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

Right now, I only collect Pop! Vinyl figures. I’m not quite at the number some of these cool collectors have, but at last count I’ve got 34 (and counting!).

What was your first Funko item?

Bilbo Baggins, right before An Unexpected Journey was released! It was a holiday present from a classmate, I’ll treasure it forever.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

I love all of my Pop! figures dearly, but it has to be a tie between The Flash (actor Grant Gustin signed it on-set one day, it was the neatest thing) and Morgan Rielly. One of the best parts about living in Vancouver, is that a lot of television shows and movies film in the city, including a few with Pop!s.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I’ve been a hockey fan since before I started collecting Pop!s, and have been wishing for an NHL line, since… forever! When I found out they were coming at the end of August, I was stoked and immediately pre-ordered a few. The release dates kept on being pushed back, and I was worried I wouldn’t get them in-time (one in particular, Morgan Rielly). The Toronto Maple Leafs were coming to town in a couple of weeks, and I really, really, wanted to get the Pop! signed by one of my favourite hockey players.

My local store had 2/3 ready for pick-up mid-month, but their Morgan shipment was absent! Luckily a nearby store had one, so I tracked it down and purchased it that day. I got it signed a week later in-person, and it’s definitely my new favourite Pop! One of the best (but stressful at the beginning) fan experiences ever. Nothing better than combining Pop!s and hockey… it’s been a long time coming! Hope there are more NHL lines in the future!
