What Are Funko Pops?
Funko Pops are vinyl or plastic designs that depict pop culture individuals and characters. The distinctive Pops feature large, almost square heads with small bodies. They also sport large, round, black eyes.
Founded by Mike Becker, the first Funko Pops figures were released in 1998, with the original line called Wacky Wobblers. Since then, Funko Pops have grown in popularity, becoming almost as famous as troll dolls or Beanie Babies.
Are Funko Pops just a fad? Collectors are still snatching up the vinyl figurines, and some of them have surpassed anyone’s expectation of value. So while the fate of Funko Pops remains to be seen, we’re content to collect those Pops that are so adorable they make you squeal with delight.

So, how can you check a Pop’s authenticity? There are a couple of steps you can take to protect your investment. Let’s explore how.
First, double-check that the serial number on the Pop’s head or foot matches the one displayed on the original box. Second, you can compare the border that outlines the figure box window. If the white edge looks larger than those on other Pop boxes, you may be dealing with a fake Funko Pop.
