Conan O'Brien will once again be immortalized with a set of four Pop! Vinyl figures to be available this July, when TBS's late-night series CONAN returns to San Diego for Comic-Con® International. Created by Funko for TBS, a division of Turner, this year's collectible figure designs include "Conan as Spider-Man™," "Jedi™ Conan," "The Flash™ Conan" and "White Walker™ Conan." In addition, there will be a limited-edition figure entitled, "MonoConan," which will only be available through activations & giveaways taking place in San Diego.
During the week of Comic-Con® International, CONAN will be taped at San Diego's historic Spreckels Theatre on Wednesday, July 19 – Saturday, July 22.

This marks the third year for CONAN at Comic-Con International. In 2015, CONAN became the first late-night series to tape a week of shows in San Diego during Comic-Con, a milestone celebrated with the creation of the first-ever Conan Pop! Vinyl figures. As in past year's, the 2017 Conan Pop! Vinyl figures will be given away to audience members following each San Diego show. While the bulk of the figures will be given away to live show attendees, fans will also have a chance to obtain one of the figures through social activations and sponsor & partner programs. Supplies are limited, and details will be posted on the Comic-Con® website.
