Behold the Almighty ’Star Wars‘ And Disney Funko SDCC 2017 Exclusives
It wouldn’t be a San Diego Comic-Con without a massive booth from Funko full of all sorts of exclusives. The vinyl figure company has its hands in just about every single license on the planet, but some have proven to be much more popular than others. Case in point, the wide variety of Disney characters that disappear from shelves faster than milk and bread in a blizzard. It also helps that now Disney can count everyone from Star Wars under its umbrella, giving Funko a tremendous one-two punch when combined with the more animated side of the Mouse House. That goes double when it comes to SDCC exclusive items.
To obtain any Funko items, you’ll first need to enter the lottery every morning at the Sails Pavilion, though location of that is subject to change. There, you’ll be able to enter for the chance to get a wristband, which will then give you the opportunity to stand in line to purchase items. You are not guaranteed any single item, just the privilege of getting in the line with the hope what you want hasn’t sold out by the time you reach the front. Daily allotments mean that not everything will last until the show floor closes, and often Funko’s booth is laid bare well before a given day’s final hours.
As has been the case the past few conventions, Funko is teaming with a number of retailers to offer these collectibles as shared exclusives. Partners like Hot Topic and Toys R Us will carry some, but not all, of the items Funko offers at Comic-Con, though there is no telling when they might show up at traditional brick and mortar stores. It’s also not clear yet what items are going to be shared exclusives, so do keep an eye out for what you want if you happen to be at the show itself.
