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)

Pop Shots! With…@LoreAchiever

This week is the turn of fellow Twitter brother @LoreAchiever

Name Luke!

How long have you been a collector? Just under three years.

How many Pops! are in your collection? It was roughly just under 50. After some selling and narrowing down (of what I collect) it now stands at 36.

Who/what was the first Pop! you ever bought? I’m pretty sure I picked up World of Warcraft Thrall (#31) Diablo 3 Tyrael (#17) and Starcraft 2 Jim Raynor (#19) all at the same time. I was really into Blizzard games at the time, and figured I’d show that appreciation in Pop! form. I’ve since sold Tyrael and Raynor, but Thrall is still in my collection. WoW will always have a special place in my heart.

Which is your favorite Pop! in your collection? This is super hard to choose! I’ve recently tried to narrow my collection down to just Games, Comics and Movies, so i guess it would have to be the newly released ECCC Exclusive Captain America (#219) It’s so detailed and a real unique piece. The MCC Exclusive Leaping Deadpool would definitely be a close second, just because of the pose. Again, so unique to the rest of the releases.

What is the most money you have ever spent on one Pop? I really loves Pops! but I have a sensible and limited budget. So £35-£40 is the most I’ve ever spent so far, and I only consider going up to that price if it is a stickered exclusive.

What do you think it is about Pops! that make them so addictive? I love to surround myself with my passions and interests, so when I cam across Pops! I knew I had to start collecting them, because they were so varied. One thing lead to another and I now own more than I ever imagined.

Where can people find you (on social media?) Subscribe to my YouTube channel here and follow me on Twitter here.

And finally…keep it in its box? or take it out and play with it? I used to be an out of box collector, but I’ve succumbed to the ‘in box’ collector lifestle. Now when I make a purchase it gets put straight into a protective sleeve, and is stacked with the rest of my collection.
