So, what are Mini Funko Pops?

Great things come in small packages, and this is especially true with Mini Funko POPs. But what are Mystery Minis, and how are they different from official Funko POP figures?

What are Mystery Minis?

Funko's Mystery Minis are small vinyl figures depicting characters and idols from pop culture, including those from leading franchises such as Disney, Marvel, Frozen, and DC Comics. They were first released in 2014 and have continued to soar in popularity.
Each Funko Mini is packaged in a blind mystery box, so the collector does not know which character is inside until the big reveal. With this in mind, you never know which gem you’ll get when shopping for Mystery Minis, making it especially exciting when you find the figure you were hoping for!
How big are Funko POP Mystery Minis?
Funko Mystery Minis are approximately 2.5 to 3 inches tall, making them larger than POP keyrings and POP buddies but smaller than standard POP Vinyl figures, POP Rides, and Jumbo POPs.
How are Mystery Minis different from Funko POP figures?
Funko Mystery Minis are much smaller than Funko POP figures, which are approximately between 4 and 5 inches tall and feature oversized bobbleheads and eyes.
Moreover, Standard Funko POPs are packaged in unique, branded boxes, allowing collectors to display their POP characters without removing them from their boxes. Mystery Minis need to be completely unwrapped to reveal the character inside.
How many Mystery Minis are there?
There are hundreds of Mystery Minis to collect, with characters ranging from the most popular movies and comic books to leading franchises worldwide! So, whether you’re an avid Disney fan or a gaming-obsessed collector, you’ll easily find a collection to peak your interest.
Each Funko Mystery Mini collection contains 12 to 17 different collectable characters. Some collections contain rare figures, such as limited edition variations of previous figures and characters with different designs, outfits and glow-in-the-dark finishes.
What are the Mini Funko POPs called?
Mini Funko POPs are also called Mystery Minis, POP minis, and miniature Funkos.
Why are Mini Funkos so popular?
Mini Funko POP figures are popular with adults and children, allowing fans to celebrate their favourite franchise characters in adorable fun-sized forms. Moreover, their blind box packaging creates an addictive experience that collectors chase, especially when revealing a character they’ve wanted for a long time!

Which Funko Pop is the rarest?

Funko Mystery Minis might not be as rare as their vinyl POP siblings. However, that does not mean that they aren’t as widely sought-after. Especially as Mystery Minis are random, making it harder to complete a collection!
Below, we’ve listed the five rarest Funko Mystery Minis on the market today, including the highest-selling POP mini to date!
The Rosita Mystery Mini
The Rositsa Mystery Mini is part of the Walking Dead collection and has been known to sell for over £300. With a 1/72 rarity, this Walking Dead Mini POP figure is difficult to get your hands on!
The Zombie Ed Mystery Mini
Shaun of the Dead is an award-winning movie, so it’s no surprise that there is a rare POP mini figure to match. The Zombie ED Mystery Mini has a rarity of 1/72 and an approximate value of £200. However, as with any collectible that is scarce in availability, this Horror exclusive continues to increase in value every year.
The Harry Potter Buckbeak Mystery Mini
The Buckbeak Mystery Mini is one of the most popular Minis ever released and is a sought-after addition to any Harry Potter fan’s collection. It was released exclusively to Hot Topic and has previously sold for over £500!
Han Solo (Flight Outfit)
A renowned depiction of the beloved Star Wars character, the Han Solo Mini POP is one of the popular figures on the market, with an estimated value of £530.
Phoenix (Transparent Flames)
A beloved comic book character, Phoenix is one of the longest-standing identities in the Marvel landscape. So, it is perhaps no surprise that the Phoenix (Transparent Flames) POP mini has the highest sale price to date, with a recent price of approximately £720.
