How long have you been a collector?
I have been a collector since 2015, when I saw the Pop! line for Batman Arkham Knight. I immediately fell in love with how the Pop! managed to look unique from other toys while still looking like the characters!

My absolute favorite fandom is Avatar the Last Airbender. However, I also love Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney.
What was your first Funko item?
Pop! Lotso way back in 2011!
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
My favorite piece is the Aang on Airscooter Chase (I’m still so shocked and excited this show got its own line!)
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
Growing up, I would always go to New York City with my dad to visit comic book shops and toy stores. Whenever we went to these shops, he would always gravitate towards toys of one series - Astro Boy. One day, we went to our favorite comic book shop to hunt for pops and relive old memories. To our absolute shock, there was an actually an Astro Boy Pop! on the shelf! Being able to buy a Pop! from this series meant the world to us and truly showed the diverse group of lines available.
