Who has signed your pops? ...

Postby Purpleiron » Fri Apr 17, 2015 3:14 pm

My first ever pop was a Stan Lee that I bought at the London film & comic con last year. I was really fortunate to be able to get it signed in person. I also have a signed spike/ James marsters, which was his very first pop he ever signed. He even commented on a panel that 'I popped his pop cherry'

This coming convention season I shall be getting pops signed instead of photos...so far my line up..... Marty McFly, the Doc, Castiel, Sam. Dean, Crowley, Charlie, Green Arrow, Drago, Superman, chase spike., white power ranger..

Collecting pops is so much more than just a collecting hobby and I'm glad I discovered it.... Albeit later than most

For me, I'd really love to get my OZZY pops signed, I met him twice before and he signed me, got it tattoes etc, but now I have pops!!

So, who popped your signing of pops cherry?

I'm a LoTRs fan, and after I saw Sauron at Hot Topic, I purchased it. Then it just kinda snowballed from there...

First my girlfriend bought a Dark World Loki Pop. Then, I bought a Green Lantern pop as my first. And yeah, it snowballed from there.

No pops signed for me yet. Debated Stan Lee @ ECCC, but Im just not a big enough Stan Lee fan boy for the line and the price.

I would have done Norman Reedus if he didn't cancel in Portland WW

When I first found out what Pops were, I was mostly buying them for other people as gifts. I remember a lot of DC stuff going out. I think I got Wolverine for myself and only had him for awhile. Then series 2 for Marvel came out and it was all downhill from there.

I have a bad habit of not fully paying attention....... I will go stand in the corner.






That being said, I will never have that particular first fulfilled. I just don't care enough to have my figures autographed. It also doesn't help that I live in an area that makes con attendance inconvenient at best.

Mine was the Joker Batman-Batman in Loot Crate in December... ever since then I've gone on what I like to call the "Funko Diet Program"

That is to say: If I consider getting fast food or delivery, I think about the Pops I could buy with that money instead and end up eating soup while ordering things from EE lol

Great story! I've never attended a convention, but I would totally get my PoPs signed.

Received both a Star-Lord and a Super Saiyan Goku for Christmas along with the December Loot Crate that include the Joke Batman Batman. I've been slowly building my collection ever since. I tend to get carried away with these things, so I'm trying my best to take it slow and enjoy the ride and focus on completing the sets I've already started.

There is always the question of course, whether to sign the pop or the box? I always get the box signed. I love the whole experience and its a great topic for conversation with a guest

I live in the UK and would love to get to a US con or Funday in the future, but for now I get to as many UK cons as I can!

For me, it was either Buzz or Mickey at the Disney Store. I thought they looked cool so I bought it. At that time, there were the other Series 1 Pops there but I didn't think I would collect them all so I didn't buy them at the time. Little did I know that a few years later, I'd have them all. =)

Well, I was at Wondercon a couple week ago and had bought a B&W Wolverine and Len Wein was over in Artist's Alley. I just didn't put it together to go ask him to sign it until I was on the freeway driving home. He was the writer of Hulk #180 and #181, Wolverine's first appearance.

was never much of a fan of paying for someone's signature, especially with the prices some of these people are charging, but last summer I got the chance to meet Mads Mikkelsen at a local con and could not pass on getting him to sign my Hannibal pop. My first and only autographed pop (for now, at least :)) only regret I have is not having him sign the actual pop instead of him signing the box ](*,)

Like many others it all started with Stan Lee. As much as I love the guy, I have no comics I'd want him to sign so this was perfect. Since then I've been trying to get at least one autograph at every convention I attend. Most recently, I got my Charlie pops and proto signed by Felicia Day at Wondercon.

Stan Lee, David Morrissey, Michael Rooker and Christopher Lloyd. Debating on getting Adam West or Kevin Conroy on a Batman as long as they don't cancel at the Comic Con next month. I was going to do Carrie Fisher but found a cool poster instead. I would have done STNG had they been around at the time; however, my poster is a great consolation prize since there is not a Dr Crusher one yet.

Nothing signed yet, but I really want to get my Vegeta's signed, and possibly some TMNT stuff and my Rorschach's. May try and attend this years NYCC to do just that. Pretty sure Chris Sabat was supposed to attend at least.
