Over the course of the last couple years, I have accumulated quite a bit of Funko Pop figures. For those unfamiliar, Funko Pops our little vinyl figurines of pop culture icons with big heads and big beady eyes. Almost like the modern-day bobblehead but many of them don’t bobble. Except Groot. He’s the only one that bobbles.
(And yes, I know Dollar Store Jesus isn’t a Funko, but he likes to hang out here anyway.)
Personally, unlike many Funko collectors, I don’t try to go after the whole line of characters. A fellow friend of mine has a wall of them still in their boxes. If I ever found myself getting that bad, I would need a bigger apartment.
I collect from a bunch of different franchises. Of course, Strawberry Shortcake is my favorite, followed by Adventure Time, Big Bang Theory, Gudetama, and Disney. I also have a couple My Little Pony figures as well.
What I love the most are the minifigures that are found in the blind boxes. Once in awhile I treat myself to a blind box whenever I get the chance, but with work being sporadic, I haven’t had the funds to do so in a while.
I always love the design of a Funko Pop, often very minimalist in nature and yet still very much detailed. A very fun item for any collector no matter what you’re into.
