Friends I've Converted to Funko-Trash (Funko Fridays)

Funko Fridays hosted by and

Today's Funko Friday prompt is: "Funko Friends-How many friends have you corrupted?" or, how many friends have you turned into Funko trash lol!

I don't know who i've convinced to become hardcore Funko Pop collectors. But I have noticed some friends are now starting to collect more and more, possibly due to The Tenor's (my husband) and my influence. Some of them we've met this last year a since we've been in military life. But, I know that one couple in particular from CA has started collecting them! I don't know if it's because of us, but my friend




 (who both write for

Bears Be Gaming

, which you should totally check out!).

I know they have quite a few Pops, but I know one that they really wanted, I was able to help with! At SDCC they were selling Marvel Collector Corps boxes, including, the one with the Hulkbuster! I was out on the floor, and was able to get to the SEPARATE booth (from the rest of the Funko shenanigans) for Collector Corps. I was able to get one of the last two of the Hulkbuster for them! Woot!


On the other hand, my dad is the reason I'm into Funko Pops! He bought my first one which was Boo Berry from General Mills' Halloween cereals! It was an SDCC exclusive and it's one of my most treasured POP's!

Are you into Funko? Who, or, what particular Pop got you into them? 

Let me know as I


to hear people's Pop stories!

Favorite POP!/Funko Vinyls (and Future Faves)

This Fandom Friday post is brought to by the letter N, for (The) Nerdy Girlie, and the letter S for Super Space Chick. And by readers like you

Today', Friday's Fandom Friday (now Monday for this week lol) features my favorite Funko POPs/vinyl figures. Also, at the end of the list, I have featured my top five Future Faves for 2015's release anouncements!

1). Funko x Hikari Batman
Not TECHNICALLY a POP figure, however, this is a Funko/Hikari vinyl Batman was a prize I won from Funko's instagram contest, and--while my picture doesn't do him justice at all, I'm so stoked to have him! (Seriously, the Hikari vinyls are awesome! I would highly suggest them).

2). Boo Berry

One of my earliest POP! figures, Boo, along with Franken-Berry, and, Count Chocula had shiny little POP!'s at SDCC 2011! I wanted all of them, but Boo Berry was MUST get! I LOVE marchmallow cereal...well, at least General Mills. However, I no longer buy them. But I have a nonsensical soft-spot for these cereal's little mascots. Especially the Halloween ones!

3). Donatello

My favorite Ninja turtle (and technically, the most ninja as purple is what faded black turns to heehee) was a must get! We got all four of the renaissance artists brothers, but Don is my favorite!

4). O-Ren Ishii
One of my favorite action movies is Kill Bill v. 1, and O-Ren is my favorite character in the movie! I had been hunting for her, and, Go-Go Yubari's POP!s for a while now, and finally found them both here in Florida!

5). Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West)
So I know this is the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz...but I call her Elphaba as she named this in one of my favorite musicals: Wicked! While I didn't care for the book Wicked is (loosely) based on, the score, the songs, all of it...I love! And she's shiny green!

For my favorite up-coming POP!s here are my top five Future Faves:
1). Sailor Moon (I squee-ed out loud when I read this!)
2). Doctor Who (which was a pleasant surprise, as I heard from a trusted source that BBC and Funko were in talks, as Titan was their vinyl toy maker. However, I prefer Funko...and theirs are cuter).
3). Bravest Warrior's CATBUG!!!!
4). Bleach!!!
5). Hanna Barbera waves 1 & 2 (I love the classic H&B cartoons, and am especially excited for Secret Squirrel, and Penelope Pitstop).

What are your favorite POP! or vinyl figures that you own?
