Funko Rant:  SDCC - The Big Damn List


Well, well, well….looks like it’s that time of year again.  SDCC.  I meant to do this sooner, but real life has kicked me in the teeth this past month.  Nothing terrible, just terribly busy.


I’m going to try my best to put all the exclusives in one spot.  Once again, I shall most likely fail.  I’m going to try and note edition sizes and prices where I can.  Given time, I might actually put them into their individual lines.  Exclusives are listed by retailer and include booth numbers.  Pieces without an edition size will be available at other outlets (Hot Topic, Barnes & Noble, who knows anymore) during/after the Con.  


A quick note on the Funko Booth Procedure.  Instead of stampeding the convention floor every day to try and nab a spot in line, stampede the Sails Pavilion when the doors open to enter a lottery to maybe win a wristband to get into the booth.  


Preview night wristbands are being given out through an online lottery.  See the blog post HERE


Details for the rest of the con are posted below and lifted directly from the Funko Blog.



RETAIL EXCLUSIVES LOTTERY:

When: Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Drawings will start shortly after the lines are let into the building until supplies last. Depending on the amount of attendees in line this line may start moving as early as 6:00am.

Where: Pavilion Terrace (Upper level outside Sails Pavilion). Attendees must first enter the Convention Center from the Badged Member entry line at the front of the building before lining up for drawings. Entry to the Sails Pavilion will be from this line.

ADA attendees with mobility issues should go to the Lobby B2 doors and use the glass elevators for access to the Sails Pavilion. They will be let up to the holding area outside the Sails Pavilion at the same time as the rest of the attendees.


For more information, please see this post from Comic-Con International.

Please note:


  • Attendee & professional badges only.

  • One drawing per person, per day.

  • This random drawing is for a chance to get a wristband to purchase items at the Funko booth.

  • Winning a wristband does not guarantee you of any specific item at the Funko booth. Items may sell out by the time you reach the front of the line.

  • Wristbands are for a specific date and time and must be redeemed for that specific session.

  • Wristbands are not transferrable.

  • There will be a strict limit of one of each item per wristband.

  • You will not be able to line up at the Funko booth before your session begins.

  • ADA attendees must also go through the lottery process outside the Sail Pavilion, as noted above.


There you go.  Get in line to win a chance to get in line.  If you do get in, make the most of it.  You probably won’t be getting another shot.


If you don’t have a wristband (for Preview Night or any other day)...don’t bother going to the booth except to window shop.  You are only getting in with a wristband.  Sounds a little harsh when I say it.  They write it better on the blog.
 

Aaaaaand here we go!  


FUNKO - Booth 5341


Once again, Funko covers as many bases as possible with a little something for everyone.  A lot of new sculpts this year, only a couple of repaints.  Missing this year are Hikari, (correction: Cap was added late Monday) but seeing how many are languishing on the Funko website, not surprising.  Mini’s left out in the cold as well.  A ReAction exclusive...didn’t expect that.  I was of the opinion that the new Action Figures or Wobblers would have gotten a push instead.  And where’s the SDCC Freddy, Funko?  You did one for ECCC and the Funko Shop. Maybe he’s in my Fundays Box of Fun.


Oh...I have no pricing on these.  Go with 15 for the Pop, maybe the same for Dorbz.  Multi-packs and rides, expect 25. These are guesses.  Since I'm packing tomorrow, I probably won't update this.

PRICES:
Dorbz: $10
Dorbz multi-packs: $20-$35
Dorbz Ridez: $25

Rock Candy: $15
Pop!s: $15
Oversized Pop!s & multi-packs: $20-40

Hikari: $80

World of Pop: Vol 5


Any piece with an edition size is a Con Exclusive.  There will be some available through Gemini Collectibles Thursday.  Be prepared, they go quick.


Everything else is a Con/Summer/Shared Exlcusive.  That means you’ll find it at Hot Topic, Barnes and Noble, GameStop etc.  Probably PopCultcha, too.


Here’s the list of what will be where.  It’s mostly almost totally confirmed rumors and hearsay so take it with a grain of salt, probably the whole shaker.  Reddit and IG have been stepping all over themselves trying to nail this list down, this is their best effort..  Most of these shared exclusives will go on sale Thursday, July 21.  If you’re lucky, you might snag one with the SDCC sticker.


Barnes and Noble:

Pop - Patriotic Snoopy

Pop - Willy Wonka - Violet

Pop - Fantastic Beast  - Newt

Pop Minis - Potter 3-Pack of angry vegetables

Pop: Purple Pieman



Hot Topic:

Pop - Powderpuff Girls (all three)

Pop - Malcolm Merlyn

Pop - iZombie

Pop - Mag The Mighty

Pop - Gorilla Grod

Pop -Suicide Squad Underwater Batman

Pop -Thumbs Up BB-8

Pop -Thumbs Up Deadpool (I sense a theme)

Pop - Pajama Jack - NBX

Dorbz Ridez  Vanellope

Rock Candy - Harley Quinn

Rock Candy - Catwoman


GameStop:

Dorbz Stan Lee

Dorbz X-Men 3-Pack

Dorbz - Burton Batman 3-Pack

Pop - Batman V Superman - 6” Doomsday

Pop - Deadpool Cowboy

Pop - Doctor Strange with Rune

Pop - Han Solo

Pop - Marcu Feix - Golden Lancer

Pop - False God Superman

Pop - Burning Walker


Wal-Mart:

Pop - Five Nights at Freddys Golden Freddy (don’t bother, this piece is a dog)


FYE (also rumored as GameStop, even though FYE makes more sense)

Pop: Scott Pilgrim Sex Bob-omb 3-Pack


BAM (Books a Million)

Don’t know, but something goes on sale the 27th.


HBO Shop
Dorbz: Game of Thrones 3Pack.  (I had a link and now it's broken)
Pop: Mag the Mighty


I do think many of the rumored pieces/stores make sense from a retail mix standpoint.  BN for bookish pieces.  GameStop for game and comic related pieces.  Hot Topic for ‘edgy’ pieces (kind of a stretch, but I wouldn’t expect to find iZombie at Wal-Mart).  


This list covers a good many releases but there a couple items missing that don’t have edition sizes, such as:


Green Goblin, Game of Thrones Dorbz 3 pack (HBO), Ghostbusters Ecto 1, Pete’s Dragon, the ReAction Dark Crystal set and Indiana Jones with Idol (Con only per Brian)

Surely they have another home.



FUNKO SOUTH - POP UP SHOP


Located outside the convention at 448 Market Street in the Marina District

Thursday-Sunday, 10am - 3pm

Ad Icons: 04 Bob’s Big Boy - 480pc


Spastik Plastik Pop:

Based on original, Ed Roth inspired, characters, these are a real treat for old school Funko collectors.  They’re starting off right with Carlos and Otto.  Here’s hoping we see new interpretations of other Spastiks at some point, like maybe, I don’t know...Gil!

FUNKO/MCC POWERED BY FUNKO -Booth 5346


There’s been some chatter that the Year One Mega Box will be on sale at SDCC in limited quantities.  As a Founder who was told this was a unique perk, I kind of resent this.  By the same token, maybe I’ll get to see what’s in it.

That's right, take a chance.


PREVIEWS - Booth 2401


Swamp Thing Flocked and ‘Scent’ - 8000pcs.  


Yes, a scratch and sniff pop.  How would it smell like anything other than plastic or dirt?  ON DISPLAY at the Previews booth, scattered around the con floor at individual retailers.


BAIT - Booth 4845


With the exception of the Rookie Kobie pop, everything available at the Bait booth is listed as a ‘pre-release exclusives (limited to 360 Units)’.  Many of these pieces are also listed on the Toy Wars website already.  Prices are either 15 or 20 bucks.  I’ve broken them out by price.

This one’s kind of fun. It’s see through!  Ooooohhhhh….spooky! 15$

05 - Superman Conan

06 - Stormtrooper Conan

07 - Ghostbuster Conan

There will be a daily drawing for that day's Pop held each day of the con.  For a chance to win each day’s Conan Pop! Vinyl figure, badged Comic-Con attendees should go to the Manchester Grand Hyatt Grand Hall C (see the map below). This is a random drawing for the Conan Pop! Vinyl figures ... it is not first-come, first served. The random drawing for each day’s Conan Pop! Vinyl figure will start at 9:00 AM on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and continue each day until supplies run out. Supplies are limited and there is no guarantee of getting a Conan Pop! Vinyl figure.

And here's the link: Link

Just click on that

Enjoy your weekend everybody.
