One of the most pop!ular Funko figures from this year’s WonderCon was the exclusive Pop! Rides Trafalgar Law with Polar Tang.
But the One Piece star didn’t arrive in our collections without a bit of chaos. What more do you expect from a character who goes by the epithet of the “Surgeon of Death?”
Traditionally speaking, Funko divides its con figures between Convention (found at the show) and Shared Exclusives (Pop!s found in stores such as Target, Walmart and Hot Topic). These are the same Pop! figures, but are delineated by the sticker on the front of the box.
Pop!s with Convention Stickers normally fetch a higher estimated value on PPG, mainly because of their increased difficulty to get and lower production runs.
The fans packing the Anaheim Convention Center in late March for WonderCon ’23 found Conventions Stickers on their favorite Pop!s at the Funko booth, including Tawaret, Gelatinous Cube (Blue) and lots more.
Simultaneously, Funko hunters in the stores were finding the same Pop!s, only with the Shared Exclusive Sticker.
And all was right with the world.
All except Trafalgar Law, that is. Its Convention and Funko-Shop Exclusive feature the same Convention Sticker – despite images online of Trafalgar with the Shared Sticker.
We here at PPG initially added both versions to the guide.
And chaos reigned for days. Families were torn against one another, cats and dogs teamed up to fight birds, the Earth’s magnetic poles… err… ok.. maybe that’s a bit of an over- dramatization.
Once we figured out what the kerfuffle was, we eliminated the superfluous one and merged its price points into the real one.
And order was restored to the Pop Price Guide Universe.
Today Trafalgar Law with Polar Tang has an estimated PPG value of $120!
All of this has us thinking about Stickers. After all, Funko Box Stickers can be a sticky topic, for some.
