Monitoring now includes Fugitive Toys
https://www.fugitivetoys.com/ is now supported with @FunkoFugitive on Twitter as well as on the Funko Pop sub-reddit. This is in anticipation of the LE 500 Andy Dwyer Funko POP!s that will be releasing soon. All exclusives will be posted to that Twitter account and to Reddit. All commons will be posted to @FunkoRelease on Twitter.
Consider supporting this work via Patreon if you want to see more of these changes as adding new stores usually increases the cost of maintaining the servers.
Funko Blog now has longer timeout
Many news posts are scraped from https://funko.com/blogs/news and posted to Reddit/Twitter. However, a timeout that was too low was preventing the site from being scraped correctly. Increasing the timeout from 30 seconds to 45 seconds fixed this issue and now the blog site is scraped correctly again.
Added more support for image scraping on the Funko Blog
Images are stored in a CDN that Funko maintains. Scraping for these URLs allows us to build compilation images of all products showcased on a blog. Funko recently started using a new CDN so support has been added to scrape these images.
