Funko is not involved with Vic Mignogna’s Pop!-inspired ‘Animation Figurine’
On August 29, 2020 at Ultracon in South Florida, voice actor Vic Mignogna showed off a prototype of an “Animation Figurine” based on his career. The doll resembles a Funko Pop! and features allusions to 10 different characters he has voiced, including Edward Elrich (Fullmetal Alchemist) and Broly (Dragonball Z).
Mignogna was intentionally vague during the reveal, only saying that he was, “talking with Funko and some other companies to have [the figure] made, so [it] can join your Pop! collection.”
When the news broke on Twitter, details were quickly muddled. Some people congratulated Mignogna on the deal with Funko, while others questioned the legitimacy of the announcement.
GONZO.MOE reached out to Funko for a comment, and they had this to say:
“We are not in any conversations with Vic Mignogna on creating a figure of him. This figure is not a Funko Pop! Official announcements are posted on our social channels and on our website.”
There is no information regarding how many of the Pop!-inspired toy currently exist. A prototype was sold at Ultracon in a silent auction.
