THE CW SOUTH FLORIDA NEWSLETTER: THE LATEST EVENTS & UPDATES DELIVERED RIGHT TO YOUR INBOX

Comic Connoisseur: Unklefigs Collectibles Store

Calling all fans and collectors of Funko Pops! Looking for a place to find that rare Funko Pop you missed or is no longer on the market? Welcome to Unklefigs collectibles store. Where you’ll find master Funko Pop collector, Ricky Rojas aka Unklefigs.

Unklefigs has a variety of Funko Pops you can choose from, and it all began when he started collecting Pops.

"I started my collection with my son almost six years ago, we stopped in one store to start collecting and this is what it has become," said Rojas.

Unklefigs combines his love for Pops and his love for the community by holding a local event in his shop.

"Our events that we have once a month are for our collectors that come into the shop. Collectors came into the shop and try to trade with me but I already had them and I didn't want duplicates, so the event is for people to come here and trade with each other," said Rojas.

And collectors from South Florida love Unklefigs.

"Unklefigs is the man, it's a local store and there aren't very many of them around, and he's got a little bit of everything. He's a super kind and sweet guy who really loves talking to his costumers. It's definitely the best Pops spot in Miami," said Funko Pop collector Wayne Perez.

"He's awesome, he's such a great dude, I love coming here all the time. He's constantly posting stuff that I'm looking for, and I come here all the time," said Funko Pop collector Vincent Missari.

Even if you aren’t a Funko Pop collector, Unklefigs believes these collectible figurines bring joy.

"Funko Pops bring out memories that will really make you smile. I've been in business a long time and I promised myself that I'd find something that I really truly loved to do. When I saw the smile that Funko Pops put on my and everyone else's face, really shows the important part for us," said Rojas.

Unklefigs is open Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm, and if you want to learn more about their events, check out their instagram @unklefigs.
