Here is Brian's Funko Story:
I began my collection about four years ago. I’ve been an avid fan of Comic-Cons for some years and began to see more and more Funkos appear. I was determined not to buy any because I knew that the first Funko would be the start of a major collection.
Then, for Christmas one year, one of my fourth grade students gifted me my first Funko. The student knew that I was a huge Yoda fan, so he gave me the Dagobah Yoda pop. Once that seal was broken, I went Pop wild!
My collection is now over 300 strong. I have about 50 Star Wars themed Pops, but I love to get a little bit of everything. I find Pops at Comic-Cons, antique shops, and from K-Dog and Fish whenever I’m passing through Cottage Country.
My favourite Pop is V for Vendetta. It was among the first in my collection and I rarely see it anywhere. The pops that I’m always searching for are the original Ghostbusters 4-pack, the Gatekeeper/Zuul/Keymaster 3-pack, and Jaws eating Quint. I also hope to get my hands on some Muppets, original Simpsons and Friends Pops, and Indiana Jones. Whenever I’m reading books to my students that have connected Funko.
I stumbled on to K-Dog and Fish when passing through Bracebridge on my way to a cottage that I rent with my wife and her family. I was so excited and could easily spend a whole day in the shop. Last time I was there, I bought the giant Han Solo in the Millennium Falcon Pop, which I had always wanted for my collection.
I have no idea what the end game is for my collection, but for now I enjoy the search for my favourite pops and displaying them in my basement. Have Fun everyone!
