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.
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
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.
