Talking All Things Funko-Related With Virtual.Ambvxr

Today we sit down with Amber (aka @virtual.ambvxr on Instagram), one of our official Pop In A Box ambassadors and an avid Funko collector, to discuss her Funko collection, interests, and collecting background!

About Amber…

Hey! My name is Amber and I am a collector of all things Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, and anything else that is worth collecting really! I am from (and living) in England, UK. I work from home as an administrator for a car company and also run my own small business ‘Amber Cove’, as well as creating content for my nerdy Instagram account! I love to be super busy and have lots to do. hence the busy bedroom full of collectibles!! My top interests/hobbies are photography, gaming, creating art and travelling/exploring!!

When Did You Start Collecting Funko Pops?

I bought my first Funko Pop in 2018 and didn’t expect to ever want another one… Well, lockdown hit and my collection has just blown up ever since!

What Made You Get Into Collecting?

During lockdown 2020, I made my Instagram account for gaming and made friends with gamers in the community. I then started discovering people who are also Funko collectors and loved how their collection looked …

I absolutely loved how the Toy Story collection looked and went on a mission to find the full set. I am almost close to the full collection now, along with many more full collections.

How Many Funko Pops Do You Own?

I don’t even know how many I have any more due to having some boxed away to create more space. I definitely have over 200!

What’s Your Favourite Funko Pop! Vinyl Out Of Your Collection?

This changes all the time, but at the moment it’s definitely my Summer Convention 2022 Bambi Funko and Thumper. I also love the Pop! Ride Mando & Grogu riding the Bantha (The Mandalorian).

What’s Your Favourite Film?

I always hate this question as I have way too many favoruites. The first three that come to my head are Toy Story, Star Wars: Episode I – Revenge Of The Sith, and Happy Gilmore.

What’s Your Favourite TV Show?

I have too many choices but my top three are The Mandalorian, Peaky Blinders, and Umbrella Academy! Fun fact, The Mandalorian is what made me love Star Wars!

If You Could Have One Superpower, What Would It Be?

This is another question I’ve never been able to answer as I think I’d rather just have no powers! But if I had to choose, I’d probably like to have the same powers as Starlight from The Boys. I don’t have a specific reason other than them being pretty cool! I also wouldn’t mind super strength as I’m super WEAK.
