Confession time. This post has been in my mind to write for a little while, but one thing held me back from beginning to put it together – will anyone care?
Then I realised, it doesn’t matter. I love my Funko Pop Vinyl collection, and that’s what matters.
These little guys are some of the very few things in my room that define the geekier side of my personality (along with the growing collection of graphic novels…), and I would have a lot more of them if I had the room for them! There’s already a few that I’ve got my eye on to add to my collection, but let’s take a look at who I’ve got already, shall we?
The eagle-eyed amongst you might notice that I have three Pop Vinyl’s from Guardians Of The Galaxy. What can I say? I love the film, and how can you not have a soft spot for Starlord, Rocket Raccoon and Groot?
Also featured in my collection is Finn from Adventure Time who I got in a My Geek Box subscription box, Heisenberg from Breaking Bad (best show ever), Daryl from The Walking Dead and Ghost from Game Of Thrones.
What I love about Funko’s figurines are not just how adorable they are, but how (most of the time) they really capture the essence of the character. It’s not important that they look identical to the actual character a la Hot Toys (which are awesome but so pricey).
I really want to add some more The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones characters to the collection (namely Rick Grimes from the former, and Arya Stark from the latter), but as soon as I walk into Forbidden Planet in Southampton that list quickly grows to a lot more! It’s a dangerous addiction…
Do you own any Funko figures? Or what other memorabilia do you collect from your favourite films and TV shows?
