Doctors, nurses and other medical staff tirelessly working through the COVID-19 pandemic will now — rightly — stand alongside the likes of Batman and Wonder Woman.

Funko has added front line workers to its Pop! Heroes collection. The 4-inch figures depict men and women in scrubs and face masks in confident positions, either with their arms crossed or their hands placed on their hips. You can easily imagine them saying, “We got this.”

Buying the collectible toys is an easy way to support their full-sized counterparts, too, since retailers BoxLunch and Hot Topic are giving all net proceeds from sales of them to GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund. (Funko also made a donation.) The money will help people obtain food, sanitation or even personal protective equipment.

Figures retail for $10.99 each. They’re available for preorder on May 22 after 8 p.m. Pacific.
