Funatic of the Week: Alyssa Breitenstein

Alyssa Breitenstein

Portland, OR

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

Harry Potter. I have all of the ones currently available so 52 (including the creatures 3 pack) and all 3 rides. I have other random ones- a few Doctor Who, Newt Scamander, Holly Golightly, but Harry Potter is the only one I actually collect..

How long have you been a collector?

2 years.

What are your favorite fandoms?

Harry Potter

What was your first Funko item?

Hagrid Pop!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

All the Luna Lovegoods (she is so cute)!

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I started dating my now husband who had some Pop!s (prior to dating him I didn’t know much about them) and somehow it came up one day that there were some Harry Potter Pop!s. My first thought was, “Oh man! I am sure they have been out for a long time, there is no way I will find them so no point in trying. But man how cool would it be to have them all.” Then after one particularly rough day at work he came over to my apartment and surprised me with Hagrid! I was totally in love with it and then started looking into for myself and found out that not only were there only 7 released (at the time) but that they had not been released for long. And so the journey to being a crazy Harry Potter Pop! collector began. We have driven to Washington for one, been to multiple malls in one day, and I have even left work to go pick one up (Harry on broom- thank god B&N was close by). I love it and every time I walk into our office and see them on their shelves (plural….) I smile.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

A few years ago on Christmas, my stepdaughter who didn’t live with us at the time didn’t have hardly any money saved. She wanted to buy me something for Christmas, because of how thankful she was for all I did for her. I told her I did not want her to spend her money on me, to save it and buy herself something. Well Christmas Day comes around and she has me a small box, wrapped nicely. When I opened it up I almost cried. She knew how much I loved The Walking Dead and she had gone to a thrift shop and found that Darryl Dixon with the crossbow. Though it was not much, that was the best gift I received that year!! She is the most thoughtful child in the world and that gift still means the world to me!! I love my Katy!!

Ontario, Canada

I have Disney, Game of Thrones & Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. Currently I have 37 figures, 1 of which is a big one, 1 is a double pack & 2 are keychains.

About a year.

Disney and Game of Thrones.

What was your first Funko item?

Belle Pop!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

Groot and my signed Belle figure.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I started collecting after I saw the figures in an EB Games store and told my boyfriend how I thought they were cute, and he suggested I buy some. After that, I bought so many of them! We recently went to FanExpo in Toronto and I got a few new ones, which were Groot, Daenerys Targaryen & Drogon. While at FanExpo, the voice actors for Beauty & the Beast were there and I just had to get Paige O’Hara (the voice of Belle) to sign my figure! She was very nice & I told her that she was my favourite Disney princess. I was so excited to meet her. I also found Groot, who I had been searching for forever! I bought it immediately.
