What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?

Currently I am collecting as much DC Heroes stuff as possible, but my Pop! collection has items from a lot of the different Funko lines. Batman just happens to be my favorite character so a good 20% of my collection is just Batman figures! As of the last count, I was at 380 in hand with anywhere from 8-15 on order from various places.

How long have you been a collector?

Since Christmas 2014

What are your favorite fandoms?

Batman (any DC I guess, but really specifically Batman), followed closely by anything that just reminds me of how AMAZING my childhood was.

What was your first Funko item?

The Invisible Bilbo Baggins Pop!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

Toss up between the Zur En Arrh Batman Pop! and the whole set from the Batman Animated Series.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

My collection was started by my wife. She gifted me the Invisible Bilbo Pop! for Christmas in 2014. I thought it was cool, but didn't really realize what it was or what all was being made by Funko at the time. Two weeks later my son stumbled upon a Spider-Man Pop! from the new movie on sale at Target and insisted I get it since I am a web developer. About 8 months later, my family and I moved to Denver for a job opportunity, at the time I had collect about 12 Pop!s and was pretty proud of my collection. Within a year we had to make the move back to Texas for my job and I had to pack up 6 crates, carefully packaged, to move back. Now I have almost 400 and I may need a new house soon.......
