What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
I mainly collect Pop!s and Dorbz, but I also casually collect some Mystery Minis and Pint Size Heroes. I also have a handful of Hikari XS and a couple of Retros. Not counting Mystery Minis and Pint Size Heroes, I think I probably have over 300 pieces (I'm afraid to count, haha).
How long have you been a collector?
What are your favorite fandoms?
Pop! Asia Legendary Creatures & Myths, Disney, Marvel, DC, Rick & Morty, League of the Legends, Stranger Things, Ad Icons, and Funko original characters such as Wetmore monsters and Freddy. I like too many things!
What was your first Funko item?
It was actually a small amount of purchases from the 2015 SDCC booth: Rocket holding potted Groot Pop!, Barbershop Olaf Pop!, and Mossy Groot Dorbz.
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
As far as Pop!s go, probably my DJ Sona. There are too many pieces with sentimental value, but I probably worked hardest to get DJ Sona.
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
All of my favorite Funko memories started after I joined the Funko Funatic forum in May 2016. I have met so many great, kind, and generous people – some of which are now my closest friends. It has truly been life changing and I honestly can't imagine my world without these people. Joining this forum made my collecting experience go from being just about "the toys" to being about a community of people with shared love and interests. It was my Wizard of Oz moment that made collecting go from black and white to being in color. One of my favorite memories was from Fundays of last year. I was so honored to win the Rookie of the Year award. In addition to that, two of my very good friends, Brett and Lauren, also won Collector of the Year and Spirit award. It was such a happy moment and I was so proud of them!
