Funko Soda Figures are becoming increasingly popular with Funko Pop Collectors and today we give you our AFG heads up and explain a little more about what Sodas are and how you can start and reasons why you should start collecting Funko Soda figures.

As a Funko Pop collector should you start collecting Funko Sodas?

Funko Sodas are vinyl figures that come in soda cans (fizzy drinks cans) but instead of there being any sweet lemonade or cola there you get a very cool Funko Vinyl Soda Figure inside and Pop collectors are starting to pair their Pop collections with Funko Sodas as well simply because it is another Funko merch line that really compliments Funko Pops in the same way as the Pop Pins and Funko Keychains do.

It’s another line that compliments the Funko experience and gives collectors something they can open instead of having to keep the pops within their box to hold their value.

What are Funko Sodas?

Funkos  Soda Figures stand at 4.25-inch tall and come inside Funko Soda Pops. Each Soda vinyl is available in two versions, one is the common version,  and the other is the very rare chase variant version giving you a 1 in 6 chance of finding a rare chase figure.

But here is the thing you can’t just go to the store and buy the chase. The Soda figures are inside cans so when you buy a Soda you don’t know if you have been lucky and got the chase or if you have got the common version.

Why are Funko Sodas becoming popular?

Funko Sodas are becoming popular because they are a unique offering, they don’t come in boxes they are not in a plastic bubble with a card back they come in what are drinks cans and so easy to stack on a shelf and don’t take up much room.

They are also a 3 in 1 collectible. When you buy a Soda Vinyl you get:

  • Soda Can
  • Funko Soda Figure
  • Collectible disc

Another unique offering from Funko Sodas is that they are designed to be opened and do not decrease in value when you open them.

To open your Soda hold the Soda Pop facing upwards, grab the metal cap on the top of the can, and pop it off. As well as the figure inside you also receive a collectible disc letting you know which version of the figure you have.

Reasons to buy Funko Sodas

Here are our reasons for buying and collecting Funko Sodas

 

1. Chase Variants

You have a 1-6 chance of picking up rare chase variant and even if you are not lucky in getting the chase the figures themselves are very often limited editions that have a very low production run so even the common figures are hard to find or become hard to find very quickly.

 

2. You can open your Sodas without impacting their value

Funko Sodas are easily opened without damaging the figure inside. Collectors often like to display their figures out of their boxes or packaging and this is easily done with Sodas

 

3. Limited Editions and Exclusives

All Soda figures are typically limited to a set number that is produced, 5000, 10000, 15000. The production run number is always started on the can, the lower the number the rarer the figure inside.

You also get online stores that are given store exclusives. Sodas that are just sold in that particular outlet, the WandaVision Agatha Harkness Entertainment Exclusive is a very good example of a store exclusive. As well as store exclusives you can also get Comic-Con exclusives
