The Sandcrawler #44: Making Fun: The Story of Funko Red Carpet Report!

MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE TITLED THIS ONE "DAN AND MAC'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE!"  WE WERE IN HOLLYWOOD FOR A CRAZY COUPLE OF DAYS INCLUDING A RED CARPET MOVIE PREMIERE!

Thanks to the awesome folks at Funko, we were invited to the premiere of the new documentary, Making Fun: The Story of Funko.  It was an amazing time for these two little podcasters and we've got all the details!

After some airline snafus we made it to Los Angeles, checked into our hotel and spent the evening at the Star Wars-themed bar, Scum & Villainy Cantina with the hosts of the Funko Funcast podcast and WWE Superstar, Zak Ryder.

The next morning we went to Downtown Disney at Disneyland so Mac could get a tiny fix of Disney magic and also to pick up the Droid Factory exclusives from The Last Jedi.  A quick dinner at Bubba Gump's at Universal City Walk and we were ready for our first red carpet, Hollywood premiere!

We had a blast walking the red carpet and meeting other guests. The movie was a love letter, not only in celebration of Funko's twenty years but for the fans too. Check out our YouTube channel for an unboxing video of some exclusive merchandise that Funko handed out to those in attendance.

Give us an iTunes review, tag us on Twitter or send us an email and we'll feature it on an upcoming episode!
