Funko Announces ‘DIY’ Pop! Vinyl Figures And Green ECCC 2014 Variants
Over the past few years Funko's 3.75" tall Pop! Vinyl line has delivered tons of licensed characters, but fans who wanted to customize the figures had to fully paint over existing toys to achieve do-it-yourself effects. That changes March 28-30 at Emerald City Comicon 2014, with Seattle-based Funko unveiling its new line of blank DIY Pop! Vinyl figures in both a standard white color, plus a convention-exclusive green version.
The Emerald Green DIY Pop! vinyl figures will be limited to 300 pieces (150 male, 150 female), and be released 50-per-day through the three-day show. All four figures will debut at ECCC Booth 117, although fans who can't make the show can preorder the blank white versions of the vinyl DIY male and female figures for $8.99 a pop through Entertainment Earth and other online retailers. Those who preorder will have to wait until April or May to get their hands on the figures, however.
On top of the release, Funko will be auctioning off more than 20 DIY Pop! vinyl figures customized by Funko artists and other talent, with funds benefitting a local children's hospital. The auction will be held on eBay by ECCC sometime after the 2014 show concludes.
