The ongoing pandemic is forcing companies, especially toy companies, to make the best of things as physical conventions and toy fairs continue to be impossible to hold. Funko, those mega massive purveyors of pop-eyed plastic, have decided to just cut out the middle man and hold their own Funko Fair to show off all of the new bits of plastic you can fill your shelves with in 2021. It kicked off on January 19th and even has its own map, with each day of the nine day event focusing on a theme. Opening Day had a mix of properties while Day Two was anime-inspired.
Some of the highlights of opening day included new Star Wars figures from The Rise of Skywalker, keychains, Mandalorian mystery figures, and even bright pink versions of characters for Valentine’s Day.
Opening Day also revealed Harry Potter Patronus Pops (say that 10 times fast) for Snape and Dumbledore.
Funko Fair Anime Day
Anime Day brought with it plenty of goodies for fans of Naruto, One Piece, Bakugan, Dragon Ball Z, and even Hatsune Miku.
There’s still many more days left of Funko Fair left to go, so be sure to follow their Twitter for all the updates going forward. And keep an eye here as we post some of out favorite releases as they get announced!
