This post has been planned for a few months, but for whatever mysterious reason it took some time. Nevertheless I finally managed to prepare this post for you. I have a moderate of Funko Pop Figurines, I’d say, it’s more than the I like the Darth Vader on so I got it but it’s far from the I get every single Special Edition, their is nothing wrng with either, it’s just the way I collect them. I’ll write a bit about my “story” and so on while presenting them. To guide me through all I want to mention I included a few bullet points from various tags, especially this one.
The First One
I guess the Original Disney Alice, this little cutie was what started the collection, and I think Marty McFly was Number Two, however could have been vice-versa. From than on I do not really know which one came next, I mean, I know some are newer than others, but apart from that it blended together, but I got a lot of them very close to each other, so that might be the reason. I think I came in contact with the figurines 2015 (maybe 2014?) due to … bookstagram/booktube? I have no clue whatsoever, but I know that I liked watching collection videos quite a bit during the time I bought a lot (of course those things influence each other).
The Newest One
Leia, I know, I know, she should have been one of my first, but I only got her with a few related things after Carrie Fisher’s passing. She was on the list FOREVER and I think she is just so cute.
The Most Beautiful/Favourite One
Let me start this of with a confession, fasten your seatbelt, collectors, because I don’t keep the boxes. I know cardinal sin in Funko Collecting Circles, but I do not have unlimited space and I really only get them for decoration reasons and of characters I adore, I don’t plan on selling them anytime soon and if I would I don’t mind getting just a few bucks, since I on’t spend that much on them (aside from Poe without the Helmet, he was expensive).
Well, I only get ones I find cute, so I basically love all of them, nevertheless I think my Chrome C-3PO with the red arm is fantastically beautiful. The Queen is pretty as well, however that is mainly the merit of Tim Burton and his team. Both Ferris and Mia Wallace just capture the personalities. Castiel, Crimson Peak’s Edith and the young Cat Woman are really detailed and cute. Clark Griswold who is with the Christmas stuff, so I do not have a picture) is a fantastic funko as well with his little eggnog mug. Both Moriarty’s are fabulous as are Leia and Poe – but you know all those sentimentalities for the characters aside I would say Edith, King Moriarty and C-3PO. Though I can say which one is of the lowest quality – Merida, her hair has two pieces added to the front and it’s so weird (similar with Charlie, why isn’t she matte?).
As mentioned above the last one I got was in late December, so even though I want a few Funkos I don’t really want them SOOOO badly that I have to get them asap. Nevertheless I do have some I’ve wanted for more than a year. Irene Adler from Sherlock is one of my favourite characters of the show, so she’s a must, then my favourite Doctor, Eleven, and Han Solo. Of course I also finally need a Cheshire Cat, probably the baby one, equally cute is the Ewok Wicket. From the Disney ones I only want Mulan and Mushu & Cricket, even though I think the Belle ones of the castle inhabitants are beautiful. Also beautiful is Jane from Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, she looks so fierce. And last but not least Ezio from Assassin’s Creed.
I add and remove Mary Poppins from the list all the time, I have no idea why, because I actually really like her. Then, I’m also thinking about the Golden Girls and Clueless. If the Hannibal ones of Will Graham would be more accurate, I’d like those too.
Yet To Be Created
Jurassic Park. No doubt. Pushing Daisies, too, and classic movies like Dirty Dancing. Nygma from Gothan would be pretty cool as would Pretty in Pink’s Iona. Penny Dreadful and Miss Fisher would make for fancy ones, too. But Ellie Sattler and the Pushing Daisies characters are most important (thouggh the latter is soooo unlikely).
I really love the Star Wars ones, even though they have the bobble head, almost all of them look fantastic and beautifully crafted. There are so many of them and I just all the ideas (also, my dad owns Darth and the Yoda Spirit, I just forgot to take pics). However the Wonderland ones are pretty cute, too.
Unless I’m unable to count: 25 + the 3 little villian ladies.
Do you own funkos? What do you think of them and if you plan on getting new ones which ones?
