Paka Paka - Fruit Bats

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

They are more of my lady’s thing, but it’s been fun trying to get her the whole set!

I actual love the idea of pre-order. Its like order and forget it. Then when it does show up its like Christmas. It is awesome.


I totally relate, because I forget I ordered stuff all the time


I'm usually on top of it, but lately I'm ordering so much online that I've forgotten a few things. Of course, when I'm anxiously waiting for something (ahem....funko shop....fruit bats....!), those I CAN'T forget!


I’m starting to have the issue of preordering stuff I forgot I preordered allready! LoL

My last rage purchase has significantly dropped in price, so now I have buyers remorse! So for now I'll wait and see what my order brings me.

Go do your rage buying soon though, get it out of the way so I can be the next one, if I need it! lol

I’m going to wait on my case I ordered from a third party, if no dragon there...I have plenty of Paka trades to before diving into ebay. I need to make a move though, because the black soup dragon is coming now too!

I really wish the funkoshop would sell cases, even if they were at retail. Because I’d know I’d get atleast one hyper rare

My shipment should be here Thursday, though of course I'm hoping they get a boost from the Santa Ana winds we've been having / are going to have again! Fly upon the wind, little fruit bats! (and all my other stuff!)

re: the black Soup dragon - all yours! That line is cute, but it's not calling to me. Good luck with it!

:cheers: I just clicked over to check tracking, and now it says Tuesday! Never thought I'd be grateful for those devil winds! lol

You don't need to rage buy at the moment, you got what you needed on Friday! And it'll get hand delivered on Wendnesday! lol

Of course, once Wednesday hits, who knows?? Otherwise, hold off on the rage until the Soup pakas drop! \:D/

No wind boost for you? I'm not sure I trust that Tuesday estimate, but I know I like it! Really hoping I get a good variety, fingers crossed! [-o<

That would be nice. I've gotten a case before from my local Gamestop and ordered online from other places like BBTS and EE, however I agree direct from Funko would be convenient.

I’m not very good at the shake test, but I bet all the dragons have the same weight if one were to use a scale. Which I can’t bring myself to do lol

Sorry to hear that, I usually try to find trades in that situation to fill the gaps. I did wind up with duplicate dragon fruits in my funkoshop order too :/

Absolutely need to - don't want to miss out on that!

Got a great surprise today when I got an email saying that my order was out for delivery! :cheers:

And then I opened my paka balls. So much fail.... ](*,) 3 were duplicates within the order itself, and only 4 were Bats I didn't have already have. SIGH. So many dragonfruit bats!

Not giving up yet, but a bit bummed tonight!


Also wouldn't it be nice if they had the Zoup there tomorrow?!


Super cool if that happened! Do we have an estimated release date for them yet?

Sorry to hear that, I usually try to find trades in that situation to fill the gaps. I did wind up with duplicate dragon fruits in my funkoshop order too :/


Yeah, I'll be putting together a trade post soon. Gonna wait to see if I have any luck with my next (last!) order before I go out to the corners of the interwebs!

You don't need to rage buy at the moment, you got what you needed on Friday! And it'll get hand delivered on Wendnesday! lol

Of course, once Wednesday hits, who knows?? Otherwise, hold off on the rage until the Soup pakas drop! \:D/


Speaking of, need to order my zoup paka case!

My local Hot Topic had a full case. I was able to get the only one want which is the paka paka dragon using the shake test.


I’m not very good at the shake test, but I bet all the dragons have the same weight if one were to use a scale. Which I can’t bring myself to do lol


lol Yeah, a scale would definitely help. The dragon is usually the heaviest and makes a louder sound during a shake. There is no guarantee though. ;-)

Well, no December to this point.

In the meantime though, surprised to see how few of the Fruit Bats were in stock at Hollywood today! Someone obviously got there before me and snagged a bunch! Did buy 5 - 2 new, and 3 duplicates. Down to needing the 1/36s, and the Kiwi bat. Not too bad! Hope is still alive!
