That GITD Darth Mail I hope one day to own


Yup the hunt continues for me as well. Good luck on your search :cheers:


I noticed it’s going down in price so patience is the key!!


Yeah , give it a few months to lose the hype and it should be allot less.

I knew missing that panel was one of the positive things I was going to miss by not attending sdcc this year. They gave out some pretty good pops.

Yes, I completely agree. My gf and I had almost identical boxes but when compared to the last Fundays, I’m very happy.

Also hunting here. I completely missed out on the online both and numbers aside I liked the Freddies in that box way better than the in-person boxes. I think GITD Maul will go down a bit more over the next month and then we'll see it go straight back up over time.

Kind of like obe one kenobe gid starwars celebration. Last year the lottery winners got it and it started around 300 and over the year it went up to 900 highest one sold on ebay, then starwars celebration 2022 came and brought more of them to everyone at the convention and it dropped down to 300.

I’m a huge old school wrestling fan so I went bananas when I got the Macho Man FF. My night was all set. The BOF didn’t bother me the slightest. The sodas were the icing on the cake. I was satisfied. What a great night and I hope to repeat it one more time.

I love your stance toward what we got at Fundays, a lot of folks can learn from your demeanor! Too many forget the point of Fundays, it's Funko's way of giving back to the community and while stuff like LE24's would be awesome, we all get something. And this year, the amount of quadrant prizes was amazing. I, too, look forward to the next one!

Finally recovering from SDCC! After some back and forth with my apt complex office last week and a scare after the delivery notification that my BOF was not in front of my door as expected I found out that...

My neighbor kindly took in my box and held it for me until I got home! I'll be picking up a Starbucks GC or something for him for being nice.

As for my box, no low numbers, but I at least got Maul, which was the main one I wanted.


Hopefully it wA the Glow in the dark one.


It was not. :(

But I'm happy to have it.

I heard next year it's going to be in that field along the water where they have the out door symphony concerts. That means there will possibly be more tickets to fundays but less prototypes to collect. Still would be good to finally get a better chance of going.


The Rady Shell! It's a brand new venue, opened during the pandemic. It looks really cool! I hear it will hold around double what the Hyatt holds now. So tickets should last 20 seconds instead of 10!

Opened my BoF when I returned from SDCC on Tuesday and for once I'm actually keeping all the pieces. Funko easily killed this drop for me.

Congrats on the Loki. Yeah, I agree, but overall enjoyed the event and all the stuff they gave us. I was surprised the Box of Fun outside of Fundays event had so many Freddy variants. A lot of good ones too.


The online box of fun this year had fantastic Freddys, I regret not trying. Last year’s online box of fun had me on the fence as I still have a bunch of Freddy’s that don’t fit my collection.



Yeah, i totally forgot about the online BoF. I was just trying to survive the con hehe.

Agreed, I was just happy and grateful to score tickets for our first Fundays, be able to see and hang out with friends all in one place at SDCC/Fundays (especially for those where this is likely the only time of the year to meet up), and celebrate the connections and friendships we've made.

I felt a bit awkward when first time funatics attending fundays for the first time felt sad & disappointed when they gout their BOF & Proto. I’m like you should be extremely happy that your here. Point Blank! Now I believe that lots of people attend this event on the sole purpose on what exclusives they get. :-/

Very well said. Scoring tickets alone made me extremely happy. After that stressful week in June, it was all worth it. 2 years with no fundays. This event made up for it.

Is this the end of the 1:24 Freddys I wonder?


Maybe it's the end of any Freddy below 500 :eek: :(



I think so as well. They talked about doing a outside fundays next year so maybe more people attending and higher count numbers.

The main downside of seeing Funko grow. Like, I'm happy for Funko, but at the same time, the exclusivity is dwindling. Hopefully they see that fewer pieces make things exciting! :)


agree with this... m sure we are in good hands with andrew and his team :)

Telling people that they should just be happy they get to go is very dismissive of their own feelings and opinions. I can be disappointed in the contents of the BOF while still very thoroughly enjoying the show. I was sad I couldnt run around before and after the show to try to hunt down a trade for a Freddy I really wanted. I was disappointed I couldn't get a Freddy Soda. Does this mean I don't appreciate the opportunity to get to go to my first Fundays? No. I thank Funko so much that I got to go and hope I can go next year. When expectations don't meet reality, you will be disappointed. Next year, if I have to opportunity to go, will I go in thinking we will all basically get the same items with higher piece counts, you betcha. That way if there are lower piece counts, I can be happy, but I can still be disappointed if they are fandoms that I don't collect and that's fine.

Speaking of contest, I liked the fact that we had to compete and win their main exclusive of the night. Rather than David Harbour and/or Mark Hamill RANDOMLY picking out 2 tables. That last game was exciting. 500 Piece compared to 40? I guess the BOF didn’t bother me as much as others. Lets consider this, this event was a RUSH JOB. I give Funko a ton of credit considering time was against them. I arrived early so I have plenty of time to settle in. Next year albeit that I attend I’m arriving much earlier.

Next year, if I have to opportunity to go, will I go in thinking we will all basically get the same items with higher piece counts, you betcha. That way if there are lower piece counts, I can be happy, but I can still be disappointed if they are fandoms that I don't collect and that's fine.


Speaking of contest, I liked the fact that we had to compete and win their main exclusive of the night. Rather than David Harbour and/or Mark Hamill RANDOMLY picking out 2 tables. That last game was exciting. 500 Piece compared to 40? I guess the BOF didn’t bother me as much as others. Lets consider this, this event was a RUSH JOB. I give Funko a ton of credit considering time was against them. I arrived early so I have plenty of time to settle in. Next year albeit that I attend I’m arriving much earlier.


I didn’t arrive till after 3 pm so I agree getting there earlier is a must, though not at 3 am, I’m sorry that is way too early and with the new venue I’m sure the line will be in the sun most of the day.

Telling people that they should just be happy they get to go is very dismissive of their own feelings and opinions. I can be disappointed in the contents of the BOF while still very thoroughly enjoying the show. I was sad I couldnt run around before and after the show to try to hunt down a trade for a Freddy I really wanted. I was disappointed I couldn't get a Freddy Soda.

That’s true. I wonder where it will take place.

I believe I heard it will be at the Rady Shell, which seems to be between the Hilton Bayfront and the Hyatt

Brian did mention the shell for next fundays.

I'm very happy with this year's public online release of Freddy's. Great variety and a bit of everything for everyone.

The Rady Shell! It's a brand new venue, opened during the pandemic. It looks really cool! I hear it will hold around double what the Hyatt holds now. So tickets should last 20 seconds instead of 10!


Hopefully, fundays truly is a highlight of the con and everyone deserves a chance to go


I thought it was great news when they said more would be able to attend next year \:D/


100%!!! Who cares about silly piece counts when more people will get to join in on the FUN!?!?!

Do you think an outdoor setting with a larger crowd will change the vibe or make it an all out better experience?

I was so stoked for Macho man I jumped up saying ohhhhh yeah in me best macho man voice. Being a female I had to dig deep inside to pull that one off. Loved the event but Macho man Freddy definitely made my night. Thank you Funko for that surprise!!!

I didn’t realize this as well until my friend pointed it out at our table. I ended up with the metallic Loki! Overall there were a bunch of Freddys this year, but I wish there was a little more variety at the event for trading though.


Yeah i would have liked to trade at the event but everyone had nearly the same ones


It made it really tough for sure. I should have brought some extras with me to trade.
