Earth Day 2021 officially took place on April 22nd, and Funko released a big wave of Pop figures based on the iconic Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series to celebrate. The wave included some great exclusives, but the Blue Spirit (with Chase) Pop figure earmarked for Hot Topic was delayed (currently available to pre-order via Big Apple Collectibles). What's more, they didn't even mention that Hot Topic's sister site BoxLunch was getting an Earth Day exclusive glow-in-the-dark Aang (Spirit) Pop figure.
Well, the spirit Aang Pop figure is very real, and pre-orders went live here at BoxLunch earlier today. Unfortunately, it appears that they sold out in around 10 minutes. A restock is possible so keep tabs on that link, or grab one here on eBay. The glow-in-the dark effect paired with the translucent figure should be pretty spectacular. You can take a closer look in the BoxLunch teaser below.
