Pop Shots! with…@Driftedwires

Todays Funko Pop collector is a good friend of mine. Not only did I egg her on with the collecting but she’s also bypassed me (with regards to the number of Pops she owns) AND has legitimately one of the best Deadpool Pop collections I’ve ever seen! So without further ado, let’s have a chat with our Jenny Rice!

Name Jen Rice

How long have you been a collector? I’ve been collecting since January this year so pretty new to it all.

How many Pops! are in your collection? I currently have 35 pops in my collection, 20 of which are Deadpool ones!

Who/what was the first Pop! you ever bought? My first pop was The Undertaker (WWE) my other half bought it for me, he started this addiction!

Which is your favorite Pop! in your collection? My favorite pop is Deadpool chef (I happen to be a head chef, so it covers both my passions) Closely followed by my x-files collection.

What is the most money you have ever spent on one Pop? £19.99 on the aforementioned Deadpool Chef.

What do you think it is about Pops! that make them so addictive? I have quite an addictive personality as it is, so mix that with cute Funko Pops and I don’t know when this will stop!

And finally…keep it in or take it out and play with it? So far I’m definitely a keep it in the box person. Can’t see that changing anytime soon.

Pop Shots! With…@Jessicka421

Today is the turn of our first female collector! (and one from across the pond too!) So let’s dive straight in and meet @Jessicka421

Name Jessicka

How long have you been a collector? I’ve recently started into serious collecting, before that, I would receive pops from Lootcrate or would buy them solely based on the character I was into at that time.

How many Pops! are in your collection? According to poppriceguide.com where I keep track of all my pops, I currently own 81 pops.

Who/what was the first Pop! you ever bought? Gah! this is truly hard to answer, but I believe it was the X-Force Deadpool pop.

Which is your favorite Pop! in your collection? My favorite would have to be my glow in the dark Cthulhu. He is the perfect amount of pint-sized adorable. Plus he has the power to haunt your dreams and lose your sanity!

What is the most money you have ever spent on one Pop? About $20 is probably the most. Plus tax. I am however seriously considering dropping $150 on Nerd Cthulhu…

What do you think it is about Pops! that make them so addictive? I think it’s that they incorporate a plethora of interests and characters from pop culture we love so much. I love looking at my pops because they include small intricate and awesome detail. It’s so exciting to find out what little gadgets upcoming pops will have next. I read that one reader describing pops as “visual crack.” I also think pops can be described as “vinyl crack” because the smell of a brand new pop is truly satisfying..mmm….vinyl. (props to my good pop hunting buddy sir_meshuggala @instagram for the “vinyl crack” reference)

Where can people find you (on social media?) You can find me on Twitter here! and Human_Spice_Latte on Instagram.

Pop Shots! With…@Renaldz_

This week is the turn of more Twitter fam. It’s @Renaldz_

Name Scott

How long have you been a collector? On and off for around 4 years, but upped my game the last year or so.

How many Pops! are in your collection? 21

Who/what was the first Pop! you ever bought? The first Pop I ever bought was Edward from Assassins Creed Black Flag. Still got him now and he’s vaulted! which was a nice surprise.

Which is your favorite Pop! in your collection? This is a close one between my Classic Batman Batmobile and my Demogorgon chase! Will have to go with the Demogorgon as it’s a chase.

What is the most money you have ever spent on one Pop? It would likely be £15 on my ECCC Captain America. The Batmobile was part of a trade so I won’t count that.

What do you think it is about Pops! that make them so addictive? It has to be the sheer volume of different types. There is something for everyone and hunting for elusive exclusives is an addiction in itself!

Where can people find you (on social media?) You can find me on Twitter here, but I don’t use anything else. I have tried YouTube but I don’t have the time or money to build quality content!

And finally…keep it in its box? Or take it out and play with it? Kept in the box 100%. Not only are the pops amazing but so is the box art too!

This week is the turn of another Twitter brother; @Ekewaka11

Name Lord Edward Underhill 3rd

How long have you been a collector? 3 years… I think.

How many Pops! are in your collection? 90. Thought it’d be less than that in all fairness.

Who/what was the first Pop! you ever bought? I think it was like 4 different pops! Sam & Dean from Supernatural, Thor, and Gizmo! Looking back on it, the inner pop! Virgins myself & Ash were at the time really did show. They had SO many exclusives, as well and an invisible Bilbo, but we passed on them all because we didn’t know better! Absolute nightmare.

Which is your favorite Pop! in your collection? The exclusive Scooby-Doo ‘creeper’. I didn’t think I’d love it as much as I would, however, I’m such a big Scooby fan. As soon as I get Scooby Dum it’ll become my new favorite… That pop looks straight up next level Gangsta, Scooby PIMP Dum.!

What is the most money you have ever spent on one Pop? On one Pop!, normal price really. The exclusives which I ordered from popcultcha ended up becoming super expensive. Worth it mind! Probably £32(double pack) to give you some sort of answer.

What do you think it is about Pops! that make them so addictive? The design, and then to fit the design with pretty much anything is genius. For example, I didn’t really watch DBZ when I was a kid, however, they have the nicest pops in my opinion. They’re like visual crack.

Where can people find you (on social media?) Instagram – EddyJUnderhill. Twitter – Ekewaka11

And finally…keep it in its box? or take it out and play with it? Keep it in the box all day every day. There’s actually a rumor that if you take them out the box you get a phone call which states that you’ll die in 7 days. So I wouldn’t risk it.
