Tell us your favorite Funko story!
When I was just a little 12 year old, Pop!s were really just starting to become popular and you would see the little displays in Barnes & Noble all the time, and I was absolutely OBSESSED. But when I was younger I had tons of obsessions and moved on pretty quickly, and we really didn't have a whole lot of money, so my mom was NOT about to spend $10 on a toy I'd just lose anyway.
For months I persisted, begging for one every time I saw one. And one day, I was with my Grandpa at Walgreens, and that was the first time I'd ever seen Pop!s anywhere but a bookstore, and the brat in me came out. I practically got down on my hands and knees and begged him to buy me the little Iron Man figure, and he did!
From there on I was absolutely hooked. Now my collection has absolutely become apart of my identity, I've met such amazing people in the community and these adorable little figures just mean the world to me.
