Snapshot Sunday - Inside Out Funko Pop

For Christmas my husband got me Fear, Joy and Anger Funko Pop figures! I'm super excited because I love, love, love Inside Out but I was sad that Disney never made an Inside Out Vinylmation series, so I'm happy to have these figures in Pop form instead. I already have Bing Bong and Disgust so now all I need is Sadness to complete my set. If you'd like to trade please let me know!
