I mean you think they would either make sure that the vendor they use can handle the bandwidth or they would find a new vendor so that we are not in the same spot as last year.

Also note that last year was a whole lot smaller and Funko was not in the reservation system and they STILL had issues.

I understand it is not easy but they shanked the link on their website. It is almost comical.

The server is shut down until later this week.
Message last updated: 2:33 PM
Today, we had tens of thousands of fans hit our reservation page simultaneously. We were under the impression the servers could handle the volume, but errors resulted in extremely long wait times and for that we apologize. Each time Thuzi saw an issue, the entire process was paused to ensure no one lost their place in line within the system. The fans who were let into the reservation site were the first folks in line and were able to get through the process, and we continued to pause and un-pause the system as server issues continued. We recognize this isn't up to our standards and know that this took valuable time out of your days. We appreciate your patience.

Reservations will re-open this week once all server errors have been fixed. We will post on social and our website when we have the new date they will go live.

I used the link from TWITTER!!!!!!! And it took me to some demo page.   I am sooooooooo mad.  Also my spot in line 1372 and I already knew exclusives were gone.  Now they are letting all those people who found a way around the system to keep those.

Rant over

As much as the lottery was scary, I would prefer it at this point because it’s clear people are working the system. The lottery at least gives the appearance of a fair chance to everyone.

Given the total s-show in every other way today, I really wonder if they forgot to put the exclusives up for reservations.  I haven’t heard of anyone saying they got any or even saw them available.

I know two people that got in and got lucky and got Funko slots, I know two people who are not helping me with them  :'(

Wow.  They must have had very very very early places in line.
Don’t you mean two former friends?  🤣
