I actually didn't think these things would still be around by now. How has it not dawned on the people buying these "collectibles" that they're just throwing money away? I saw a link to a video the other day (which, full disclosure, I didn't watch) about someone's funko pop collection which they valued at $500,000. I laughed for like three minutes straight.

Not only that, they're they're just SO ugly. I hate the way they look. At least they don't have a dedicated display case at my local comic book and used video games stores anymore.

What's really weird are Funko Pop tattoos.

There are a bunch of them out there.

They're bothering me because those stupid ugly things are taking up shelf space that could be used for must more useful, interesting, necessary things.

Can't find a stick of RAM in a store, but you can find 200 Funko Pops collecting dust on the shelf.


It is 2020, why are you buying things at a store?

Well this turned into a "Stop liking what I don't like" thread rather quickly.

I know three people who are way into Funkos. They have dozens. Each is a sad and broken individual.

Funco makes those pops about anyone. I think they made one of me.
