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.
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.

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.
