Paul Scardino Sets Guinness World Record For The Largest Collection of Funko Pop! Figurines

During the summer of 2017, Paul Scardino received a two-pack of Funko Pop! figurines of Hawkeye and Spider-Man from Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War movie for his birthday. Little did he and his family know that this small gift would turn into a record-breaking collection of over 5,000 figurines.

Three years later, Paul officially broke the Guinness World Records title for the largest collection of Funko Pop! figurines with 5,360 different figurines.

After receiving his first two figurines for his birthday, he started researching the types of Funko Pop! figurines available. From that point forward, he looked to collect all the comic book related Funko Pop! figurines (Marvel and DC).  He then realized there were several lines, including movies, television and animation. He started his collection by purchasing those that interested him, which grew to collecting most of the lines and trying to complete sets.

Deadpool Gets Hitched & Sets New Guinness World Records Title

Deadpool.27.Cover

On sale today Deadpool # 27 sets a Guinness World Records title for the most comic book characters on a single issue cover! It’s a monumental, record-breaking issue as Wade Wilson ties the knot in front of hundreds of friends and family alike. The oversized cover of Deadpool # 27 includes an amazing 232 characters and creators. With a total of 224 familiar comic book characters, it’s the most on a single issue cover ever, officially setting the Guinness World Records title.

Deadpool Editor, Jordan White, reflected on the recognition by Guinness World Records and said, “When artist Scott Koblish proposed this cover layout to me, I thought he was crazy…but it’s the kind of crazy you have to respect. I think there’s no better testament to both his insanity and the amazing cover he and colorist Val Staples produced than an officially recognized world record.”

The Merc with a Mouth is now the Merc in Matrimony in the pages of the super-sized Deadpool #27 – from current Deadpool writers Gerry Duggan & Brian Posehn along with an epic assortment of nine previous Deadpool writers.

A day many never dreamed would come has finally arrived – and it’s going to be anything but traditional. For starters, Deadpool’s bride Shiklah is an ancient and royal succubus. The ceremony is going to be one for the ages!

But the main story is just the beginning – this super-sized issue is packed to the gills with new stories from all-star Deadpool writers of yesteryear – including Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri, Gail Simone, Daniel Way & Victor Gischler.
