Is this the forum where a 36 year old married man can openly admit to having a massive funko pop collection? I love Marvel and Star Wars pops. I have built shelves in my house to display them. Initially I started collecting them with my daughter. She soon lost interest but I didn't. Pops are second only to comics. I am not so patiently waiting for the rest of the Valiant pops to be released.

Opened or unopened?

A co-worker loves Funko Pops and opens them.

It's unnerving.

I work with a young woman, early 20s or so, and her dad is a Funko pop collector. I'd guess he is probably mid-40s?

She gave me a C3PO for Christmas. Even though I am a proud heretic in the church of Star Wars, I appreciated the thought.

Mostly out of box. I have my rare or favorite ones in hard cases. I save all the boxes and my daughter built a wall out of the boxes. The only bad part is they take up a lot of space. It is starting to wear thin on the wife. 300+ pops take over a whole room where 300 comics fill a long box.

I hate these things, although I completely understand their appeal and how they can turn into a gigantic collection. Although, I do like that if Mighty Muggz had to have a logical evolution, then it's that whoever manufactures the Pops went smaller and more compact with them.

Given their weird symmetry, I also understand why people would keep them in the box. The box gives them defined, stackable edges and let's face it - there isn't really much point to taking them out anyway.

I do not have a single POP! in my figure collection- and on that, here's a 40 yo who collects Batman action figures like a 10 yo kid with unlimited budget, or almost. :lol: But I don't own any because they are so damn cute, and it's one of those cases I would really start collecting and chasing past figures. I don't need that, lol.
I love the CWverse ones, the Speedy one is *SQUEE* adorable. And the SA jungle Batman was awesome, but my fav series so far is the B:TAS one. I admit, if I wasn't collecting the DC collectibles line in its entirety, I would buy the whole series in a beat. The Clayface and Man-Bat are amazing.
