Re: Funko Sofubi?!?!? You make some good points. And I do think there are folks who gravitated towards sofubi purely on the basis of exclusivity/rarity. I started out collecting KR western vinyl, but got hooked on Japanese makers years ago when I started getting the toys in my hand, because there was a very obvious difference in quality. Not because I wanted to be in some exclusive 'club'. I love open runs, big Medicom releases, etc. because of the stress-free purchase experience. But I think that everyone subconsciously or otherwise likes rare, hard-to-find items to some degree. If you don't agree, try collecting nothing but open runs and stuff that is easy to come by. It's not nearly as much fun. I am not anti-Funko by any means. I am not even on IG so the deluge of Funko posts don't bother me. I just find these to be an obvious and poorly executed cash-in on a trend. But yes, there are MUCH worse toys to be had.
