What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
When I first started collecting, my main focus was villains. DC, Marvel, Disney, any villain that I like. Now my collection has expanded to 106 Pop!s with Avengers, a couple of Freddys, and any other character that I like or with a great design.

How long have you been a collector?
I got my first Pop! as a Christmas present in 2011, but didn't start really collecting until 2 1/2 years ago when I joined the Funatic board.

What are your favorite fandoms?
I love Marvel comics and movies, Star Wars, animated shows like Legend of Korra and The Last Airbender, and Disney.

What was your first Funko item?
My first Pop! was given to me as a Christmas present from my best friend. It was a Captain America Pop! and has been the center of my collection. Even if he is missing a helmet wing!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
It's hard to choose just one piece. I love a lot of them like my first Captain America and both of my FDO Freddys, but my favorite has to be my mini Winnie the Pooh. My friend gave him to me and I take him everywhere, taking pictures of Winnie the Pooh having adventures.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!
I got more into collecting after my friend saw the first few I had bought, and we started looking up the Pop!s and Funko. After that we found the Funko Funatic message board and saw the huge following that they had. Within a couple months, we were on our way to our first FDO (Funatics Day Out) in NYC and made new friends with other Funatics… and I haven't stopped collecting since!
