Why Should You Order Funko Pop! in the US?

There are 2 main reasons why it makes sense to import Funko Pop! figures from the US.

Wider Choice of Figures

If you collect Funko Pop! in Europe or Asia, for example, you probably know that some figures are not available in your region. Pokémon Funko pop is available in the US only

Exclusive Stickers and Collections

Exclusive Funko Pop figures come with a sticker – in Europe these stickers are silver. However, in the US, these stickers are different (every exclusive store has its own stickers).

Of course, if you get the US editions (made for Walmart, Target, Hot Topic, Barnes & Noble, Walgreens, BoxLunch, Gamestop, FYE, Entertainment Earth, etc.) Funko Pop from the US, they have a much higher value in Europe.

A lot of figures may be available at your local store, however, if you want to order some limited editions from the US or order for the best prices on the market, you can take advantage of our package forwarding service.
