Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I was at a local arcade with my brother and we were walking around trying to find something to do. I looked inside the claw machine to see if there was anything in it that was worth trying to get. Some cheap necklaces, a watch, and that’s when I saw a Woody Pop! (Toy Story was my favorite movie at the time) and just had to get it. Now at this point I had no idea what a Pop! was, so I had no clue I could buy it for $10 on pretty much any website at the time. I ended up spending about $25 to get my first Pop! from a claw machine. When I finally won it and pulled it out, I looked on the back and saw all the other figures in the line… I wanted those too… now I have 253 Pop!s.
