Star Wars Celebration 2017 - Funko
« on: March 17, 2017, 03:01:23 pm »
The Funko Lottery will go live on Monday, March 20 at 12:00PM EST

Funko, creator of the highly coveted pop-culture vinyl collectibles, is coming to Star Wars Celebration Orlando! Funko will be bringing several exclusive collectibles to the Show Floor and you could go home with one - or all of them! In order to streamline the process and fairly determine who will be eligible to enter the Funko booth, we’re raffling off tickets and you could get a chance to get into the Funko booth and snag some Funko Exclusives – only available at Star Wars Celebration Orlando!
Participation in this process is REQUIRED in order to win a priority ticket with a reserved time to visit the Funko booth at Star Wars Celebration Orlando. The lottery process will close at 12:01 AM PST on April 1. All winners will be notified by April 5 of the date and time that they can line up at the Funko booth.

The Funko booth will open to the public each day AFTER the ticketed sessions (approximately 2:00 PM Thurs-Fri-Sat-Sun) if there is remaining inventory available. The only way to get a ticket to the first sessions of the day is to enter the lottery! !

Sessions for all days of the Show:
Session 1: report to the Funko Booth at 10:00 AM
Session 2: report to the Funko Booth at 12:00 PM
Funko Booth open to all Fans at 2:00 PM – pending inventory

Rules
This random drawing is for a chance to get a ticket to purchase items at the Funko booth.
Attendee & Professional badges only. No Exhibitors.
One application per person only. Attendees will not be permitted to attend more than one ticketed session at the Funko booth during the event
Winning a ticket does not guarantee you any specific item at the Funko booth. Items may sell out by the time you reach the front of the line.
You must have a valid Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 badge for any days you select. No exceptions. We will be checking your badge confirmation to ensure that if you win the lottery for a specific day, you have a badge for that corresponding day.
Tickets are awarded randomly for a specific date and time and must be redeemed for that specific session only. No exceptions.
Tickets are not transferrable and ID will be checked.
You must bring your ticket to the Funko booth to be scanned at the time of your session. You will not be allowed to purchase exclusives without your lottery ticket.
There will be a strict limit of one of each item per ticket.
You will not be able to line up at the Funko booth before your session begins.
Every person in line will require a ticket. No exceptions.
ADA attendees must also go through the same process noted above.

While it is not NYCC, at this year's ECCC, they did it this way and it was very smooth. I was able to get what I wanted (I won a ticket for Saturday which was emailed, plus I had a VIP badge to enter the booth) and the line moved at a decent pace. Even when 2pm was hitting, I saw the line moving well. Overall, I had no problems to speak of. Granted, Celebration will probably have more people at this con, but I still think it will be fine. Btw, get used to this. At the Funko HQ tour--which the article of my visit is up on the blog--after it was over while waiting for the driver to pick me up, I asked if this type of system will continue on. One Funko employee said yes due to the positive feedback; people liking it. I don't know if I mentioned it on here or not, but for SDCC, if they get the okay to do this for this year, they will do it; the online lottery sign up, etc. (If I recall, they did this for Preview Night folks last year, right?) Also said it all depends on the convention center. I think the worker meant CCI but if not, I get it.

Hi,

Your submission has been received!  We will contact all lottery winners by April 10 with their assigned times via email.

Thank you!

I'm sure it's earlier than that, hopefully.

I think the rumor is the Jabba plush will be shared with Amazon, based on the markings on the box next to the SW logo You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

My friend and I also no Funko spots.
