Collectors of authentic Funko Pop figurines know that it can be an expensive affair. Some figurines have a height of about 3.75 inches and weigh only about 4 ounces, and are pretty cheap. Others are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Collectors of the latter take their collections very seriously, and they often sell or trade them.
What was the first Funko Pop ever made? The first Funko Pop figurine collection was known as Funko Force 2.0, consisting of Batgirl, two Batman variants, and Green Lantern. The three were unveiled at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. Before that, the company produced bobbleheads, the first-ever being the iconic Big Boy.
