Yeah, I would definitely want proof that the person was at the table and there. Too many good "customs" around.


The other problem is where they get manufacture i'm sure if they wanted to they could easily take the molds and make their own.

Especially since I think it's the same mold as the common Hopper, just gold instead.

Yes some people can tell the difference but the gold being a metallic glitter gold, which is harder to fake.. best option like mentioned before it to make sure you have as much proof as possible from seller

oh yeah forsure. just a matter of them painting it different color. i'm sure it's the same with any variant. I'm sure there is more to it then just putting on the serial number or edition underneath. probably has something to do with the work flow or programming/new stamp mold or something.

I don't know how it all works, but i've seen it done in other things I collect and I'm sure it can be applied across the board.

Unfortunately in today's time anything can be faked. They can even photo shop pictures. Personally I wouldn't buy from anyone unless I know you or a close friend that knows you. The problem that comes up is even when you get it in hand what do you compare it to?

I was debating on ordering too but I've never done a mystery box with them before so I was unsure. I tried searching for reviews but couldn't dig up much.

This is a cool pop. Was even cooler attending the event and seeing David pass out the Pops himself. Sitting at the wrong table unfortunately.

Twenty One is what the money is on, if there is one. What they should do is put a random generator up on the screen and roll the number from 1 to 40.

Question, to the lucky owners of this pop.

Does the Gold Hopper Box different from the Regular Box? Like is the UPC different?

Was about to ask the same thing. If there is anything unique it will help the community spot check some of these.

I have heard multiple people believe (conspiracy warning) that Funko "placed" people at table 20's. That they knew who they wanted to sit there whether customers, influences or long standing funko fans.

Even if they did I wouldn’t be that upset. The party is amazing and everyone that goes gets a ton of cool stuff. I’m a long standing funko fan but not one if the originals
