What draws you to the Spastik?

Postby BRiley0216 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 6:47 pm

So of all the things in the world you chose to be interested in Spastiks, but why? For me i love how they are a trademark of a certain era of Funko. I feel they're are fewer and fewer spastik collectors every year but i dont see myself stopping anytime soon.

I only have one Spastik in my collection, but I do like them a lot. They all have very unique designs, and I like that about them.

Yeah.. I love the design and very retro feeling/style they convey. I think many Funko Collectors may lean younger than some of us, and don't fully appreciate the era-designs they're invoking. Oh well, whatever floats your boat right?

I am drawn to them due to their unique designs and the colors that come with those designs. Otto is my favorite of the bunch!

Yeah I have to agree with everyone else here. The original character designs are amazing!
I know the majority of people who collect the older and more original funko products have been collecting for a very long time. But I actually didn't get into collecting until around 2015 and even then I only collected deadpool pops. But ever since I discovered original funko characters like bone daddy and el diablo, that's all I collect now and I love it.

They’re kind of crazy characters, the essence reminds me of these toys I had a kid called Guts. They came in a little plastic tube with a bunch packed in there. They had random stuff from robots to muscle dudes with hair like Stallone, it has that feel of random crazy ideas we had in our notebook as kids.

Probably the first line I saw that I knew immediately I had to try and collect. Its a combination of the characters and the style of figure for me. Their scarcity just adds to the fun of trying to track them down.

The spastik designs are some of the nicest pops that Funko puts out. I just don't have the room to add them in original or Pop! form, though I do appreciate them.

They are unique, wacky characters that tell their own story. I want to know more about the cow cook holding a steak or the pig chef holding a butcher knife behind his back. They are almost a little tongue in cheek with subtle humor to them.

It's great to learn the history behind companies and these are a part of Funko history. These also look great in POP form. Can't wait to see more of the unreleased characters get the POP treatment.

Singing the same tune as everyone else here, but the unique and fun designs of the characters is what really drew me in. Don’t have a ton of original Spastiks, but I have all the pops (sans the FDO chases).

Since they don't have their own origin stories, you get to invent your own story. I also like that since they are not licensed from another company, Funko can do what they will with them. I just with they would make a mystery mini set.

I love the crazy characters. They are completely original and have the wildest colors for some. Remind me alot of old skate board images. One of my favorits is el supremo and that's cause I have always like Mexican wrestling culture

I received my 1st Spastik at FDO 8, Pink T-Bone...never realizing the significance of the character or series! This past SDCC sealed my love with Gill and Sam! I’ve been lurking on eBay for others too. They are just so Original and I think also brings out that Funko spirit in me.

The OG ones are basically what Making Fun was about. Mike was just trying to have fun with these guys. That's why there is a Pulpo in a Freezer Pack. Even if you read the back of the tubes there are Tons of Jokes.

Love these things very Original and they are Amazing.

I really do enjoy the unique characters with a slight back story. Bone Daddy is by far my favorite but the others do not fall far behind. I wonder if they will create more unique characters aside from the Wetmore line.

I personally don’t have any original SP, but I have a great appreciation for them. To me they’re what started the creativity explosion that Funko had and continues to have. From the characters, to the style of collectibles they are.

I really need to step up my game and get on at least one piece for my collection. Lol

I only recently started really appreciating the Spastik line. Most of the older ones I find to be pretty cool but not my aesthetic. I usually prefer cute things over creepy things. But after the Pulpo pop came out with his 2 faces and very recently Fin and Salty, I got hooked.

I really like the kind of morbid humor behind each character in it's details and even the packaging. Like Fin has a human tooth necklace and his box art has various things he probably took a bite out of. Lol
