Nothing can stop The Bee.
With recent jam-packed openings in Milan and Toronto and a slew of mukbang videos online, Filipino fast food chain Jollibee has been experiencing a surge in international popularity lately. And its place in pop culture is about to get even more apparent next month when it gets its very own Funko Pop toy.
Jollibee announced its collaboration with Funko, a United States-based toy manufacturer known for collectible vinyl figures, on Facebook earlier today with a photo and caption that simply say “Funk X Jollibee.”
No other details were included except that it is set to be released next month.
While Jollibee’s post did not include a photo of the toy, FunkoFinderz, a Facebook page that posts photos of new Funko products, shared an unofficial photo this morning.
The same photo was also later shared by Twitter user @FunkoPopNerds, which also shares the latest on the licensed collectible toys.
Pop! Ad Icon – Jollibee is coming soon. This icon is from a Philippines-based fast food chain, so I’d imagine it will be…
But notice that sticker on the bottom right? If this really is the final version that will be distributed next month, it looks like only 4,000 pieces will be made available — so hurry if you want to add this to your toy chest.
With this toy, Jollibee will be joining other pop culture icons like characters from Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and The Avengers, who have also been turned into Funko Pop toys.
Because seriously, Jollibee is a fandom on its own.
