Funko Pop! Vinyls are taking the world by storm with their mass appeal, but why should gamers care? Let's just say, for instance, the gamers we're talking about only play video games and never watch movies or television. There is a HUGE line-up of Funko Pop! Games figures!
There are nearly 80 Funko Games figures (including special editions) so it can be pretty daunting to choose which ones to look for first.
These are the top five, easily obtainable (not including special editions), must-have Funko Pop! Vinyl Games figures that every gamer (who doesn't live under an indie-gaming rock) must have.
Can't get enough Funko Pop!? Check out my article on Four new Fallout 4 Funko Pop! Vinyl Collectibles coming soon.
There is absolutely, absolutely, no denying that the Fallout 4 hype is real. This Vault Boy figurine will keep watch for those pesky Super Mutants while you play!
Sporting the oh-so-nostalgic (nostalgic from ten minutes ago) vault jumpsuit, this little fella cannot be missed by Fallout fans. A modern-day video game icon if there ever was one.
Vault Boy is extremely common, especially with the recent release of Fallout 4. Walk into any EB Games or GameStop and you'll probably find ten!
The Gods will punish you if you don't own this Funko! Kratos looks awesome with his ash-white skin, blood-red markings, ancient Greek getup and Blades of Chaos.
Although God of War is a PlayStation exclusive series, gamers would be wrong to not include Kratos in their collection. He's so adorable, yet so fierce!
Kratos can also be found in two different special editions: Fear (Kratos' skin is black and his eyes are white) and Poseidon's Rage (Kratos is totally blue like when he uses the ability of the same name in GoW1).
"I was a Funko Pop! Games Vinyl Collectible collector like you once, then I took an arrow in the knee."
I may or may not have included the Whiterun Guard just so I could put that quote in...
Hilariously enough, if you look at the poor little guy, he really does have an arrow sticking out of his knee. Funko's just showing us that they have a sense of humor with this one, but it's a gaming fad that any collector can't be without.
From the looks of it, the special Whiterun Guard is a GameStop exclusive.
Just one of the available Assassin's Creed figurines, which also include:
Ezio Auditore da Firenze seems to be the most appropriate Pop! to add to anyone's collection. Of any of the Assassin's Creed heroes, he's appeared the most and, because of this, is the go-to mascot assassin of the series.
There was a lot of stiff competition for the final spot of this top five. Hearts had to be broken, dreams stomped into the dust, but the Big Daddy 6" Pop! prevailed.
This extra large Funko will look as menacing on your shelf as it does in-game in the original BioShock. Oh, and yes, you can get a Little Sister Funko to pair it up with.
