What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I currently have right around 300 Funko items. My collection consists mainly of Wacky Wobblers and Pop!s, with a mixture of Mystery Minis, Dorbz, Blox, Hikari and a couple Mopeez and older Funko lines.

How long have you been a collector?
I've been collecting for a little over 3.5 years now.

What are your favorite fandoms?
Batman, Iron Man, Ninja Turtles, Starlord and New England Patriots!

What was your first Funko item?
Well, technically, my first Funko item was an Iron Man Wacky Wobbler that I purchased at a Blockbuster over 6 years ago. The Funko item that got me hooked, though, was a Batman Pop! Bobble-head that I purchased about 3.5 years ago.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
This one's pretty tough, but I'd have to go with my 9" Batman Pop! prototype.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!
One of my favorite memories is how I recently completed my Iron Man Wacky Wobbler collection. This line of production pieces features over 35 regular, chase and exclusives (including the Freddy Starks). I had been actively trying to complete the set for over 2 years! Being that the majority of pieces were discontinued or in the permanent collections of Funko veterans, they were not the easiest pieces to come by. Countless e-mails to eBay and Amazon sellers asking for pictures of the Wobblers base, numerous messages to the older collectors and a few lucky sales led me to be 99% complete. The last piece I was missing was the red Freddy Stark Wobbler chase and I just couldn't get my hands on it. I finally bugged an older collector enough to make him consider splitting up his complete set of Freddy Stark chase Wobblers. After 6+ months and numerous e-mails, he finally sold me the last piece to my collection! This really shows how kind and generous Funatics can be. He didn't need to split up his complete set, but he genuinely wanted to help me complete my set. This is why I love collecting Funko. The figures are amazing, but some of the people I've met are even more amazing!
