Is this a documentary or an ad?
2 August 2018 | by jthauleSee all my reviews

I'm not a huge funko fan. I have four funko pops, and they're amusing. But, I enjoy toys so I figured I'd watch another toy related documentary.

From the get go the documentary states that this is not about the toys, so I was a bit confused, but OK. It was about the company. Fine.

But as it trailed along it got to be more and more of a comercial ad for the funko brand, and not so much a documentary. And it was actually quite boring as such. Amusing to see the different people they had dug up to represent the fans, but I'm not sure if these were endorsements or examples of actual fans.
