When it comes to toys, nothing beats a good ol’ Funko Pop. From the Marvel universe to Star Wars, there’s a Funko Pop for every kind of collector. And now, I bring you their top 10 glow-in-the-dark figures even more special with these ten rare additions to the lineup:
Top 10 Funko Pop Glow-in-the-Dark:
Super Saiyan Goku
Dragon Ball Z fans worldwide cheered whenever they saw their favorite hero in his Super Saiyan 1 form.
They called him “Kakarot” or “Goku.” Goku’s famous orange Gi, blue undershirt, and Supreme Kai boots are also shown on this popular Funko, making it a must-have for Pop collectors.
In the 1990s, Goku’s blonde hair with spikes became very popular.
During an exhausting battle with his early arch-enemy Freiza, the hero channeled divine energy, turning him into the first known Super Saiyan and changing Anime’s history forever.
Glowing One (Fallout)
Fans of Bethesda’s Fallout series will recognize this scary figure as a “Glowing One,” which people call a radiation-sick ghoul in that world.
During gameplay, they usually fight the players with brute force while using a protect themselves by releasing massive bursts of radiation from their bodies.
People think these wild animals used to be humans but have been exposed to so much toxic radiation that it has messed up their bodies and taken away their ability to think like humans.
For a Pop collector, these undead monsters are a must-have. Unfortunately, this variant is tough to find with its slimy green body that can glow at night.
Alex DeLarge’s devilish glare has scared moviegoers since 1971.
This rare Funko exclusive based on Stanley Kubrick’s dystopian hit A Clockwork Orange recently added to the national film registry, can scare their shelves.
This story’s main character is known for being put through “the Ludovico technique,” a mind-control experiment after he goes to prison for a string of murders.
Once he’s free, the people he hurt in the past come back into his life to scare him, even as he has fleeting thoughts of making things right.
Giving this Funko Alex’s signature “Droog” outfit was a real treat for fans who like attention to detail.
Cthulhu, one of H.P. Lovecraft fans’ favorite monsters, became a Funko vinyl figure in 2016.
This statue is based on the classic short story “The Call of Cthulhu,” written in the 1950s and became a game in 2019.
It shows the Great Dreamer’s squid-like head, green, scaly arms and legs, and a humanoid body.
This Pop was only sold online by Entertainment Earth for a limited time in 2016, and it is still a sort of valuable treasure for anyone who gets it, selling for almost $40 across the internet.
Cozmic Cap ‘N Crunch
This Funko Pop is a recreation of the green, cycloptic Martian from the 1999 cereal Cozmic Crunch.
It looks a lot like the well-known cereal character Cap’n Crunch. Remembering the old ads, you may remember that the Cozmic Crunch had sweet marshmallows guaranteed to turn white milk green.
Even though the series ended in the 1990s and only came back for a short time in 2012, thanks to Funko, this space cereal friend will live on forever.
After it came out in 2019, Marvel Studio’s The Avengers: Endgame broke all kinds of records, which gave Funko a chance to re-create some of the most talked-about scenes from the movie.
This pop shows Tony Stark’s last moment as an Avenger.
Right after he beats Thanos, he raises his Infinity Gauntlet, says, “I am Iron Man,” and then snaps his enemy out of existence.
The fact that Tony’s Infinity Gauntlet and ARC Reactor glow, but the rest of him doesn’t, is something that fans like about this figure.
Since 2005, the Funko company has followed a series of new toy licensing agreements with the release of Freddy Funko, their new mascot, whose face can be seen on Pop vinyl figures almost everywhere they are sold today.
Freddy is usually shown as a boy with freckles, red hair, a blue bow tie, and a golden crown.
However, this Pop figure is one of several different versions of Freddy.
It shows him with purple hair, dressed as Buzz Lightyear, and wearing his trademark crown.
Some people don’t know that Freddy Pops are hard to find and buy, which makes them a great addition to any fan’s collection.
Holographic Darth Maul
This Darth Maul pop came out in 2012 as an exclusive for the first Los Angeles Comic-Con.
It looks like one of the most famous duel scenes from 1999’s The Phantom Menace.
However, this Pop allows Star Wars fans to remember Maul’s greatest on-screen battle without watching the movie.
Instead, it shows Maul’s angry face, his signature double-bladed lightsaber, and the textures of his black Sith robes, which EA’s Battlefront II used in 2017.
Godzilla With Blue Fire
The 2014 remake of Godzilla by Gareth Edwards showed two things that the original King of Monsters never did: it could breathe bright blue fire, and it had a huge, tar-black, scaled body.
Unfortunately, this Pop vinyl figure is getting harder to find, and it’s also one of the few that glows blue instead of the usual green when the lights are off.
Funko figures were selling for as much as $70 online, which may have put a strain on the wallets of Funko collectors.
However, despite the mixed to negative reviews of the 2014 film, Godzilla is still the huge, fire-breathing lizard shown in popular media for fans to enjoy.
The god-like blue leader of the Minutemen, Dr. Manhattan, first appeared in the hit graphic novel “Watchmen” by DC Comics in 1987.
However, it wasn’t until the middle of the 2010s that he was finally made into a vinyl figure.
The statue shows Manhattan’s chiseled body with his arms outstretched and his famous black speedo on.
Even though Dr. Manhattan isn’t labeled as a “glow” figure on the box, fans have found that he does glow in the dark over the years.
As a result, he is often used as an example of how well some Pops glow in the dark compared to others.
Before you go…
The Funko brand doesn’t look like it will slow down any time soon, and some of these popular figures are only getting more popular, so fans won’t want to miss out on these glowing collectibles.
