Which was your first Dorbz & why?

Postby UlfricFrost » Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:40 pm

I wouldn’t consider myself a Dorbz collector. Do I own a few? YES. Do I search for them or buy them on a regular basis? NO. But there a few that when I see they they are a must have. I love the astral projection Dr Strange Target ex POP. One of my most fav top 10 collectibles easy. I was pleasantly surprised that the MCC box had another astral projection variant. Then I seen a picture of the GS ex astral projection DORBZ. I had to have it. My local store only got 1 in stock and since I literately called about it 3-5 times per week as soon as it was unboxed in shipment I was called. Since then I have bought a few but they gotta catch my eye.

Do you all have similar stories? I would love to hear them. If not did a single DORBZ get you started collecting POPS or other things?

My very first dorbz was the Ultron Dorbz that came in the Marvel Collector Corps box. It was the very first dorbz that kicked off the line and i still have it to this very day. But to be honest, i didn't really care about the Dorbz line too much when it first released. I thought it looked neat, but it did not set me off on a crazed search for more. It wasn't until the Dorbz started evolving and becoming more detailed that started drawing me towards them. I still only limit myself to Iron Man Dorbz only, but i have a few other cute ones like the stan lee in my fleet.

My first dorbz were all the ones from NYCC 2015, I was really on the fence with dorbz and not getting them in stores in Canada at the time I couldn't really handle them and appreciate them. NYCC 2015 I worked the Funko booth and after selling hundreds of dorbz and staring at them all day for 4 days straight I was hooked!

My first was Ultron as some others, which really isn't a very interesting one. I wasn't sure I wanted them, but the decided to get the X-Men. I still have a bunch of ones I need like Cable and Mohawk Storm, but X-Men and Superman are the only ones I actively seek out. I also have Loki and Deadpool and that's about it, haha.

I'll buy any new X-Men and Superman they make, please and thank you! :D

Ultron might have been my first... I honestly don't remember. But I know some that got me to my ~65 number include the Bob's Burgers and Futurama set.

Like most Ultron was my first and I'd pick up one here and there on clearance or that came in the subscription boxes. Was at about 50 at the beginning of this year, not sure what happened lol. With the new direction Brian mentioned I hope that includes having them in the subscription boxes again, still saying since we haven't gotten our Venom he should be in the next box ;)

My first was the animated Mad Hatter to replace not having (nor particularly liking) the original Pop! I got it primarily just to see what I thought of them once in hand as I wasn't convinced, but there's several Dorbz out there that are nicer than their Pop variants - mostly the Alice in Wonderland ones, as far as I'm concerned. The favourable pricing on the secondary market does no harm, either, haha

Steve was the first Dorbz I ever bought! Couldn’t believe when I got in the booth he was still there. However technically he is not my first dorbz. I won the Lucky Charms ad icon one.

My first Dorbz were X-Men because I love the X-Men. I have all of the X-Men, one Ghost Rider, one Freddy Funko that I won, and a Spastik Plastik 3 pack. That is as far as I go with Dorbz. The Ridez, on the other, hand, I have about 35 of those and am quite sad there will probably be no more.

I won a contest for the MCC Civil War box which had the unmasked Iron Man Dorbz. Yoko and Cam were on a podcast promoting Funko for SDCC and that's actually how I found out about the forum.

Fast forward 3 years and I have almost 600 Dorbz in my collection, a bunch of friends that I call family, and a continued love for Dorbz :D

My first dorbz was the ad icons dorbz :) I’m a completionist and I love the ad icons and I had to get them. I have about 300 dorbz now lol. I love them. I feel like they are horribly underrated
Been collecting since 2012!! Absolutely love everything funko related. Current pop count of pops in my collection is over 1800 in box and out of box!!

The main line I collect is ad icons. But as soon as more myths come or expect me to go HAM on that line! Absolutely love flocked pops too!!

My first Dorbz was the first release of the Marvel Dorbz line. I had gotten into Pop collecting a little late and jumped on the Dorbz line as soon as they were released. Ive always thought they were awesome and will continue to collect as long as they are around.

Fruity Yummy Mummy in a Dune Buggy because the AD icon cereal Pops are too expensive. Also, Einstein the dog from Back to the Future in the DeLorean since it is the only way to get him from Funko.

My first Dorbz purchases was pretty recent -- bought during Toys R Us liquidation sale. They had all the Dorbz DC Comics Bombshells and I just had to have them. When I got home, our daughter freaked out over the Harley Quinn one (she's a huge Harley Quinn fan), so I gave her that one. But now I need to get Harley again...LOL.

My first Dorbz was the SDCC X Force grey Deadpool. Once I got him I had to get the rest of the Deadpool and my Dorbz collection took off from there. I like to display the Dorbz out of box to contrast my in box pop collection.

First dorbz was Bender from Futurama. I'd passed on the pops at the time despite loving the show, but the Bender dorbz was just really cool enough to get my attention despite my general preference for pops. I only have a few dorbz, Bender, Nasdaq Freddy, and the GOT Dragons. I probably won't go all in with dorbz, but I really love the few I have.
