When it comes to collecting Funko Pop!s, it’s the flocked figures that make Randy Kubek feel warm and fuzzy.

Over to you, Randy!
What was your first Funko Pop! and when / how did you get it?
What got you hooked?
When I bought my first ones I thought they were cool and was a fan of the character Captain Spaulding in The Devil’s Rejects. Then I just started collecting any that I thought were cool looking.
How big would you estimate your collection is?
If I had to guess I’d say around 600 total Funko Pop!s. At one point I probably had over 1,000.
What makes Flocked Pop!s the best?
I’m not going to say flocked Pop!s are the best, they are something I found interesting and sort of a “special edition” of other Pop!s.
How many Flocked Pop!s do you own?
Currently I own 249 flocked Pop!s which eight of those are custom. I also have one on the way.
What’s your favorite Flocked Pop!?
It’s hard to choose a favorite flocked Pop! but if I had to I’d say Ralphie in the Bunny Suit.
What’s your most valuable Flocked Pop!?
2011 San Diego Comic Con flocked Chewbacca.
What’s a Flocked Pop! that your collection is missing?
If my calculations are correct I am only missing five flocked Pop!s to own all of them that have been made. But they are 18-inch Groot, Gizmo VHS Cover, Niffler and both Baby Milo prototype flocked Pop!s.
What do you consider your grail and do you own it?
A major grail for me is Garruk Wildspeaker PAX exclusive. I do own it and it took a few years to find one in near mint condition. My other grails would be the Baby Milo flocked Pop!s and currently looking for them.
Why collect Funko?
I have had many different hobbies, including collecting sports cards, car audio and off roading. Collecting Funko Pop!s I am able to collect characters I find interesting and at some point there would be a return on them if I were to sell them. I chose to concentrate on flocked Pop!s because you see a lot of people collect different genres like Disney, DC, and Marvel just to make a few.
