Though Funko’s bread and butter is undoubtedly their signature POP! vinyl figures, their line-up has expanded to include vehicles that fit the trademark collectible toys. The Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler, the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, and more have all been turned into what are called Funko POP Rides.
But there’s also the Funko POP Deluxe line, which gives some larger, more unconventional vehicles the POP treatment. Most of them are Star Wars vehicles like Poe Dameron’s X-wing or Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter, but now the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy is being turned into the biggest hunk of plastic in Funko’s POP Deluxe line.

A batch of new Funko POPs from this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home have been unveiled, and they reveal some very interesting details about several new characters.
