Funko was founded in 1998 as a bobblehead company.
In 2005 Funko was sold to the current owner, Brian Mariotti.
Nearly 100 different licences including Marvel, DC, WWE, Paramount, Dreamworks, Hasbro, WB, Disney, NFL, BBC, Cartoon Network, AMC, Star Wars and lots more.
Approx 70% of Funko’s revenue comes from Pops alone.
Funko’s mascot is Freddy Funko who has also been made into lots of different Pop figures. You can always tell a Freddy Funko as he always wears the symbolic crown. These are often produced in very low quantities, sometimes as low as 12.
The Funko warehouse holds over 1 million figures.
Funko has 14 other lines of stylised figures… Dorbz, Fabrikations, Vinyl Idolz, Mystery Minis, Mopeez, Hikari, Legacy Figures, Re-action Figures, Pocket pops/keychains, Super Deluxe Figures, Vinyl Vixens, Wacky Wobblers, Vinyl3 & most recently, Rock Candy.
Funko have also extended their Pop merchandise into T-shirts, bookmarks, pens, home essentials.
Funko’s slogan – “If it ain’t Funko, it aint fun!”
Former products include: Spastik Plastik, Blox & Funko Force.
Pops were originally announced as ‘Funko Force 2.0’. 4 characters were produced (Blue Batman, Black Batman, Batgirl & Green Lantern) in a very limited quantity and packed in a clamshell style case. These currently sell for over £1000 each
The most popular pop is Batman.
The rarest and most expensive standard pop is Alex from Clockwork Orange with only 12 commons and 12 chases ever made. (We are sure there are Freddy Funkos/prototypes out the that are worth more than this but have never been sold)
