You might not know much about Dave Bautista other than that he plays Drax in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and 2 and has sensitive nipples. But it turns out the wrestler-turned-actor is actually a huge geek. And this week, he had a pretty geeky moment to share with the Internet.

Like many fans, Bautista is a collector of items related to his fandoms, which he stores in his "Geek Room." He has a decent-sized collection of vintage lunchboxes. He has "wrestling stuff" and "superhero stuff." He also has an expanding Funko collection that features multiple Draxes and Mr. Hinx (his character from the James Bond film Spectre), to name a few. So when he got a brand-new Funko, he (of course) jumped on Instagram to share it with the world. Only this Funko is extra special because it's a James Gunn figure. Yes, Bautista got a Funko of his Guardians director and buddy James Gunn and wanted to share the excitement -- just like any other fan.

Bautista also has some other pretty amazing items in his "geek room," like Captain America's shield, a Darth Vader figure, a Guardians of the Galaxy license plate from co-star Zoe Saldana, and even a Baby Groot of his very own, just to name a few.

Watch the full video below to catch just how geeky Bautista is. It will warm your heart.
