Funko Pop! Releases Line Of Healthcare Workers To Honour Their Work During Pandemic
Funko Pop! has made millions of dollars off creating collectible toy figurines from all walks of life.
If it's in popular culture, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a Funko Pop! to support it.
But the company has decided to give back to the community that has helped us during the coronavirus pandemic.
Funko has unveiled a new line of figurines that look like healthcare workers.
"In honour of the first responders on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Funko is excited to announce the new line of Pop! Heroes to commemorate the nurses and doctors who are giving their all to help treat patients," the company said in a statement.
The toys will be put in the Heroes category, meaning they'll star alongside the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. At the end of the day, these people really have been our superheroes over the past few months, ensuring that we survive through Covid-19.
They've been pulling extraordinary hours and have worked tirelessly on the people who have streamed through the A&E doors every day.
Funko has made a donation to the non-profit organisation GlobalGiving, which connects other nonprofits with donors and companies around the world in order to provide them with the tools they need.
The release of the healthcare worker figurine will also allow shoppers to make a donation of their own.
The line comes with two male and two female healthcare workers and they'll be shipped out from October.
