Express Your Shelfie and WIN Funko Pop! Vinyls from GameStop!

Written by

This Special Feature brought to you by GameStop and Funko

Over the past few years, Funko Pop! Vinyl has become one of the hottest collectible lines out there. With each new collection announced, one tends to wonder A) How they haven't done this one before; and B) How many untouched licenses still exist? Funko truly has something for everyone, and the variety is incredible. One of the best places to fuel your Pop! addiction is at GameStop, who offer the Funko Insider Club brought to you by Power Up Rewards. Giveaways are a big part of that, and this month they're asking you to #ExpressYourShelfie for a chance to win a cool GameStop/Funko Prize Pack including a pair of limited edition CHASE Pops! But that's not all... GameStop & The Rock Father have another chance for you to win as well!

The Rock Father's Shelfie

The first Funko Pop! Vinyl I ever bought was a Batgirl for our oldest daughter, Addie. Since then, our girls have fueled the Funko love in our house, amassing a collection of Pops that are actually played with, and pretty well-worn. For me, the Star Wars collection is where it's at, and while the girls do play with these as well, they're now displayed in my office alongside some pieces from other licensees. A few of my favorites are the Ant-Man and Yellowjacket Pops - the very ones played with by Paul Rudd and Corey Stoll at the press junket for Marvel Studios' Ant-Man movie back in 2015, along with The BFG Pop! - which Steven Spielberg played with at the press event for that film! Occasionally, I'll even travel with Pops, taking pictures along the way!
