What do you do when you like something? I make collections. I am currently growing my Funko Pop™ collection. Funko Pops are vinyl figurines with large heads and tiny bodies. Sometimes they come with bobbleheads, the type that wiggle and move, attached by a spring. They even make extra-large sized Funko Pops, but these are rare.
The first and only three I have for my collection are Marceline, Groot, and the absent-on-picture-day Murloc from World of Warcraft. Marceline is a demon vampire from Adventure Time – a cartoon on Cartoon Network. The Marceline figure comes with her guitar and her large straw hat. Groot is a tree creature with unknown origins from The Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel universe. This Groot figure has a bobblehead and his left-hand glows green in the dark. It doesn’t glow well, but it is still cool. A few friends from my family’s collection joined the photoshoot.
I want to be able to collect all the Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) and World of Warcraft (WoW) Funko Pops. FNAF is a series of jump scare games on Steam I play on my computer. I have seen so many people with shelves full of these characters and I would love to have my own because I really enjoy the games.
WoW is a game I have been playing for a very long time now, but I am very slow with leveling. Still, I enjoy it. I have a murloc Funko Pop that my parents bought me for a birthday a few years back. Since then I have also gotten a murloc plushie and I have grown a love for these tiny fish-creatures with feet. murloc armies are awesome and one day, I will have my own!
I am also interested in making my own figurines inspired by the Funko Pops. I’ve seen lots of people customize their pops and I think it is an awesome thing to do, but one day, I want to build my own figures from scratch. I tried to work on a design in wood, but it was a failure. I’ll keep trying.
I want to build this collection because I love having them to show off. When I see other people’s collections, I get excited. I think it would be awesome to have a wall of my own.
What collections are you building?
