Think of all your favourite movie, gaming, tv and other characters; from franchises such as Star Wars, Marvel, Power Rangers DC Comics, Disney, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones to Stranger Things.
The opportunity to create and expand vibrant collections of timeless characters is almost endless. Funko currently holds hundreds of licenses and the rights to create thousands of characters - the largest portfolios in the pop culture and collectibles industry. Funko’s Pop! Vinyl is the number one stylized vinyl collectible on the market, selling millions of figures to collectors around the world. This is one of the exciting product lines that Gammatek will make available to South African collectors this year.
Funko’s Pop! Vinyl figures stands 9.5 centimeters (cm) tall but limited, exclusive 15.2cm and 22.8cm Pop! Figures are released periodically. Each Pop! Vinyl has an incremental number assigned to it based on the collection it belongs to.
Also available in South Africa, thanks to Gammatek, is the Funko Mystery Minis range featuring collections for fans of Barbie, Five Nights at Freddie’s, Captain America, Zootopia, Beauty and the Beast, Big Bang Theory, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and many more. These are slightly smaller than the Pop! Vinyl figures and come in blind boxes, which means collectors don’t know what they are going to get until they open the box. Adding to the collectibility are insertion ratios that make some figures rarer than others. Funko’s Pint Size Heroes, which also come in blind boxes based on collections, are also hitting South African soil this year, with the range of Funko collectibles, gifts and accessories to be expanded by Gammatek in 2018.
Gammatek’s Zev Cherniak says: “We are really excited to bring Funko collectibles to South Africa. This is the world’s largest maker of licensed, unique toy collectables so it is a major coup for us to be able to offer Funko to local collectors.”
