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

I primarily collect Pop!s, but if I see a really nice Dorbz or Rock Candy, I won't hesitate to pick them up. As of my time writing this, I have exactly 50 Funko pieces in my possession. (Not counting t-shirts or my dad's small, but awesome collection).

How long have you been a collector?

I started back in December 2014, but didn't really get into collecting until about a year ago.

What are your favorite fandoms?

League of Legends, Overwatch, almost anything game related, Anime, and some Disney here and there.

What was your first Funko item?

The Joker Batman Pop! from the December 2014 Loot Crate.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

It's about an even split between Hollow Ichigo, GitD Kaneki, and Metallic Miku. All of which were gifts in some way shape or form.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

Is it okay if I go wth 3 stories? My first (and more recent) would have to be my joining of the Funatics forums! As of my writing I've only been a member for 11 days and I've loved every day of it. Everyone is friendly and I've already made a few friends!

My second story would be getting my dad to get his first Pop! In the past I always tried to convince him to get at least one, asking, "Are you interested in this or that?" almost every time I was out hunting without him. Eventually he caved with the release of the Silicon Valley line and bought Jared, his first Pop! Since then he has gotten Han Solo with Tauntaun, Chrome Lightning McQueen, and Luke in the Landspeeder!

Okay, last and final story. Kudos to you if you read through all of this. This one actually involves Hollow Ichigo. So when I really got into Pop! collecting and became aware of all the fandoms it covered I was bewildered at the sheer amount. While looking through some of the various anime lines, a certain Pop! caught my eye- Hollow Ichigo (this was also around when I finally got to finishing Bleach so it was an even cooler piece). Since I got into the Pop! game after he was released, I had never seen one in person. It wasn't until March of this year that I actually managed to get him thanks to a really kind and friendly person at a local trade event. It makes me really love Funko and its community. A giant group of people, all sharing the same interest and helping each other out!
