New York Comic Con Interview: Funko Breaks Down the Pop! Vinyl Figure Sensation

"If you like Batman, of course we got that. But if you like 'Supernatural' or 'Orphan Black,' or something that's a little deeper and a little more narrow, we've still got it"

New York Comic Con 2016 is going down right now, as we tweet, and Fuse dropped by Funko's space for a chat with Mark Robben, the toy company's director of marketing. He broke down the history of Funko and its über-successful Pop! line, displaying a slew of characters in the process.

"This is now no longer just a collecting thing that is really kind of niche," Robben told us. "Now it's hitting everybody, there's literally a license for everybody. If you like Batman, of course we got that. But if you like Supernatural or Orphan Black, or something that's a little deeper and a little more narrow, we've still got it." Robben noted that the Golden Girls and Star Wars Pop! dolls are huge successes, and that a collection of Playmobil dolls are on the way.

Hit the clip to see what else Funko has in store, and keep an eye on Fuse.tv for more 2016 New York Comic Con footage.
