Tell us your favorite Funko story!

In 2014 at Emerald City Comic Con, I got to meet and hang out with the Funko crew for the first time. I remember being so excited for the green Male and Female DIY exclusive Male and Female POP!s. I got to the Washington State Convention Center very early to make sure I was in line first. I wanted to make sure they didn't sell out before I got there.

When I arrived at the Funko booth I was welcomed and treated like family. I hung out at the booth for most of the day just chatting about everything Funko. Everyone working at the booth drew amazing DIY sketch cards for me. I have since had those all framed and they are now hanging on my wall. I also passed around a white DIY POP! that everyone signed for me. I will never forget how special Funko made me feel that day. It really showed me how much Funko truly cares about fans like me. To this day I have felt the same way at every Funko event or party I've attended.
