Gold Rat Fink wobbler

Postby AleX-Men » Sat Nov 14, 2020 2:53 pm

I saw an image of an all gold rat fink wobbler on an old funko spreadsheet. Can anyone confirm for me if this is real and how it was to be obtained?

And to answer your question here's a thread with all the Rat Finks.

viewtopic.php?f=120&t=54583&p=1049938&hilit=gold+rat+fink#p1049938

If you read the comments it looks like the gold does not exist.

I wish it was what I was looking for, though sadly it is not. I found a link to the rat fink wobbler section and in it there is an all gold rat fink wobbler. Yes, the Rat Fink wobbler has been faked and I wouldn’t be surprised if the same happened here:

There was a period, around 2006, where a wide variety of Wobbler lines were chromed as "exclusives" for Comic Con, with some having a sticker saying such. They are actually customs done in small quantities by a collector who worked with Mike in getting a variety of ad mascots into production.

I'm curious as well. So you are saying the one Alex is talking about in the Funko spread sheet is actually a custom and not produced by Funko?

I don't follow Rat Fink so I don't know any historical tidbits of what was/wasn't/rumored regarding any of the line. But I did want the chromed custom info out there as they surface often and I don't know of a complete list of characters that were customized to know if Rat Fink was a part of it or not.

Yeah, there are a lot of weird super limited wobblers and super limited customs. I really don’t know which this all gold Rat Fink is. Would Mike Becker or that collector know the answer to this?
