Funko to kick off the New Year with all-virtual Funko Fair event

The pop culture specialist, Funko, is kicking off the New Year with the launch of its first Funko Fair, a two-week long virtual event that aims to introduce fans and partners to new products expected to hit retail later this year.

Funko has already confirmed a line-up of licensing partners for the event, including Warner Bros and DC, The Pokemon Company International, NBCUniversal, Five Nights at Freddy’s and more. There will also be days designated for Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars branded products by Funko.

“Funko is always discovering new ways to surprise and delight our fans by bringing the best of pop culture directly to them,” said Brian Mariotti, chief executive officer at Funko. “Funko Fair is all about virtually showcasing the newest products that our incredible creative team has been working on for the past several months.

“This is a terrific opportunity to usher in 2021 with a fresh slate of consumer products that celebrate imagination and pop culture.”

Funko’s lifestyle division, Loungefly, will also be showcasing its latest accessories via Funko Fair.

The event will kick off on January 19th with a new episode of FUN TV, a monthly short form production co-hosted by Brian Mariotti and Mike Becker.
