Toy maker Funko’s massively popular “Pop!” vinyl figurines have come to Amoeba Hollywood in a big way.
We first started carrying the 3.75-inch tall toys, which resemble pop culture icons with enlarged heads and eyes, when the company made music figurines for the likes of Michael Jackson, Tupac and The Beatles. Now as they’ve grown in popularity, we’ve begun carrying Funko’s Pop! collectibles from all realms of the pop culture landscape.
“It keeps growing and growing,” says Amy Pennington, a buyer for Amoeba. “I think it was this past Christmas when we realized how popular they were and that we should devote an entire section to them.”
The Funko figurines now mostly reside in their own section between books and soul music, along with more pop culture goodies like vintage-style lunchboxes and Beatles collectibles.
Figurines in-store come from TV shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Adventure Time” and “Breaking Bad”; films such as Frozen and Guardians of the Galaxy; and franchises such as “The Avengers” and “X-Men.” We’re also carrying some of Funko’s cultier offerings, like Howard the Duck and the Bride of Frankenstein.
