In school, Eugene “Flash” Thompson was a classmate and bully of Peter Parker, but a big fan of Spider-Man. After university, inspired by Spidey’s heroism, he joined the United States Army and lost his legs after saving his partner from enemy forces.
Affected by this loss, Flash Thompson enlisted in Project Rebirth, a secretive operation that merged captured symbiotes with soldiers, and so the super soldier Agent Venom was born from the legendary bond between Venom and Flash Thompson. Agent Venom has been said to be one of the best representations of the symbiote. Flash Thompson is a complicated and sometimes dark character, whose ideals and heroism often clash with his anger and despair.
After many years of adventures with his friend and partner, Agent Venom was separated from the symbiote by the FBI. After finding the symbiote again, Spider-man spilled artificial Anti-Venom on Flash, turning parts of the symbiote attached to Flash into Anti-Venom, the color-inverted version of Agent Venom, represented here as a rarer Chase Variant.
Agent Anti-Venom would go on to fight many enemies, including Thanos, and he would eventually meet his end heroically by fighting the Red Goblin.
Although Agent Venom has yet to make an appearance in the MCU, there may be a cinematic future for the character as Flash Thompson was included in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), where he is played by Tony Revolori.
