I'm gonna be positive and say they learned their lesson from last year. They know the funko hype is real!

It looks great, but with the fiasco last year, I won't bother trying to get it.

Hey, I've read through this thread but don't really understand what happened last year. Was it like a 2017 FUNimation SDCC fiasco?

Love the look of the Elvira in Purple and diamond. Curious if this will be as crazy to get as everyone is saying like last year.

Worse than that, if memory serves me they dragged it out all day long of not receiving the shipment into the night and then people had to come back the next day. They didn't even get the full shipment or didn't sell all of the pops which ended up being returned back to funko and sold on the funko shop as a surprise sale one morning. Some people got overly excited about not getting the pop and police were apparently called to the convention.

So, this is exactly what happened last year.

1) They advertise that the POPs are limited to 3 per person and that they won't be spreading out the assortment over several days. They are all first come first serve.

2) On the day of the convention people get in line, and not until several hours pass, do they say that the POPs aren't on hand yet, they are going to be delivered and will be there before end of show.

3) FINALLY, they start sending people at the front of the line in to get the POPs, but they restrict it to only a very small number and say that people need to come back the next day and try to get the POPs.

Needless to say people were very upset. And the show promoters refused to answer any questions. The main guy came with a megaphone and basically said "no more POPs today" and then just left. This prompted very angry response because the show promoters didn't have the courtesy to answer anybody's questions. Shortly thereafter, security came and forced everyone to leave the hall.

Thats what im hoping on. I feel like that the best way to do it with any LE peice. Especially if its a really low numbered LE peice on the funko shop. You don't want to give bots the chance to prepare for the shop. It should be whoever is quick on the draw. I know shock drops work because elvira was up for a couple minutes before she sold out :)

She’s so pretty and I’d love to give this as a gift to my coworker but with how limited she is, seems unlikely. I’ll keep an eye out though just in case.

I was at the show last year and the promotor actually blamed "Elvira's People" and went off on Pop collectors like a little kid. He embarrassed himself and the things he said weren't cool. It was really odd.

Fortunately, most of the real Pop lovers were mature and nice to one another which mattered most, whether they received the Pop or not. I didn't and still had a great time meeting her ;) . What a cool person. :freddy1: :freddy3: :freddy4: .

I am most likely going to have to resort to ebay to keep my Funk Elvira collection complete. I currently have all the Pops, Pez, Minis, keychains, Cereal & Rock Candy. According to the post, about 100 are un-accounted for, so who knows if they will go online or be at HQ or maybe just extras to keep back just in case. Last year, Elvira's fan club sent out an email about some being sold online, but they were gone from the funko-shop before that email was even sent out.

Yeah I think it was the only way that people would have ample and equal opportunity to purchase to be honest.

Probably one that I'll only get if it goes on to the shop like the orange dress did. I didn't mind paying more and it went to charity so that was even better. I do dig the purple way more than orange though, heh.

Its the best alternative for them to cop. Hopefully they are reading this and considering to bless us with more LE shock drops. I think its invigorating - even when I strike out I find enjoyment out of it. Its a adrenaline rush.
