Great items and topic Bear!! Speaking of odd items, I've always been a huge fan of the old Funko Hockey jerseys; I remember the first time I ever saw one was when I first met TheZilla's!! Would love to own one of them, one day! [-o<

Guess this is the closest to being odd or obscure that I have...the never-produced Funko watch! Only ever seen one other in ShoMeNodders collection!

Oh wow Josh! That watch is fantastic! I wish they would make those. Definately an awesome part of your collection. I'm surprised by how many different items Funko has done.....lamps, shoes, watches....what is next?!

I would totally rock some Funko shoes and a watch. We have tees, hats, scarves, socks, and other wearables now. Why not bring back those Funko Flyers?

Someday I hope to own a Can o' Corn.

yes they were BUT there was also a 1/1 artist proof so I guess 49 total technically. Also there was one made of Ivan of FlapJack toys (the company Mike Becker started after he sold Funko to Brian)

I would have to say this is pretty rare,odd, awesome call it what you will :) In early 2014 closing in on my wedding, I knew that some of my awesome Funatic friends were making quite the trek to Canada (some even had to get their first passport) to be part of our special day and I wanted to say thank you. So I reached out to Brian and asked if I could get some blank shirt retro Freddys that myself and my wife could customize as Thank yous for the Funatic guest. Well Brain much to my surprise (really it shouldn't have been because the man is awesome) took my request one step further and had these made! My wife knew about the little ones being made for thank yous but I managed to keep the big one a surprise. The big one started the night on our reception table greeting everyone that came to the wedding, quickly became the talk of the wedding and eventually was the most requested dance partner of the night!

This may be considered odd.. I was sorting through some of my comics and spotted this little guy just hanging around staring at me like I was little redneck riding hood! Never-released rearview mirror hanger from Funko; actually a variant head for the Zombie Lounge Wolf. I'm sure some other veteran collectors may have a complete set..I know a few do :-)
