In August of last year, pop culture retailer Zavvi debuted a Batman Beyond Funko Pop exclusive with a translucent Chase version (1 in 6 odds). Unfortunately, those orders were cancelled, but Funko is picking up the slack with a new drop that will take place today, May 31st at 9:30 am PT / 12:30 pm ET. At that time, you'll be able to grab one here at the Funko Shop as an exclusive priced at $15. We expect this one to go fast, so be ready at launch time if possible.
