Below is my personal list of the best 20 Funko pops announced in the past year. I say announced because some of them might not hit the shelves until 2020, and all of them are taken from the Funko website so might miss a few exclusives or chase versions from other sites. There have been a lot of pops announced in the past 12 months, the company is really blowing up, so choosing 20 was tough… Originally I was only going to do a top 10!
These are in no particular order, other than the top ones being older than the bottom ones (although it’s not strictly in date order either), and I’m not going to go in to why I like them, as the reason for each will pretty much be, “just because I do”.

What were your favorite announcements of the year? I know there were a LOT and I’ve missed a huge number… I think i could have easily done a top 30 or 40 of the year as it really has been a busy one! Especially if I’d have also included movie moments or rides in this list.
