They did not sell their exclusives last year and the same will be this year. The reason for that was the atrocity that occurred in 2016, it was really bad and since then there hasn't been much of the same issue. Not to mention other situations outside of the cons that led to it, but trust, its better this way.
I heard the stories, it was vicious... people pushed and shoved... cut lines. The line was wrapping outside the expo hall, so Funko selling it at their booth is 100 percent better.
Yeah I remember 2016 like it was yesterday I was in the first 100 and we still didn’t get our pops in hand till 11:30/12 noon it was draining and insane and after that I was like nope
Never again. Insane.
I remember that thursday. I got there at 5am. I was around the corner from entrance so I was pretty close. When we went downstairs to get the wristbands I was in first 50 maybe 100 too. They wernt even handing out wristbands when i got into that line. After a few minutes they started handing out badges. this is where to me it got weird. (2016 TT was in front left corner right up the stairs by the bathrooms) By time I got up stairs there was a couple 100 people in front of me and line wraped through the show floor. (Where the hell did all those people come from). This is then where things went wrong security came cause booths were complaining and moved the line and made it go off the floor and outside the big doors. People jumped line people went nuts. Then security came and said everyone who is on the show floor is good anyone outside the big hanger door has to come back later. That is when all hell broke loose. People jumping in line yelling arguing.
Still to this day I do not know how I went from first 50 to 100 downstairs to so many people in front of me so of course I was p***. But I just made the cutoff. The security holding a sign was pretty much over my head. From there yes it took forever.
