So few new Wobblers?

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got a spring. Come inside and chat about Funko Wacky Wobblers (bobble heads, for the less sophisticated).

I have just one wobble in my collection. An old Storm one. Does the Black Panther in the Marvel Collector box count?

I'm thinking about getting a couple of the cereal icons to add to my collection but I'm running out of shelf room pretty soon. Decisions, decisions.

The new ones look so much better than the old ones. I would collect them but I'm sticking to just Pops, Dorbz, and minis
283 Pops, 5 Pops Rides, 7 9" Pops, 11 Keychains, 7 Minis, 23 Mystery Minis, 19 Pint Sized Heroes, 39 Dorbz, 5 Dorbz Rides, 4 Dorbz XL, 1 Mega Dorbz

Collecting since 2015: "A couple that collects together, stays together."

After watching the Making Fun doc, I really wish more wacky wobblers were still being made. The original wacky wobblers, not the new versions. Maybe they will make a comeback someday.

FUNKO please bring back the original Wacky Wobblers. I just started to collect them and only trades to get them.

I think a lot of collectors, after seeing the documentary, have a desire to see those original wobblers come back. Funko surely knows this. I would not be surprised if we saw something in the near future

Same here. I wish I paid more attention to some of the wobblers when I first started collecting pops several years ago.

Always such a tough choice to decide what can fit. If only there was more room in our displays.

I've been collecting PoPs for the better part of 4 years and I just bought my first wobbler last week.

Image

I now have to get the rest of the Spider-Man ones (I tracked down a few and am waiting for those to come in before I hunt the others), and I'll add them to my "Spidey shrine" lol. I wish they would do more as well but in the older style. The term 'cutesy' really hit the nail in the head with how the new ones look, unless they have masks on (i.e, Vader, Boba, & Black Panther as previously mentioned).

I do think it's a bit odd that there aren't many newer Wobblers. They aren't exactly my cup of tea, but I was really hoping we would see some new Wobbler renditions of some older characters (El Diablo and Bone Daddy come to mind) and at least a new Freddy one... Was really hoping for a new Freddy Wobbler for the 20th anniversary of Funko :(

I prefer the old style too. It's good they are still making them though. Maybe with it being the 20th anniversary they will release some of the older style Wacky Wobblers.

I agree. The older wobblers just have that nice old school feel. The new ones feel a little more animated to me. Not a huge fun

I would definitely love a comeback for classic wobblers. Theres so much potential for all the new media that is constantly pushing out now, in terms of comics, different ad icons, directors, and movies. Not only that, but even remolds of the past wobblers, and the potential for new characters like el diablo, or bone daddy. Im ready for more, they are absolutely cool.

While I don't think we need a Wacky Wobblers revival I'm surprised they don't put out a few exclusives a year for fans (and not the current Wobbler brand but the original designs). It was Funko's bread and butter for over a decade before Pops caught on and it's interesting that it's not much of a thing they do or represent
It doesn't matter the amount you have or length you collected, but that you're happy with what you own

Current Goal: Get The Three Caballeros created as Pops, Dorbz or Vynl (One year until the 75th anniversary!)
