Are you talking about the ones from Toy"R"Us? As far as I know it was left up to the stores. Now that they're closed either someone owns them or they were tossed in the garbage.

There was a lot of confusion about it but most were either given away or sold to individuals who asked for them in the stores or were taken by employees. Some managers argued they needed to be returned to Funko but that wasn't the case so eventually they let them go to someone. A few sold for ~$2000 during the initial scramble, now it looks like a few have sold for ~$1300 and there are a few listed at $900 on ebay at the moment.

I tried to get the one from our Toys R Us, but that was the excuse the manager kept telling me was he had to return it to Funko. One of the other employees actually told me to keep asking because he said the manager told him he was just saying that to get people to stop asking haha

I think the last run of 36 in Freddys were made for fundays about 3 years ago. It was the avengers run if I'm not mistaken. They are awesome (I owed a 36in Thor) but equally take up alot of space lol

Stolen?! Who can just walk away with a 36" Freddy lol. Sounds like an employee or manager took it for themselves. I was lucky enough to get one, but it definitely cost me and was not "free" as some people claimed that got theirs for nothing. I even saw one person one Instagram that managed to get 2 for "free" from 2 different toys r us stores.

Wowzers...$2000 is a bit steep. I was extremely fortunate to get one and paid $400, which isn't cheap or free like some people got lucky, but I guess all in all a heck of a lot better than 2 grand. Seriously, though love my Freddy and I'm grateful I have him in my collection.

I agree, 2k for a one is more than I'd pay...but to each his own I suppose
