    I don't mind collectables at all, but these things... Ugh. They all look so dead and terrible. I don't even mind chibi-looking things, nendoroids can be cute, but the soulless eyes immediately ruin anything funko pop touches.

    I personally don`t like Funko Pop. They look all weird and all the same to me. And I`m an avid toy collector, by the way.

    If they arent too expensive, like about 3-5 times less than amiibo
    Then i might start a collection
    I have some amiibo but not a collection
    Unlike my former teacher who had only one missing amiibo
    The plush yoshi one

    I dont have much money so...
    Cant really buy expansives figurines to make a collection ^^''

    But the plush Yoshi exist in multiple colours and a true collector of course needs one of every colour ;)

    Jokes aside, I'm pretty neutral to this.
    Kind of surprise that they haven't Amiibo almost every collectable item like this. Then again, that would raised the price of them.

    iirc, the one missing was the green one...
    I think thats what he said
    When he was searching for it, it was always priced as "out of stock"

    Welp, since @Foxi4 deleted my post, I'll have to tell you what it was
    It was a picture of Uhcakip, from Pokemon.EXE , a creepypasta about Pikachu :P

    Seriously, it was much much alike to that figurine

    If they make a Lotad I'll be sure to get it. Let us hope that the rest of these series won't be so dead-looking.

    I also saw a rumour that the Super Mario and Zelda series may get funkos as well... Lets hope they don't. >_<

    These are signs of self harm. Look at Robin Williams. He always looked so happy, yet he was the opposite. So much that he took his own life. Is there a Pokemon suicide hotline? Maybe baulbasaur can cheer him up.

    Oh no... Now I have to look at even more of these little ugly things? Have you any idea how many Pokemon there are? (I don't honestly think they'd make them all lol)

    I personally don't appreciate them but can't deny their popularity and don't doubt how it will increase with Pokemon in the line up. A slam dunk of a deal, for sure.

    I dont think there will be all pokemon available in a single market
    I think most of the most popular pokemon are gonna hit shelves
    While the others are gonna be sold online

    But that's just what I think
