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

I mostly collect Captain America, Marvel, and Lord of the Rings Pop!s, but I also enjoy a few random ones here and there. Carl from "Up!" Is one of my favorites because my wife says he reminds her of me.

How long have you been a collector?

A little over two years.

What are your favorite fandoms?

All Marvel movies.

What was your first Funko item?

My mom bought me the #6 Captain America because she knew I was a fan and I believe she found him at Walgreens. After that I decided I would buy a few more and it was all down hill from there.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

My ECCC 2017 Captain America World War Pop! It was one of the first "expensive" ones I bought. I really love the details especially on the goggles and the helmet.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

My mother was visiting one time and she bought me my first Funko Pop! (Captain America #6). Though I had never collected toys before, I really enjoyed my first figure and I decided it would be a fun hobby to collect more. I'm very selective about the ones I buy as I enjoy quality over quantity. I recently bought the “Infinity War” set and they are some of my favorite thus far. My first complete set was the Lord of the Rings. I recently found the Aragorn and Arwyn 2-pack that made the set "whole". I take my Pop!s out of the box because I don't plan to sell them. Really they are for me to enjoy and, hopefully, for my child to play with one day.
