NYCC 2020 Funko Fall Convention Exclusives Launch at Hero Stash this Saturday!
This year there will be way less stock than usual, the wholesaler has indicated that all stores will receive less stock than ordered and that they have less than previous years. This means that many exclusives will sell out quickly and with low chances of re-stocks.
As usual we cannot give out any information about what exclusives we will have or pre-sell any of them. Funko have leaked their exclusives on their blog.
We will physically have the stock in our store from this Saturday 10 October 2020 from 8.30am (SA time).
In order to give as many collectors as possible a chance at securing what they want we will be splitting the stock between our Online store and our physical retail store. We will also have a limit of 1 of the same item per person for the first hour of the launch. Items which are ‘Out of Stock’ on the website may become available again later on the day as we consolidate store inventory with website inventory.
This is how the drop will work:
- Our Online store (www.herostash.com.au) will go live with NYCC stock at 8.30am (SA time) on Saturday 10 October 2020.
- All products listed will be physically in stock and shipped as fast as possible or will be ready for in store pick up immediately.
- There will be a limit of 1 of the same exclusive per person for the first hour, any orders with multiple of the same product will be cancelled and refunded in full. After 9:30am there will be no limit.
- Any items that are “Out of Stock’ may become available again as store inventory is consolidated with the website inventory.
- Stock levels will be reflective of what we receive prior to Thursday. We will be re-stocking most products the week after launch
- Our physical retail store (Shop 2, 79 Hampstead Road, Manningham 5086) will open earlier than normal and at launch time, 8.30am (SA time) on Saturday 10 October.
- There will be a limit of 1 of the same item per person for the first hour.
- Stock levels will be separate from the Online store so if products are sold out Online, they may still be available in store.
We will do our best to help as many collectors get what they want, but unfortunately the nature of exclusives means that they are limited pieces some products will be sold out in a matter of minutes.
Q - Can I pre order?
A – No, we are under contractual obligations to not pre-sell any items before 8.30am on Saturday. All NYCC exclusives are sold on a first come first served basis.
Q – Can you hold an item for me to pick up in store?
A – We cannot hold any products without prior payment, this is to ensure everyone has a fair chance.
If you would like to hold a product for store collection you can purchase Online and use the Pickup in Store option when you get to the shipping page. Then the product is reserved for you immediately until you can collect it.
Q - Can I purchase multiple of the same product?
A – Not for the first hour, there will be a limit of 1 of each exclusive per person both Online and In-Store. After 9.30am on Saturday you can purchase multiple of the same product.
Q – Will you get limited number pieces and Funko Shop exclusives?
A – We cannot officially confirm or deny any of the products we will be selling, but we will have around 26 different lines which covers most exclusives. We do not anticipate to have any exclusives that are ‘number limited’, e.g. 2000 pieces.
Whilst we will not be stocking these on Saturday we will be working very hard to bring in as many of these type of exclusives as we can from overseas. Whatever we do get will be sold in our Rares & Uncommons section and only sold once in stock. This will take some time to physically receive products.
Q – What time will you sell Online?
A – Products will go live at 8.30am (SA time) on 10 October 2020.
Q – What time will your store open?
A – Our store will open at 8.30am (SA time) on 10 October 2020.
Some tips to help secure what you want:
- Have a clear list of what products you want in priority order
- Login to the website before 8.30am on Saturday and ensure that your shipping address is correct
- Remember what time zone you are in and the time difference to SA time
- Redeeming Acorns or using other discount codes may slow you down
- Check out with PayPal for the fastest checkout
- Remember that some products will be in extremely limited quantities. You may wish to order those straight away before ordering other exclusives.
If you have any questions please contact us via email or Social Media and we will do our best to help. Please understand that this is our busiest time of the year and we may be slower than normal to get back to you. Dispatch of Online orders will take longer than usual, but we will get them out as fast as possible.
