BTS’s ARMY rejoice for your memorabilia collection are about to be updated with Funko’s latest release. Earlier in June, Funko took to Twitter to unveil their latest collection inspired by BTS’ ‘Butter’.
The memorabilia collection closely features the members of BTS, donning the same outfit and pose as they did in the ‘Butter’ music video (MV). Here’s more information:
Funko Pop! Rocks: BTS – Butter
The Funko Pop X BTS Butter collection comes in a pack of seven vinyl figurines. These figurines feature the seven members of BTS: Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.
Each figurine is 4 to 4.25 inches tall, and they are a replica of the members. They are dressed in black and white suits – the same suits they sport in their ‘Butter’ MV. The figurines are meticulously crafted so you can spot intricate details like Jungkook’s eyebrow piercing and tattoos.
Jimin’s iconic multi-coloured rainbow hair and dangling silver earrings were also replicated in the figurines. Suga’s figurine has black hair and a black suit with silver accents. J-Hope was also presented in a black suit with blonde hair.
V’s figurine has details like a brown mullet, silver and gold accessories, and long eyelashes. RM’s figurine features a black suit, pink hair, and gold accessories. Jin’s figurine dons a white suit with a gold accent and brown hair.
These figurines are holding up mugshot signs. The mugshot signs show the member’s name and their birth dates. As an easter egg, the mugshot signs have unique number combinations which represent dates and meanings that are significant to the ARMYs.
An example is the number “141018” on Jimin’s sign representing the group’s first tour in Seoul.
Not the First BTS X Funko Pop! Collection
This is not the first time Funko has released a BTS-themed collection. In 2019, BTS collaborated with Funko for a collection inspired by the group’s Love Yourself concept photos.
The collection includes all seven members of the group standing in different poses. The figurines are dressed in the same clothing the BTS members wore in the Love Yourself concept photos. Besides the Love Yourself Funko Pop! collection, Funko X BTS released a ‘Dynamite’ collection too.
The ‘Dynamite’ collection features all seven members of the group in 3 ¾-inch vinyl figures. It is inspired by the band’s Grammy-nominated English-language single and music video for ‘Dynamite’. Aside from purchasing the figurines individually or in a seven-pack set, the line also includes miniaturised Funko Pop! Keychains.
You can purchase the previous Funko Pop! X BTS collections on Simply Toys. Take note that some of these collections have already been sold out.

Funko Pop! Rocks: BTS – Butter set is Walmart exclusive, and they cost US$83.88 (S$116.53) per set. You can also purchase the figurines individually for US$11.99 (S$16.66).

About BTS’ Butter Music Video
BTS’ Butter MV was released last year in May. It has since been viewed by over 777 million users on YouTube at the time of this writing. In the same year, the song made its way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
On 10 June, BTS made a comeback with its new anthology album, Proof. Barely a week after the group dropped its Proof anthology album, BTS announced an indefinite hiatus from music during FESTA (a live-streamed dinner among the members).
20 minutes into the stream, Suga suddenly mentioned that BTS will be “taking a temporary break”. They then proceeded to delve into the specifics of the hiatus.
