the story

why make a ...

The idea for the documentary came about as the filmmakers became aware of the worldwide phenom that is Funko. Born in a garage, grown to every corner of the world.


For the past 20 years, a “feeling” has been growing around this company, connected by toys, but rooted in fun, friendship and love. 2018 marks the perfect convergence of a milestone anniversary, pop culture peak awareness and global fan interaction.

This is not a “how to” for the business-minded. Neither is this a Funko commercial or fan tribute. This is an exploration of how pop culture has permeated all aspects of life, globally, through collectibles.

This is a two year study of the past 20 years of caring and sharing. Making friendships, making memories, making toys. 

Making fun.
