General Geekery | Funko Pop! Vinyl Bobbleheads

Another day, another series... well the start of one anyway.

My little corner of the internet is meant to be all about sharing my many loves in life, so I feel it would be remiss of me if I didn't talk about my array of geeky obsessions, hence General Geekery!  I don't imagine this will become a hugely regular series, but I'll be certain to post whenever I have something pressing to share.

So first up for General Geekery, allow me to introduce you to my latest prized possessions, my Funko Pop! Vinyl Bobbleheads.  Is it seen as a little bit weird for a 30-something woman to have a collection of plastic toys?  Without a doubt.  But do I care?  Hell no!

Funko have been around, making cool little collectables since 1998, but I only became aware of them a year or 2 ago when I started seeing them in the window of my local comic book shop.  Pretty soon I had a wish list as long as my arm, but I didn't actually end up owning any of the bobbleheads until really recently.  My very awesome friend Holly knew how much I wanted a Funko Pop! Vinyl Bobblehead of my very own and after my house was burgled and I was in serious need of cheering up, she surprised me with a Dancing Groot!

You can see from the photos below that my collection has grown a bit since then and now includes Thor, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora and the Hulk to keep Dancing Groot company.

This post kind of makes it look like it, but I'm really not biased towards Marvel.  Funko make loads of different figures, and my wish list includes lots of them, including, but definitely not limited to characters from Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural.

If the ones I've mentioned aren't your thing, Funko are also licensed to produce a range of pop culture collectables featuring favourite characters from TV, Films, and Games including Marvel, DC, Hasbro, Disney, Sanrio... the list goes on!

If you're interested, you can see the whole range of Funko Collectables here and check out their Twitter where they're always tweeting about fun, geeky shenanigans.

Think Funko Pop! Vinyl Bobbleheads are the coolest (like I do) and want some for yourself?  Check out your local comic book shop or if you don’t fancy leaving the house (I often don’t) you can find a whole host of them on Amazon!

Do you have any geeky collections you’d like to share?  Or maybe have some Funko figures of your own?  I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Wow, Groot is so cute! I saw some of these, I think it must have been the MCM Convention a couple of years ago and was tempted to buy one. I'm a fellow geek haha but I mainly collect Nendoroids, I just have a huge weakness for cute, adorable figures!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog as well :)
