Funko Pop

I figured this would make for a good thread.
Do any of you guys own Funko Pop figurines?
I'm planning on buying a Kylo Ren Funko.
What about you guys?

I think they are kind of creepy figures. But I do own an 11th doctor Pop

I have one of Leo that I only display because it was a gift (& my favorite turtle), but I kinda hate these things. Funko makes some other cool stuff, I support the company in general, just not Pop! I find the aesthetic to be unspired & lacking, the huge head gimmick is tiresome, I don't feel that the black eyes work to the benefit of characters who don't otherwise have them. The only thing that's really cool is how many licenses they've got, obscure & foreign ones, to boot. But that only makes me more frustrated that some of those series' only or 'quality' merch will be these pieces...

They are cute. I have Batman and Joker as Mez-itz. Not really something I imagine myself spending too much money on.

There is no 13th doctor Pop anything you must be talking about Capaldi who is the 12th doctor.

I have way too many of these things. Collecting them is as addicting as crack.

I take them to work but now I have too many for my cube.

Here is an old pic of my cube at work.

That looks good Zak. I could imagine collecting them to create a display like that.

Ive been collecting these now for just about two year. Most of my collection is in storage right now while I'm stationed in Korea but this is the small amount that I do have with me here.

I'm always on the fence about these. I can't decide if I truly like them or not. I'm more of a bobble head guy I guess.

They're ok. I've got a Superman and unless I find a Deathstroke or something, I probably won't ever buy another.

Well they represent either one of two things 1) pop culture (hence the name POP) and 2) stuff that's trending or popular now

I recently started a collection of these as well with the first being a Captain America bobble head from the Civil War line. Probably started late on collecting them but oh well lol.
