San Diego Comic-Con, known by us nerds in the biz as SDCC, has always been an event that excites pop culture enthusiasts and collectors alike. One of the highlights of SDCC is the exclusive merchandise, and Funko has consistently delivered with their highly sought-after Pop! vinyl figures. Funko recently revealed that they'd be doubling their presence at Comic Con this year, which has left fans more excited than ever to see what plethora of goodies will be on offer for this year's summer convention.
If you're like us, and nowhere near the excitement in the states (we feel ya) then you'll no doubt be wondering how many of these will be made available to us down under, too. Well, we've got exciting news, collectors, because Funko have just unveiled their line-up of SDCC exclusives for 2023, and fans are buzzing with excitement! Let's take a closer look at some of the incredible Funko exclusives that will be gracing the convention this year, and which goodies we may hopefully be able to get our hands on overseas.
"Here’s some of what to expect at Funkoville at San Diego Comic-Con 2023," Funko announced on their blog and socials between a staggered posting schedule from late last week to early this week. "Along with the... selection of convention exclusive collectibles, there will be a variety of mainline items to snag as well. We won’t ruin the surprise. We just know you’re going to love them!" [x]
As always, we can't confirm exactly what will be made available to us until the time of the drop. To be honest, the mystery is half the fun, and as we get closer and closer to the big day we'd like to remind you all that you can keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for the official time/date of the drop, an announcement that typically takes place in the weeks leading up to the convention weekend. This year, the bulk of SDCC celebrations are happening between Friday July 21st and Sunday July 23rd, so it's very likely the online exclusives drop will occur during this time. If previous years are any indication, we may see yet another late-night online drop for us Aussies!
Funko's SDCC exclusives for 2023 are poised to be a hit among collectors and fans alike. It's exciting to see, as many fans have had strong opinions on the line-ups of the last few years past. From Marvel and DC Comics to Disney and Star Wars, it looks like there's something for everyone in this exciting line-up. Whether you're a dedicated Funko collector or simply a fan of these popular franchises, these exclusives offer a unique opportunity to add a touch of magic and nostalgia to your collection.
