SDCC 2020 X FUNKO VIRTUAL CON 3.0 PROGRAM GUIDE
Welcome Funatics and convention goers! We are excited to be able to connect and celebrate with you via Funko’s third virtual convention. Keeping the spirit alive, Funko will be hosting events from Sunday July 19th to Saturday July 25th. Here is the day by day breakdown of what Funko has planned during SDCC.
SUNDAY JULY 19TH
Funko and eBay have partnered to host a special charity auction of rare items, a few of which some collectors may recognize. We’ll give you a hint at a small selection of what will be auctioned. Fright Night Freddy waves to fans, while two 10-inch protos of Freddy Funko Dorbz hold their foods of choice. This may be your chance to collect items from Fundays past or secure your ticket to Fundays 2021. All proceeds from the auction are being donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. This non-profit organization was founded in 1940 and strives to educate while also taking legal action to achieve racial justice, an inclusive society, and to eliminate racial bias in the criminal justice system. Funko wants to give fans an opportunity to get special collectibles and experiences, while also supporting a good cause that is at the forefront of our hearts and minds.
8 AM PDT Charity Auction goes live on eBay
MONDAY JULY 20TH
Fans get a chance to see behind the scenes footage of the Funko art process via time-lapse video artist sketches and sculpts. These videos will be spread throughout the day between 9 AM to 9 PM.
