Funko Pop Vinyl Toys, Bobble Heads and Plush Dolls

Updated on June 3, 2015

Hundreds of Funko Pop figures

Pop! Vinyl action figure toys created by Funko come in 12 different groups, with more than 500 popular characters from cartoons, current movies, comic book superheroes and legends of rock 'n' roll.

Funko Pop! figures are issued in a series of six or twelve new characters at a time. Over the course of a year, they add a few to each group (more or less) for a total of over 140 new characters, plus special edition pop vinyl figures issued at comic book and movie conventions.

Pop Television started with characters from The Simpsons and a set of breakfast cereal mascots. In 2012, Funko introduced new Pop! TV figures of the popular Yo Gabba Gabba! program for preschoolers. Dr. Sheldon Cooper comes with five different t-shirt designs, and the other characters from the Big Bang Theory have their own mini-bobble head figures.

The San Diego Comic-con is the place where these special vinyl figures are first issued to the public. Limited editions of these exclusive Pop figures are available at the show for fans, and a few may reappear on eBay.

Disney Pop! Series 1 - 5

Disney Pop was one of the first sets to be produced by Funko, starting with Mickey Mouse. At last count, there are over one hundred "standard" Disney figures, with dozens of exclusive edition Pop Vinyl figures with metallic paint or scaled up to 9 inch tall works of art.

Disney Pop Series 2 features Buzz Lightyear and the characters in the Toy Story movies, bringing the art and magic of Disney 'to infinity, and beyond'! Other figures in the Disney Pop! set come from all the years between Mickey Mouse and Buzz Lightyear.

Disney Pop! Series 4 was released in the summer of 2013 with twelve more characters from WALL-E, Snow White The Nightmare Before Christmas, and more Disney Pixar Films. Find the latest Pop figures from Wreck-It Ralph, Aladdin, Jungle Book, Merida from Brave and Monsters University.

Exclusive Funko Pop Toys

Find special limited-edition figures from the San Diego Comic-con with a metallic finish or super-sized figures. Typically created in lots of 480 figures, these always sell out quickly at the shows.

The annual Disney D23 Expo is another place where special edition figures are available. Now is your chance to buy one of these limited edition figures without going to San Diego (but it would be so cool to actually go to SDCC).

See the Toy Collecting Glossary for more information about collecting rare action figure toys, and see an official List of Retired Funko Pop vinyl figures for hard-to-find characters from Funko now out of production.

      @anonymous: Funko made Lilo and Stitch, and Brave is coming out soon. I will text Santa and let him know about your Christmas wish. And I'll wish for Finding Nemo - those figures would look great!
