Have they fixed the smell on your new jon snow fig?My Jon Snow came in from BBTS two days ago. Peg is indeed transparent, however the joints all move like they're supposed to. I don't have any issues with loose or overly stiff joints. His hands are a little more firm than I'd like although I'm able to get Longclaw in his hands no problem and once in place he holds it well. I'm very pleased.

I just wanted to check on the status of the replacement figures. I know that there are a couple of retailers who have received the new shipment, and I didn't know if you had received yours yet.
Is Funko happy with the new batch of figures, or are they suffering some of the same problems as the first shipment from the factory?
Thanks for your help.
Allison said:The new figures are perfectly fine, all the issues were addressed. We did receive a shipment, but they were sold out prior to our reception of the products. I will be able to take from the next shipment and make sure everyone receives their figures. Thank you for your patience! Please let me know if you any questions or concerns.
tatooinesandworm said:Thanks for the reply Allison. Glad to hear all the issues were resolved.
Do you know by any chance when the next shipment is expected?
Allison said:It is expected the first week of June. Thanks!
Apparently my bad luck carries over to my family as well. My nephew got me three of these for my birthday. I got a Joffrey, which was new to me, but the other two were yet another Viserion (my third!) and a second White Walker. Unreal.I picked up a few more of the Funko Mystery Minis. I've purchased four of these (total), and of course, I already have a double (Viserion). I think I have the worst luck with blind-packaged items.
At least the White Walker is an army builderApparently my bad luck carries over to my family as well. My nephew got me three of these for my birthday. I got a Joffrey, which was new to me, but the other two were yet another Viserion (my third!) and a second White Walker. Unreal.
Sigh, this is put up or shut up time from Funko. I really hope they don't disappoint, because I was really looking forward to the Firefly figs as well. But this just isn't worth the hassle they're putting us through. At this point I'd accept them offering me a refund and wash my hands of the Legacy line altogether.While hunting for the ever-elusive TBS 6" Stormtrooper at my local TRU (still no luck and I've been checking since February), I spotted all six GoT figures. To say I was surprised to see then would be an understatement. I still haven't gotten my replacements for Jon, Tyrion, or the White Walker from Funko, but I did pick up the other three (Dany, Ned, the Hound). I just opened Dany, and much to my chargrin, the joints are still transparent plastic and they still Reek. (Reek, Reek, it rhymes with bleak, which is how I feel). At least Dany didnt break before being removed from the packaging like the Tyrion I got in March. OMG I thought I just decapitated her, but it turns out she has a double-jointed head like the TBS 3.75 Scout Trooper.
Dany and Ned seem to be ok, but the Hound's arm came off as soon as I tried to move it Looks like these guys are going to Funko for replacing. I just can't win.
I am happy to report that my Ned and Dany are still in tip top shape, the new smell dissipated quickly, and I am 100% satisfied with them and have had some of my faith in Funko restored. The hound got returned to TRU. I saw a couple GoT Legacy figs at Books a Million, so they look to be carrying these guys as well.Sigh, this is put up or shut up time from Funko.

It's a little strange, but TOMOPOP is reporting that there will be a Hand of the King Tyrion figure slated for August 2014. The strange part is... it might be a Walgreens exclusive.
Leaked photo of Funko's Legacy Tyrion in Hand of the King outfit pops up - TOMOPOP
You can see the photo in the link. It looks awesome, by the way.
Why are they annoying? Just curious, never had to deal w/ Walgreens exclusives, but this one looks like one I'll have to pick up!Wow fantastic! I think this looks awesome, and better than the Wave 1 release. Walgreens exclusive is a bit annoying, however I have two right by my house so it shouldn't be too hard to track him down. Very excited!
I'd describe DH as "figurines" more than figures. They're virtually "Jumbo" versions of those little PVC figures that Disney puts out.Is the consensus on these then that the Funko are better than the Dark Horse figures? I know they're different since one is more of a statue while the other has articulation. But what about sculpt, paint, the fact that Funko figures smell funny?
For me its just annoying because I haven't been to a Walgreens in forever, don't have any that close to me, and assume that this means this figure will be a lot rarer than it should be. This has the potential to be the best figure of the Legacy line.Why are they annoying? Just curious, never had to deal w/ Walgreens exclusives, but this one looks like one I'll have to pick up!
me said:Good Morning Allison,
Hopefully you had a great weekend and are easing into a relaxing week. I am sure you guys are about to become really busy around there in order to get ready for SDCC. I know that I am excited to see what you guys have in store to show (Firefly Legacy maybe???)
I just wanted to check in with you to see if the replacement Game of Thrones Legacy figures had arrived yet. I haven't seen anything in the mail or a notification yet that the 6 figures I sent in for replacement have been sent out yet. Hopefully you were able to pull enough from your June order.
If there is a delay with the figures, I would appreciate any information you can provide.
Allison said:Thanks for your email! We did receive your figures. We are in the process of sending out all of the replacements now. We do appreciate your patience as this has been a lengthy process. I can tell you that we did pull enough figures from the June shipment, so we do have figures set aside for you. Hopefully this week we can have them all sent out! We are very busy with SDCC but we are doing our best to quickly resolve this.
Allison said:Thanks and have a good day!
