What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I am a Star Wars Funko Pop! collector. I have more than 60 Pop!s and sticking with mostly the exclusive variants for now (but still keeping a few regulars). I know that my collection might be small compared to others but I am sticking to my "pure Star Wars" line… plus 6” Dragons!
How long have you been a collector?
10 months and counting!
What are your favorite fandoms?
I love Star Wars and television series like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
What was your first Funko item?
Daryl Dixon of The Walking Dead. My office mate influenced me! This is so addicting! Hahaha!
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
Holographic Darth Vader Pop!
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
I started collecting in April 2015, when I found out that there was a Pop! of Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. I was so eager to get one and after I did, I couldn't stop getting every single Pop! that I related to. During my first three months of collecting, I got EVERYTHING that appealed to me - Disney, Game of Thrones, Television, Movies, Monsters. I finally decided to stick with one line and narrowed my focus on Star Wars. I was so happy when I was finally able to check Holo Darth Vader off my grail list- I still have an ongoing search for a few other “grail” Star Wars pieces.
I know that I am a newer collector but I am very fond of Funko. I even have a custom Pop! of myself wearing my Grade School and High School uniform! It was made with the DIY female Pop! as base.
Finally, as a single mother, I have found that collecting toys alongside my son's collection of action figures is very fulfilling. I get to bond with him over our toys and we can relate to each other very well.
