Over to you, Randy!

 

What was your first Funko Pop! and when / how did you get it?

Actually my first three Funko Pop!s were Captain Spaulding, Pennywise and Hannibal Lecter. I bought all three at Hot Topic when they first came out in 2014.

 

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.

 

Thanks, Randy!
