Pops! Pops! and more Pops!

I am going to start off this post by telling everyone that they should never ever, under any circumstance, for any reason ever buy a Funko Pop! Vinyl.

Alright now that we have that public service announcement out of the way I can now tell you why you should not buy them.

First Reason:

Your life will become forever awesome

Second Reason: They look amazing all over the house

Except the kitchen. Gentleman do not mess with the kitchen.  Almost lost my life over a salt and pepper shaker that did not fit the theme.  Cannot image what would happen if a Pop! appeared in there.

Third Reason: You will forever become imprisoned in finding your favorite ones


My Pop! hunting experience began a couple years ago.  I found one on sale at Hot Topic for like $7.  It was Biker Scout #38. This guy sat all by himself on my dresser for a few months.  Then all hell broke loose.  In less than a year from the date of purchase of my first Pop! I accumulated had over 50 of them.

Why are these things so addicting!  Well the answer lies in the heart of Funko’s success.  Unlike other collectables such as the Beanie Baby craze of the 90’s, Funko makes figures from everyone’s favorites.  These favorites could be from childhood cartoon shows, movies, or even video games.

Even if you are not the biggest geek in the world you can still find a Funko Pop! for you.  There are even NFL ones for crying out loud!

For me it’s the Star Wars Pops!. About half my collection are from this genre, and I love every one of them.

So there is run down on why you should not buy these darn things.  Hopefully I did my job and convinced you!

Happy Hunting ?
