What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I collect mostly Pop!s, but I love the Fabrikations and Dorbz lines as well! Mystery Minis are always fun too because of the blind-box surprise! My collection has over 500 pieces, including over 300 Pop!s!

How long have you been a collector?
4 years.

What are your favorite fandoms?
Star Wars first by far! Followed second by Marvel and DC Superheroes. But I love that Funko has so many franchises, even for smaller stuff. I love my X-Files, GI-Joe, and Magic the Gathering Pops!

What was your first Funko item?
Original C-3PO Funko Pop! Star Wars #13. C-3P0 has always been my favorite. I now have regular and chrome versions of both original and Force Awakens C-3PO, as well as the K-3PO and TC-14 exclusive variants!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
I love all the exclusives, so there are too many to choose from! If I had to choose just one piece it would be the Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot Super Deluxe Vinyl! The scale and quality are just so impressive! I hope Funko makes more characters in that line!

Tell us your favorite Funko story!
I love collecting Funko with my 4 year old daughter, Lily. We have a special room in our basement where we house our collection. It is always fun when we get a new piece and find a place for it! My favorite story is that I took my daughter to a toys and collectibles shop where they had a realistic life-sized Predator statue (from the movie Predator). Oddly, (but very adorably) she loved it! So I got her a Funko Pop! Predator for a present which she now treasures! I followed that up with the exclusive invisible Predator variant and I sprung for the Predator Hikari for our room. She now has her own collection of other Pop!s too! Her favorite is Disney's Inside Out! I love that this hobby is something we can share together!
