So I reached out to Brian and asked if I could get some blank shirt retro Freddys that myself and my wife could customize as Thank yous for the Funatic guest. Well Brain much to my surprise (really it shouldn't have been because the man is awesome) took my request one step further and had these made! My wife knew about the little ones being made for thank yous but I managed to keep the big one a surprise. The big one started the night on our reception table greeting everyone that came to the wedding, quickly became the talk of the wedding and eventually was the most requested dance partner of the night!

Don"t you just love these. Mine is blue and also has the chain attached. Truly the "old days" at the conception of the Funko phenomenon. Thank you for sharing these wonderful remembrances.

This is extremely special to me as a hockey fan and a Funko fan! Had only ever seen a picture of a picture of one of these and now I actually own one!

Absolutely awesome!!! I have a very early Funko t-shirt that is from Sparkys on the Universal Studios walk. It advertises both Funko and Sparkys and comes from the early Mike Becker days. One of my favorite oldies.

ok, this is my new favorite thread. I LOVE all these great "odd" marketing items and rare products. I need to scour some online auctions and see if I can find any of them, now that I know they exist. Thanks for sharing everyone!

I agree! These are awesome to see and a great piece of Funko history.
I love that hockey jersey though I don't think I would wear it to a game. That's one to get framed all nice and pretty.

I was going to frame it, but I decided to wear it over my jacket when I was out last Wednesday but as I started heading towards Florida, I had to peel it off cause I was sweating to death lol
