Funko Wishlist & Collection Part 2

One of my new-to-me fandoms in 2020 has been Star Wars. Star Wars has always been a fandom I’ve really admired, but had never really tried getting into… until my family got Disney+ and my mom and I decided to watch the original trilogy on Christmas. Since then, I’ve completed the original and prequel trilogies and The Mandalorian, and I have started the new sequel trilogy- all I have left is The Rise of Skywalker. That being said, I’ve been looking into Star Wars merch, which of course includes Funko Pops!

IMG_4168As I’m writing this post, I just realized that I haven’t really done any sort of Funko collection update or wishlist since 2018! Since then, I’ve only added four new Funkos: the 2018 San Diego Exclusive Nearly Headless Nick, Luna Lovegood with her Gryffindor Hat, Order of the Phoenix Harry Potter (With Prophecy) and Herbology Hermione Granger (holding the mandrake). This Luna Lovegood was on my original wishlist and was a harder find – I think Barnes and Noble finally had it online in stock about two years ago and I knew it would be one of my few chances at getting it. I had also always wanted a Hermione Granger for my collection and the mandrake version was just so cute to pass up!

While I’d still like to add some of the Funko Pops from my original wishlist to my collection, here are a few more that I would love to grace my bookshelves.

Luke Skywalker and Yoda (Star Wars) – Funko is releasing more Star Wars Funkos for The Mandalorian and for the 40th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back. I know I want some sort of Yoda inspired Funko for my collection and I really love this one of him and Luke.

Han Solo (Star Wars) – The original Star Wars Funkos are almost impossible to find other than eBay. I’m actually not too crazy about the originals because they were based on Funko’s old design. Han Solo is my favorite character from the original trilogy. I would consider adding the original Han Solo to my collection (for a reasonable price), but I also do like the Solo version of him.Read More »

Give Me ALL the Pops: My Funko Wishlist

If I could only choose one type of bookshelf companion, it’d have to be Funko Pop!s. I’ve been collecting Funkos for the past few years, and even with a collection of 15 Pop!s and two other pieces of merch (both Harry Potter-inspired of course), I feel like I have a lot of room to grow. Even though I’m running out of room for my books. Inspired by Making Fun: The Story of Funko on Netflix, today I’ll be talking about the Funkos I’d love to add to my collection.

Wishlist:

Luna Lovegood With Gryffindor Hat- I feel like I’ve mentioned my desire for this Funko so many times that I just need to buy it before she’s impossible to find!

Chuckie Finster- Rugrats was easily my favorite TV show as a kid, and my nostalgia is craving a Chuckie Finster Funko. Plus he’s so cute!

Riverdale Archie Andrews- While I do enjoy Riverdale to a certain extent, I wouldn’t mind adding Archie to my collection again out of nostalgia. I grew up reading the Archie comics. Whenever I would take the train home from the city, my parents would let me pick up a new issue from Hudson News.

Prisoner of Azkaban Hermione Granger – While Harry Potter makes up most of my collection, I still have yet to pick a Hermione. I’d love to pick up Prisoner of Azkaban Hermione for her time-turner.

Wonder Woman With Her Cloak- Don’t mind me as I collect all of the Wonder Woman Funkos while waiting for Wonder Woman 1984.

Hard Finds:

Rachel Green and Chandler Bing from Friends I’d love to collect all of the Friends Funkos, but I especially want Rachel and Chandler since they’re my two favorite characters. Based off of how insanely popular Friends continues to be, I think Funko would benefit from doing a second series. Friends Funkos are still available to buy from a few smaller retailers or second hand, but I’ve seen them priced anywhere from $30-$250. In some cases, that’s just for one figure!

Rory Gilmore- I feel like the Girlmore Girls Funkos recently came out (it was 2016), but they’re already so hard to find?? I’m not even the biggest Gilmore Girls fan, but I’d love to have a Rory, especially for bookstagram.

Please Make These Now:

Parks & Recreation Series 2- I remember running through my house and telling everyone when the Parks & Rec Series 1 Pop!s were announced last year. After collecting 5 Funkos from the first series, I’m more than ready for a new set. Give me Ann Perkins, Ben Wyatt, Chris Trager, Donna Regale, and Jerry/Terry/Gerry please! I’d also love a Leslie in her wedding dress, Duke Silver, and a Cones of Dunshire-inspired Ben. But please no more Lil’ Sebastian (he’s the only one outside of the Hot Topic Exclusive Jean-Ralphio & Tom that I haven’t picked up).

Brooklyn Nine-NineNow that B99 Season 6 is officially a go, can we please get some Nine-Nine Pop!s?? I need a mini Jake and Rosa in my life on my shelves.

Full House- Between Fuller House and the fact that Full House is a much-loved sitcom, I could so see Full House Funkos. I would of course need all three Tanner girls. Honestly, I think I might email Funko about Full House and Brooklyn Nine-Nine! Your girl is serious about her Pops if you couldn’t tell.
