What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
When I first joined the Funko Funatic board, I really liked the customs made by JCP. I saw a picture of a maskless Darth Vader he made and was super impressed. I didn't know him and felt too new to ask him if he could make me one. Over a year later, he asked on the board if anyone was interested in any of his customs. I jumped at the chance and he made a maskless Vader for me. This is definitely my favorite piece.
Tell us your favorite Funko story (for example- why did you start collecting? What is the story behind your favorite item?).
I have been to two Comic Cons and two Fundays now and there are so many great moments, and on the board also. It's hard to narrow it down to just one moment. Since it's a “collecting" moment, I'll go with winning a retro Freddy proto from a contest Brian had on the Funko Funatic board. That was a great moment for me.
The products Funko produces brings me back to when I was kid, when I had every Star Wars toy imaginable. Funko also make a bunch of great stuff that feeds my current interests: Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Nightmare Before Christmas. There is no shortage of amazing pieces to choose from. The people in this community are awesome also. I have met many cool people and look forward to hanging out with them in July more than getting the latest exclusives!
