Fantastic Friday #6: Funko POPs!

Fantastic Friday is a semi-regular feature here on Ramblings of a Daydreamer where I showcase fantastic things - could be things I've done recently, places I've gone, a new song I like, a movie I've seen, books I've read, blog posts from around the blogosphere - anything at all!


It's been ages since I did a Fantastic Friday. In fact, the last one was at the end of May - oops! I was inspired by a post Wendy at A Cupcake and a Latte did a few weeks ago where she shared her POP collection.

I didn't have much interest in POPs when they first started coming out. I saw them here and there and thought a few were cute, but I didn't pay much attention to them until the Harry Potter ones released...and then a new obsession was born. 

I ordered Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Hagrid first...


Then saw that HMV had an exclusive Dean and Sam Winchester set, which was cheaper than buying them separately...


Then discovered there was a Robin Hood POP. Robin Hood has been one of my favourite movies for as long as I can remember, and it's hard to find memorabilia, apparently because it's one of the less popular Disney movies (which I don't understand). I had trouble finding him, but then Amazon finally got it back in stock and I had to have him!


Then when I went to visit my friend Krista in Kingston, I was telling her about the Loki POP and how I wanted to get it for her (she's obsessed with Loki - and Tom Hiddleston - and was the one who got me into superhero movies), but was having trouble finding one. We went shopping and guess what we found? Loki! So we each got one....

 

And finally I found Anna for half price at Carlton Cards one day (she's got a few little imperfections, but HALF PRICE, I'm not going to complain). Then I needed to have Elsa (for obvious reasons, plus my 5-year-old nephew was upset thinking about Anna being lonely)...


A little POP photography fun...

POPs I'd like to See:

  • Anne Shirley, Diana Berry, and Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables
  • Lorelai and Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls  (I actually had a dream about these one night; Lorelai had a coffee cup and Rory had a book - so cute!)
  • Jareth, Sarah, Hoggle, and Ludo from Labyrinth
  • Maid Marian and Little John from Robin Hood
  • Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter
 
Do you collect Funko POPs? How many do you have? Which ones are high on your wishlist? What characters do you wish they'd turn into POPs? Do you collect anything else? Let's talk here or on Twitter!

  1. Green Gables & Gilmore Girls ones would be so good!!! I can't wait to see what HP ones they come out with next. I need there to be a Luna!!

    I have the whole Beauty & the Beast set minus ball gown Belle who's a zillion dollars. I just got the Tenth doctor for my birthday. :) & I have the HP trio.

    I'm not a huge collector but when they come out for my very fave things I do really love them.

  2. I'm not a big fan of POPs. I just don't get it. I do think they're cute, though, and I love the Sam and Dean Winchester ones you have. I just don't think I'll ever be a collector.

  3. I have Groot, Vision and Michelangelo. I want to get the 12th Doctor and Loki, but keep forgetting to look. Maybe Deadpool too. Hubby is collecting Adventure Time pop figures.

  4. I have Tyrion Lannister. I'd like to get more, but I don't have a lot of room and I do have a lot of collections, so I've held off. I was surprised (and happy!) to see the Harry Potter ones. I've also seen that they've done Rocky Horror Picture Show ones that I'd like to get for my aunt.

    I think my most wanted Funko Pop! is actually Poison Ivy. I'd also like to get Robin Hood and Prince John since I love that movie too. (Crying shame it's not more popular! Why?!) I also really want Elsa.
