What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I collect all things Funko, from old school to shiny and new! Wacky Wobblers, Spastik Plastik, Fantastik Plastik, Bobble Banks, Mystery Minis, Pop!s, Hikari, and general Funko memorabilia like catalogs, pins, shoes, and more! My main focus right now is continuing my old school Wobbler collection and my ever-growing Pop! collection, with a little Hikari thrown in there. I currently have at least 728 Funko pieces on display - and that's not counting anything still boxed up (from a move).
How long have you been a collector?
Ever since Christmas of 2011.
What are your favorite fandoms?
Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, Harry Potter, Marvel, and FREDDY FUNKO!
What was your first Funko item?
My first Funko item was a Bumble Pop!
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
It is so hard to pick just one! Bone Daddys will always be some of my favorite pieces, but I also really love my Freddys. I think if I had to pick just one, it would be the 1/5 Blue Hikari Freddy that Brian gave to me!
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
I'll tell the story of how it all started... My first ever Funko piece was a Bumble Pop! that I got as a stocking stuffer in 2011. I didn't even realize it was made by Funko at the time because it was out of its box. I took Bumble with me everywhere; played around with him, took pictures with him. Then, I started picking up some Star Wars Wacky Wobblers from Barnes & Noble in early 2012. That led to me looking up Funko and finding the Funatic Forum, where after I took one look at the MASSIVE Wobbler collections of old school collectors - the rest was history. I was fully HOOKED on FUNKO! It wasn't until that point that I discovered that the Bumble figure that I loved so much was actually my first ever Funko Pop! It will always hold a great deal of sentimental value for me. I still to this day take him around with me every now and then to go on adventures!
