Thats a good place to start then. Stranger things has several pops that are pretty common.

As for Marvel, I would say try to collect your favorite heroes or villains. The major ones usually have several variants including commons.

I know you are probably asking characters you should start with, but my answer is still eBay. Just run a search for Funko Hikari and do some browsing. You'll find plenty of stuff and lots will be $20 or less too.

I would collect Hikaris again if they ever came out with a horror series. Even a mini hikari horror series would be welcomed, like a Freddy vs Jason 2 pack, Chucky & TIff 2 pack, Psycho & Mother 2 pack, etc :)

The Spider-Man Hikari are some of my favorite, can’t go wrong there if you’re looking for Marvel. Brett is right too, check eBay, you’ll find some great deals on probably one of the most under appreciated lines in all of toys

Yes, definitely do a Hikari search on ebay or Amazon and see if anything catches your eye. Good luck!

They made some pretty good Iron Man Hikari's but just start with what you like. Personally, I'm into the Frankenberry Hikari's.

I started with the Iron Man Hikaris, they are really cool, i also collect most of the freddy mini hikaris as well and dabble in the retro freddy hikari. I recommend starting with a regular sized hikari and not a mini hikari.

Start with one that catches your eye, one from the franchise you love the most. I only have Groot hikari, as I LOVE Groot.

OOB deals I love to find.

Disney is my first love whether it be pops, Dorbz , minis or dolls.

I’m looking to get into Hikaris as well. Gonna start with The Voltron line myself. After looking at these for a while now there actually nice looking pieces. Hopefully tracking them down won’t be too much of an issue. Happy Hunting.

Barnes & Noble, Gamestop and Hot Topic are great places to find Hikaris. I always remember seeing them at toys r us but that store is no longer :(
