Man I'd love to see this done, I really am not confident it's going to happen. I'll give it to SDCC and if something doesn't happen I'll consider it dead. At least Dick as a standalone figure needs to happen

I can say with confidence that the Power Rangers line is done, but horror should be happening around spooky season again. Pennywise was amazing but we have more that can get made
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!)

Agreed, MMPR is done unless they move onto the next series would I would love but somehow don't feel confidant they'll do. Pennywise was great but before him was Chucky, now I'm curious who they might make if they move forward

I agree about Captain Marvel, the Dorbz are irresistable to me while I only care for a couple of the exclusive pops from the movie.

I’m pretty sure it’s just the NFL line. But some lines aren’t exactly heroes and should also be called dorbz minis IMO

as others have said... haven't seen funko putting out as many dorbz as they used to, which to me suggests that funko might be scaling down a bit, as they realise that their dorbz dont seem to be doing too well, which is a shame, cause they're quite cool, in my opinion

I personally love dorbz, but run into so many that seem to despise them and their cute smiling faces. I think they don't do well overall in the long term so Funko is going to put that money elsewhere

I'm sad to less and less being made, would be cool if Dorbz became a limited edition line, almost like only exclusives came out

My thoughts exactly, they have been making more and more limited to 2500-5000 that means it's really for us diehard collectors that appreciate the brand. Easier to complete sets, and cheaper to get some of those older rares. I went from apx 50 Dorbz to over 500 now in the last 3 months, why because you can get them so much easier and cheaper.

For those saying the prices are the same I'm not sure where they are shopping. I can get most at Gamestop or Hot Topic for $7, and Pop! figures are always $11-$15. I also don't like what I'm seeing on the Pop! collectors scene the collectors are a bunch of whiney crybabies, and self entitled sometimes. Also the flippers and hoarders of chases and exclusives is just too much and makes collecting no fun. I was worried for Dorbz with the flocked Winnie the Pooh and Tigger selling out so fast to flippers, but most of the other releases have stayed in stock and at reasonable prices.


I would love to see 500 Dorbz. That’s amazing! I just went past 500 pops. I love the Dorbz but they definitely feel dead.

I'd have to agree. Very little popularity around them and they're shelf warmers even when in limited numbers. Pops are only a few dollars more and are bigger and have better detail. Plus, the sculpt is very boring.

I really wish the dorbz weren’t being scaled as much because, it seems less and less people are interested in them as they used to be.

I'm going to be honest, we went through the two toy fairs and the (surprisingly small) Shazam reveal without a single Dorbz release and even with it said Dorbz are Funko Shop and potentially convention exclusives only I'm getting worried the line is done competently. Pair that with people saying it's done from hearing from different places and it's a little worrisome

I think it is just very limited - down to convention exclusives or Funko shop exclusives by this point. I think Dorbz are done with wide releases sadly.

I am both sad and not surprised at the news, Dorbz didn’t become the next thing for Funko so it makes sense they’re limiting them now.

I'd say if they aren't completely done yet then they will be soon. But what do I know? Just my assumption based on the lack of Dorbz shown off at Toy Fair and the lack of them in recent announcements. I quite enjoyed Dorbz especially since we'd sometimes get characters in Dorbz form we've never seen done by Funko or we'd get Dorbz versions of characters long retired in Pop! form. But I know a good amount of people HATED them with a passion which is a shame. I really wanted to see the whole Wacky Races line up in Dorbz Ridez.

I swear Brian said somewhere that Dorbz were not going away completely, but that they would be sporadically released and mostly on the Funko website/HQ store or for conventions.
