Save some money, because the gamble can be pretty damning if you don't come out with anything.

From what I've been hearing lately, I feel fortunate mine have all come in good condition, but I get more worried with each release.

Same. Seems like I have a mini panic attack, hold-my-breath moment whenever we get a dinged up box. But so far so good *knock on wood*

I do like these drops, but I do find myself not getting into as many of them these days. However, same could be said for me in general. Tending to just stick to 1-3 lines of Pops/Products and only go for those.

I think Funko is just over producing these days. and they're grasping at strings to make sure the elder collectors continue to be interested.

I think if they hit on the right product line for NFT's then they will be hot but right now I've not had any that I really wanted to besides Hot Rod. Maybe a Gi Joe one or even like a 50's/60's cartoon like aka Freddy as Johnny Quest. :freddy3:

My opinion is that you need to make characters that have never been made before, example Nickelodeon Series 2. I know this is hard since there are so many Pops that have been made already but how many different versions of Powerpuff girls do you need. I'm sure there are many more characters out there like from the Transformers line, GI Joe.

With the recent influx of NFT physicals, I've noticed the prices for everything in hand is so much cheaper to buy things after the fact than hunting for epics to complete a royalty set. I've seen royalty Freddy's in hand go for around $70 (aka 2 premium and 1 standard packs). To me at least, NFT's were fun in the beginning but now if you wait it out, you'll find a great deal and not have to take a gamble (granted, unless that's your thing and enjoy lol).

Exactly this. I'll still buy a few packs to cure the itch but waiting them out tends to yield a bigger discount once everyone has them in hand.

I partly agree with it, it's much easier to buy them on hand. Though if you are building royalty and you have enough wax and buy epics early on I'm sure it's lower than $70. It really depends on how patient are you, and a lot of people just loves to gamble.

Also you can have a limit on packs for the first 2 hours. The last hour let people buy what they want. Would cut down on burning packs. There have been a couple of times where I bought packs then wanted more just to try for a physical and to complete the Royalty set.

Oh really didn't even know about this. I thought you just need to re-enter the queue after your purchase

You can make 3 transactions on one credit card then either use another card or it won't let you buy.
