What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
Our family collects Funko together, so we have A LOT of lines. The ones that are specifically mine include Riverdale (the best show ever!), Once Upon a Time, Hercules, Aladdin, Twilight, The Emperor's New Groove and some Suicide Squad. I'm just starting the Sand Lot too! We're also looking for the I Love Lucy Pops for me right now because I got to help pick some of the colors for it when I was at HQ. All together, our family has almost 700 Pop!s plus some minis and plushies!
How long have you been a collector?
We've been collecting as a family for about 3 years. My dad started collecting a few at first, and then I wanted to collect them too. It became something we do together. We live in the Midwest, so there's not as many places to get Funko here, so we take roadtrips – sometimes to other states – to go on Pop Hunts! It's one of my favorite things to do with my Dad. Now mom – and sometimes my little brother – come along too!
What are your favorite fandoms?
I love Riverdale – we need more of them!
What was your first Funko item?
I think my very first Pop! was Hawkeye. He's my favorite Marvel character and my cousin gave it to me when we were just getting started collecting.
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
My favorite item in my collection is the Pop! of me! There are lots of Pops that I love, but the one that Funko made of me for my Make-A-Wish is amazing. The chase that Yoko made for me with rhinestones is a one-of-a-kind, and I love it so much!
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
I have lots of great Funko stories because the company has become part of our family, but the very best story was getting to go to the headquarters in Washington for my Make-A-Wish. I was so overwhelmed by the whole day. Everyone made me feel so special and were so nice. I loved getting to hang out with everyone, shop for all my favorites and then to receive my very own Pop was totally insane! It was so cool that they let me film my own unboxing in the actual studio. Yoko and Hilary were so cool and encouraged me to start my own YouTube channel. I've been a little slow getting it done, but I'm still excited about it. Ben Butcher is really cool too. I had fun hanging out with him and loved his office – it was straight out of the 70's! I keep telling my mom that I want to go back to the HQ, but she reminds me that it won't be the same. It doesn't matter though because I'm a funatic for life!
