Funko, a pop-culture lifestyle brand, has announced the launch of its new collectible line, Project Fred. The new collection stands as Funko’s first concentrated foray into the world of premium collectibles. Based on the food mascot, Project Fred 01 – Bob’s Big Boy is a nod to Funko’s first product, the Bob’s Big Boy Wacky Wobbler. 

The 11-inch-tall Project Fred 01 – Bob’s Big Boy spotlights Freddy, Funko’s mascot. Only 750 of this hard vinyl item will be produced for this drop, and 75 of the figures will be a variant of Freddy in an alternate Bob’s Big Boy outfit. Each figure is encased in matte packaging, with a numbered certificate of authenticity, 

“As we look beyond our 25th anniversary, we’re taking it back to where it all began with our first Wacky Wobbler by bringing Bob’s Big Boy and Funko together again for Project Fred,” says Mike Becker, senior vice president, creative and entertainment, Funko. 

Commemorating the launch, Funko, in conjunction with Bob’s Big Boy, held an event at the historical Bob’s Big Boy location in Burbank on Feb. 27 with a restaurant takeover through Feb. 28. The first 150 guests on both days received a limited-edition pin. 

Future Project Fred drops will be revealed in the future.
