Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I started dating my now husband who had some Pop!s (prior to dating him I didn't know much about them) and somehow it came up one day that there were some Harry Potter Pop!s. My first thought was, "Oh man! I am sure they have been out for a long time, there is no way I will find them so no point in trying. But man how cool would it be to have them all." Then after one particularly rough day at work he came over to my apartment and surprised me with Hagrid! I was totally in love with it and then started looking into for myself and found out that not only were there only 7 released (at the time) but that they had not been released for long. And so the journey to being a crazy Harry Potter Pop! collector began. We have driven to Washington for one, been to multiple malls in one day, and I have even left work to go pick one up (Harry on broom- thank god B&N was close by). I love it and every time I walk into our office and see them on their shelves (plural....) I smile.
