So few new Wobblers?

Postby PopGoestheJess » Mon Jan 22, 2018 3:13 am

Has Funko given up on Wobblers already? The new ones, I mean.

What was the most recently announced...Last Jedi? That was Septemberish. It's been a while. There were none for Thor Ragnarok. None for GotG 2. No Holland Spidey. None so far for Black Panther. None for Justice League (what in the even...). None for Wonder Woman.

That's a lot of big block busters with no new Wobblers for any of them EXCEPT the Target Iron Man (which I haven't seen yet). So, what is going on? Why is Funko neglecting the Wobblers? Are they done?


PS. This is not a rant. I'm just curious.

Unfortunately, I don't think they sell very well. But i really was looking forward to that Target Iron Man one, but no idea as to when its going to come out, or whether it will still come out at all. If they had Black Panther wobblers, i would probably buy into that. But i know there are a whole lot of people who would rather just have the pops.

They just showed the Gladiator Hulk with the Marvel LTF reveals. It was the only one. Hulk. But not the title character. Okay.

I don't know about anyone else but i am not a fan of the look of the new wobblers. I have the Captain America one and it just looks funny with the big eyes. I also just got the Skeletor (Metallic) wacky and I really love it because it looks more like a miniature version of him. The Cap just looks weird to me.

I have 11 of the new ones so far. I'd like more. Hello, Funko. Can we get a Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, unmasked Cap, Black Panther, War Machine, Hawkeye, Superman, Wonder Woman, BTAS Joker and Harley, First Order Storm Trooper, Tie Fighter Pilot and just about everything else that can be made in this style?

Thank You.

I think the new ones are really cute, even the Leia and Jyn Erso although I'm not a Star Wars fan. Unfortunately, they seem to just get kicked around at Target. It really doesn't help that the Target exclusive Iron Man and Batgirl variants never actually made it on to store shelves.

I'm with you. I hate the new style which gives them those Pop!-style heads. I LOVE the old Wobblers and have many. I loved the big "realistic" head and the regular sized "realistic" body. I wish they'd leave the Wobblers alone and let them still be the thing that the company was founded on rather than try to bring them online with looking like Pop!s and newer lines. For the heart of the company, leave the Wobblers be! LOL

I personally am not crazy about the looks of the wobblers either but I would like some more. I need more DC.
At least we're getting the Hulk. Maybe Toy Fair will get us a few more?

Wobblers might take up less space than pops on book shelves since they're skinnier and taller. Some of them do look good and I kind of want to collect some old Wobblers too. I thought the last one I heard people actually hunt for was the ZEA batman wobbler. It's been slow.

So I know they apparently aren't the most popular but I loved my computer sitter wobblers and wisecracks. I feel like the timing could be right for those to make a reappearance, they're cute and funny, I bet Disney ones would do well now.

Ones without the eyes are ok like Vader and Boba Fett, but otherwise I'm not a big fan sad to say. I love the older Wacky Wobblers and wish they'd make a comeback!

The new wobbler designs aren't as appealing to me as older ones. Personally, I enjoy hunting the older ones because they're more fun to find. Most new collectors might not find the appeal. I know I didn't buy my first one until I was collecting funko for two years. Now I seek them out almost as much as Pops.

Feeling the same way. Newer designs just don't do it for me, too cutesy and stylized.

I was hoping for more of these as well but with most of the newer ones being Target exclusives I think this line may be dying. I hope not because I love wobblers.

Just my opinion, but the new "wobblers" are really odd looking and not worthy of me purchasing. I had 2 of them and I gave them instantly to my Niece & Nephew and they said to me "what happened to funko Uncle Kevin? "These are so ugly, can we have some of the older ones?"

I remember seeing some new ones announced in the catalog, but at the same time the places I've walked into that carry the new wobblers. They seem to have the same wobblers in stock for quite some time. I've picked up maybe 2-3 pieces for myself but it doesn't appear to be a very popular line at least from my view.

I had the same question myself about the wobblers. I am thinking that Pops have overshadowed them as the thing to collect, but I am surprised we don't see more of them. If I could only go back in time and pick up the classic wobblers before Funko took off!
