There are 2 versions of Bud Man. One has a hairy chest and the other does not. Fun little Funko facts!


Call me a nerd but I LOVE those little fun facts! I was pretty young when Bud Man was a thing, so I can’t recall his chest hair but it’s Hilarious that funko made two versions with such a small difference.


I would NEVER call you a nerd, just an interesting Funatic who loves Funko history ;-)

Incredibly cool Scotty. This was a fun winding road to travel a long. Your den is well put together and I can only hope to have a space like that in my retirement :)

Cliffy, if you're talking about the Bud Man that's in between my cereal Vynl, that's a ceramic Bud Man beer stein. Back in the 70's my family owned a bar/restaurant. The Anheiser-Bush distributor gave us one, saying it was a trial run for a new line of Bud Man steins. He said it was a limited production run. When they massed produced them they went with a bright white glossy base color instead of the earthy brown.

Jim, I always wondered if your board name was derived from the amount of dust a collection collects and the pain in the butt it is to get rid of it. That's why I bought the Billy cabinets with doors in the other house. Also why I put the Freddy's in my den in individual cases. I never intended to have so many pieces out in the open like I do now. I've been in the new house for about three years and have only done light dusting. One of these days I'm actually going to have to get after it. Can't hire a maid--wouldn't trust anyone else to do it right.

That's right, I forgot (it's been a while), you're a cabinetmaker/woodworker. Coincidentally, I'm putting the finishing touches on my wood shop - last project of the move. Last project is building a 12' miter saw workbench, with the recess for the saw. Once I get that done, I'm in business. :cheers:

Absolutely love seeing collections displayed with such love and dedication to the hobby. I’ve only started collecting Wobblers recently (1 with 1 on the way) but I love the retro, throwback style of them. Wish I would have started collecting them earlier. Again, well done!

You're display is great! I am also trying to balance having a collection and displaying it without it totally swallowing my house. My husband and I are talking about downsizing as well. Makes the pieces you keep more special as well.

Scotty, this post is amazing and I've gotten lost in it more than a few times! I really appreciate you going through the minutae of your collection- every piece has a story and I feel lucky to read it... and to see some of the cool non-vinyl facets like the 2001 catalogue. I worked in a small comic shop back then, and we had that brochure opened up and displayed behind the counter. I got to call the orders into Funko directly sometimes, which was always fun.

I really love how you and other folks have been displaying those Soda figures. My wife and I weren't sold on the line at first, (she really didn't like the Fruit Brute figure,) but I think I'll be collecting a few for my office. Thanks again!
