When it comes to pop culture collectibles, Funko POP! stands out from the pack.
Collecting merch from your favorite movies, TV series and music is a widely beloved pastime. It’s fun to acquire a collection over time, and quality merchandise provides a great way to decorate your home with stuff that you actually love. Finding good, affordable collectibles can be tough, however, but Funko POP! provides a reliable place to start. The best Funko POP! figures are equally at home as a desk toy for a serious businessperson, guarding a child’s nightstand, or sitting unopened in a hardcore collector’s secret stash.
Funko POP! started as a small nostalgia toymaker back in the ’90s, but after being sold in 2005, Funko has blown-up with a massive, ever-expanding line of figurines. Funko’s vinyl toys encompass just about every pop culture property around, ranging from Baby Yoda to Biggie Smalls and Michael Scott. In other words, there’s something for everyone. This wide-ranging inventory, plus an iconic aesthetic and affordable price tags, has made Funko a premier stop for collectors, casual fans and gifters alike.
If you’re looking to start a Funko POP! collection or find your next purchase, read on. Since there are thousands of Funko figures for sale, we’ve rounded up some of the best Funko toys currently available on Amazon, representing the absolute best in pop culture. From Game of Thrones and Star Wars to ’90s hip-hop, these are the Funko figures to know.
1. Baby Yoda
Baby Yoda is probably the biggest character in pop culture right now, which is why he’s our #1 pick for Funko POP! figures. As hardcore Star Wars fans are a little too quick to point out, Baby Yoda is not literally the Yoda we know and love. And, technically, at 50-years-old, he’s not really a baby in the traditional sense. In fact, almost nothing is known about this character’s origin story. But none of that matters. What matters is that he’s the cutest little creature in any universe. After being introduced to the Star Wars universe in baby-form on the show The Mandalorian, Baby Yoda has blown up to be a meme and adorable icon. The toy is a great way to bring some cuteness and Star Wars decor to your home or office, and also makes a great gift for almost anyone this year. Pre-order it now to be sure to get one when it officially comes out on February 5th, 2020.
2. Spider-Man (Far from Home)
There are tons of great Spider-Man toys out there, but this Funko figurine is one of our favorites. It’s modeled after Spider-Man’s latest cinematic form, as played by Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Far from Home. Spidey is seen perched atop (probably) a New York skyscraper while snapping a selfie.
3. Notorious B.I.G.
The King of Rap is still a highly disputed title, but New York’s B.I.G. has a compelling claim to the throne. When Biggie died at just 24, the rap world lost a certified GOAT, but now you can remember the legend in your home with this figurine. The doll captures Biggie wearing his Timberland boots, jersey and gold chain while preparing for battle, mic in-hand.
4. Michael Scott (Date Night)
Bring everyone’s favorite terrible boss, Michael Scott, into your home with this Funko figurine. While you can get Michael in his typical outfit with his mug, we prefer this special edition Funko doll depicting Michael as his date-night self. He’s sporting a backward hat, an unbuttoned shirt and a pool cue (that he probably doesn’t know how to use). It’s an Office outfit that any fan will recognize, and undoubtedly make them want to rewatch the classic episode.
5. Michael Jordan
There are Funko POP! figurines for all the sports fans out there too, and who better to place on your shelf than Michael Jordan? Most Funko dolls are grounded on two feet (or in a vehicle), but Funko had to do MJ justice by putting him in his natural habitat: the air. MJ is seen flying through towards the hoop in his Bulls outfit, ready to slam one home for Chicago.
6. Boba Fett
Boba Fett — the original Mandalorian from The Empire Strikes Back — gets a green chrome treatment in this limited edition Funko figurine. The figurine was created for the summer 2019 Funko convention and makes a standout addition to any collection. Although we’re still not sure if Boba will make an appearance in the new Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, he’s now more popular than ever thanks to the hit show.
We won’t spoil anything for those who have yet to finish Game of Thrones, but this Funko POP! doll gives you a chance to own the MVP of GOT. Arya gets brought to life in her most important moment, wielding a two-headed spear during the Battle of Winterfell. If you’re still sad about Game of Thrones coming to an end (like we are), this is a great way to celebrate one of the best TV shows ever created.
8. Freddie Mercury Wembley 1986
With the incredible success of Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen’s leading-man Freddie Mercury is now an icon of multiple generations. This Funko doll depicts Freddie in the getup he wore while performing at Wembley Stadium in 1986. He sports a golden coat over a white belted jumpsuit and leans over an attached microphone.
9. Mr. Rogers
The newly released film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, cast Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers and reminded us all of the nicest man in showbiz. This Funko doll has Fred Rogers in his most recognizable outfit (green cardigan, sneakers and slacks) and holding a model of the Neighborhood Trolley.
Thought toys couldn’t be scary? So did we… until we saw this Pennywise Funko doll. The figurine shows the world’s scariest clown as he’s depicted in the blockbuster movie It, holding two spider legs. It’s perfect for any horror lover and collector, but maybe put it away if any kids come to your house.
11. Deadpool & Scooter
Marvel’s dirtiest, funniest, most outcast superhero gets the Funko treatment with this doll. The figurine has Deadpool on a red scooter as he’s seen in Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 2, and includes hilarious details like an ‘I love Climatechanges’ sticker on the scooter.
12. Han Solo with Millennium Falcon
The Millennium Falcon is paramount to Han Solo’s character (it’s the reason Obiwan hires him in the first place), so it makes sense that his Funko doll comes with the Falcon for Han to helm. Han has always been a fan favorite of the Star Wars universe, which is why he got his own movie back in 2018 with Solo: A Star Wars Story. This Falcon set costs more than a standalone Han Solo Funko, but it’s a fair price to own the ship that made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs. If you’d rather pair Han with his BWF (best Wookie forever) Chewbacca, you can buy a figurine that features Han and Chewie the way they should be — together.
