Nerd News: Demand for Dwight Pop Breaks Funko’s new Website

You might have noticed that the Funko website changed over the past week or so, and personally I don’t like it much. It has become just a sales website, streamlined for making money (which I get for Funko as a company), but for people who can’t buy from the site (such as anyone outside the USA), the website just doesn’t have that much value for us any more… Hopefully they’ll bring back some of the old features.

However it experienced it’s own issues on the 26th June when the new Dwight from the Office pop was released… The site just could not handle the demand and there were all sorts of issues, especially when it came to calculating shipping… Which is funny since they have a flat shipping rate.

They have addressed the issue and it should be going back on sale some time next week.

Some people were able to get it either online or from the two Funko shops which look like they’re open as usual. As a result there are some selling on eBay for $50 to $120… People, wait a bit – the demand for this pop is crazy and if you’re a US based customer you’ll get a chance to buy it again next week for just $15… It’s not a $100+ pop yet… it hasn’t sold out yet. Apparently they still have plenty of stock for when the online sale can restart next week so stay patient.

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
