A few weeks ago, Mattel announced that they’d be releasing a set of hero figures that shine a light on the first responders to the COVID-19 Crisis. Now, Funko has just announced that they will also be releasing figures to commemorate the nurses and doctors who have been working hard to treat hundreds of thousands of people who have fallen ill with the COVID-19 virus.
Along with the release of the new Pop! Heroes figures, Funko has also donated an undisclosed amount to GlobalGiving, a 501c non-profit organization based in the United States that provides a global crowdfunding platform for grassroots charitable projects.
