Press Release:

Funko, creators of highly coveted pop-culture vinyl collectibles and apparel, are returning to Emerald City Comic Con in 2018! Funko will once again be bringing several exclusive collectibles to the show floor and now is your chance to bring some home!

In order to streamline the process and fairly determine who will be eligible to enter the Funko booth at ECCC this year, we’re raffling off tickets so you can efficiently get into their booth and snag some Funko Exclusives that you can only get at ECCC!

Participation in this process is REQUIRED in order to reserve a time to visit and shop the Funko booth at ECCC. The lottery process will open at 12:00 PM PST on Monday, February 5 and close at 11:59 PM PST on Monday, February 12. All winners will be notified by Friday, February 23 of the date and time that they can line up at the Funko booth.

The Funko booth will open to the public each day AFTER the ticketed sessions (approximately 3pm each day of the show) if there is remaining inventory available. Ticketed sessions are given first priority and the only way to get a ticket to a session is to enter the lottery!


Session 1: report to the Funko Booth at 10:00 AM

Session 2: report to the Funko Booth at 1:00 PM

Funko Booth open to all fans at 3:00 PM – pending inventory
