Wacky Wobbler Star Wars History

Postby maythefunkobewithyou » Thu Mar 23, 2017 3:18 am

This is a quick post regarding the history of Wacky Wobblers, but more specifically, the Star Wars line. As such, it skips a lot of the history of the other lines. If you want to recreate/replicate/cite this post in part or in whole, please contact us prior to proceeding. If you see any inconsistencies, please do let us know so we can correct them.

Feel free to check out our other Star Wars Funko History posts:

In 1998, Funko was formed by Mike Becker and their very first product was actually a Wacky Wobbler - Bob's Big Boy. He got the licensing rights because he wanted a coin bank of the character but did not want to pay the insane collectors prices for the existing item ($1000+)
Image

In 2007, after Brian Mariotti was already in control of Funko (Announced Fundays #3 in 2005), he announced the agreement with Lucasfilm to produce Star Wars Wacky Wobblers! This meant that Funko can apply its beloved wobbler style to the gicantic license that is Star Wars and allow for fans to see their favorite characters reimagined in a new form. This was huge news for Funko and evidence of their growth and increasing respect in the collectibles community. (See Brian's post)
Image

Along with July's first wave of Vader and Clone Trooper, Funko released Holo Vader and Shock Trooper at SDCC 2007.
Image
Image

Additionally, in 2007 Entertainment Earth had what they called a "Holiday" Boba Fett. It was Boba Fett Droids (holiday special), a repaint of the regular, 2000pcs.

I do have a bit of trivia to add here though. Originally, the darth vader wobbler was going to have a smaller head (images 4 and 5 below), however they decided to increase the size for the final production pieces (images 1-3 below). What is odd, is that the holo vaders (images 6 & 7 below) still retained the original smaller head.
Image


Series 1 made it into the 2008 catalog (along with series 2)
Image
Image

It is interesting to note that Wacky Wobbler rides were introduced with Series 1 (Vader with tie fighter) and Series 2 (Luke with x-wing). Vader also had a chase variant with a black tie fighter.
Image
Image

In 2008, Entertainment Earth also got it's first true "Holiday" full size Wacky Wobbler Vader, also 2000pcs like their 2007 Boba.
Image

Also in 2008, Funko added Holiday Yoda and Jawa. In 2009, Vader and C-3PO. And finally in 2010, R2-D2 (image from 2010 catalog when we first see them printed)
Image

Starting with Vader in 2008, Funko made Computer Sitters that came with 3M sticky tape on the bottom to place on top of your monitor; by 2011, all 3 were included in the Toy Fair Catalog.
Image

In 2010, Funko introduced the Monster Mash up series where they mixed Star Wars characters with universal monsters that included the following 4.
Image
Image

In 2011, Funko introduced WiseCracks, a new line that had clever puns on the bases of the StarWars wobblers. The image below is from the 2014 catalog and includes the newly added Han & Chewie.
Image

In 2011, Monster Mash up minis were introduced (~4.5inch vs 7), adding jawa and tusken raider. It is unclear whether they were designed with the intention of making them minis, but them and the original monster mash up line from 2010 were made into the minis.
Image

Trivia - Maul's monster artwork was revealed in the 2011 catalog but was never made :-/
Image

In 2013, the Angry Birds Star Wars Mash up became a thing. Lasted about as long as the game's popularity.
Image

More importantly, in 2013, the catalog featured the new *Mini* wobblers/bobble heads line up (made in 2010)! They were sold in sets of 2 and there were 3 different sets to choose from. They really are mini!
Image

I might have some of those facts mixed up, it's been a long time since I bugged someone for that information :)


In 2016 the Wobbler line (no longer wacky) was introduced during ECCC and the Star Wars line was added in August, including iconic characters such as Leia and Boba Fett. These Wobblers combine the stylized appeal of Pop! with traditional bobblehead design.
Image
Soon after the same 2016 year, the line was expanded to include new Rogue One characters such as Jyn Erso
Image

During ECCC, Yoko also showed a slide with Kylo and Rey wobblers which we have yet to see. Given that they are TFA style, they may have been cancelled but it seems like they were far along in development so hopefully not.
Image

In March 2017 the first Con exclusive Wobbler from the new line was introduced. A repaint of the Boba announced in 2016 but this time white (proto armor) for Star Wars Celebration.
Image
Image

In August of the same year, Funko revealed The Last Jedi Wobblers, which include ones such as this adorable Chewie with Porg.
Image

In 2018, along with the other Solo merch, a few Wobblers were added, including the smooth talking smugglers - Lando.
Image

All in all, the wacky wobbler & wobbler lines contain over 81 pieces (~8 Wobblers and the rest Wacky Wobblers) and around 55 WW chases with a clear base.

The Wacky Wobblers line contained many Star Wars chases (all 1:36 and with clear/chrome-colored base) with the most rare one being the Holo Darth Maul. This is because it was a 480 limited and so it had about 12 chases only!
Image

Also, while these were never released, they are definitely worth mentioning! These unreleased Clone Freddy Wacky Wobblers were ¼ (chrome base), ⅓ (for regular base) and the black hair is 1/1 test piece

The Funko Force Star Wars line was one of the biggest pushes Funko made. The shirts for the booth workers in 2010 were Star Wars based. I still have one somewhere.

Blue chrome

Thats what I thought, the write up says "... chase pieces with clear bases" unless all the others have clear. I always thought wobbler chases were chrome base.

No mention of the Chase Vader Tie Fighter? Does that get counted in the 55 or is it considered different as one of two Wobblers Rides and the only one with a chase?

It did get counted and I wasn't planning on mentioning the rides but I'll add them to the main post now. Thank you for your suggestion.

I need to check my set but I think it was after the 2nd wave. A bunch of the first 1 or 2 waves were rereleases in the blue boxes, and some a 2nd time in the newer boxes.

Thanks for catching that. This was released in July for SDCC (along with Holo Vader), at the same time as Vader and the regular Clone Trooper!
