A closer look at The Pop Dungeon
An interview with Corbin – The owner of the business

Introduce yourself and tell us your story.

Hello, I am Corbin. I am the owner of The Pop Dungeon. I personally started collecting Pop! vinyl in spring 2015. My primary motivation to publish a website was essentially based around the fact a lot of collectors in the Funko community are actively getting scammed. In attempt to minimize the amount of scammers in the social media community, I decided to create an online store where collectors could safely purchase exclusive Funko pops domestically & internationally.

What are you goals for your company?

I am striving towards creating the ultimate online pop dungeon experience & eventually a physical location in Las Vegas, Nevada too.

What makes you stand out in the Toy Industry?

I believe the content I create makes me stand out the most in the Toy Industry, as well as the creativity I try to maintain throughout the content I post.

The Pop Dungeon Offer exclusives from a variety of retailers and outlets under one roof!

How do you utilise Toy Photography as part of your marketing?

Personally, I enjoy taking photos. It comes as a complete bonus to me that I am blessed with the opportunity to have the ability do what I enjoy, as well as provide a closer look at my product outside the box. This appeals to both in-box collectors as well as out-of-box collectors. This allows me to reach both audiences and market my brand a lot better.

A great place to get your hands on those harder to get grails and vaulted pops and Dorbz- Be quick as they often sell out fast as the demand is huge!

How do you think Toy Photography is perceived by the wider popular culture community?

I believe toy photography is a progressing form of art which is only now being accepted by popular culture because of social media outlets like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, to name a few. It’s a unique community overflowing with “big kids” who continued to pursue their love for toys.

A wide variety of Funko’s popular Dorbz range are also available over on the site.

What are some of the defining moments from your brands history?

A defining moment for The Pop Dungeon has to be the launch of our website last August 2016. As well as scheduling a re-occurring Funko trade event monthly with the local comic shop & establishing a fan base in Las Vegas.

What can we expect to see from you in 2017?

I am pleased to announce I will soon be carrying more Funko product than ever! This will include more exclusives, commons, replacement boxes, & much more! Stay tuned! Plenty to look forward to! I also have some tricks up my sleeve for the community.
