Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I have so many. Funko is family to me.

I’ve been there for countless Fundays, the HQ grand opening, Making Fun Hollywood premiere, Funkast 100th, just to name a few! I’ve become good friends with some of the designers, one is even my cosplay partner in crime! I met my best friend, Aaron, through the local Seattle collector group and he took me to my first Fundays where I actually met the love of my life, Martin!

Through Funko, I’ve met people from all over the world who share common interests, who would do anything for me, and vice versa. The connections are definitely the most important aspect to me.
