The Ultimate Guide To Funko House Of The Dragon NFTs
The intrigue of medieval politics returns as Funko NFTs takes us back to Westeros with their new collection, Funko House Of The Dragon NFTs.
If you are thirsty for more Targaryen civil war and can't wait until a likely summer 2024 release of the second HBO instalment, then Funko has your back. There are six physical House Of The Dragon Funko Pops to whet your appetite while waiting for the show to return.
Some of the Funko Pop designs for this NFT set are top-notch, so keep reading to learn more.
1. Funko House Of The Dragon NFT Packs
Funko offers the usual two NFT packs at launch - a Standard ($9.99) and a Premium ($29.99) option.
|No. of NFTs
This is a large drop and it matches the previous Funko Game Of Thrones NFTs in size. I'm not a fan of the bigger drops. The physical pop rewards are often inflated to match the pack volume, which reduces the appeal of limited piece counts (outwith the grail, which just becomes harder to pull).
The uptick is that you can often find packs for retail or even below retail on the secondary market, so it is more accessible for those who want to rip packs without completely breaking the bank.
Your First Funko NFT Drop?
If this is your first Funko NFT drop, the only difference between a standard and premium pack is the number of NFTs inside. For example, there are no perks for buying a premium pack over three standard packs.
Packs will be available on launch day on Droppp.io and can only be bought with a credit/debit card. The drop is limited to $60 per transaction and you can rejoin the queue to buy more, but this is highly unlikely due to demand.
You can enter the pack queue around 10 minutes before launch (the 'Purchase In' timer will change to 'Join The Queue').
If you fail to grab packs at launch, you can buy from the secondary market (guide further down).
In general queuing is not a level playing field unless you know some inside tips. When you enter the queue, you are randomly assigned a position once the drop begins. If you arrive after the cut-off time, you will join the back of the queue.
You can have multiple positions in the queue by using Mozilla Firefox and the containers extension. This allows you to open up multiple tabs that separate cookies, allowing for numerous unique queue entries. Droppp will block a queue entry from the same account once you reach around 7 entries.
So many are multi-tabbing the queue that you're at a serious disadvantage if you don't do this. If you can't beat them, join them.
I would also avoid joining the queue on mobile. Too often you will get the dreaded 'your moving around too much' due to the dynamic nature of a mobile IP address. You will lose your position in the queue or will be blocked from buying.
Finally, if you are trying to buy on a shared network, like in an office, you can also get the message that 'you're coming on too strongly' and that you are already in the queue when you aren't.
This is because someone else on the shared network will also be trying to access the drop, so I would avoid this if possible to avoid being kicked out as it's difficult for you to control.
2. House Of The Dragon NFT Collection & Rarities
Daemon, Viserys, Aemond and more get the Funko NFT treatment.
Everyone wants to get hold of those rare legendary and grail NFTs, so here are your pull odds:

Take a look at the average pulls for House Of The Dragon based on the packs you plan to rip!
Simply input how many Premium and Standard packs you plan to buy. You can also change the cost of the packs to match any secondary market purchases (simply work out your average $ rate per pack type).
You will also see the cumulative probability of a Grail Pull. Just a fun way to show probability with the more packs purchased.
The actual outcome of any given pack purchase will still be subject to random chance. Pack opening should just be for fun, if you want a specific Funko Pop from the drop then I highly recommend you buy from the secondary market.
A 1-of-1 is an ultra-rare, non-redeemable but very valuable NFT. The odds of pulling from a standard pack is 20832/1 for this drop. This will appear as a bonus 6th slot within your pack.
A premium pack gives you the same odds as pulling a 1-of-1 as 3 standard packs (6943/1). There are a total of six 1-of-1 NFTs available for this drop, featuring both Max Tokenhead and Freddy Funko in gold, silver and bronze variants.
A Series Coin is another bonus collectable NFT (non-redeemable) that will also appear in the 6th slot if pulled. The odds for pulling a Series coin in a standard pack is 9/1 and 2.33/1 in a Premium Pack (which is the same odds as buying 3 standard packs).
Ever wondered how many House Of The Dragon packs have been opened? The number of Legendary or Grail NFTs still to be found? Or the top account holders of each redeemable pop?

3. Mastery & Physical Redemption
There are a total of Six House Of The Dragon Funko Pops! to collect.
Daemon is the Funko NFT Grail of the drop, Vhagar the Royalty, whilst Viserys, Rhaenyra, Aemond and Ser Criston make up the Legendary.
Five of these can be claimed by collecting the Grail (limited to 999) and the four Legendary (limited to 2,600 each) NFTs.
We already have House Of the Dragon Funko Pops, but there are some great designs on offer here.
The standouts are King Viserys and Aemond. If only Viserys was the grail, it deserves to be a 999-piece count, but we have Daemon for that which is a little on the bland side.
Ser Criston Cole will be the weakest of the set, but we may have an idea to fix that:

All redemption dates for all Funko NFT sets can be found here:
The Royalty collection reward is claimed when you complete the entire 95 NFT set (excluding legendary, Grail, Series Coin and 1-of-1).
In simple terms, if you collect all 40 common, 25 uncommon, 18 rare and 12 epic variants from the set, you'll have completed the Royalty Collection and will be able to redeem an exclusive Vhagar, Queen Of All Dragons (above), which means no Freddy Funko for this drop! when redemption coins are distributed.
The royalty set is always popular when a Freddy Funko is up for grabs, so it's a disappointment not to see him return here. The design for Vhagar looks great, but the piece count is a little high for my liking (3,500).
Grail, Legendary and Royalty redemption coins will be distributed to you on June 28 2023 (the full 95 NFT Royalty set needs to be in one wallet, not across the two). You will then have 30 days to redeem your physical by July 28, 2023.
All House Of the Dragon Physical Funko Pops! are expected to be shipped in Q4 2023.
4. New to Funko NFTs?
If you are new to Funko NFTs and can't wait to get your hands on some of the epic redeemables, here are a few things you need to get started.
You will need to sign-up for a Funko Droppp wallet.
This wallet allows you to store your new House Of The Dragon NFTs, keep Daemon and the gang safe, open Funko packs and redeem physical rewards.
Learn how to register for a free or paid account, open packs, redeem physicals and more in our ultimate Droppp guide:
WAX Wallet & Secondary Market
You may miss out on the launch day drop, have the thirst for more Funko Packs, or want to buy singles to finish off your Royalty set.
To do all of this, you will need to buy from the secondary market. To get set up you will need a WAX cloud wallet .
Droppp and WAX Cloud are two completely separate NFT wallets, but it is possible to transfer your Funko NFTs between them which is needed to trade on the secondary market.
When we talk about the secondary market, we mean a peer-to-peer marketplace such as AtomicHub. You can learn how to buy NFTs from the AtomicHub in our article below:
There is also a new pay-by-credit card option on AtomicHub that I haven't yet tested but will write a guide soon. You will still need a WAX wallet to use this feature.
You can also use WAXP tokens to purchase from AtomicHub. Read our guide below and learn how to buy WAX:
