BigM wrote:This topic comes up fairly frequently but Funko usually doesn’t announce the end of a line. It was sad when Wacky Wobblers basically came to end a couple years ago,which is the product that kept Funko alive for 13+ years, but they didn’t come out and say that they’re done. They do random drops of numbered pieces time to time on the shop (which I like and wish they would do more with other non pop items).

Dorbz are cool and this is not a bad time to be a fan of them because you can get many for cheap. I’ve been trying to get more of them recently myself. Just because we don’t get weekly announcements of them doesn’t mean they’re completely gone...yet and if that’s the case, then that’s ok. Disappointing but Funko knows that POP is the current king right now and they’ll continue to put them out until they stop selling.


Well put! I am also loving going back and finding cool and rare Dorbz. I could see them being brought back for cons too maybe. Or for Fundays. Dorbz had a good run and are one of my favorite Funko products. :freddy4: :freddy4: :freddy4:

I love the Dorbz I own but I only buy the ones I want. So I would miss them if they were retired.

If it is the end of dorbz then they had a good run, I thought the ones that they released were cute but sadly some people didn't think that it was the case.

I’m going to miss Dorbz. Shame they are going to kill them just because it’s not a huge success.

But 5 Star is retiring? Lol what? That lines whole existence confused me right from the start but wow already? They probably made like what 20 of them at most? Why even waste time making them then if you’re just going to give up because they aren’t a MASSIVE success. I doubt they’ll ever get anything as big as pops.

Hadn't liked them before, but I'm starting to warm up to them. They're just happy, smiley little figures. But it does seem that it's been quite a while since new ones have been released. Time will tell.

For the main lines I collect, I look for both.

Either way, I hope Dorbz do continue!

They were clearanced out in Utah stores long ago. The only thing you can find are Iron Heart at an FYE store that is going out of business. At least 50 of them, no joke, $1 each.

I like a lot of the Dorbz and only buy what I like. A couple of years ago I got a Freddy Funko dorbz proto. And yes I definitely still have it. I like almost everything Freddy. Unfortunately there are a few out there I just can't afford so I enjoy seeing pictures :freddy4: :freddy4:
