Love the passport. However, I'm not sure that I will collect the whole line.

My eyes are on Ozzy, maybe Douglas, Kuma and Hamsel. Also thinking we will see Buckingham this week or next!

This is a cute idea! I don't see myself collecting the line, but it's still something new and interesting. I do like the designs.

Like the idea of collecting the pins for the passport book. Kuma and Paco are my favorites of the bunch.

I'm more enticed by the collectable pins! It's so awesome how the book to collect them is a giant Passport. Great idea!

Fun idea, I forgot about these from Fundays. The pin/passport book is a slick gimmick, adds some fun flair to the collection.

Cool line!
I wonder how they will be packaged...like does the pin come with the Pop? Do you have to buy them separately?

I think this could really pull a lot of collectors in though!

I like these but I wish they were more authentic to each country, I mean Ireland isnt really all about Leprechauns and Germany isnt all Oktoberfest, they have a much more rich history that could be represented. And a lot of these countries have national animals that could have been used (lion for Germany etc.). Its a cute idea just from reading some of the comments from International collectors I totally agree that these are very "americanized". That being said I do think they are cute and a good idea for a line.

That's the problem that I've had with these since they were announced. At the least they need to add American stereotypes that other countries hold to make it more even. Horse wearing a cowboy hat?

I thought these were adorable when they were announced at Fundays and hoped to grab at least one. The whole pin and passport almost requires you to collect them all. Sneaky Funko! Very cool idea and I kinda hate them for it lol.

Although I haven't been to the bulk of the countries so I don't feel as if I've earned their pops. Gotta do some traveling.

That is so neat that they come with a pin, also having a funko passport to put all of those in.

That would be cool, but it will be hard on the wallet if you end up wanting the entire set...unless you know people around the globe.

I agree with everything you said. They could have gone a bit more authentic, but they are still cute. A unicorn for Scottland would be awesome! I do love the passport.

are these pop/pin combos? wondering how to get the pieces to fill in the passport. Would stink if each pop is restricted to it's specific country.
