LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) December 08, 2020
Ranker, known as the world’s leading publisher for fan-powered rankings on just about everything with over one billion votes, has announced its rankings of the top Funko Pop! Vinyl characters of all-time in several iconic and pop-culture categories. Just in time for the holidays, thousands of Funko Pop! Vinyl fans worldwide cast their votes for their popular, however niche, perspectives on the toy line.
Funko's Pop! figures cater to essentially every pop-culture audience and fan base imaginable. Whether your Pop! preference is old-school German expressionism, independent art house projects, 1970s classic sci-fi, obscure cult classics, Oscar-winning fare, or Golden Age horror, Ranker harnesses the wisdom of the crowd and the opinions of millions of super fans to be far more relevant and predictive than the opinion of one super-fan or reviewer.
“It’s fun to dive into the fascinating world of a niche toy phenomenon like Funko Pop!,” said Mike Filliben, COO of Ranker. “In fact, when you walk the halls of Ranker headquarters, desks are decorated with Funko Pops so much that you can tell by the characters who sits where and what they might work on - there are stark differences in what the Graveyard Shift, Anime Underground, or Total Nerd crew displays on their desks.”
Here’s what Ranker voters had to say: Note: These are the rankings at the time of this release and are subject to change with continued voting.
