For the third consecutive year, Conan O’Brien will bring his show to San Diego to film alongside the most well known comic convention of them all. And, as it has each of the preceding years, Funko is commemorating the filming with SDCC exclusive Pop figurines in O’Brien’s likeness.
Previous figures can be found by clicking the button at the top of this page but this year’s set places Conan O’Brien smack dab in the middle of some of pop culture’s most iconic franchises. The SDCC17 exclusive checklist is as follows:
- 9 – Conan as Spider-Man
- 10 – Jedi Conan
- 11 – The Flash Conan
- 12 – White Walker Conan
- 13 – Mono Conan
The first four of these figures can be acquired by audience members attending tapings of the Conan O’Brien show. The show will film at the Spreckles Theater daily from Wednesday, July 19 through Saturday, July 22 and will air on the TBS cable network. Fans will also be able to win these figures through social activations and sponsor programs throughout the Comic Con. The Mono Conan, a black and white version of the figure, will be available exclusively through those social activations and giveaways and is considerably more rare than the others.
Conan O’Brien displayed the new figures (except for Mono Conan) on his program so demand will be high. In fact, two weeks prior to the figures even being released, eBay listings for over $100 have begun to pop up and the Batman Conan (#2) has sold for over $200 several times during the month leading up to SDCC17. To say these are highly sought after among collectors is an understatement.
For more information on getting tickets to these tapings, visit www.teamcoco.com/ComicCon. Further, those lucky few who obtain one of these figures are encouraged to share their latest collection addition using the hashtag #ConanCon all over social media.
