Funko has a batch of Pop figures available to pre-order, and I don’t know about you, but I like to call dibs on my Pops before they become rare or expensive!
I’ll be real, no one really knows which Pop’s will become rare but a lot of them do.
The reason a Funko Pop becomes rare and expensive is if Funko discontinues a character or they’re no longer sold in stores, so people who snatched them earlier in the game jack up the prices. This is known as flipping.
You should know, even though some are discontinued and put into the vault, it doesn’t necessarily mean the price will be jacked up. Sometimes a rare Pop isn’t always a main character either, the minor characters are showed the most love.
If you want to play it safe and get them early and at a reasonable price, here’s a list of Pop’s that I think are WORTH pre-ordering.
