What are Funko Pop figures?
Funko Pop figures are vinyl collectible figurines that feature popular characters from films, television shows, comic books, and games. Each figure stands 3–6 inches tall with a stylized design that brings the character to life in vivid color. Funko has produced thousands of different designs since their launch in 2010 and has become one of the most recognizable items among pop culture fans around the world.
How are Funko Pops made?
Funko figures are designed, sculpted and produced in a variety of ways. Traditional methods such as hand sculpting and molding are used to create the base figure, which is then painted according to a specific style. Special paint techniques are used for some figures which lends them a more unique look compared to standard designs.
Are Pops valuable?
In the collector’s market, Funko Pop figures can be more valuable than standard figures. Factors such as rarity, limited production runs, exclusivity (such as those found in conventions) and level of detail are all taken into consideration when assessing each figure’s value. It is important to note that the intrinsic value of a Funko Pop figure cannot always be determined as values will vary depending on the market or particular buyer.
Are there exclusive figures available?
Yes, exclusive Funko Pop figures can be found in limited editions and special lines. Exclusives are usually released at conventions or through specific retail outlets and are one of the most popular aspects of collecting. Exclusive figures make it possible to find unique designs and rarer characters with limited production runs, thus pushed their value significantly higher than that of a standard figure.
