just to be sure, if i am able to get a ticket, i can give it to anybody, right? it's not tied to the name on my eventbrite account?

Their FAQ is a little strange, but you can change the name on the ticket so I'd assume so.

Indeed, good luck to all. Should be interesting. Hopefully no issues to speak of.

Question for those here, though not sure anybody knows the true answer. I'm going to try and get 2 tickets for myself and a friend. But if we can't make it, it says no selling the tickets? I wouldn't want to make money off of them, but if I can't go, just to get back how much I spent. Anybody think I should just forget even trying, since I'm not 100% sure if I can make it?

I have a friend who really wants me to go to Fundays but I'm conflicted.  Last year I was standing in line for one of the outside events and struck up a conversation with a family who had been to the Fundays event the night before and spoke about how people were being hurt, children were getting slammed into and that it was horrible.  Did anyone go last year?  Was it really like that?

i've never been to fundays myself, but according to a lot of the comments from this sdccblog article from last year. it was really bad, somebody even broke his ankle. :(

The family told me a big guy plowed into a little girl and she had to be carried away.  They made it sound like a lot of people were getting hurt.

Eventbrite says on their site that you can change the name on the ticket if the vendor allows the option to be enabled. So my guess is funko doesn't have it enabled and u would need to contact them to change.

Just my guess, I don't see any concrete info about changing names for fundays

I didn't go, but the accounts I have heard - there were chill pockets and insane pockets with black friday levels of inhuman behavior. Kind of like the exhibit floor! :)

The comments section on the SDCC Unofficial Blog make it sound like insanity.  Not sure this is my thing.

I have gone for the last 2 yrs and it has got more intense and a couple of ppl get hurt, that being said it is my understanding that they are going to do things differently this year; probably in hopes no one gets hurt.
