J.A.F.O. - Just Another FUNKO Observer's Page - Prototypes





What is a Prototype ?
A True Prototype some might say is unique. One of many to come.
Others may say it is a True prototype is it never gets made , and it is the only one.
These are examples of the only ones, one of a kind each !

How many Prototypes of an item can there be ?
We know in the "Becker" era of Funko, some items there is only one
of the items that were never brought into production. Then usually there
is up to 3 of an item. Some were made of Vinyl, some very rare ones were made of Wax.

Now in the "Modern" age of Funko, we see at least 6 of a given prototype to
that particular item. The latest problem for collectors is "Fake" proto's, while
some are stripped of the paint, other are made by another means unknown. Could be
made from a mold, or even at the same plant in China. There are a few different ways
to tell a fake. I will post some picture examples as soon as I can get them together.
Below are just some of the proto's Funatics have sent me pictures of !!
