Tell us your favorite Funko story!

A hurricane and a canceled flight kept me from NYCC 2016 and Qui Gon Jin (my personal grail). When I learned about Holo Qui Gon at Star Wars Celebration I knew this was my chance. Making my way there and then braving the line was super fun! The Funko booth was awesome and I met cool people in line. Then I even got to participate in the Funko Funkast Q&A panel! Super fun trip, got all the Pop!s I wanted, and got a cool memory to go along with getting one of my favorite Pop!s! NYCC Qui Gon you will be mine!
