Funko Introduces Virtual Con in Wake of Emerald City Comic Con Coronavirus Postponement

In a laudable act of caution, Emerald City Comic Con has postponed its annual event, previously scheduled for this upcoming weekend, until Summer 2020. While this is a responsible move to keep communication of disease at a minimum as best the organizers can, it leaves some vendors and planned attendees in the lurch.

For instance, some Funatics had a burning question about how they would get their hands on convention exclusives now.

Well, Funko quickly came up with an answer. Funko is introducing Virtual Con, an online comic con dreamed up as a consolation for a lack of ECCC this weekend. All exclusives will apparently be available

From Funko:

Emerald City Comic Con has been postponed to Summer 2020, but Funko hasn’t forgotten the fans! Funatics are invited to celebrate through Funko Virtual Con, our 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 13thThose 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. There is not currently a way to guarantee items purchased have convention stickers over shared stickers.

Also, don’t let your cosplay go waste – post a photo of the cosplay you were planning to do for ECCC on Twitter or Instagram throughout this week with #FunkoVirtualCon to play along!
