Stupid Question Time

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).

Stupid Question Time

Postby AshleyWilbanks » Mon May 28, 2018 9:21 am

Viewing various collections, and the new documentary, I see that some have these larger 2-6 foot wobblers or pops in their collections. Are these actually Funko items, or customs? If so were and how did you score them?

They are all Funko items, 20'' Wobblers came out a while ago and were exclusive to I believe Tower Records (Bone Daddy, Count Chocula and El Diablo at least) You can also find others such as Betty Boop, Underdog, Huckleberry Hound,etc. Others were limited and given out at Fundays in the 2000s.
The Pops that are 9" came out when pops were first introduced and sold in retail and Cons, depending on the piece
Now the Retro Freddys that are like 2 feet tall are were given out at SDCC and Fundays in the past and are super limited

This is what I've gathered from when I looked into the pieces myself. Hope it was helpful :)

I have a few of the 20'' wobblers but they were a timely task to get. Depending on what you're looking for, they are more common than others.

You actually have to host the pic elsewhere. Upload it here https://imgbb.com/, then you can copy the provided output and paste it in the box :)

Great info. I didn't know how they were obtained in the past. They would have been an awesome giveaway.

No such thing as a stupid question. I've learned some things from our fellow funatics. O:)
