18" Retro Freddy from SDCC 2016

Postby Fugly16 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 9:09 am

Does anyone know how many of these were made?

I bring mine to our local pop events and get asked how many were made, would like to accurately give the right answer. My best guess is 24 of each character? I was also wondering how these were given out at Fundays. Was it lottery or was the prize patrol just running these out to each section randomly giving them, I doubt they were tossing them.

No it's more then 10. Fugitive re released it about a year ago... I would put in the 20 to 24 pieces of each category.

They were lined on the stage and at the end people just went up and grabbed them.

It was kinda crazy. My friend leapt from one side of the stage to the other, like one large leap! LOL it was pretty hysterical. That was a fun year!

That would have been crazy to see. Nowadays it would be a brawl at best. I love Funko.

I hate to burst your bubble but there is a story that goes behind that piece that I don’t think I want to share at this time. But there was a ton of those made but only some survived but I know there is way more than you guys think are out there, most surfaced after fundays while there is truth they only had very few displayed at that Fundays. Still a cool piece, congrats.

It wasn’t anything like that, let just say it was quality control problem ;-)

Rev on point.

As for how people got them, it was not a free-for-all. The LE 10 pieces you are thinking of were 2015, the 33" Freddies.

Quality control, so a bunch were made but only some were given out at Fundays that year. So the ones that did not pass quality control should have been thrown out but weren't?
