Funko Lottery at ECCC 2018

by Transmute Jun

Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC) has announced the details for attendees wishing to purchase exclusives at the Funko booth at the 2018 convention (to be held March 1-4). General attendees, press and professionals may register for the lottery beginning February 5. Attendees will be randomly sorted into buying sessions, and will be notified whether or not they have been assigned to a session by February 23. Sessions will be at 10 am and 1 pm each day of the convention, with the booth opening up to anyone who wishes to purchase remaining inventory at 3 pm each day.

While there is no official statement regarding inventory allocation, last year Funko held back exclusives each day, to ensure that attendees could purchase exclusives every day of the con. In 2017, I had a lottery allocation for Sunday morning, and I was able to purchase any of the exclusives I wanted (i.e. nothing had sold out for the con at that time).

To qualify for a buying session, attendees must have a valid ECCC badge for that day. Additionally, buying sessions are not transferable and IDs will be checked when attendees enter the Funko line.

More details regarding the Funko lottery are posted here.
