The success of Funko
is easy to see whenever you walk into a comic bookstore or a mall. Pop! Vinyl figures, of various sizes and formats, are everywhere, and you can’t escape their draw and the addiction that follows your first purchase. This love has created a community of fans whose adoration of these little toys spawns friendships spanning the globe. It’s a friendly world of collectors who share their massive collections and fondness for being kids again. A documentary, “Make Fun – The Story of Funko,”
currently on Netflix, gives a more in-depth history of Funko and the story of the company and the fans that helped make it a global phenomenon.
