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

I currently have 770 Funko pieces in my collection. Most of them are Pop!s, but there are also action figures, Dorbz, Hikari, mystery vinyls, Wacky Wobblers, etc. My favorite line to collect right now is anything horror related, I CANNOT get enough!

How long have you been a collector?

I have been collecting for about 5 years.

What are your favorite fandoms?

I love to collect any of the Disney releases, Joker, Spider-Man, and horror!

What was your first Funko item?

WALL-E! I was searching online for products from the movie, and stumbled across the WALL-E Pop!...and then I became obsessed!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

My favorite piece is the glow in the dark La Muerte Pop! from the movie The Book of Life. There is such incredible detail to it already, and adding the fact that it glows is just the cherry on top!

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

A lot of people come to my house, and they enjoy looking at my collection and taking pictures. One time, a friend sent another friend a picture, and they said, "Wow! That is awesome! What store are you at?" That made me feel really awesome that people thought my collection looked cool enough to be a store! I lost about 120 pounds over the last year, so every time I hit a new milestone, instead of food, I would reward myself with a new Pop! It really helped keep me motivated. I keep them displayed in my workout center so I can always see them daily, and it reminds me of how far I have come!
