Which Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures Should You Collect?

Funko Pop Vinyl Collection

 

Alright, let’s get serious for a second here. Did you know that there are approximately a zillion Funko Pop! Vinyl figures in the world? Ok, maybe not a zillion, but a lot. There are movie ones and TV ones, Stark and Lannister ones, and even sports and holiday themed ones. You can have Kermit next to Bilbo, The Dude next to Heisenberg and Captain America alongside Jack Skellington for vinyls' sakes - the options are limitless! So how do you even begin to decide who and what to start collecting? We’ll break it down for you. (And, as always, start with The Dude.) This can also help serve as a gift guide for someone with an upcoming birthday!
