Funko Friday: How many Funkos do you own?

funko friday, funko fridays, funko, funko pop, depepi,

This week I have a terrifying Funko Friday: how many Funkos do you own? This is a question that I don’t want to answer. The reason? I don’t want anyone to tell me that I already bought too many Funkos. I’m a collector, so I don’t think I will stop buying these lovely figurines anytime soon. But why? What makes collectors keep on buying?

I’m a picky Funko collector: I don’t buy all the Pops that are out there. I just buy the ones that tune with me and from the fandoms that I love. It seems that I’m an eclectic collector. (It goes with my personality. I also have a beautiful eclectic Tarot collection).

As of the moment of writing this post, I own 100+ Pops. Candida asked how many Pops I owned in a comment on my Facebook page. And so, I had to count them. This is how I discovered that I had crossed the 100 line. It might sound stupid, but passing big numbers make things different. It’s like stating to the world that you are brilliant, or amazingly bad. It’s also a number that allows your family and friends to tell you: haven’t you got enough?

But when is it enough for a collector? I guess the answer is: never. Or, alternatively, as long as space allows for my hobby of collecting Pops. I know that I’m going to dismiss these comments and keep on collecting till my space runs out.

Oh! I forgot! I’m one of those appalling collectors who takes out the Pops from their boxes! (Unless is an extra copy that I have as safe keeping…)

So, what about you? How many Pops do you own?

    Just on my desk at work I have 12, and I’m not even sure how many I have at home! I know it’s too many though LOL

    • Haha! Well, that’s why I didn’t want to count them… but I did LOL

  • Peeks head from around corner…I “own” 3 ….and that’s only because they came in my 1Up monthly boxes. Haha. Funkos are cute but I refuse to get addicted. I have no where to keep them in my tiny place right now. 🙂

    • xDDDDD That’s cool! I can only say that I can’t resist them LOL They’re just too cute!

    Awesome! I’m picky too because I don’t buy every single one.

    • We’re twins! 🙂 Yeah, I can’t just get all of them, even if I love the fandom… –; I might not like that Pop in particular… It jus happens to me a lot. I love the character, but then I see the Pop and I don’t like it. So, I don’t buy it.

    Wow that’s a lot of Pops but lots of fun to have so many 🙂 I only have 9 haha

    • I started with a humble collection and suddenly I have tons of them! O.o It doesn’t look like so because I’ve arranged them with books… but… somehow I think I overdid myself, and at the same time I say “naaaay” 😉

    We are in the 60s now, though I haven’t recently counted for an exact number. I’m sure that’ll go up after Christmas…we always have POPs on our list! 😀

    • OMG! Xmas! I know I’m going to have many of them for Xmas! xDDDDD Yay! (I won’t count the Pops, though… )
