Most websites have price guides for Funko Pops. A majority of prices differ from website to website. If you’re collecting Pops, it’s best to go with an average price and reduce by 10%. Example: If there are 3 Pops ranging in price from $110, $100 & $90, the average price of that Pop would be $100 ($110+$100+$90/3). Now take the average and reduce by 10%. So for this example a good price of the Pop would be $90 ($100*10%=$90)
Mostly at ComicCon, Funko Pop meetups and on auction websites selling Funko Pops. But only buy from trusted online sellers. Be sure to check reviews.
