Tell us your favorite Funko story!

My fiance got me my first Star Wars Funko item. I had just started getting into Pop!s and I was searching for the Punisher Walgreens exclusive. She went to Walgreens to get some medicine and had looked for the Punisher. When they didn't have it she felt bad and picked up the Boba Fett Fabrikation for me instead. I loved it! It was so well done and the little details on Boba are just awesome. I started getting strictly into Star Wars items after that.

I have some random Pop!s from Marvel and Call of Duty but out of my 100+ items most are Star Wars. I just completed my first set which is the Rogue One Pop! figures. I am almost caught up with The Force Awakens line. Once I finish that, I will catch up on the Original Trilogy Pop!s I am missing. I love collecting Pop!s. They are so beautifully sculpted with great quality.

I have passed on collecting Pop!s to my 7 year old stepson. He is now collecting Despicable Me and Peanuts Pop! figures. He gets so excited when we get new ones. I am excited to see what Funko has in store next for us to collect.
