Comic-Con 2019: Funko Pops At The Show That Are Insanely Expensive
Comic-Con 2019 may have just ended, but there is still so much to talk about at the show. There was a whole weekend of huge SDCC news, and there was one collectible that seemed to be everyone. Hopefully, you've figured out that we're talking about Funko Pops. I'd hope so since the headline of the article is supposed to give away what the piece is about.
Funko Pops are so popular that they should have their own convention, Pop-N-Lock-Con, which could also be a break dancing convention. Funko has spent years turning characters from movies, TV shows, comic books, and more into little vinyl figures, so there are hundreds, if not thousands, of different Pops, including exclusives and chase figures. That means, some will be rarer than others and cost more money on the collector market.
During the convention, one Funko Pop sold for $12,000 at the Fugitive Toys booth. One of the original Pop figures of Alex DeLarge from Clockwork Orange--signed by actor Malcolm McDowell. In fact, the Alex figure pictured above isn't even the one that sold for a dozen grand (that sounds like a candy bar) because I couldn't find an image of that original Clockwork Orange Pop because very few people took it out of the box.
However, there were plenty of booths at the show selling Funkos, but only a few dealt with extremely rare and expensive ones. So here are the most expensive Funko Pops we saw at San Diego Comic-Con, ordered from least to most expensive.
