Here is Karine's Funko Story:
In order to understand the madness that is my funko pop collection, we must go back to the start even before I started collecting. I was not into any kind of “nerdy” stuff growing up. Never watched sci fi or action movies. It was not something that was of interest to me. My brother did introduce me to gaming, a pastime I keep up to this day.
When I went to college for the first time when I was 19, I was introduced to the world of Doctor Who by a good friend and from there my world opened and I watched Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, Indiana Jones all for the first time wondering how I could have gone 20 some years into my life without these wonderful worlds in my life.
I attended my first convention back in September of 2016, which happened to be Fan Expo in Toronto and that where the Funko addiction started with two of the Pops seen in the pic below! Old School Han and Blue Box Leia!
For a while my collection grew slowly, I mainly wanted my funkos to hold a memory of a place or a convention that I had been to so for the next 3 years my collection only grew by a couple pops.
Then the end of the world came and I grew restless I was looking online at all these amazing Funkos that I was dying to get my grubby little hands on but I knew if I was to collect the pops I really wanted I was going to have to forgo the dream of everything being sentimental and just jump in off the deep end and that ladies and gentlemen is how my collection went from about 10 to 60 in a years time.
I discovered K-Dog & Fish after they were recommended to me in a local funko group. I was blown away by their selection and after following them I started turning into the lives, the garage sales and two weeks ago I made the trek down to Bracebridge to see the shop for myself. I can’t imagine getting pops from any other retailer! They are honest with the condition of their pops; they ship in an amazingly reasonable amount of time and the pops are always well protected.
As you can see the bulk of my collection comes from them. What I really like about them is how personable they are, it’s clear that this is not just a business to them it’s a passion and they went everyone to come out happy and they will help you out in any capacity they can.
