Funko, a company best known for creating an extensive line of over 1000 different bobblehead figures, expanded its offerings with the introduction of its Pop! line. These vinyl figures, sculpted in a cutesy superdeformed style heavily influenced by Japanese characters like Hello Kitty, stand about 3-3/4″ tall and have very limited articulation. Like Funko’s bobblehead line, the Pop! vinyl figures line features an extensive number of over 300 pop culture characters from movies, video games, music, sports, and comics. It’s just unprecedented how many characters they’ve released in such a short time. Funko’s Pop! style has become so popular that it’s expanded to both plush figures and apparel (t-shirts and hats).
Among the characters Funko has issued as part of this line are the DC superheroes, and in the second wave of DC releases was this Superman. Though the boxes and molds are similar, there are some variations of this figure… there’s a metallic chase variant as well as the bobblehead version that was available at Target (and is currently on clearance if you can find it).
