A popular line of Funko’s signature collectables are popping up in 2,200 AT&T stores across the U.S. and on its website.
The Everett, Wash. toymaker has teamed up with AT&T to sell its line of Pop! Game of Thrones figurines in AT&T stores. This is the first Funko has struck a deal with a telecommunications company.
“We are very excited that AT&T and its customers will now be able to display their fandom through Game of Thrones Pop! figurines,” Funko CEO Brian Mariotti said in a statement. “Funko’s new line from the hit HBO show will truly delight fans as we approach the final season of this epic hit series.”
Following a rough start as a public company, Funko has rebounded as it continues to amass a war chest of deals to produce Pop! figurines for the hottest franchises in entertainment. In addition to Game of Thrones, the company has other popular franchises like Marvel and Fortnite under its umbrella.
The company just announced plans to open its second-ever retail store in Los Angeles. The expansion of its retail footprint is another example of the company’s momentum over the last year.
Funko’s stock price returned to its IPO level last summer after tanking upon going public. The stock has since risen another 62 percent, and gotten the attention of some big names in the finance world, like Jim Cramer of Mad Money.
