PRESS: "Marvel and Funko have announced they will be joining together to celebrate Captain America’s 75th Anniversary - and the United Service Organization’s 75th Anniversary - with Operation: ReDorbz. This July, Funko and Marvel will host a charity event in San Diego as part of the festivities surrounding San Diego Comic Con. As part of the momentous milestones, Marvel and Funko have gathered gifted artists from Marvel Entertainment, The Walt Disney Company, Funko and beyond to bring their own original twists and takes to 18-inch Captain America “jumbo” Dorbz figures. Following the event in San Diego, each and every one-of-a-kind figure will be auctioned on eBay beginning July 21st, with 100% of proceeds going to the United Service Organization (USO), a nonprofit, charitable corporation that supports US soldiers."
PRESS CONTINUED: "75 of the custom figures will be on display at Funko’s San Diego offices during Comic Con, starting 10am, July 21st. Following a private, 1940s-themed gallery showing, each of the figures on display and approximately 200 additional submissions will be available for auction on eBay. Each vinyl figure stands 18” tall - the largest Dorbz figures ever created by Funko – not yet available on the market."
(Cheers for the headsup, Katrina!)
