With more than two decades of collecting under his belt, hobbyDB member chadwill is beginning to run out of space for it all!
For this hobbyDB member of six years, it was love at first sight with the confluence of Funko and the television series “Supernatural.”
Today, chadwill takes us on a tour of his super collection as part of our latest Collector Showcase! Check out the chadwill hobbyDB Showcase here!
Over to you, chadwill!!
I started collecting in 2000. Mainly Star Wars and Marvel Legends. I collected mostly variants and exclusive Star Wars figures and the same with Marvel Legends Toybiz line. I slowed down collecting for a little bit and one day I walk into Hot Topic and see my favorite television shows, Supernatural, characters and that’s how I started collecting Funko’s.
I have almost all of the Supernatural characters. The rest of my Funko’s are all exclusive, limited, numbered or convention figures. All of them have an exclusive sticker of some type. My collection consists of 1,958 Funko Pop!s, Minis, Pint Size, Soda’s and a few Dorbz.
My Funkos are currently valued at a little over $35,000 according to hobbyDB. I have an entire room that I’m in the process of displaying my collection. ALL my figures are unopened in-box. I don’t collect out-of-box. I buy protectors for all my figures and have them currently displayed in my room, my closet and the spare bedroom that I’m working on where everything will eventually go. I’m in need of shelving, I have many high dollar figures that deserve a glass case.
My favorite figures are from the Supernatural line. Like I said before, I have every Supernatural Pop! and Mini Funko has made, including the exclusive Mini of Dean (Gym Teacher) and Bloody Castiel, the HMV exclusive 2-pack of Sam and Dean and Sam and Dean both in Baby.
I have quite a few high dollar Pop!s. Currently my grail is, Hollow Ichigo GameStop exclusive from their Anime day. It’s currently valued at $530. Any Pop! I have that is $100 or more I put them in Hard Stacks.
I need three Pop!s to complete my Supernatural collection. They are the NYCC and SDCC exclusive 3-pack of Sam, Dean and Crowley and lastly the Hot Topic exclusive Sam in FBI Uniform.
Currently my grail is, Hollow Ichigo GameStop exclusive from their Anime day. It’s currently valued at $530. Any Pop! I have that is $100.00 or more I put them in Hard Stacks.
The reason I collect Funko is the selection and of course the thrill of the hunt. I get such a thrill when I find a chase in the wild. But I am picky about my boxes. I have walked away from many exclusives and chases because of a damaged box.
Thanks, chadwill!! Looks great!
