Anyone get a Stranger Things Robin in a Steve Box?

Postby misterjstewart » Fri Jul 27, 2018 3:09 pm

At Fundays, my table got Steve in the Robin box. I was just wondering if anyone got the opposite.

You mean my Steve in a Robin Box Error isn't worth a Bazillion dollars?! Dang lol Seriously though, I'm hoping there's someone with the opposite error so I can trade my extra Steve and have a set.

I'm telling you, this must have happened because funko got all the parts at the very least moment. The way the boxes were folded haphazardly tells me someone was packing those boxes as quickly as possible at HQ. Someone out there has your Steve.

One possible controbuting factor could be the sheer amount of Freddys they had to prepare for Fundays this year (~30,000). Not gonna complain though, was an excellent move on their part!

Everyone at our tables on the Ghosbusters team got the them in the right boxes!
Been collecting since 2012!! Absolutely love everything funko related. Current pop count of pops in my collection is over 1800 in box and out of box!!

The main line I collect is ad icons. But as soon as more myths come or expect me to go HAM on that line! Absolutely love flocked pops too!!

Our two sets we received were correct but I agree with everyone else, it definitely means there are some Robins in Steve boxes out there that got swapped with yours and hopefully you can find someone to trade with.

The Freddy boxes werent folded strangely, just every Steve and Robin that I saw. Round creases, flaps not all the way in, etc.

Oh no! That would make for an interesting display. I'd imagine that this would be the place to find the correction.

Hopefully you can find your counterpart and you both can have a complete set.

I have the Steve, I'm missing the Robin. Not a big deal but just thought it would be Funny to display them in the wrong boxes. I'm weird that way. That said all the boxes I got were in mint shape. Funko went above and beyond this year not only for attendees but for the folks who couldn't go. Nothing but love for the company coming from me. =D>

I'm not complaining lol I think it's pretty hilarious TBH. I think Funko did a fantastic job with this year's event and I am glad I got to take part.

Our table was correct. Were you sitting in the Gremlins section? I actually think I remember you trying to bring this to the attention of the prize patrol without much avail. Sorry!

We were in Gremlins.
Our Steve Ahoy bag was perfect with 10 Steves, but our Robin bag had 9 Robins and 1 Steve (each boxed with the correct Pop inside). Since I was with my daughter and we each got a pair of the Pops, I made sure that the man who got stuck with 2 Steves went home with a Robin and Steve. So we have 1 Robin and 3 Steves.

I just saw one of those Steve in the Robin box on mercari and they're trying to pass it off as some rare factory error...

Our Goonies table also managed to get the proper set. However I did notice a lot of the Freddys that we received had lots of minor box damages

The boxes were definitely packed in a hurry. the plastic on a lot of mine from that night is rounded and the box corners weren't all the way tucked in. I took most of mine out of the box though so it was okay lol

Whoa, I didn't know some of the Pops pulled ol' switcharoo. I think my set is ok, but I hope you are able to find someone with the opposite problem as yours so you can do a trade!
