A revolution is drawing over the fan landscape: Gone are the days when superheroes, bad guys and strange creatures could only be adored on the screen. Who hasn't always wanted to have a tea party with the mad hatter, wake up next to Thor or share their living room with Batman?
But what was long ago a crazy dream is now becoming a reality - Funko Pop! Figures make exactly that possible!
The history of the Funko Pop characters
Funkos are made of vinyl and are on average 10 cm high. This means they fit onto the smallest shelf and in every corner. What makes them special though is the oversized head.
With some specimens, the head is not only huge, no, it also wobbles! So if Loki and Hulk nod from the dresser, there's no need to worry - rather it’s a good reason to laugh!
The pop figures are not only small and equipped with a large head, they are also designed in the Japanese Chibi style. The cute figures with their numerous details are easy to fall in love with!
It was not foreseeable that the small characters would be so popular, because the success initially failed to materialize. Only with the Funko Pop Game of Thrones figures did the pop figures experience real hype.
Together with their small plastic clones, the GoT performers posted photos on social networks and made the characters really well known to their fans. Then when the Rolling Stone Magazine published an article about the funny figures in 2014, the path to success for the collectibles was paved.
The funko-pop! universe
The vinyl pops come in all sorts of designs in the Funko Pop universe! Figures include the Arkum Asylum from Gotham City as well as Westeros from Game of Thrones. With Pops, whole worlds can be brought into your own four walls. The home office becomes a wonderland in no time.
Once the lust for collecting has got you, it is not so easy to get rid of it. But why? The cute characters sweeten every day anew. To make things even more exciting, there are also limited editions by the little heartbreakers. The special editions, like the normal vinyl pops, are packed in protective window boxes.
These boxes protect the figures from scratches and other damage. The figures can be seen through the viewing window, even if you decide to leave them in the box. In this way, the collectible figures are kept in better condition and their value increases. Of course, the figures can also be collected and unpacked for private pleasure.
