Ava DuVernay has already been immortalized as a Barbie shero, and now she’s getting another toy honor from Funko.
According to Women and Hollywood, DuVernay will be one of two female directors to have Funko Pop figurines made in their likeness. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will be joining her as the company’s first female directors to get the Pop treatment, the company confirmed to Entertainment Weekly. DuVernay’s Funko figurine will feature her iconic locs, glasses and an Array shirt.
DuVernay has had a banner year, thanks to the success of the Netflix miniseries, When They See Us, which broke records at Netflix while also helping to shape the conversation around the innocence of the Exonerated Five.
