Get ready to saw “aww” — coming later this year, the official Funko blog just announced that a vinyl figure themed after the short film, Bao, will be released through the Funko Shop. The short film features a dumpling who springs to life, giving an empty-nesting mother another chance at Motherhood.
Almost as important to the details of the dumpling vinyl figure itself are the packaging detail — made to resemble the traditional bamboo steamers used to cook dumplings. This is such a great detail.
Learn even more about Bao in our earlier posts (listed below in the Related Posts) revealing a first-look at the film, additional concept artwork, and more. Additionally, stay tuned as we’ll be releasing the next episode of our podcast soon featuring an interview with Bao Director, Domee Shi and Producer, Becky Neiman-Cobb.
