Funko Pop! Blitz is holding a new weekly event centred all around American history, bringing some well-known figures into the game for the next week to coincide with Memorial Day.

Between now and 1st June, you can collect Funko Pop versions of iconic historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, President George Washington, and President Abraham Lincoln, as well as cultural icons such as Rosie the Riveter and Uncle Sam.

As with all other events that appear in Funko Pop! Blitz, you can collect these characters by dropping a certain item to the bottom of the board in every game you play. This time it’s an American flag.

If you equip one of the Pops from this event, more flags will appear too which give you a bigger opportunity to collect more rewards. This includes the event exclusive Uncle Sam, who can only be unlocked by finishing the event.
