Tell us your favorite Funko story!
Since I started my collection I have been to two Star Wars Celebrations, the most recent of which was Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. Each morning I woke up especially early and made my way down to the convention center to wait in line. To most this would seem like time better used sleeping, but for me, it is some of the more memorable time spent at the convention. I thought I would be on my phone and keeping to myself, however, this was not the case. Instead this was when everyone was able to discuss their Star Wars experience, collections, fan theories, etc. I, personally, ended up talking about my Star Wars Pop! collection for hours.
By the time the convention opens, a small community had formed and each went their own way into the convention hall. I already knew I was heading straight for the Funko booth to get this year’s exclusives. When I got to the booth, I got into another line and was able to start all new conversations about Funko and Star Wars. Waiting in the Funko line is one of my favorite memories from the Celebration and I was able to walk out with a few new Pop!s for my collection, which is always a plus.
