Funko Unveils SpongeBob, Batman and Hello Kitty Pride 2020 Pop! Figures

Funko has partnered with ViacomCBS Consumer Products, Warner Bros and Sanrio on a collection of new Pop figures in support of the It Gets Better Project and the work they do with the LGBTQ+ community. Indeed, SpongeBob SquarePants, Batman and Hello Kitty Pops have been given a rainbow makeover that looks absolutely fabulous.

In addition to the rainbow coloring, the images of the Pops seems to indicate that they will also be translucent (see the close-up of SpongeBob below), though Funko hasn't confirmed this. Needless to say, the effect would be stunning. The SpongeBob figure is inspired by the iconic 'rainbow' scene from the series.

"Funko Supports Pride!

Our FUNKO PRIDE POP! collection is a celebration of inclusivity and acceptance. Funko supports the LGBTQ+ community and rejects intolerance and discrimination. At Funko, FUN is for EVERYONE! A donation from Funko has also been made to the It Gets Better Project, an organization that uplifts, empowers, and connects LGBTQ+ youth around the globe, in support of this program. The It Gets Better Project inspires people to share their stories and remind the next generation of LGBTQ+ youth that hope is out there, and it will get better.

Show your support and pride with these special edition rainbow collectibles: Pop! Batman, Pop! Hello Kitty, Pop! SpongeBob.

We would like to thank our licensing partners, Nickelodeon-Viacom, Sanrio, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC for their partnership and support in the development of the first Funko Pride collection.

Coming soon!"
