A "Vaulted" Funko Pop is a term used to describe a Funko Pop figure that has been discontinued by the company and is no longer in production. When Funko discontinues a figure, it becomes much more difficult to find and can sometimes fetch a higher price due to its rarity and scarcity. This is what makes a "Vaulted" Funko Pop so special and sought after by collectors.
The term "Vault" refers to the idea of putting something away for safekeeping, which is essentially what happens when Funko discontinues a figure. The figure is no longer produced or available for purchase, and is considered a collector's item due to its scarcity and rarity.
Vaulted Funko Pops can be especially valuable to collectors who are trying to complete a specific set or series, as it can be difficult to find a discontinued figure once it has been put into the "vault." In addition, some of the most popular and iconic characters from franchises like Star Wars, Marvel, and Harry Potter are often put into the vault, making them even more sought after by collectors.
