I hope that they aren’t, but I have to say, the emphasis has certainly not been there for a little while. I mean the pop line pays the bills. Trying to catch lightning in a bottle twice is hard.

I wish Funko would be a bit more transparent with Dorbz, and just say they're either dead or just sporadic Funko Shop releases, which seems the case.

Seems like Dorbz will only be made for cons moving forward, too bad :(

I think Funko realize that Dorbz weren’t selling as well as they wanted. So, they had to keep them limited

One thing I’ve noticed about them is their not transparent about anything. They are not very informative or vocal with the fans at all. Hell we didn’t even know if the ECCC exclusives were finished or not.

With that being said I do like Dorbz and would prefer them to not be finished.

Yeah, it really sucks. It gets progressively worse, like no longer sharing vaulted figures; they at least used to do that.

I didn’t even realize they don’t do that anymore. That’s really stupid.

Yeah. I like to wait for commons to try and get them cheaper in a bundle, so it's a bit irritating knowing some could get vaulted at any point.

I have a few left in my collection, but when I downsized not long ago the dorbz were virtually impossible to get rid of even at $1 each at local Pop sale events. If it isn't Pop then most collectors don't seem to care all which is unfortunate.

I really love dorbz. It all started when my son would want to play with his Pop!s and sometimes they would break. Dorbz are a little more sturdy and compact so I suggested he get a Dorbz....fast forward we both love Dorbz and yes I agree they are really cute...and always happy and smiling. My favorite in my collection is the 4 pack of GoT Dragons..They look like they are laughing.. my fav... :freddy4:

I agree with just about all of this but when they have things in their hands I find those to be so fragile, like my Jean Lafoote spoon broke off in the mail a couple of my anime ones with swords broke off. Over all I love dorbz and I hope they keep coming even if it is just a handful a year.

Feels like the 5 star is what is taking over dorbz. I don't see the 5 stars selling so well in stores though.

Lol I can just imagine them ding-dong-ditching and leaving a Dorbz behind. "Stupid teenagers, back in my day we at least left flaming bags of $#!*"

I know I sold like 5 dorbz at a garage sale and got $2 a piece. Yet pops I got $8-$10 each

I only collect the Disney ones, mainly to take OOB. If they make any more, please make more of the classic Disney characters!
