What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
Mainly Pop!s with exceptions here and there. I have 278 regular Pop!s and 16 Freddy Pop!s, one of which is a custom Russell Wilson Freddy made by another Funatic, Jango_Fresh. I also have six of the 6"ers and two Pop! Rides, the Batmobile and Ecto-1. My dad keeps some other ones at his office but those are a mystery to me. I have a proto Domo Ghostbuster that is sweet too. I keep zero boxes in case anyone was wondering!

How long have you been a collector?
Since 2011. I got my FunKlub membership before I turned 3.

What are your favorite fandoms?
Harry Potter and comic books. And things that are flocked if that counts.

What was your first Funko item?
I got Darth Vader and Batman Pop!s at the same time at Golden Age Comics in Pike Place Market.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
Whichever one is newest! The Yellowjacket Pop! is really awesome.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!
Two years ago at ECCC, Funko had its own booth and debuted all-white DIY Pop!s. They had their artists at the booth and they were using colored Sharpies to draw on our Pop!s. Ben Butcher asked us if we had any ideas for ours and we didn't have any. So he created Donut Man (pictured at the top of this post). It was so fun watching him draw and talking to him about his favorite cartoons and how he comes up with the ideas. The Funko booth also had outlines to draw on and it was fun creating my own Pop! designs. Those drawings are somewhere in my closet. It is why I want to be a toy maker when I grow up.
