I didn't realize they had headquarters up here.

Funko will soon be expanding to downtown Everett to move its headquarters and offer a tourist destination for the toymaker's global fanbase.

Brian Mariotti bought the local company 12 years ago when it was primarily a bobblehead company. He has since evolved it into a bonafide pop culture craze thanks to the Comicon crowd and changes in viewing habits.

"Each and every year since we've owned it, its grown," says Mariotti. "We've never had a year where we slipped backward, but the last five years the growth has been exponential. A lot of that is because  pop culture, as a whole, has changed."

The favorite items come from its POP line, which makes even the goriest creatures look cute. The company has gained licensing rights to some of the most stable franchises like Star Wars, Marvel, DC Comics, NFL, Barbie and Disney, widening its appeal to kids and women. Several years ago, 95 percent of Funko's customers were men. Today, 55 percent of women make up the company's customer base.

Just FYI guys... Hot Topic is doing 30% off online today, and they have a ton of Pops available that I haven't seen in some time and are still going for at least $40 on Amazon. I'm getting the pink-and-white Harley from last Valentine's Day and the 2015 Comikaze Stan Lee.

I can't find either of those on the site. They must have went quick. I have the Harley but I really want the Stan.

Nope I'm at 583. I have no time but plenty of expendable money so it's become my primary hobby since it takes little time to buy them and display them. If I had more time to play video games I probably wouldn't buy so many.

So you're telling me you've spent nearly $6000 on these fucking things?

Guy, we need to have an intervention

Not nearly that much. On average i spend 7 on a pop. You can get a lot cheap. Like toy wars just did a $5 warehouse sale so I bought 10.

But yeah in the last 4 years I've spent a lot. The price guide value is $8145. Ive also had a compulsive nature for collecting. Thankfully it's only ever one thing at a time.
