K-Pop Pops?

Postby dork_knight » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:05 pm

In case you guys missed the Q2 Fiscal Earnings Conference Call, the word "K-POP" came out of Brian Mariotti's mouth as a potential genre coming to Funko products next year...I know we had Psy in the past, but we might be getting more K-Pop artists! :)

Stay tuned!

It would be really interesting to see how K-pop lines would do. Would pop figures be something these fans appreciate (would hope so).

I’m not hardcore into K-Pop but some of the music is just so damn catchy even though I don’t know what they’re saying lol I could totally see a Pop version of Big Bang - Fantastic Baby. Those outfits they wear are out of this world. I’d get a set of pops for that because they would be so colorful and cool!

This is a dangerous line for me. Too many band members to collect for every group I'm interested in.

If Funko does make Kpop artists and bands, I can see i a lot of people that i know collecting pops. Also some Kpop artists have pretty distinctive features that set them apart, so they don't end up looking like generic pops. I think this a great idea.

Love to Collect the 80s stuff. Also chasing the Rocky Set. First Funko Purchase was 2012 SDCC.

The only downside is a lot of K-Pop members change their hair colors a lot. Lol all the varients. And then you have the show appearance costumes and all the variety show outfits. With all the BTS hype, I wouldn't be surprised if they were first. But I need some old school SJ love.

They could do a lot with a K-Pop line and fans are always looking for merch. Just look at light stick and variant album sales. Honestly, it'd be a shame if they didn't even try here. There's some big names they could start with just to get things rolling. It'd be a niche series for sure but it wouldn't hurt. I'd totally get some BIGBANG or 2NE1 or EXO Pops.

It would be cool to have groups like Girls Generation, 2NE1, and Wonder Girls. Even the original groups like Baby V.O.X. and SES would be amazing. Not sure if many others would be onboard with the idea.

It's dangerous to unleash K-Pop Funko. Not only would I officially be broke for the rest of my life but that's unleashing the terror of many a teenage girl to rush to the stores and buy them all. Plus can you imagine the exclusives? Or variants. My husband would kill me.


But I am 100000% behind it. I need ALL THE SUPER JUNIOR POPS among like...50 other groups. But I gotta go with one of the original big hitters.

I saw this thread a few weeks back and thought "nah". Then BTS made their UK television debut last week (ish) and they had me intrigued. I'm now hooked on their hit "DNA". So yeah I'd pick up a few if they do BTS. They're apparently a worldwide phenomenon and have been on the cover of Time magazine, spoke at the UN, performed at the American Music Awards. Their fan base would be wise to tap into.
