What if Funko made Historic landmarks?

Postby FunkoAlphaBravo » Sun Feb 16, 2020 2:20 pm

With Funko HQ coming out soon, it would be awesome to see Funko make awesome landmarks. I’d love to see the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Mt Rushmore, or Great Wall of China?

That's a cool idea. I'd probably collect the ones I've visited and add new ones to my collection as I visit the landmarks.

My thoughts went to this line as well.
It would be awesome if they came with mini historic landmarks from their respective country (and not pop towns because I'm running out of room! lol)
LOVE the MOTU line! Trying to get all the "I'm a Fan Of" buttons...HELP!! :cherry:

I believe it would be a money loser to continue to put out "Pop Towns". I just don't see Funko making profit on these things.

I agree. It’s a cool concept. But at current scale it’s really hard to collect all these and display.

It would make funko so much money internationally. When tourist stop at these landmarks, they can just pick up a pop to remember it

Oh yeah lol pop towns take a lot of space. They could possible make them smaller. I just see LEGO killing it with these awesome landmarks and see funko destroying it

Yeah true about space for them. If they make very limited amounts to start, they could test how collectors feel about it.

Don’t get me wrong I think they are cool and hope they make more. But think about all the work going into to making one, artists, designers, sculpting and making the prototype. It seems like it would be costly to do all that.

Since they have POP! towns this wouldn't be toooooo surprising. I suppose it all depends on the market?

Yeah you’re right. I think we’ll see how much demand there is for Funko HQ. They have made History pops like Abe Lincoln and can imagine the Liberty bell being a historic landmark to be made?

You could make a whole display centered around a trip around the world with the characters and matching iconic locations. It would be like those model trains sets, but with pops.

I think this would really only work for things like the Statue of Liberty and Mt Rushmore. Not really sure how well the monuments would sell without a pop counterpart.

Also size of these pieces is a no go for me lol
