Re: Are Dorbz falling off the Funko Train?

Postby Optimistic » Thu May 23, 2019 8:09 pm

Funko Shop, if you haven't noticed, has been quietly selling out of quite a few Dorbz that were up before

The ones I saw sold out and removed include the Hanna-Barbera 3-pack, Freddy Funko, Jetsons Astro and Elroy 2-pack, He-man 3-pack and Wacky Races Gravel Slag. Maybe more but these are the ones I know sold out and aren't up anymore on the site
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

Getting there, we got Caballeros Loungefly for 2020!

I see Dorbz picking up steam and a few large ones at Fundays may really light the fire for these great collectibles!

That doesn't mean they're not awesome, just means they don't appeal to everyone! Wobbler collectors probably didn't like the idea of Pop when it first came out, and look at them now!


That is true. For me I prefer some of the dorbz to their Pop counterparts..but its mostly because they are so dang cute! :bounce:

Everyone has their cup of tea and dorbz has t always been mine but I have to admit that little by little they have grown on me I wish they made more Its a small world dorbz.

Are dorbZ officially no more? Haven’t seen one released in a very long time. Does this mean there’s not a chance at all?

I honestly don’t think they’re cancelled. There’s still way too many fans/funatics that collects them, IMO. I’m sure there will be a release of some sort soon enough.

With more new lines being announcement, they might be moving on from Dobrz now :/. I feel like the soda figures will replace it. Seems to be getting more attention since they announced the line.

i've noticed that when a new line is coming out we get tons of info and news, but when something is maybe going to be shut down we all just speculate and wonder lol.

i say this fully understanding funkos position in wanting to keep their options open. why say something is gone if you can reserve the right to a. keep ppl wondering and b. bring it back at a later time if you feel its a good opportunity.

I hope this doesn't turn into the "I'm disappointed..." thread that eventually got deleted :-"

Dorbz are cool, hopefully we get more, but if not it is what it is and I'm sure Funko will come out with more cool stuff (see Soda Pops).

Funko has several lines going now, so have some patience and wait for another release. I love them too, so I am hoping they are still gonna have more future releases!

That they didn't even finish the Dorbz Wacky Races Ridez leaves me to assume Dorbz are dead.

I hope the Dorbz line doesn't die out but unfortunately it seems to be heading down that path. They just aren't as popular as pops which is sad.

The Hikari line really was not ever a really sought after item. I bought a few I really liked and still have a few but when I look at them I wonder why I bought them. I think it was the low production #'s :freddy1: :freddy1:
