Funko is an American company that manufactures band licensed pop culture collectible figures. Founded in 1998, the company recently has exploded in popularity with not just rock collectibles but movie icons and more, from Betty Boop, Captain Crunch to Star Wars.
Last year, I ordered the limited edition Eddie Van Halen figure. It’s really cool as it captures Eddie mid-air with his trademark “Jump” move. The company is coming up on its 25th anniversary and is showing no signs of slowing down. Now they are teaming up with Walmart for a line of live concert-themed figures- Metallica’s Live Master of Puppets 1986 tour and Kiss’ “Alive II” Tour 1978 and AC/DC in concert. They retail around $49.88. Watch your adult kid blow his mind if they get one just in time for Christmas. That’s a small hint for me if anyone is paying attention.
