Dungeons & Dragons Funko POP! reveals an interesting new look for the classic villain
A new Dungeons & Dragons Funko POP! the figure reveals an interesting new look for one of the game’s most iconic villains. Earlier this week, Funko revealed that they will be releasing a POP! figure of Vecna, the undead Lich God at the heart of some of the game’s greatest adventures. The new figure shows Vecna ââin an elaborate outfit unlike anything we’ve seen in an official “source book” “from D&D. While Vecna ââkeeps both her hand and her eye in the Funko POP! figure, there is a cute nod to the Lich’s notorious artifacts in the figure – one hand wears a gauntlet while one eye appears to have a gold accent. You can see the figure below:
The new figure raises some questions about possible D&D plans. While it’s no surprise that Vecna ââis finally getting a Funko POP! figure (the D&D figure line seems to be popular for Funko), most figures appear to be based on official D&D artwork. For example, the Funko POP! figure of Asmodeus, perhaps the most powerful in D&D Devils Hall of Fame, features robes and a look similar to the portrayal of the character in the Neverwinter Tales comic. The equally iconic coloring of the Xanathar Viewer is identical to his appearance on the cover of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything and in Water depth: Dragon Heist. Basically that’s unusual for a Funko POP! figure to feature an entirely unique design instead of a look at least inspired by some sort of official work of art.
Vecna ââhas not made an “official” appearance in any 5E material to date and its only recent performance comes from the Magic: The Gathering Adventures in Forgotten Realms card game, in which the lich appears as a token (and is totally different from the Funko POP figure!). Obviously, it’s possible that Funko just used some sort of invisible reference artwork when creating this figure, or maybe they came up with the design on their own. But the figure at least raises the remote possibility that Vecna ââ(and more precisely, this design of Vecna) could be in the works for some sort of upcoming adventure or D&D book.
We will have to wait and see what the future holds for Vecna, but fans can pre-order the Vecna ââFunko POP! figure from GameStop now.
