Funko is more than a line of toys — it’s a cult, a movement, and its popularity has changed how we hunt down collectibles and exclusives. We know, because everyone on the CON GUY team has become a member of this cult. This week, we open up that toy box and see what’s inside. Plus, Ben gives us the latest news, Derek gives a rundown of conventions to watch for, Katie provides convention updates.
News from the New York Toy Fair:
The New York Toy Fair is the biggest event of the year for tapping into the $27B U.S. domestic toy market. The 117th annual Toy Fair New York opened its doors last week at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, and we learned all the new toys and exclusives that will crashing store shelves — not to mention comic cons and fan conventions — this year.
The CON GUY show is LIVE most weeks at 10:15 p.m. Pacific Time… we broadcast from the heart of Hollywood!
We LOVE for viewers to watch live and send in questions in the Youtube comments. But you can also download anytime at any of these locations…. we’re all over the place!
