Funko Unveils New Comic-Con Booth Procedures

funko slider 3If there’s one company at San Diego Comic-Con that’s blown up in the last year or two, it’s Funko. And in order to meet the growing demand for their products, as well as to help streamline the process and keep the line moving quickly, they’re changing up the process at their booth for purchasing this year.

Now, attendees who are in line will receive an order sheet, and mark down each item that you want from the booth. There’s a limit of one of each item per customer, though we’ve confirmed they won’t be keeping track of those who have been through the line previously.

All orders will be filled based on availability.

Also new this year, exhibitors will not be permitted to purchase any items on either Preview Night, or during the first hour of the show floor on Thursday-Sunday.

You can find the full list of Funko San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, which includes everything from Marvel, Star Wars, Disney, Orphan Black, Sesame Street, Arrow, and much more, in our list of Funko SDCC 2015 Exclusives.

Here’s this year’s price list:

  • Pop!: $15 (2-pack $25)
  • 6” Pop!: $20
  • Pop! Rides: $40
  • Hikari: $50 or $80
  • Pop! Tees: $25
  • ReAction: $15 (Jaws $30)
  • Vinyl Idolz: $25
  • Dorbz XL: $25
  • Dorbz: $12

And from their site, here’s the full FAQ about this year’s new procedures:

How is the booth going to run this year?

We understand it is frustrating to wait in a long line! In an effort to streamline the process and keep the line moving quickly, we are moving to an order sheet system. Everyone in line will receive an order sheet. You will mark each item you want on this sheet. When you reach check-out, a Funko booth worker will take your order sheet and retrieve all the items you have marked.

Is there a limit?

There will be a strict limit of one of each item per customer.

What if I have other people in my group (children, friends, etc.)?

Each member of your group must have their own order form completed and be present at check-out. One person may pay for all the orders, but everyone must be present.

Will vendors be limited?

Attendees with “Exhibitor” badges will not be permitted to purchase any items on Preview Night or during the first hour of the show Thursday-Sunday.

If I fill out an order sheet, am I guaranteed to get everything I want?

Filling out an order sheet does not guarantee your order. Items may sell out before you reach the front of the line. Your order will be fulfilled based on availability at the time you reach check out.

Will other retailers be sharing any of these items?

Certain pieces will be available at other retailers in limited quantities. These retailers will make their own announcements regarding what pieces they will have in stock.

Can I buy anything at Fun Days?

No – Fun Days is a celebration! Nothing will be sold at Fun Days.
