Let’s start this week’s Nerdful Things with the news of the Mystery Funko POP! The option to buy a random Funko POP! from my in stock items (unless they sell out in which case I will order more random POP!s in) has been added to the store. I’m still looking at other mystery box options (other manufacturers as well as bigger boxes packed with goodies). As a bonus, the mystery box is being offered at a discounted price (cheaper than the cost of a regular POP!) for the first month.
Now, at this point I had intended on adding the other store additions here. I had left it for today to update but yesterday a bombshell hit my e-mail. A short and sweet e-mail with details of the SDCC Funko POP! pre-orders so I dropped everything. After a rush to break the news I managed to get the store updated and also hit up eBay. It’s taken a while in between my internet completely screwing up (I’ve rebooted my router countless times over the last 24 hours) as well as handling all the e-mails, messages and looking after 3 kids. Considering my current state of health I haven’t done too bad!
Anyhoo, enough about my woes! This week’s Nerdful things has now been hijacked by SDCC and I will to a bumper edition next week to cover what I was going to do originally!
You can view/pre-order the SDCC POP!s here.
I’ve submitted my figures to the distributor and hope to fulfill each and every order. In the event I can’t, full/partial refunds (where applicable) will be issued. Last year was less of a rush, considering I’d only been in operation for about 3 months. More warning was given regarding the available items but it came with the drawback that items were staggered from August to November and saw some MAJOR delays and turned into some cancellations. This year has seen a whirlwind tear through but the plus side is that the items are scheduled to drop much, much sooner. Most are scheduled for later this month with a couple in August and one in September/October. Details of estimated dates are on each product page.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the various announcements and news coming from San Diego and if you’re actually there or have been…well. I’m sure you’re feeling victorious after some epic hauls and signings etc!
