Funko is aiding in breast cancer research with a new line of Funko Pop! figures and a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and Harley Quinn suit up in pink for the new Pop! figures to show support of breast cancer research. This special DC Pop! collection is made in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month coming up in October.

Funko has made a $25,000 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to help aid in their mission to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s research.

“BCRF is proud to welcome Funko to the BCRF Partner Family this year,” the Breast Cancer Research Foundation said in a statement. “Funko has created an exclusive line of pink Funko Pops! that will bring out the inner hero in you.”

This is the latest news from Funko after their May 2020 announcement of a Marvel tabletop game and the appointment of Ginny McCormick as their new chief marketing officer.

The $25,000 donation will fund 500 hours of research and will be donated regardless of sales. The Pop! figures will be available beginning September 2020.
