Due to the rules of social distance imposed by the spread of Covid-19, the 8th edition of the Pop! Fest - Funko Pop and Related Collectors Meeting, the main event for Funko Pop doll aficionados in São Paulo, could not be held on May 29 as planned.
But that did not discourage the organizers, who decided to air a virtual edition of the event. The first Pop! Virtual Fest happens this weekend, from 10am on the 19th (Friday) until 10pm on the 21st of June (Sunday), numa parceria com a General Geek, which has been consolidating itself as the main marketplace platform for geek products today.
In an area specially dedicated to the event, about 20 vendors will offer regular, exclusive and rare Funko Pops, all at discounted prices.
With this solution, we keep the flame of Pop burning! Fest and managed to meet an old demand from collectors who are unable to attend face-to-face editions, explains the event organizer, artist George Tutumi.
To maintain interactivity between the participants, one of the great attractions of the face-to-face editions, throughout the virtual event lives in the channel Whitebeard Uncle to publicize promotions and carry out drawings for pieces donated by salespeople. The schedule with lives will be available in the virtual event area itself.
