Funko Pop are tiny vinyl figures that are about four inches in height representing various celebrity characters ranging from WWE wrestlers to other personalities such as Spider Man. Their small-scale size and adorable models make them fantastic for collectors and super fans. There are other size options that range all the way to eighteen inches…go big or go home right?
Funko Pop characters are immediately identifiable because of their extremely contorted model type, portraying individuals with gigantic heads and bulging eyes. Just like other familiar brands like DC comics or Disney you will be able to recognize a Funko Pop figure when you come across one.
Comic book movies have become extremely popular with people’s fandoms increasing exponentially. With this rise in comic book culture, Funko Pop has released hundreds of new characters, along with various celebrities and pop stars since then. Whether you're a seasonal fanatic or die hard geek culture enthusiast, there is always a Funko Pop figure just for you. Characters like Rick and Morty or the Red Power Ranger demonstrates just how versatile these figures can be. Since these toys have become the new mainstream fascination, Funko Pop figures can be found anywhere and everywhere, being sold from places like Amazon or online sites like MDMC Authentics. Buying hundreds of Funko Pops or even thousands are definitely worth collecting. Whether you are a devoted collector or just can’t get enough of how cute they are, Funko Pop Vinyls do provide a great investing prospect.
Funko Pop Vinyls are hot on the collector’s list because opening the display box does not decrease its value, unlike other toy’s values that literally plummet once you even look at it. Their boxes are not sealed therefore you can easily access your figure and place it in and out of the box at your convenience. Although it is hard to predict which ones will become popular due to these figures being inclusive yet exclusive at the same time, some Pop Vinyls are manufactured strictly for promotional uses and are bound to that corporation or experience, making them limited editions. Due to the virtue of exclusivity, more and more people will want what not everyone can have and it is best once you get your hands on one to never let it go until it increases in value. Besides the financial aspect of Funko Pop Vinyls, these figures are also popular among fans due to the sentimental side of them. These toys represent characters that people grew up with or have inspired them throughout their life, owning a figure would create a sense of nostalgia. The act of remaining interested in something that seems so childish when you are expected to grow out of it keeps your heart light. Buying Funko Pop Vinyls also demonstrate a loyalty to various universes that exist within DC, Marvel, Disney, etc. To those who do not understand the obsession, collecting these figures would just seem like a huge waste of money but to people who appreciate their true value know the real significance they hold. Funk Pop collectors are always kept on their toes and wanting more because you never know which figure they will release next. What makes collecting Funko Pop Vinyls individualistic, is that everyone’s collection holds various figures that are all figures that they enjoy and are valuable to them, making it seem very personal. The community among other collectors and Funko Pop lovers also creates a sense of belonging with bridges to meet more people that are interested in the same thing as you.
