I’m shocked that there wasn’t a single dorbz at sdcc or fundays.

It was weird that fundays didnt have the games as you walk in and no dorbz. All they had were the tiki mouths that you put in your coin and got your proto.

I do feel at least one dorbz could have been done but they don’t seem like best sellers so I understand

I was really surprised we didn’t see the Can O’ Corn. That’s the first year I haven’t seen people chugging corn :(

I could only assume because the games are where the biggest backlogs occur and people feel like they miss getting items. As opposed to if they just give you all the items upfront and give you more time to socialize.

Pretty sad.



Dorbz have slowly been drained from the system. I’m not losing hope but it seems year after year less are being announced or even produced.

I honestly thought Dorbz were done for, but then they released Toy Story ones. You never know. I bet there will be one for NYCC.

My table and I were positive that we were gonna see at least one dorbz at fundays. Can’t believe not one. Nothing in Brian’s announcements for the upcoming year either

The tiki wall where you put in your coin and received a proto was a huge mess. They had to keep stopping the line because of the overcrowding. It took forever to get it going again.

Yeah that was sad, Can O corn is totally a Fundays tradition. Hopefully it is back next year.

Hopefully they keep giving away protos as I'm sure there is pressure to cut costs as the company grows and has been public for a longer period of time now. Stockholders may start to expect a greater return on investment and may think if people sell protos on the secondary market for so much, why does the company not do that themselves? Or they may start to 3D print protos and give them as gifts to executives or employees.

I don't think the last few cons have been that great. Especially with the star wars line. I feel they are resorting to chrome and new products.

I hope they dont go that route. I hope they continue to keep the customers happy, because I tell you I love the protos I've gotten at fundays.

They didn't do any Dorbz last year did they? I mean, they put a Stranger Things Dorbz in everyones bag, but no Freddys or anything like that. Not even any Dorbz released for SDCC 2018 or 2019.

While it sucks there was no Dorbz exclusives or announcements (and it was a weird Fundays too, apparently no can 'o corn?) I am not worried in the slightest about this line. Brian still posts about it on Twitter, more GOT should be coming soon enough and they are doing their part to sell. The Batman set sold out a while ago and that didn't even have a limited number to them, and 4 sets composing of 16 Dorbz have sold out on the shop. That's a nice amount

We'll see some soon enough, want to see some con exclusives again next year though. Please promise that

The last Freddy Dorbz Funday exclusives have plummeted in price. Good for those who didn't get them when they were pricier.
