Funimation is celebrating its big silver anniversary in style this year. Thanks to the support of fans, the company turns 25-years-old in 2019, and Funimation is hyping the milestone with a slew of special Funko Pop figures. And thanks to a new announcement, fans have learned Dragon Ball is the next series coming up to bat.
Over on Twitter, Funimation confirmed its release of a special silver chrome Vegeta figure in honor of its silver anniversary.
"The newest exclusive Funiversary series Funko Pop is here," Funimation teased fans. "Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z is making her silver chrome debut. Snag the second Funko Pop of our limited-edition anniversary series now!"
As you can see above, the Vegeta figure heralds back to the Saiyan's days as a bad guy. The chrome villain is donning a power scouter, and his shoulders are looking real broad thanks to his Saiyan armor. With his hands crossed, Vegeta looks like a force to be reckoned with, so hardcore Funko collectors will want to snag this figure before it moves into the vault.
Right now, Funimation still has limited quantities of the Pop available. The anniversary piece retails for just under $30 before shipping and tax, so fans will want to plan out the purchase accordingly.
So, did you manage to get your hands on one of these figures? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
