Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I started collecting back in 2011 when I bought the collector's edition of Gears of War 3. Since then I've been buying all types of geeky toys and collectables from movies, comics and video games. Last year, I found my first Pop! at a second-hand store for $2, and this was the start of my Funko collection. From there I bought a couple of characters from things I liked (Magic the Gathering, Borderlands and Alien).

When Fallout 4 was announced I went ballistic. I'd loved Fallout for years and was so excited for the new game, but was more excited for the merch; I pre-ordered every bit of Fallout merch I could find (I'm still doing it till this day). I even bought a full case of Mystery Minis and then bought even more of the GameStop exclusive ones. If Funko never released any Fallout merc, my collection of Fallout gear would be nothing like it is today. I hope Funko continues to release more Fallout Pop!s and expands the Fallout merch into other product lines.
