Today we start a new feature here at ActionFigureGeek that we are calling Collectors Corner where we introduce you to friends of AFG who are avid collectors.

Our first inductee to the Collectors Corner is ActionFigureGeek Reddit member The Connonedrum”

Collectors Corner – The Connenedrum

I was recently asked what got me into collecting and I had to say it was my passion to collect memorabilia that I have enjoyed for a long time. The first item I collected was basketball cards as a kid, but as an adult, the first item I collected was an Okoye Funko Pop!

When I started collecting the Funko Pops I wanted to stick to one genre. I had moved into a new house and wanted a theme for my setup for my room. Unfortunately, I found that this was not going to be the case because I knew there were several genres of Funkos I liked and so many different ones I wanted to add to my collection.

During the same time as I started collecting Funko Pops, I started collecting figures from McFarlane Toys, with D.C. Comics and Spawn figures being favorites.

After I started collecting figures, I moved on to collecting statues. I love collecting statues because they are huge, and they make a big statement.

My Best Buy - Collectors Corner The Connenedrum

I never knew that my collection would get so large, but I appreciated the journey I had embarked on to get to this point.
After speaking with some friends, they suggested I start streaming and showing off my collection which led me to create my username “The Connonedrum.”

With this username, I created a TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Threads, and Twitter (X) page .

I felt that this was a good way to build up a community of like-minded individuals who like to talk about collecting and the collections they have.

I enjoy speaking with people about what made them start collecting, how many things they have, and things that they would start collecting in the future.

It has been an incredible journey and I appreciate the fact that I can give back to so many people.
