What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I mainly collect Pop!s but I do have a variety of different Funko products in my collection. Currently, I have close to 1500 Pop!s, 35 Wacky Wobblers, over 20 Hikari, 20 Mystery Minis, 10 Retro Freddys (including a 36” Freddy!), and a handful of Fabrikations, Pocket Pop! Keychains, and Spastik Plastik.
How long have you been a collector?
I have been collecting Funko products since November 2011.
What are your favorite fandoms?
Everyone who knows me knows that I'm a HUGE Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan! My Funko collection shows it too! I'm also into Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Marvel, and DC.
What was your first Funko item?
The first Funko item I ever bought was a Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. Pop. Loved how they could make gangster rappers look innocent and harmless!
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
It's almost impossible to pick one favorite piece. I'd have to say a tie between any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Funko item and any Freddy Funko piece.
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
My favorite Funko related story would have to be hosting this year's Funatics Day Out in Arizona. A day to just hang out with other Funatics and local collectors is a day well spent. What was great was that everyone was there to enjoy the company of other collectors and not just there for free stuff. Making people happy through Funko is just as rewarding for me as it was for them! Everyone had a good time and everyone left happy, that's what it's all about. Shout out to the Funatics that drove and flew in for FDO (Dustman, Hulk Smashington, and the 19k's). Special shout out to all the hosts of the other FDOs!
