As collectors gear up for an upcoming Funkoween WAX NFT drop, which is part of Funko's traditional Happy Halloween celebration, it is worth taking a moment to revisit one of the most coveted Funko NFT collections featuring the beloved Stranger Things characters.
Since the release of the first episode of Stranger Things on Netflix in 2016, NFT fans have eagerly awaited the moment when their favorite characters would step into the world of Web3. The exciting launch of the inaugural digital Stranger Things NFT set became a reality on July 13, 2023. Enthusiasts when enthusiasts rushed to seize the opportunity to obtain physical Funko Pop figures by collecting and opening numerous Stranger Things Funko Pop NFT packs.
Whether your heart belongs to Eddie Munson, Steve Harrington, Robin Buckley, Max Mayfield, or Erica Sinclair, there is something for everyone in the Stranger Things NFT collection. Even if you are not particularly into Season 4 of the series, the collection is still worth it.
The highly-awaited crossover has finally occurred, and the stars of Stranger Things have made their mark in the NFT universe. This opens up an exciting opportunity for collectors to obtain NFT renditions of iconic characters such as El, Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Nancy, Hopper, and many more. These NFTs are more than just digital collectibles. They represent a whole new dimension of the Stranger Things universe to explore. Are you ready to embark on this Eleven-worthy journey? Let's explore the collection in more detail.
The Stranger Things Funko Pop NFTs and exclusive physical collectibles
So, how does this all come together? You build your collection of digital Funko Pops by opening packs purchased through droppp.io or acquired on a secondary marketplace. Alternatively, you can look for a particular type of Stranger Things Funko Pop NFT your collection misses.
NFThive was one of the places where the Stranger Things Funko Pop NFTs were still offered in their original packs at the time of publication. On this platform, the prices for a Premium pack began at approximately $39, while a Standard pack was available for a minimum of $12.75.
To unlock the door to physical collectibles, you must assemble a set of Grail, Legendary, or Royalty NFTs, which makes you eligible for a coveted Redemption Token. A Royalty Set is comprised of a combination of Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic Funko NFTs. You need to keep track of them to confirm your qualification for a Royalty Set.
On November 10, 2023, at 11 AM PT, a snapshot of your inventory will be taken. For every Grail, Legendary, or Royalty Set in your possession, you will receive a Redemption Token with a 30-day window for redemption. Be cautious, as Funko recommends to avoid opening packs or transferring items for at least an hour before or after the snapshot time to ensure your items are included in the snapshot. Once your redemption process is complete, you will receive a tracking link, and your limited edition physical collectibles will soon be on their way to you.
Interestingly, many collectors have their sights set on the Eddie Munson Funko Pop NFT, often overlooking the other characters, including the dragon. It seems the poor dragon is losing the battle against Eddie Munson being a little bit underrated in the eyes of collectors!
