Funatic of the Week: JJ Bechere!


JJ Bechere

Sacramento, CA

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

Oh man- anything and everything that not only brings back childhood memories, but the new ones I’ve made in this hobby. I’m roughly at about 400 pieces, from Pop!s, Dorbz, Mystery Minis, Mopeez, Pint Size Heroes, and anything from Funko events like Fright Night!

How long have you been a collector?

Just hitting my two-year mark as a Funko collector, but actually purchased my first Master Chief Wacky Wobbler back in 2007.

What are your favorite fandoms?

Overwatch! Nightmare Before Christmas! Moana! Harry Potter and anything Disney Parks!


What was your first Funko item?

Master Chief Wacky Wobbler!

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

Glow-in-the-dark La Muerte Pop! from The Book of Life. The detail and intricacy of this piece blows me away and it is still me and my 4 year old daughter’s favorite movie.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!

Years after first getting my Master Chief Wobbler, I came across the Pop-Tart Captain America: Civil War promo and picked up my first two Pop!s, Iron Man and Cap! Determined to finish the set, I found some local communities and from there I was hooked- exposed to new lines! Events! People! And an overall amazing culture. Since then, I have met Funatics from the boards at Funko events- like ECCC, my first convention- and locally! I have made some real lifelong friends that join me for other activities or as something as simple as lunch. Learning from some of the original collectors, many who have established themselves as previous Funatics of the Week, I have always focused on helping others enjoy the FUN!

My Funko family means a lot to me. Some great moments come from my late night Overwatch sessions with these guys and gals. I can’t thank this company enough for bringing people together with pop culture and other Funatics, in a way that no other company can rival.
