Here is Mari's Funko Story:
My first Funko items were The Bride of Frankenstein and Frankenstein. I'm a fan horror movies, so I thought it was cool they made figures of these movie monsters. I really didn't start growing my collection until Suicide Squad and Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 came out. Harley Quinn and Rocket Racoon were my favourite characters from those movies. I even made an anniversary cake for my husband and I one year with a Harley Quinn Dorbz and Joker Pop.
Just like everyone else, I watched HT Nerdette on YouTube to keep up to date what Pops were coming out and if there was one that I liked, I'd add it to my collection. However, after Deadpool came out, The Merck with A Mouth also became one of my favourites very quickly.
I like different things, so my Pop collection is quite varied. I've got Ad Icons, Marvel, DC, Music, Disney, Retro Toys, etc. If I had to pinpoint specific characters I collect, they're Harley Quinn, Stitch, and Deadpool. Those 3 characters make up a good chunk of my collection.
Of all the figures I own, I have to say my favourite is my Deadpool in his chimichanga truck. It's just funny and cool as Hell. As for Grails, I'd love to find The Swedish Chef, Sam The Eagle, Groundskeeper Willie as Freddy, and Vampire Burns (best quote from the episode: "Dad that's not his heart, that's his crotch! What can I say, I was a child of the 80s and a teen in the 90s lol.
During the pandemic, I came across Top Pops' channel, and watched the episode where he was given the keys to the store for his birthday so he could shop. I couldn't believe the selection of figures you guys had!
That's pretty much all about me. Looking forward to more 4 o'clock Fridays, content, and Virtual Garage Sales. K-Dog and Fish, keep up the great work and service you provide to your customers. #AWG4L #kdogandfish
