once upon a time Funko created ........

Postby icemanfan44 » Mon Nov 26, 2012 7:16 pm

The grandfather to the Pops, the Nodnik line. This line was replaced by Funko force which was replaced by Funko force 2.0 which was renamed Funko Pop.

Image
There were two of these Thor and Hulk two packs made. I have them both.

Image
There was one Punisher made. I have it.

Image
there was one Thing made. I have it.

Image
Some protos including two Thors.

Image
some protos including Huckleberry Hound and Captain America.

Image
Wolverine proto only two made. I have one. The piece was never produced.

all these pieces with the exception of the Wolverine were acquired from Todd. I was able to purchase these rare sets plus all his protos. Thanks to Todd and Price and thanks to everyone else who has helped me in my Nodnik quest.

I'm just glad Lamps evolved from Nodniks.. my Iron man lamp may very well be my absolute favorite piece of Funko I own. Just wish it didn't require such an odd ball bulb.

I was quite happy to track one down recently. Still looking for the 501st Trooper lamp though.

You have such a great collection, Bear. Seeing so many rare protos and toys that were never even released in one place is almost overwhelming. Thanks for explaining some of the history, too.

Do you have a thread or post that shows off more of your collection as a whole? I've only been catching some photos here and there; a collective of everything you have would be eye candy for sure.
