There was palpable excitement across the halls of AsiaPOP Comicon 2018 as Pinoy fans finally got their hands on the first-ever Jollibee Funko Pop! figure, in what turned out to be the biggest draw of the opening day of this year’s comic convention. 

As the hotly-anticipated toy went on sale, eager collectors queued for hours just to get their hands on the pint-sized version of the fast food chain’s beloved mascot. 

Some were still in line (the longest inside the convention halls by far on opening day), and have been for more than two hours, as of writing. 

This is the first collaboration between Jollibee and Funko, an American toy company which has held partnerships with Marvel, Disney, DC Comics, and many more. 

An estimated 2,000 pieces were made available Friday. Another 2,000 is expected to go on sale on Saturday. 

The figure is priced at P650. 

It will be available in select Jollibee branches nationwide after this weekend.
