CEO and Director of Funko, Brian Mariotti Talks About His Collection

Brian Mariotti spoke with 425 Business about Batman, Huckleberry Hound, and why he loves the Zoolander Pop! figures so much.

The CEO and Director of Funko has been a toy collector since high school, when he started accumulating PEZ dispensers. Though unknown to Mariotti at the time, with each piece he added to his collection, he was moving one step closer to his destiny of leading Everett-based toy collectibles company Funko, which he purchased from founder Mike Becker in 2005. 

Stepping into Mariotti’s fifth-story corner office is something akin to a religious experience for individuals who are toy collectors, pop culture nerds, or, really, anyone under age 12. “Thousands. I have thousands,” Mariotti said, glancing around at the colossal array of pop culture collectibles enshrined in lighted glass cases that line his office. In fact, there isn’t much else in the room, save for a framed photograph of his 19-year-old daughter. 

425 Business asked Mariotti to share his favorite pieces and you can read about them HERE.

Funko Announces Funkoverse Board Games

Funkoverse is a collectible strategy board game based on different pop culture universes that plays similar to Settlers of Catan. The first batch will include games based on Harry Potter, Rick & Morty, DC comics and The Golden Girls in either four or two-character sets. Each variation comes with its own 3-inch figurines that can be used across different games. This means four people could play a game as Batman, Voldermort, Harley Quinn and Blanche in the Rick & Morty universe. 

Each game has its own scenario and ways to win. Every character has their own unique abilities that can help them in different ways. It will take some strategy to figure out which characters work best and how to make the most of their abilities in order to get the most points to win. 

Funkoverse will make its way to retailers in October.
