Hello fellow collectors! I started this to talk about Funko stuff. There is one over in the TMNT part of the forums but that's just TMNT and not anything else. This is mostly for Pop, but you can talk about other Funko products (like Wacky Wobblers or Mystery Minis) here as well.
I just started collecting Pop. They just have so many great lines like Ghostbusters, TMNT, BTTF, Marvel, Disney, even Sharknado! :lol: I just picked up burnt Stay Puft today. He's really awesome, and at 6" he TOWERS over the other Pops. Plus the burnt markings are really well done.
Do any of you collect Funko collectibles?

I collect a lot of their Disney stuff. I have a few of the POP! figures...Oswald is my favorite. I also have a few of the first series of the Disney Mystery Minis, still looking for the second series. As for things I'm looking forward to/plan on buying: Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Frozen POP! figures.

The only Funko stuff I buy are their new 6 inch "Legacy" action figures.

I have all of the Game of Thrones figures including the Walgreens exclusive Tyrion. Looking forward to wave 2.

I'm not a fan of their smaller vinyl stylized ones though.

not so big on the pop line, but their Legacy looks very promising, I have John Snow, Tyrion and Eddard Stark from their GoT line, I can't wait for their MtG figures.

Am I the only one who hates the POP line? It's all "lolsonerdy" stuff that casuals buy. I mean, seriously, they did a TBBT line.

I know some guys that collect the pops, and they are far from casual toy collectors.

lots of people don't care for them... including me.

but if you like Game of Thrones their Legacy Figures are cool.

Take a look at these pics of wave 1. You can get them nicely discounted on amazon. Wave 2 is hitting this fall.

So you're big into the Minis, huh? I've never bought any but I might pick up a few TMNT ones.
I understand the want for Frozen Pops, I have Elsa and she's pretty cool. (pun intended.) the "frozen heart" Anna SDCC exclusive is one that I really like. A lot of Frozen fans were actually mad at Funko that they made her. :lol:

Who ya callin a casual? :P
I mean, I get what you're saying about the "lolnerdy" stuff, but some things they do like BTTF rarely get merch. Plus you can get all this other stuff in the same scale which is hard with other stuff like 6" Marvel Legends and 6.25" TMNT Classics. (Playmates, you don't know what scale is. Stop trying.) Of course you have to like the Pop style as well which some don't care for.
I totally get your hatred for TBBT, though. I really despise that show. Not to offend any fans of it, but it is not for me.

If you like BTTF check out the Lego set they made recently. It's awesome!

The Kenner styled ReAction figures look kinda cool, and a lot of varied brands.

I, only, have the hip hop artists pop figures. Run, DMC, Jam Master Jay, 2pac, Biggie, and Public Enemy. I think, Jam Master Jay is my, only, retired Pop figure.

I know, I got that set when it came out. It's really great. I modded the hood so it looks more accurate and the inside to fit both Doc and Marty.

I liked the BTTF LEGO set so much I bought two. Actually, ideally I'd have 3 so I can build all 3 versions at the same time.

Anyway, if you liked that BTTF set you should get the new Ghostbusters set too!

.....that was another day one purchase...it's probably my favorite set of 2014. Great minifigs as well. Funny how this kinda turned into the Lego thread. :P

Well I'm an avid collector it allows me a large variety of different things I like at an affordable level (sometimes) :)

I have about 100 of them including some very rare ones
