Which Falcon Funko Pop is best?

The figures vary widely, from Major League Baseball players to “Star Wars” and Marvel characters, and there are thousands to collect.

What to know before you buy a Falcon Funko Pop
It can be difficult to choose a Funko Pop toy — there are so many to choose from. You can start a collection by first asking which franchises most interest you. A keen enjoyment of Marvel means a Falcon Funko Pop could be a good starting point. What else must you consider?
To avoid a conflict with a line of Hasbro toys, all Marvel Funko Pops are bobbleheads. If you are not a fan of this look, consider a different franchise. Note that all “Star Wars” figures are also bobbleheads, for the same reason.
Collecting Funko Pops can become an obsessive hobby, and collections can get out of control. One of the biggest problems is where to put them all. Funko Pops work best when displayed together. If you plan to make an extensive collection, consider whether you have enough shelving or can add some. Funko Pops are usually only 3.75-inches tall, so custom-built shelving can hold many figures.
Funko Pops are aimed toward the collector and are not really designed for playing. They are usually limited in their production and could be profitable investments. Seeking out Funko Pops that are going out of production and not removing them from their packaging may result in figures being worth more than you paid.
What to look for in a quality falcon Funko Pop
Funko Pop uses subtle detailing techniques — rather than sophisticated molding or sculpting technology — to make its characters recognizable. For example, the Falcon from “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” is instantly recognizable as that iteration due to his goatee. Funko Pop also adds detail to the characters’ attire to make them more identifiable, but this isn’t always successful. You may want to buy only if you immediately recognize the character.
Funko Pop prides itself on character originality. Each release should be a different iteration from the last. However, they occasionally are similar, with only minor changes in accessory or pose, and these may appeal only to the serious collector.
Some Funko Pop releases protect the figures well, with premium packaging techniques. This will please the collector, but these figures tend not to be at the budget end of the price spectrum. Remember, though, you can return any figure you feel didn’t arrive in good condition.
How much you can expect to spend on a Falcon Funko Pop
Higher-priced Falcon Funko Pops may cost from $40-$50. However, figures of this character generally cost in the $20-$35 range, with some even more economically priced.
