I really like Hikaris, especially the mini ones. The large ones were typically far too expensive for me to ever justify spending $60+ on them. However, I do think Funko realized this is the case for most people and they are trying to course correct with the mini hikaris. And I hope it works because I really, really like the color combos they have been coming out with and the look of the minis.

I love Hikari. They look really cool. Just think that $50+ for one is alot to get into collecting. Maybe on a small scale but don't think it would blow up as long as they cost that much.

Hikari is great. However, its price tag is the problem preventing it from being more popular.

It is why I never got into them. The price was unappealing and detoured me for sure

I like the XS ones but I highly doubt they’ll be anywhere close to pops or even Dorbz.

There a bit pricey. The way I see it is pops are $10. It’s affordable to almost all collectors. Where as Hikari have a higher price points (and Don’t look as cool aS POPS)

I think they look cool, but very expensive, If I had lots of money, I would collect them all. I just have a few at this time.

I wonder what's the construction process particularly for the Hikaris with a hand crafted tag to them.

I agree. I love the look of a lot of the hikari's, however the cost is what hurts. Lowering the price would be a win-win in my book

Quality is there but just not as popular as Pops! Price point might be the main reason.

Unfortunately no. I think the mini 2 pack hikari are the last of the breed. Funko is trying.to squeeze something out and it's just not working.

My hikari collecting has always been limited to Batmans, Darth Vaders, and Stormtroopers. The high price has dictated most of that choice, otherwise I would probably expand to Boba Fetts and possibly some other Troopers.

They are fantastic though. Absolutely love the detail, packaging, and quality.

I think the high retail price has been a contributing factor to it not being well sought after. Also that figures themselves can have very polarising designs within the community. Either you love it or you dont!

I think the high price point steered a lot of Funko collectors away from them. But I think Hikaris were meant to complete more so with the Kid Robot/designer vinyl market and complement people's pops and other pieces. I just don't think it worked out that way.

people don't seemed to be that interested. We don't have hikari's in our collection, but I have seen some that I have been interested in, they're just so pricey. So i haven't bought any yet. lol

I was really excited with the idea of the mini Hikari they came out with. The Darth Vader one really got my attention then the freddy Funko minis blew me away too! I wish Funko continued the MINI hikari line. To me they were way cuter than regular hikari and to me would be much more affordable and less space consuming!

I’m hoping they haven’t scrapped the minis yet. I think they are waaaaaaaay cooler than dorbz lol I just loved that Funko payed tribute to the sofubi culture of Japan.

They should either lower the price or make way less. Make it selective genre's and the lower the quantity.
