Looks like lots of stores are already starting to get them and sell them so I'd give your GameStop a call. I'm going to run by my store later today to check.

I hope so too :(

If not then at least a new variant will be good. It'll at least bring down the price of the "common". Pretty shocked by how much it's going for right now.

Guess not :p

But will Funko make Earthbound pops before Nintendo (inevitably) releases Mother 3?

That one was also pretty surprising seeing as how that one lasted 6 months on Funimation's site

Not sure if that one's coming back though seeing how Funimation treats their exclusives :(

At least we got the regular all might and weakened all might though

Thanks for the heads up! I'm so excited for this box. Smol Might is crazy adorable. It was a variant I was surprised to see so soon into the line.

Are any of these distributors using the specific term “vaulted”, or are they saying something kind of similar like “no longer available” or something like that?

Most distributors use the term “Sold Out”. If they were expecting the figure to come back they would list it as “pre-order” or “temporality our of stock” or something similar.

They won’t list the figure as “Sold Out” unless they get word from Funko that it’s not longer in production.

Regardless the lack of an official word from Funko still means that there’s some hope, but it’s quite unlikely at this point

EDIT: actually writing this post made me remember that funko did bring back a vaulted pop before when they brought back Day of the Dead Sally for a while at Target. Hopefully they do something similar with Tenya with another store like Hot Topic

Right on. As long as no one is actually using the term “Vaulted”, that’s fine. If they were, it would be pretty crappy of them to be spreading false info like that when nothing has been confirmed by Funko officially. I’m getting really annoyed with all the unsubstantiated rumors driving up the price of the common.

I get it might be unlikely at this point, but we’ve seen Funko do plenty of much weirder more unexpected things in the past, so I’d say there’s plenty of reason to keeping holding onto a bit of hope.

I agree with your statement that Funko has done pretty weird things in the past and that there may still a possibility that Tenya will return. But I wouldn't say that these rumors are unsubstantiated. Even the biggest distributors have listed the figure as discontinued/sold out and that can't just be a coincidence. Distributors have the closest contact to Funko so if they say that they aren't getting any stock in the near future, then we can safely assume that this was a decision by Funko to not allocate more stock.

As for vaulting, while it's true that a figure is not officially discontinued until it's listed as vaulted by Funko, there are cases where a figure has been quietly discontinued.

https://www.funko.com/products/all/bran ... -spongebob

https://www.funko.com/products/all/bran ... -the-eagle

These figures aren't officially "vaulted", yet we know from distributors and the fact that we haven't seen these figures in years that these aren't coming back, especially Spongebob.

While there still may be hope for Tenya, there's no guarantee and there's evidence that support that.

At this point, the only thing that may bring him back, imo, is to constantly remind Funko that the figure is still in heavy demand, just like with Battle Deku. In that sense, it might even be good to let Tenya's price continue to skyrocket in order to catch Funko's attention (again, just like with Battle Deku), even though it will suck for many.

From what I’ve seen, the retailers have a list that funko gives as a spreadsheet and that is where tenya is listed as vaulted.

Yeah it looks like that’s what those over at the subreddit page are saying. I guess the only hope now is for a store exclusive restock or a new mold to bring down the current price :(
