To be fair, the last LOTR con exclusives didn’t sell very well. Even though they were awesome.
I don't know about sales, but I can't believe LoTR sells worse than The Office or Umbrella Academy or any other number of very niche lines with very niche fan bases! Either way, time to admit that the line is unofficially over.
Would be nice if Funko let its loyal fans know so that it can be made official.
It'll go in cycles, up and down. Taking breaks between releases for other lines to come into the picture for the fans.
Maybe, but if they are paying licensing fees to retain the rights to produce LoTR POPs, it just doesn't add up. I started collecting LoTR way back in the days of the Sideshow/Weta collab and when that line ended, it started the same way. No news, no releases for an extended period and then, bam, they announced it was over. I started collecting the POPs thinking that it was a much cheaper way to get my LoTR fix and was hoping for so much more.
