Money talks and I'm sure Dorbz weren't pulling enough weight.

I remember when he said that it was his favorite line there were high hopes it could become as big as Pop did, which unfortunately didn't happen. What's hard to see with Brian is he usually loves getting his very specific characters he's into as figures for all the lines then really just coasts on the rest, so making custom Misers might be more for his love of the Misers then Dorbz. It's also possible he was really into Dorbz then but lost interest in them, that seems more likely to me. I very much understand money talks, but I have a hard time believing with the company making hundreds of millions more per quarter then when Dorbz were at their prime that there's any issue making the really simplistic molds for a couple thousand and selling a few once every few months, especially when the Pez make less profit with a more limited run/more complex head mold and the company spends an insane amount of money on life size figures that aren't even used for the retail stores among other things which are a pure loss

The more I think about it, I think before I go whole hog for all the Fallout Dorbz protos, I want to try and do what I originally wanted to do and get a Fallout proto from each of the release lines. I just need a keychain and a Vynl...oh and a 5 Star, but I've never seen a proto for any of those. Thanks man...you are to blame for my proto habit. LOL

I hope Dorbz aren't going away. Nice balance of cute and simplicity but I think it makes them a bit more creative with the end results. Hope we see some this year.

I absolutely love Dorbz. My master bath is decorated with Bob's Burgers stuff. I had an extra Linda Dorbz so I put her in there and she's just so freaking cute. I have the full Bobs Burgers Dorbz set, Golden Girls, and then other random ones. One of my favorites is Goofy - not only adorable but a good friend of mine gave him to me. :)

Funko definitely seems to have cut back on Dorbz. Hopefully they don't go away permanently.

Hope not, I really love dorbz. They should just make them limited to 500-1000, but I doubt they will do that since Dorbz probably doesn't make them money.

Funko decides they are likely killing off Dorbz, and since then all their cons have been cancelled

I'm not too into the Soda and would prefer the Dorbz. I know Brian said he loves the Soda, so it is the new line that Funko is pushing hard on.

I'm not really digging the Soda designs honestly. I felt the same way about the Vynl, Rock Candy and 5 Star designs. I love Dorbz :(

Maybe it's just me, but I don't know if he has shown as much interest in Sodas as he did Dorbz and especially Pez. It's hard to say but I haven't seen gushing over them outside of the characters he loves yet.

Either way love that line and it won't be the same but it's selling well and will serve to fill some of that hole
