What was your very first Wacky Wobbler?

Postby TJLAUTERBACH » Wed Jan 27, 2021 8:23 pm

I was thinking about what to use for this week's Wacky Wobbler Wednesday and it got me thinking. What was your very first wobbler? How did you get it? Any pic's?
My very first wacky wobbler was Sprite boy Coca Cola. I was the lucky winner of a game Jason Swobobafett did at FDO. Yes, Jason you started me on my Wacky Wobbler adventure! Definitely been a very fun time while making lots of new friends along the way. Looking forward to many more years to come while spending it with all of you! Now lets hear those stories.

Great question Tim.

Probably not too tricky to guess my first wobbler; however, he wasn't bought alone.

It started with a work trip. I was in Rochester, NY, killing some time before i headed to the airport to go home. I found a huge antique/consignment store to walk around. When I saw this for sale for $5, little did i know it would lead me down a long and expensive road.

Image

When I got home, the pin made me wonder what else was out there. My initial search found this salt and pepper shaker.

Image

I loved the Huckleberry Hound character, but actually liked the Snagglepuss cartoons more. So, the salt and pepper shaker had me hungry for more. And that led me to the fateful ebay search that led me to these guys.

Image

And of course, that led to a couple thousand other pieces. Who knew? :D

Back in 2009 when Blockbuster was closing tons of its stores I picked up the mini holiday Darth Vader for a dollar or two because I thought it was cool. Had no idea it was Funko until 2013 when I started collecting. Not a clue what my second one was.

This is my first Wobbler and my first item in my collection that started it all! I got this Boba Fett Wobbler back in 2009 as a gift. I was and am a big Star Wars fan. The fact that this is the one that started it all is super special to me. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

I'm loving all of these stories. I think what I love the most about everything is just hearing all the memories and excitement they bring all of us. Some of these are just simple memories like eating Lucky Leprechaun cereal, watching cartoons and Alf and who could forget Star Wars and Big Boy was a favorite place we used to eat at. Ours closed up probably 20 years ago and is a Applebee's now. But still was a great family memory. Keep sharing what we all love!

Well I can say that Tate your first one isn't a bad one to start with. I mean he is the bounty hunter with skill which is needed sometimes in the Funko wild. Nice pic and thank you for the background on it. :freddy3:
