Wow haha I was just wondering about a shoe line considering one of the photo contest days. That's pretty cool.

I would totally buy the Freddy Flyers if they made those again! The stamp tho... That's so cool a piece of history! I don't have any real old ones yet but my Making Fun box is probably the one I'll look back on as a favorite!

Well they just came out, but I really like the table assignment lanyards they gave out at Fundays this year. I was able to trade for all 4 so I was happy about that. When the new site is up and running I’ll be able to post a pic but I don’t use any outside hosting sites.

I’ll have to take a picture later. But I have a pair of Freddy Flyers & a Hockey Jersey !
The shoes unfortunately don’t have a box, but I was able to find them in my size. So I lucked out on that. :)

Funko shoes? oh yes, 2004 SDCC , 48 pairs of Funko Flyers were made and given away. Too fun.

What is your oddest piece of Funko history?


Those Funko Flyers are awesome! In this day and age of "sneakerheads" there's definitely a rising market for that! Also, I would totally rock a pair!

As someone who got into Funko relatively late in the game (around 2013), I love reading all these stories of Funko history!

Among all the stuff I have, I'd say my oddest piece would be the Cosmic Popcorn from last year's Fundays. I haven't even touched it since that day! lol

That funko freddy watch reminds me of swatches. Well maybe just the band. I even went so far as to buy a swatch in Switzerland.
