I've got all of the Harley Quinn ones they put out for Birds of Prey(that I know about, anyway), a Gamestop Exclusive Harley, the Suicide Squad Harley, the original costume Harley, a '39 costume Batman, a Green Lantern Batman, a couple of the Batman Beyond ones(one came with the box set), and Ash from Evil Dead 2.

They don't take up a lot of room, really. But I'm not completely sure what the appeal is. I got the Harley ones because I like Harley Quinn, and all the rest were "Oh, hey, that looks like of neat".

I really want them to make Funko of all the Iron Man Armors from the comic books. Especially the first ten or so.

I've bought two Funko Pops of Bob Ross. Both were gifts to other people though and they seem to enjoy them. I also have a young co-worker who has 4 from that new Cyberpunk game and there's also a project manager who has 4 Star Wars versions on their desks.

Reiterates the point that for some franchises, they're not just cheaper but the only real option -- eg it's not like Dinosaurs (1991) the TV show is getting new merch. But also makes the point that because Funko don't need likeness rights for a vaguely recognisable egg shape, you can do characters from films and media where that would be an issue.
