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

I mostly collect Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney Pop!s, but I don’t limit myself to just that! I’ve branched out a little into other things I enjoy, like Rick and Morty, and I have a few Dorbz and Pint Size Heroes as well!

How long have you been a collector?

I’ve been actively collecting for almost 2 years.


What are your favorite fandoms?

Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney! Especially anything Disney Parks.

What was your first Funko item?

Shellabration Exclusive Metallic SpongeBob Pop!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

SDCC Snoke is probably my favorite, but I don’t have him yet as of this writing. But out of the stuff I currently have, my favorite is either metallic SpongeBob or SDCC Hatbox Ghost.


Tell us your favorite Funko story!

In 2013, Nickelodeon ran a contest where you’d join in on their page and would have to hope to be randomly selected to virtually control a physical claw machine that was in Universal Studios. The claw machine was filled with clear plastic balls, and if you managed to grab one, they’d send you a Shellabration exclusive metallic SpongeBob Pop! as a prize! When it finally got to my turn, the live camera that was showing the claw machine went out, so I had to go random with where I wanted the claw to go. Got SUPER lucky and somehow managed to grab one! I won my very first Funko item, and little did I know it was just the beginning of a whole collection!
