All you Matterhorn and Autopia fans out there, keep an eye out online as a new Bob Gurr Funko POP! was revealed today at WonderCon in Anaheim, and it’s coming soon!
Twitter user @FunkoPOPsNews shared the reveal today from the WonderCon floor, showing the Disney Legend and iconic OG Imagineer immortalized in vinyl, complete with signature black, beady eyes.
In the pop, Bob is depicted with white hair, wearing a Hawaiian shirt and khakis while holding a tiki mug. Hawaiian shirts are of course a favorite of the 91 year-old, one of the last remaining Imagineers who worked with Walt Disney himself.
A release date was not given.
Gurr is most well known for designing the Autopia cars, the Monorail, Matterhorn Bobsleds, the Omnimover ride system used in The Haunted Mansion and so much more. His legacy is left in nearly everything that moves, in one way or another, at a Disney park. He was hired by Walt in 1954 to work for WED Enterprises, which later became Walt Disney Imagineering.
Of course, Bob Gurr isn’t the only Disney icon getting the Funko POP! treatment this year. Walt Disney is getting a few Pops of his own, along with plenty of Disney characters for the Disney100 celebration.
