Currently maintaining the largest portfolio of licenses of any other company in the world, Funko serves as a leader in the consumer products landscape, generating traction amongst pop culture-centric audiences from every generation. Having cultivated strong relationships with big-box retailers, Funko is now leveraging relationships with new and exciting retail partners, like Macy’s. While always exploring fresh opportunities to approach brand partnerships, Macy’s is also expanding into new categories, including Funko collectibles, to continue showing up for younger audiences in new and authentic ways.


Pushing the retail landscape and shifting the competition, representatives from both Macy’s and Funko will discuss their newfound partnership, highly-curated retail collection, and how they are joining forces to creatively appeal to younger consumers.
