Return of the wacky wobbler ??

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).

Even if the wobblers only showed up at special events, it’s be cool to have some classic style wobblers back.

Old school will always be cool in my book :headbang: Crazy to think people are just discovering all these retro pieces that have been around for so many years :bom:


Same here. I'm a fan of the older stuff so much!

I’m way on board with this. I really want some to add some in my shelves. I have a handful of them but adding more is always a good thing

There are loads more wacky wobblers from Funko’s past than people realize! Even if it never comes back, I’ll still be busy for years trying to complete the checklist lol

Oh I know, I’ve been collecting for a long long time. Just wish I would of picked up more back early on. But new ones would always be welcomed. Have fun adding more

It is a shame the Wobbler phased out just when it did. If it went just a little bit longer I think we would have gotten some very cool Harry Potter Wobblers. I think they would have sold extremely well.

Exactly! They could have made a huge sub-collection out of this franchise. I can imagine well over 50 Wobblers. Oh well. ](*,)

That Harry Potter idea is a great one! I think those would've worked really well! I agree it would be cool to see them return through conventions or other smaller-distributions. Maybe Fundays?

THIS! I've been picking up older Marvel Wobblers and I love the retro style of it. Definitely want to pick up more but agree that I'll be busy trying to get all the ones I want

You never know, but Funko seems to move on from old series pretty firmly. With the development of all the new lines ir seems unlikely we will see reboots in the near future.

It’s crazy but I was at FYE tonight and they actually had a few Wacky Wobblers on the shelf. Super weird to see them but also super awesome.

I have to agree, but it would be a nice surprise if we got an exclusive at this upcoming SDCC. I’m sure it would sell out with no problem. lol

Would certainly love to see a specific variant made each year at Fundays, given to everyone in attendance! Maybe it could relate to the theme each year or a specific pop culture character! :)

I was talking to my friend the other day, and I mentioned how most people collect Funko for nostalgic reasons and how “nostalgia” ties into products just as much as licenses. I wonder if they would ever capitalize on this by bringing back Wacky Wobblers for the lovers of older Funko. I agree with a lot of this thread when people mention bringing them back for Fundays and conventions. The wobbler itself basically seems like another nostalgic license at this point, so bringing them back would be popular for that reason alone.

I totally agree with what you are saying Austin! I have thought the same thing it would be cool to see them bring back the wobbler line! I think we were talking about how cool it would be for them to have a convention just around old school fun! That would be awesome to me! I would love to see some new Freddy Funko Wobbler's =D> =D>

I know there’s a market for them to come back but idk if it will realistically happen or not (plus the market is not huge). I think doing small runs on the Funko shop or cons would be the best way to do it. The wobbler line from a few years ago didn’t really do well from what I guess based on how few licenses and lifespan of them so I’m not sure if Funko would go back to making more of these. Plus I don’t think they’ve ever retired a line and went back to making it.

I’m good for catching up on previously released pieces. There’s dozens that I want so I am ok with a (hopefully) temporary pause on wobblers.
