What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
Quite a few! Pop!s, Hikari, Dorbz, Vinyl Idolz, Retro Freddys, some Wobblers, ReAction/Action Figures, Legacy, with some Blox and plushies mixed in there. I’m a huge collector of anything and everything “Joker”, so anytime I see Funko release something new, no matter what the line, I have to have it immediately! Needless to say, I’ve already outgrown the spot I keep all my Joker pieces. I don’t know an exact # for my collection, but if I had to guess, I’d say I’m in the upwards of 600+ on Pop!s, about 65 Dorbz and among everything else, probably another 100 or so. My collection is spread out amongst my work office, home “office” (wife calls it a playroom), and sadly, a storage unit.
How long have you been a collector?
I’ve been collecting for almost 7 years.
What are your favorite fandoms?
My #1 is anything DC, but after that it would be Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and movies/cartoons from my childhood.
What was your first Funko item?
Batman 01 Pop!
What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?
So hard to choose one! But if I had to pick one, it would be my Joker Bobble Pez. I am a big Pez collector also, so when I had a chance to grab it, I did not hesitate. I also own the prototype, but I’m still searching for the metallic!
Tell us your favorite Funko story!
Not so much a story, but just how amazing the Funko community is as a whole. After collecting for a few years, I randomly came across Funkofunatic.com and signed up. Over the past 5 years, I have met so many other Funatics from all over the world, so many of which have turned into amazing friendships. I’ve traveled to ECCC, SDCC and NYCC, as well as attended many Funatic gatherings, just to spend time with people who share the same interests as me.
When I first started collecting, I combined my love of photography with Funko – I took my Pop!s everywhere with me, snapping them in their “natural settings.” Photographing Pop!s turned into something that I really enjoy and also allows me to be creative. The thing I’m most proud of is being asked to be part of the last two “World of Pop!” books. The fact that I’m able to do something I love, for a company that I love, means the world to me.
