Tell us your favorite Funko story!

My favorite Funko story is when the “I'm going to Hollywood” contest was running. I was so excited to see the 'Making Fun' documentary as I had always been excited to hear Funko's story. I don't normally post videos, as I'm not an on camera type person and quite introverted, but I figured the grand prize was too awesome not to try. I submitted my video and even though I did not win the grand prize I was told that my video was great and it was close to winning and even got a director Freddy for it! It was so great to hear that I was even considered as a finalist and gave me confidence that maybe I can do more if I just put myself out there more!
