The History of Funko
In the early 2000s, Funko began producing figurines of characters from popular franchises such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Marvel Comics. These figurines quickly gained a devoted following, and the company began producing more and more pop culture collectibles. In 2005, the company moved out of Becker's garage and into a larger facility in Everett, Washington.
In the years that followed, Funko continued to expand its product line, releasing figurines based on a wide range of pop culture franchises, including Disney, DC Comics, and Game of Thrones. The company also began producing other types of collectibles, such as plush toys, keychains, and even board games.
In 2015, Funko went public and began trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange. The company's initial public offering was a huge success, and it helped to solidify the company's position as a major player in the collectibles industry.
Today, Funko is a global company, with offices and facilities all over the world. The company has a devoted fan base, and its collectibles are highly sought after by collectors and pop culture enthusiasts alike. In addition to its core line of figurines and bobbleheads, Funko has also expanded into other areas, such as clothing and home decor, further solidifying its place as a major player in the pop culture industry.
