What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I collect Pop!, Mystery Minis, Hikari, Pop! Tees, Dorbz, and Vinyl Idolz. There are over 400 pieces in my collection. I am always looking to expand and acquire more pieces to fill my shelves with.

How long have you been a collector?
I got my first Pop! three years ago. It wasn't until a year and a half later that my collection really took off and I was hooked.

What are your favorite fandoms?
Marvel, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad

What was your first Funko item?
Alan and Baby Carlos - it was a gift to me from a friend who collects Funko. He thought I would enjoy them just as much as he did... and he was right!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
This year's SDCC exclusive Blue Crystal Heisenberg. It is by far one of the coolest figures in my collection. I loved the show and I absolutely couldn't live without this figure when I heard it was being made.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!
One of my most prized figures was actually obtained by accident. I'm a frequent user on eBay, and one of the figures I had won in an auction was the Bloody Rick Grimes variant. I was so excited to have finally gotten it. So after a week of waiting, my package finally arrived but to my surprise when I opened it, it wasn't Bloody Rick Grimes... IT WAS A 200 PIECE BATMAN FREDDY FUNKO! I was so excited but at the same time I was worried I would have to return it. So I shot the guy an email explaining what I received, and he was super cool about it all. He said I could keep it since it was his mistake and he would also give me my money back, as well as send me the right figure! I was euphoric to say the least. Getting a Freddy Funko Pop! is by far one of my favorite moments during my three years of collecting. Nothing else compares.
