Default What is the best Funko Pop?

Love it.

Anyway, Funk Pops. Notoriously tacky tchotchkes. I have never had it within me to be mad about their existence, which means I’ve been unable to commit the most absurd of them to memory. What is the best of them? or “best”? Show me some good Pops.

The best Funko Pop is the one you don't buy.

Ah, Pride Batman, cool, but...

He’s not, actually? Wrong color order! Who is this for? The question is sincere.

you have greatly misunderstood the purpose of the best funko pop thread

my boy at work bought six symmetra pops so he could have six turrets. I thought that was pretty funny.

Okay, real answer?

The only good Funko Pops are the POP Monsters, because they're original characters and the soulless black-pearl eyes actually work in the context of weird little monsters.

This thread affirms all Pops as worthy. (of what, exactly? you decide!)

This guy’s sole complaint about the first ‘pop was that its wobbly lil little feet tilted its ass over.

I have not watched the full review.

Love BB8; love the Original Monsters.

Shouldn’t have clicked; found the PlayDoh Minion being stripped into oblivion a strange sensory pleasure. Not sure if Funko Pops appear; probably shouldn’t keep watching.

I can't tell which would be more bewildering: the Monica Funko itself, or someone who could recognize its context by just looking at the figure.

"Oh yeah, that's from when Monica was working for Pete Becker, played by a young Jon Favreau."

Yes. I have that one. Also Chopper and R2 are excellent.

Also the TARDIS Pop could be used with other toys.

He hasn't. I have mixed emotions about this.

Realtalk: if those came as a pack-in bonus for a box of Chocos chocolate cookies, I would definitely grab them.

The quality of a Funko is inversely proportional to the humanity of the character it's depicting.

I did not expect to find any that I could appreciate, but the lazy, soulless eyes actually kind of work on this one.
