Comic-Con 2020: SDCC 2018's Rarest And Most Shockingly Expensive Funko Pops
These Funko Pops will definitely pay for themselves.
Whether we're talking about Beanie Babies, Pokemon cards, or Funko Pops, there's always someone willing to pay more for a "holy grail" than what you might happen to consider reasonable. While Comic Con 2020 is happening at home, previous years have delivered some eye-watering examples of high priced collectibles. At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, we went on a hunt to discover where that upper limit might lie. The results were shocking and, to be honest, incredible.
Just how rare is rare when it comes to Funko Pops? As we discovered on this amazing journey, some Pops are rare because they were only ever released at a single event. Some were produced in hyper-limited quantities, including the most expensive Pop we found at Comic-Con--which you'll see at the end of this gallery. And some are just incredibly cool and in high demand.
At the end of the day, these Funko Pops are just cheap chunks of colored plastic. Their only actual value is the imaginary worth we assign to them. But as with any popular collectible, that doesn't stop Pop hunters from dropping hundreds--and even thousands--of dollars on them. And in the end, if they bring someone happiness, isn't that worth it?
