What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?

I primarily collect Star Wars and DC Comics. Lately, I’ve been focusing on my Rebels line. My grandson and I have been hunting down the exclusives! We’re both subscribed to Smuggler’s Bounty and we open them together. In total, I have a little over 130 Pop!s. I have 3 Dorbz, 3 mini Hikari, 2 Salt and Pepper Shakers, 1 mug, 2 action figures and 3 Pocket Pop!s. I collect a little from a lot of different lines and am excited to have just started my Disney Collection with my 3 favorite Disney Villains!

How long have you been a collector?

2 years


What are your favorite fandoms?

Star Wars, particularly Rebels, but I love anything Star Wars!

What was your first Funko item?

Stormtrooper Pop! with Dewback

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

It’s a tossup between Maleficent with Flames, Grand Admiral Thrawn and Captain Rex.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

I was so happy to receive a Captain Rex Pop! in the Smuggler’s Bounty box! I took my grandson to see The Clone Wars movie back in 2008. Captain Rex became our favorite character and I got to see him grow up as we watched The Clone Wars TV series together. We were distraught when the show ended, but now we love Rebels just as much. We also found one of our all time favorite villains in The Clone Wars: none other than Darth Maul. Watching him and Rex come back in Rebels was fantastic. What was even more fantastic was us opening our Smuggler’s Bounty boxes together to find them there. We wait for each other’s to come to open them, together.
