"Funko" Fucks Up

Funko, the company producing millions of vinyl 'Funko Pop' figures since 2010, are prepping to dump over $30 million worth of their collectible product into a a landfill, "...because it would be cheaper to trash than to sell...":

"..based on increased inventory growth year over year, 'Funko' made more than they could sell in 2022. 

"Projecting $150 million in cost savings for 2023, most of that money will come from cutting the cost of keeping overstocked inventory on hand..." 

Funko’s warehouses are currently overstocked with five inch 'chibi' replicas of 'Machine Gun Kelly', 'Spider-Man', 'Pikachu' and a whole lot more.

With over 8,366 different Funko Pop designs, the most valuable, collectible Funko Pop is the plastic glow-in-the-dark 'Alex DeLarge Clockwork Orange Funko', without holding his cane, that sold November 2022 for $60,000 (usd).
