The Funko Room – Funko Tips and Tricks Episode 1: The Basics

At first glance, a lot of people don’t think that there could possibly be much to collecting Funko products. But it’s not just some toy you can walk into any store and pick up; not all of them at least! We here at My Comic Universe want you to know everything there is to know about collecting these amazing figures!

MCU’s Travis steps back into The Funko Room and continues his Funko Tips and Tricks series with Episode 1: The Basics. This episode covers the history of the Funko Pop, with their original introduction as Funko Force 2.0, product information, common terminology you will encounter and a couple of basic tips and pointers for beginning collectors.

We here at My Comic Universe hope you enjoy this video! Please keep an eye out for Episode 2: Hunting, which will be coming soon!

MCU: The Funko Room – SDCC 2017 Exclusives Top Picks

When it comes to collecting Funko Pops, no time of year is more rewarding than convention season! Most of these conventions bring with them a wide range of new exclusive pieces. Starting out the major con season is SDCC! Funko announced that there would be a whopping near-dozen waves of exclusives for this year’s San Diego Comic Con, with a varying range of rareness. Some of these pieces have a limited number made which is printed on their stickers, whereas others are shared exclusives with stores like Hot Topic, Gamestop, Barnes & Noble, etc.; and can be found with relatively little effort outside of the convention.

Join My Comic Universe’s resident Funko collector, Travis, as he discusses and highlights his top picks of this year’s exclusives lineup!


Let us know in the comments or on social media what your thoughts are on this year’s exclusives! Which are your top picks? Which are you disappointed with? Which are you trying to secure for your own collection? We would even love to see what you picked up in previous years! Post a pic on social media and tag us!
