How long have you been a collector?

Anything superhero related – I’m a big time Superman and Ninja Turtles guy!
What was your first Funko item?
My first Funko Pop! was a Superman that my wife bought me for my birthday one year. I was hooked ever since.
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
I love the basic Superman because it's my first Pop! ever, it's a representation of my favorite superhero, and it came from my wife.
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
One of my favorite things about Pop! figures is how beautifully they photograph in the real world. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, especially when working with action figures, and I find that I love taking pictures of Pop! figures the most. I've been able to get friends to start collecting Pop! figures not just by seeing how incredible each figure is but after seeing certain pictures I take with them they come to have a new love for the figures. They see the happiness and joy in them.
I went to Disney World with my wife a year ago and every picture I took was a Disney Stitch Pop! figure in various Disney World locations, with various Disney Characters, and performers. You can see the joy it brought everyone around us every time that Pop! figure was brought out and I was taking its picture. Vacationers and staff loved it!
I have friends now collecting them, taking pictures of them, taking them on vacations too, and now giving them to others as gifts. These are people that are not typically collectors so it's great to see that I'm able to share my love of Pop! figures with others in numerous ways and they then get hooked and share the love with others too. Now I have a Pop! collector community around me 24/7!
