Anyone go to the event last night hosted by Funmaker Mike Becker (Funko's founder) at the Comic-Con Museum?  I was on babysitting duty but my wife went with some of her friends and got some pretty cool swag: posters and tshirt from the event (Monster Mask-O-Raid - it was a fundraiser for an education organization that centered around Mike's love of Monsters & showcased Mike's personal collection of vintage Halloween costumes) as well as a Disneyland Hatbox Ghost prototype.  Sounded like a fun event, and wondering if any other locals were there.  Funmaker Mike is a San Diego resident nowadays, and it sounds like last night was fun.
Anyone have any cool stories from last night?

I wanted to go but it was a bit late for me.  I would have had to take off at 8pm at the latest which would have meant I would have missed most of it.  Hopefully he'll have other events.

In order to widen the audience awareness of Funko Shop Exclusives, we will begin the process of posting launch information to our Funko social channels and blog.

Any ornithologist worth her salt will tell you that Fwoopers don’t necessarily make the best house
pets for muggles. For one thing, the Fwooper’s song will drive anyone who hears it insane, requiring domesticated Fwoopers to be subjected to a monthly silencing charm. But if you happen to have a witch or wizard in the family and happen to be in the market for a stunningly-colored companion bird with magical origins, Funko Shop's limited edition Fwooper might just be the pet for you. And imagine the Instagram followers! This undeniably fantastic creature from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the perfect addition to any aviary.

Pop! Movies: Fantastic Beasts – Fwooper $15.00 each - Limit 1 of each

My New Years resolution is to buy less!  LOL, trying to stick to conventions if I win, Fundays (or other events).  Occasional shop items but even those are dangerous since they come out every week.  I love them but I have run out of room to collect at my current rate.

Still on board to help people when they need it!  I mostly get requests by our members in Canada.  It's cheaper for me to go to Walmart and ship a large package then for them to try an order one by one as they come in stock.

The last POP I bought was a month and a half ago - Dustin in hockey gear (Stranger Things) on sale at HT for $7.   


Lately I’ve been imposing strict criteria for purchases...Hockey Dustin is something we probably won’t get in any other form so that’s “okay” for me to get.   All those Captain Marvel movie POPs coming out, I’ll likely pass on them all as I’ve already got the Dorbz bundle (had to get the Chewie!  Don’t care that she is renamed Goose for the movie) and some of the Marvel Legends.

The Alice in a teacup is very tempting. Exclusive to the Disney parks. I may have to get that one but Dolphina and I agree, sleeping in the cold outside is not happening!
