When I first started collecting Funko figures back in August 2015, I never realized how big it was, or how big of a deal I would take it. I’ve always seen Funko POPs! in stores, heard about how some people keep toys in general mint-in-box, but that was it. Once I started posting on Instagram and understanding the effective use of the hashtag, that was when I stumbled onto a community of Funko collectors. A #FunkoFamily.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could hang out with Iron Man and Captain America, travel through time with The Doctor in the TARDIS, or hang with the Winchester brothers and their nerd angel Castiel? Now I can in Pop! spirit with my newest custom Funko Pop. My girlfriend commissioned someone (Ryan Custom Pops) on Etsy to create a mini-version of me.
