I just need one ticket, for what it's worth I have given back to the community.  Gave away two rooms here.  Good luck to all.

So my husband is in several Funko boards and it was asked how the wait list process will work. It seems that the people at Funko can go into the wait list from Eventbrite and manually pick and choose who to release tix to. That's why certain people on Funko board got their emails yesterday. That's how Funko works from what I've seen and learned. At the booth they let certain people in. At the party certain tables with their favorites and admins on boards get a lot of prizes.

I was just telling someone yesterday I suspected this was going on. They have built a friendship with a lot of the older fans so I'm not surprised they are going the extra mile for them.

I was told the same thing that they were picking who got the waitlist email and when you go on to the board you see that it is mostly long time board members that got the waitlist letter, and I'm thinking that is where some of those missing 500 tickets are.

A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting”

I just assumed they did a pre-sale for their long-time fans.  :-\
I guess shuffling everyone to a waiting list and then picking and choosing from that list is pretty much the equivalent.

Yeah I don't have high hopes, nor expectations.  But you don't get anything if you don't respectfully ask :) If people can help each other, awesome.  if not? Just another day not going to make or break my fun.

I like that they take care of the individuals who have been fans for a long time.  If this is indeed what is happening.  Still hoping to see my name called off the waitlist or hope to get help from the community.

Everyone that was waitlisted - keep an eye out for an email from Funko about being able to purchase tickets! I just got one from them, letting me know that I was eligible to buy one. It limited me to one ticket, and also gave me 8 minutes to finish purchasing them. Best of luck!

Please keep me in mind with your stand by emails! My friend still hasn't got one and I don't want him to have to sit out side without us!

So they're giving you only 8 minutes after getting the email to make your purchase?
