Funko Gives Fans A Virtual Convention with ECCC Postponed
A lot of cancelations are happening lately due to the public reaction to the coronavirus. One of those events was Emerald City Comic Con and we were all waiting on to get our hands on some Funko Pop exclusives. From Pop Rides, Pop Towns, Pop Pins, and much more, us fans were ready to expand our collections once again with some exclusive collectibles. Funko does not want to let us down so they are giving us our own very virtual convention! This live streaming event will be taking place over multiple places to connect with fans on a new level with games, giveaways, and prizes. Everything starts tomorrow Wednesday, March 11 and ends Friday, March 13th where all ECCC Exclusives will be available online at the FunkoShop! This is a great way to have fans be one with the convention and I can't wait to watch. If this virtual con is a success who knows what this will mean for future conventions. While the main conventions will still go one it'll be nice for fans who can't make it to the actual location get to be one with the family.
The following is the release of all the details for the upcoming Virtual Con.
Funko's First Virtual Convention!
Emerald City Comic Con has been postponed to Summer 2020, but Funko hasn't forgotten the fans! Funatics are invited to celebrate through Funko's first ever virtual convention. Funko will be hosting multiple livestreams to connect with the Funko Family, play games, host giveaways, and award prizes to Funatics. All ECCC exclusive products will be available on Funko's online store on Friday March 13th. Those who won the Funko lottery for first chances to purchase convention exclusives, be on the lookout for an email from Reedpop regarding details about the adjusted first purchase experience.
