Funatic of the Week: Tanner Hedges!

What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?

I collect Pop!s for the most part but also some Dorbz, Mystery Minis, Pint Size Heroes, Spastik Plastik, Hikari, a little bit of everything. I don’t know an exact number but I’d guess somewhere between 400-500 pieces.

How long have you been a collector?

I’ve been a collector for as long as I can remember. I didn’t discover and start collecting Funko until about 4 years ago when I began getting really into Star Wars.


What are your favorite fandoms?

My favorite fandoms are Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, Ghostbusters, Hanna Barbera, and most recently Overwatch.

What was your first Funko item?

My first Funko item was the Darth Vader Pop! I picked up from GameStop. At that time I didn’t care about the box and I remember literally ripping right into it.

What is your favorite Funko piece in your collection?

That’s a tough question but I’m going to go with the USA McCree Pop! that just came out because I’ve been addicted to Overwatch since its release. McCree is my favorite and also most played character with his American skin being my favorite skin in the game.



Tell us your favorite Funko story!

My favorite Funko story is when I attended Funko Fright Night and my trip there. I was lucky enough to go to the event with my best friend who flew in to Florida from Maryland and then we flew out to California together. It was such an amazing night. I got to meet Funatics from the boards that I had never met, got to meet Brian Mariotti and have him sign my Lil Gruesome Pop!, got to see some cool performances, and left with some awesome Funko swag on top of all that. It was a night I’ll never forget.
