How Funko Makes Its Pop! Figures

Funko Pop! figures are a bit of phenomenon. Having watched toys and action figures for a few decades now, for something new to come and become a pervasive presence in both the general toy buying public and the collecting fanbase across a number of genres is very unusual. How long will it last?
Here’a couple of background videos.
One from Forbes. (a bit of sign that this is mainstream business)

And one from SYFY Wire.

Inevitable Betrayal Dinosaurs

This Inevitable Betrayal Dinosaur set was at an irresistible price at Zing today.

I saw them on Saturday and didn’t buy them then, but my decision to get them today was both sudden and inevitable.

Batman 66

A 1966 TV Batmobile and Dynamic Duo.

Batgirl, Catwoman, and three lesser known villains: Mr Freeze, King Tut and Bookworm. Catwoman will only ever be Julie Newmar. King Tut was played by Victor Bueno, Bookworm by Roddy McDowell. Three actors played Mr Freeze, this figure is based on Otto Preminger.

The absence of the ‘A’ list villains hints at a second release of these. You never know.

Yes Commissioner?

This Batphone won’t actually work.

Though there are such things available on the internet if your discretionary budget permits.

For us more modest denizens of Gotham this will suffice.

(Aficionados will recognize this is based on the Batmobile’s mobile Batphone, rather than the desktop version found in study, Batcave and Commissioner Gordon’s office.)
