Many people would admit they collect something. From model trains to Star Wars ships to Pokémon cards, it seems almost everything has some kind of "more is more!" mindset behind it. And the more you buy, the better your collection will be!
One of the hottest collectible items on the market right now are the Funko Pop vinyl figures.
While most casual fans can admit to having one or five of these tiny figures, one man's collection grew to such tremendous proportions that it forced his wife to draw up a contract to curb his buying habits.
A Redditor was able to get a picture of the contract, and he shared it for the world to see...
Some key points include a weekly $30 spending limit, an exception in case any of the big comic cons come to town (they are huge purveyors of ultra-rare Funko Pop figures), and a caveat that if he sells any part of his current collection, he may use the extra funds to exceed the $30 a week limit.
One Reddit user posted photos of his collection. How many recognizable characters can you spot?
The internet was quick to share their feelings about not only the contract, but the size of the man's Funko Pop collection:
The contract frankly seems pretty generous considering— Rich Uncle Pennybags (@runclepennybags) January 18, 2018
Went through the whole album and he has AT LEAST ten Minions— Jackson (@gacksonjiles) January 18, 2018
In a recent comment he said he's spent $36,890 on funko pops so I have some concerns— /dʒerəd/ /sɪŋkjulə/ (@Jared_Sinkula) January 18, 2018
Food $200— Sophisticated Adult (@MotherfukinLuna) January 18, 2018

I'm getting serious about budgeting right now and making tough choices and reading this is UPSETTING— Nicole Kennedy (@the_nikki_g) January 18, 2018
Of course, not every contract is perfect:
i’m offended by this contract as a lawyer, there’s no real penalty if he overspends in a month? she got hosed man— faboolah (@azninthesun) January 18, 2018
"NYCC week" doesn't necessarily mean that James is limited to buying Pops at NYCC. He has free reign to buy all the Pops he wants from anywhere that week. What a poor contract. Did a lawyer even look at this thing?— Trent Reznor Ramon (@fuzzybritches) January 18, 2018
And let's not be too hard on this guy's wife:
man, i love how people are saying "his wife is controlling" as if he wasn't spending all of their money on what seems to be a funko pop addiction— アリーネはいつも疲れている (@amateurCatalyst) January 18, 2018
i mean, dude spent almost 37k on those fricken statuettes
that's a bit concerning, isn't it?
