Hamilton maestro Lin-Manuel Miranda seems to have been gifted his very own bobble-headed plastic doll, and it is perfect.

Miranda tweeted out a picture of his funky Funko’d self, wearing the iconic grey sweater that he’s rocked in photos and on his epic Carpool Karaoke run:

A little googling shows me that this Funko doesn’t appear to be an official production, but rather a custom job—there’s a whole separate business of altered and original Funkos out there, because artists are awesome. You can order a similar l’il Lin via Etsy shop MiracleCustoms.

  • Spider-man’s leading lady Zendaya is set to star in A White Lie, the story of Vassar College’s first black graduate, Anita Hemmings. Hemmings passed as white—until her background was investigated—and graduated in 1887, forty years before Vassar was integrated. (via HuffPo)

So what you’d see today, members of the Midnight Society?
