I collect ALL Funko lines. It’s so cool to see the same character across two or three different lines. Currently I’m at over 400 Funko items ranging from Funko Blox, Mystery Minis, Legacy Collection, Hikari, Vinyl Idolz, Wacky Wobblers, Dorbz and of course Funko POP!s, POP!s being the majority of my collection.
How long have you been a collector?
I have been collecting Funko for around four years now
What are your favorite fandoms?
My favorite fandoms include Star Wars, Marvel, Disney and The Walking Dead.
What was your first Funko item?
My first Funko purchases are a tie between The Simpsons and Han Solo Pop!s.
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
It’s so hard to choose only one Funko item as my favorite. I was so happy when Roger Rabbit got the Funko POP! treatment so I’m going to go with him. I hope Roger Rabbit can get a Dorbz treatment someday too!
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
I started collecting Funko POP!s when I first saw the Homer Simpson POP! sitting on a shelf and thought right away I needed to have that. He just looked so damn cute holding his pink sprinkled donut! From there I went to the light and dark side and started on my Star Wars POP! collection. My Star Wars collection and Disney collection are my favorites! Now in just a few short years my collection has its own room in my house. Funko has taken over and I love it!!!
I also love taking pictures of all my Funko items and posting them on my Instagram, and because of one of my photos, I won the Back to the Future Marty McFly on Hoverboard proto!!! It was an awesome giveaway where you had to take a BTTF POP! picture and my photo was chosen. He is the only proto I own and I was so happy when I got him. I even bought an extra Hoverboard Marty so I could display it in a box.
Even though my collection is mostly displayed in their boxes, I love getting a new POP! or Dorbz and opening them up. Sometimes I can’t even wait till I get home. They are so much better out of the box and there is so much detail you can’t see if you keep them in the box. Every single POP! I have has been opened and I love telling the "mint in box" collectors that! As Brian said, "go boxless, it’s more fun!"
