For collectors, Funko Pops are a dream come true. These adorable vinyl figures feature characters from your favorite TV shows, movies, and games in their most iconic poses.
But with so many different versions of each Pop to collect, it can be hard to know which ones are worth spending your hard-earned money on (and which ones aren’t).
That’s where this list comes in! Thanks to the internet, it’s easier than ever before for people to sell fakes of popular merchandise online.
Top 5 List of Fake Funko Pops:
Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe. He’s been around for over 50 years and has become a staple in pop culture. There are many versions of Spider-Man; one is the Blacklight Spiderman.
The fake version of Spider-Man has duller colors, box designs, etc. It’s hard to tell if it’s just lousy coloring or if this is simply an unlicensed variant, but either way, it’s still not official Funko merchandise!
In case you were unaware, Batman is a popular character. And because of this, many fakes have been made. You can spot them at Target and Toys R Us. The most obvious way to tell a fake from an original is by looking at the color and the logo on the chest.
The logo should be crisper than your vision after staring at your computer screen for too long but not as crisp as a real human eye can see under normal circumstances.
Hellboy is one of the most popular characters in the Funko Pop universe. It’s not surprising then, that there are many fake Hellboy Pops out there, which makes them highly sought after by collectors looking to complete their collections.
Unfortunately, many of these fakes are of poor quality and can be easily spotted by a keen eye or even a novice collector. Here are some tips on how to spot a fake Hellboy Pop:
- Check for correct copyright information on the box; this should be located under “Made In China” on the backside of the box (if you find one without this information, consider it suspect)
- Check for paint job quality; if too smooth or shiny with no shading, then it is likely real
The second most faked Funko Pop is Deadpool, with a red suit and mask released in 2014. It’s the most common one you will find for sale on Amazon and eBay, but why is it so popular?
Well, people love Deadpool! He’s a popular character in the Marvel universe, and he has been around since 1991 when he first appeared in New Mutants #98 as a villain before becoming an anti-hero hero who fights crime while making jokes.
This Funko Pop! came out in 2014 as part of Funko’s Pop! The Vinyl Figure line features characters from all over pop culture, including movies, TV shows, video games, and comics – some of which have become highly collectible due to popularity or scarcity (such as Game Of Thrones).
1. Super Saiyan Goku
The most faked Funko Pop is one of the most popular characters in the Dragon Ball Z series. Super Saiyan Goku is not just a cartoon character—it’s also a very collectible figure, especially with glow-in-the-dark eyes and flames on his forehead. The fake version has a unique look: it has different paint on its body and eyes than the original.
