Star Wars Dorbz ??

Postby ocwankenobi » Mon Dec 03, 2018 1:32 pm

I can't even find the original post to ask this question.

Yes there is not a recent movie right now. But its not like that has stopped other lines from being created or continued. Are vinyls and minis and other lines diluting the interest ?

What do people think or know ?

Dorbz are particularly hard because of the fact that the head is not a bobblehead. Notice for every other line they are bobbleheads? That's because they are required to for licensing reasons. It appears they couldn't for Dorbz, and the workaround is to make every one Disney Shop exclusives (or the ones that were D23). So really if we get more is up to if Disney wants to make another wave for their stores
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. I don’t think the dorbz are as popular as when they first launched. Many are ending up on clearance or at second hand retailers and thrift stores.

It seems like for a while people were really into them but the hype train just slowed down over time. I don't own many but I like the ones I've got. Kinda unfortunate.

Considering Disney no longer has any Dorbz online or in store (except for Jolly Roger on clearance), I don't have my hopes high for more SW.

What's more popular... Dorbz or VYNL? I agree Dorbz are fading some.

Star Wars is awesome however!

I thought I read somewhere that the Dorbz line was dead, aside from a few (preannounced) lines.

I hope this isn’t true...I really like Dorbz and loved the Star Wars line (Vader being my favourite)

I hope they'll keep releasing a few each year at least. Was hoping for a porg dorbz, and a wave for each film. Ewok dorbz, more characters, everything. Heck, I'd even buy a Jar Jar dorbz. Honestly, the SW dorbz line is my all time favorite dorbz line, and one of my favorite Funko lines ever.

I'm glad they haven't killed Dorbz completely but definitely annoyed the Star Wars line in particular is sort of...small.

There's a few SW characters I'd still love to see as Dorbz, but yeah,it seems like they're making fewer across all lines.

Like everyone has said.. Dorbz are just on the decline. Pop has SUCH a power grip on the collectible market that it seems like Funko is failing to create anything else with equal popularity...

They just need to come out with some really cool an highly exclusive dorbz to grab some more interest.

How about a Rocket firing Boba Fett? LE 500 at Star Wars Celebration. That would be awesome.

I really don't understand all the hate for Solo, I thought it was an enjoyable action film. But we all like different things, case in point: Dorbz. ;)

Yes to each their own. But I swear when I was in the theater I had a hard time seeing the movie because it was so dark lol.

I think the main thing that bothered me was how he was named solo. I thought that was ridiculous. But regardless of my personal beliefs. I do think the general opinion of it had a negative effect to the Star Wars universe. Unless I am mistaken, hurt me personally that it negatively affected or put on hold the Obiwan stand alone movie. That devastated me.

Yeah, I was looking forward to more standalone movies. Honestly, I think The Last Jedi had the biggest effect on Solo underperforming. Plus, with the news of the reshoots for Solo and the lackluster previews, I remember thinking it was going to be bad. Maybe that's why I liked it, since I had low expectations?

I also didn't mind The Last Jedi much, my biggest issue was the Leia force-pull and Kylo getting rid of his mask (episode 7 had similar issues with Rey suddenly being better with a lightsaber than Kylo and magically knowing how to use the force at the end). Both films threw away Captain Phasma's role as well.

Back to Dorbz... maybe Funko just needs to do a remake like fans want to do with The Last Jedi? ;)

I don't mind any of the new movies. I loved Rogue One and am forever curious what the reshoots were and what was cut out. If they are going to remake. I would it should start with getting ride of prancing bloated cows in the fields and the lines "are you an angel?"

If they make a K2SO dorbz. I am back on board 100%
