    In my Opinion, Funko shouldn’t have bothered with playmobile. I don’t see this line becoming popular at all. My bets are on it will be like Mymoji. Funko still makes em, but only a few want them. If you like these, that’s great. It’s just not my cup of tea.

    Should’ve gone with a more…well…a company that isn’t a children’s thing. Don’t get me wrong, kids get Funko products, but most of Funko items are collectibles, except for their home and clothing items. I don’t know if there’s an adult out there that collects Playmobil, but if people do, then there’s at least one reason for this.

      Playmobil actually has a reasonable collector audience, so it doesn’t surprise me too much that the two forces have joined. I do think it’s borderline esoteric, but certainly no more so than something like Golden Girls or Big Trouble in Little China.

    Great idea, Playmobil is a total success in Europe, but in that scale… Personally I prefer the original height.

    I think there is an audience out there for this . . . I picked up some from Wildcat Toys.
    I also agree on the height – I wish the scale was the original figure height rather than the adult collectible 6″ version.
