It was Cameron that chose me as a recipient and he handed me the pop. It was during the live taping of the Funkast at ECCC.

I'd love a social freddy but haven't had any luck online either. hopefully it's in my future to meet one of Funkast crew in person and get one. :freddy2:


Fingers crossed for both of us :)

I would just wait till see you the facebook, and twitter giveaways disappear. It seems they have a ton of these.

I may be wrong, but aren't the odds on the social media giveaways very very bad? I see 4K to 5K retweets for one or two pieces?

That 3 minute U-turn was funny lol! Though I'm holding out that they'll keep on giving out these guys slowly and we will be able to get them at a cheaper price down the line! Good luck for all at SDCC :)

I know exactly what you mean. My entire family collects but I came to love mainly metallic and chrome and some others but they are also the most saught after and hardest to get. So yes I have the same self realization as you. Best of luck getting one. Guess you can settle with your paper cut out for now. I wonder if I can do the same thing for the pops I want and just paint them metallic and chrome. Would be cheaper. :-k Sorry no can do. Gotta have the real thing.

Good luck to everyone trying for one at SDCC! Your chances are probably better than social media giveaways.

Funkast giveaways used to be a decent odd until people picked up on them and just copy what everyone else is doing. I have no doubt only half the entries for their contests actually listen to the podcast
