What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?

Right now I have about 60 Pop!s in my collection. I mostly collect Pop!s but have my first Freddy Funko Dorbz coming next week! I also have a bunch of t-shirts and other items from my Smugglers Bounty subscription.

How long have you been a collector?

A little over 2 years.

What are your favorite fandoms?

Mostly Star Wars. I love collecting Pop!s that remind me of something from my childhood, like Ace Ventura, Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones. Really anything that looks cool and I am interested in will end up in my collection.

What was your first Funko item?

C-3PO Pop!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

Right now it would have to be the Grand Admiral Thrawn Pop! He is by far my favorite character on Star Wars Rebels and Funko did an awesome job of bringing his character into Pop! form.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

It all started when I went to a local toy store that has a huge wall of Pop!s. I saw C-3PO and thought, how cool! The rest is history!

More recently, a couple months ago our local Barnes and Noble had a Pop! Swap event, where collectors could bring their Pop!s in to trade and talk to other local collectors. It was a really great experience and just showed me how awesome this community is and made me really glad that I started collecting. During this event I was able to get a few Pop!s on my wish list including the Star Wars Blue Snaggletooth. I had wanted him for a while but I was not subscribed to the Smugglers Bounty box when he was released.

I am really grateful for the people I have met and the feeling you get when you are able to bring home that Pop! you first saw as concept art months back and now have the final product in your hand. Thank you Funko!
