Here’s some awesome news for Trese fans out there, the heroine of the show, Alexandra Trese, now has her own collectible vinyl figure. You probably know who she is, but as a refresher: The character is from the hit comic book series inspired by Philippine mythology, which was adapted into the country’s first-ever Netflix anime series.
So where can you get your hands on these cool new collectible items? The Alexandra Trese Funko Pop! figures will be available exclusively at Philippine comic book retailer, Filbar’s stores, and online shop starting this Saturday, Nov. 27, 2021.
There will be two variants of the doll: a regular colored figure that retails at P800 and a limited edition Black and White Chase figure, which can only be bought as part of a six-piece bundle of “Trese” Pops.
According to Filbar’s Facebook page, the collectibles will be released under Funko’s POP! Comics line, which has previously produced several figures based on iconic comic book series, including Archie, Garfield, and Hellboy.
“We’re ecstatic that Funko has collaborated with us to bring this fan-favorite comic character into the Pop! multiverse. Trese fans have been clamoring for a Trese Pop! for many years now,” said Jacob Cabochan, co-owner of Filbar’s, the Philippines’ oldest chain of comic and collectibles stores.
“Early on, a lot of fans started to make their own custom Trese Pop! figures. It’s great to finally have the official figure which will provide protection from Aswang… well, maybe it will,” recalled Trese writer and co-creator Budjette Tan.
How exciting, right? What’s awesome about this announcement is that there will be no limits as to how many Alexandra Trese collectible figures you can purchase. Plus, it’ll be available nationwide, so all you need to do is head to a branch near you. Happy shopping!
