ECCC - April 7-10, 2016
« on: August 05, 2015, 03:04:47 PM »
Things are starting to gear up! ECCC has announced that they will release badge types and prices on their site later this month, and that badges will go on sale in September. I already have hotel and airfare booked, so I'm going for sure.

Who else is excited for ECCC 2016 and its new 3.5 day format?

Actually, I'm glad for the weekend between. Last year ECCC and WonderCon were 2 weekends in a row and it was exhausting!

Sorry it crimps your plans, though. FWIW. I suspect you'd enjoy ECCC more than WonderCon.

It looks like ECCC is sending out surveys to previous attendees. Anyone else get one?

Yep. Was glad to see “Designer Toy Exhibitors” listed as one of the ideas they gauged interest on. It’s one of the things I’ve been asking for the past few years, and I’d think now under ReedPop they’re in more of a position than ever before to offer them.

Funko said in a Q&A on Periscope that they were considering attending ECCC. They said they were looking at expanding to other Cons in general, but mentioned ECCC specifically. Nothing is set in stone yet, but it's a great possibility!

It would be a low-hanging fruit for them since Funko is also based in Seattle metro. Funko had an official booth in 2014, but it wasn’t focused on exclusives. It focused on the charity pieces for ECCC’s auction and the launch of the DIY Pop (this also included a pretty silly green-colored DIY Pop that was dubbed an exclusive.) They had artists from Funko singing/drawing on the DIYs, which was very cool.

Also, while these weren’t Funko-sponsored, ECCC merch in 2012-2013 included exclusive Funko Pops (Stormtrooper Luke & Han in 2012, and Green Phoenix in 2013) which was well before every con and toy store in the universe had its own exclusive Pop.

That makes sense-I remember the auction now. The Willy Wonka DIY was so cool.

I believe Funko also had a Funatics get-together at ECCC last year.

I guess I better do my research next time (or just remember better-LOL!). I still think it's a cool prospect for this year. Hopefully they will do exclusives.
