Best Manufacturer Ever? There are few companies with such diverse selections as Funko. This year we saw Planet of the Apes, Kill Bill, Alien, Predator, Mary Poppins, and many others join their insanely robust stable of adorable collectibles. Blind-boxed vinyl figures, cupcake Disney figures, Pop! Vinyl, and of course Wacky Wobblers (bobble heads) are all getting an insane surge of new licenses. Because that's what Funko does, they take things you love and then find a cheap way for you to collect them all.

Funko also acquired Mixo, who made some papercraft and tins in the 27 minutes between their inception and acquisition by the northwestern toymaker. Of particular note is the nifty Cantivities, a line of office supplies in canisters. Iron Man 3 Cantivities sport figural erasers, pencils, and papercraft in a tin for about ten bucks. It's a swell deal.
One of the most surprising items were announced a few days before Toy Fair with My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Vinyl Figures. These look almost like maquettes or action figures, and include Derpy plus Dr. Whooves.
There's a lot to see here, plus more goodies were showcased in their print catalog and weren't yet ready to display. It's amazing to see Funko continue to blow up into an enormous juggernaut of plastic, but they're also pretty swell people so it makes sense that the Toy Gods will continue to reward them.
