Tell us your favorite Funko story!

Becoming a collector and being a part of the Funko family has made my life better. I was heading downhill and drinking a lot. Collecting helped me to see something I could enjoy every day. It showed me the rewards from hard work instead of throwing money literally down the drain. I quit drinking and smoking cigarettes. Funko has saved my life and molded it for the better.

I LOVE all of my Pop!s. Recently, my husband and I noticed that we started to have a leak in the roof of our home. First thing we did was relocate the Pop!s to a safer location. Not one was damaged and all of them are safe. I guess that's dedication :-)
