Funko POP! are one of the hottest collectibles in the world right now, convention organizers said in a news release, and this year “we are opening up the show to Funko collectible dealers. Two great pop culture collectibles at one show.”

Funko products can be found everywhere, organizers said, and with many pop culture icons becoming POP! figures they enjoy wide appeal. Funko recently teamed up with the Orange-based PEZ Candy Inc. and released POP! + PEZ collectible candy dispensers. “This new cross collectible is bridging the gap between the two pop icon manufacturers,” organizers said.

“The family-friendly event will surely have something for everyone. Kids will love the amazing assortment of superhero dispensers, princesses, emojis and those connected to popular animated movies and TV shows,” organizers said. “Parents and grandparents will enjoy seeing colorful characters like Bozo, Mary Poppins, Popeye and the Flintstones from their childhood.”
