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!

Don"t you just love these. Mine is blue and also has the chain attached. Truly the "old days" at the conception of the Funko phenomenon. Thank you for sharing these wonderful remembrances.

This is extremely special to me as a hockey fan and a Funko fan! Had only ever seen a picture of a picture of one of these and now I actually own one!

Think these were from 2003..not sure of the event, but I know were limited to 48....

Absolutely awesome!!! I have a very early Funko t-shirt that is from Sparkys on the Universal Studios walk. It advertises both Funko and Sparkys and comes from the early Mike Becker days. One of my favorite oldies.

I agree! These are awesome to see and a great piece of Funko history.
I love that hockey jersey though I don't think I would wear it to a game. That's one to get framed all nice and pretty.

I was going to frame it, but I decided to wear it over my jacket when I was out last Wednesday but as I started heading towards Florida, I had to peel it off cause I was sweating to death lol

Actually it's not the same, but very good eye Brett!! I actually got that shopping cart from a garage sale in Toronto a few years back, even before i began collecting Funko. It just fit the occasion perfectly in my opinion, so i used it in the pic :-) It is actually a marketing stores business card holder as the guy that owned it worked in the company's marketing department. It was a fun find while browsing through his garage \:D/

Thanks guys!! Those were never sold, only worn by the Funko Booth workers; there is believed to be only be 8 or so of the aprons, but the hats were a little higher as i remember reading a few were given out to other Con folks as well; mine pictured was never worn.

You got me thinking. I have to find my shirt with SD Padres figure swinging his bat, worn by the booth workers a couple of years ago. Maybe someone can let me know what year the Funko Booth had the workers wear the Padres tribute. As soon as I find it I will take a pic and show it.

This may not be Odd in terms of Funko. In this picture are some banks I have collected over the years(Not Funko). the pig is one I made(I think I just painted it!) in kindergarden and it has lasted me a long time. The robot was a gift from my GF. I am glad to add this Big Boy Blue Foot bank.

I am not sure why they made the blue foot version but maybe someone can shed some light on that for me.
