Funko popped at the New York Comic Con 2016 and I was on hand to experience it. Prior to the event Funko announced an exclusive list of stocked items from Funko’s most popular lines Pop!, Dorbz, and ReAction! Having a variety of merchandise gave Comic Con merchants a chance to purchase products from popular shows that they love!

An ongoing theme of the Comic Con this year was Batman. To go along with the theme new versions of Batman, Batgirl, and The Joker took the stage. Batman came as White Lantern or Rainbow. Batgirl was in her classic uniform and The Joker was available in his Killing Joke or Suicide Squad attire! Finally, Suicide Squad Harley Quinn- the most popular costume of the NY Comic Con and Deadshot Dorbz also hit the shelves at the Funko booth.

Many of these POPs! made there way into millions of Comic Con enthusiastic fans hands. The limited edition and exclusive notation of these POPs! made them that more desirable! Merchants were willing to pay a lot of money to get their hands on these collectibles!. Thank you Yoko McCain for a great experience and a little bit of history about Freddy Funko 🙂 I look forward to next years NYCC 2017.
