I had displayed them in the boxes until recently.
A lot of geeks enjoy collecting things and I’m no exception. I’ve collected USB Thumb Drives, WarHammer models, Legos, board games, Magic The Gathering cards, video games, and I’ve even got a few fidget spinners. But one collection I’m actually proud to show off is my Funko Pops.
K2SO is such a great character, and a cool looking robot Funko Pop too!
What’s a Funko Pop you ask? It’s a bobble head, although some don’t have bobbable heads, of characters from across the geek-o-verse. Characters from movies, comics, video games and more have been Funkofied.
I am groot!
Most Funko Pops look a lot alike. Giant heads (good for bobbling if they bobble) and tiny bodies. Big eyes. They’ve been criticized for being too similar but I think the sameness of them all is what I like best about them. I can get Vault Boy from the video game Fallout and Spider Gwen from comic books and they can both sit on the shelf next to each other and not look out of place. The Funko Pop style makes characters from radically different genres look alright mixed together as one large collection.
Not being a big DC fan (at the moment at least) I didn’t have any DC Funkos until I saw the Wonder Woman movie. Now I have a Wonder Woman. Is this the beginning of a DC collection and interest? We’ll see.
Until recently I kept all of them in their boxes because they stack, store, and display so well that way. There was something special about a wall of exactly same sized boxes stacked on top of each other with my favorite characters inside of them. But I finally took them all out of their boxes in the hopes that the figures themselves would be more visually appealing without the box obscuring them. I haven’t decided if I like this better. The wall of boxes was pretty neat imho.
For the record I have 31 Funko Pops. Although I accidentally bought Captain Marvel twice soooooooo, 30 unique ones I suppose 🙂 I know my collection is TINY compared to others. But they are expensive so I’ll continue to grow my collection slowly. What I have makes me happy. Here’s my whole collection below.
