It don't mean a thing if it ain't got a spring. Come inside and chat about Funko Wacky Wobblers (bobble heads, for the less sophisticated).

"UNRELEASED" Battle Damage Mark II Color Reject Wobbler

Postby AleX-Men » Sun Dec 27, 2020 5:55 pm

Yo,
I was using the wayback machine to look at an older item on gemini collectibles, and I stumbled upon something peculiar under the rarities section (this if from a link leading to the gold kiss vinyl invader in 2012). Here's what the site reads (copied and pasted):

FUNKO IRON MAN MARK II BATTLE DAMAGED WACKY WOBBLER - NEVER MADE
IRON MAN MARK II BATTLE DAMAGED WACKY WOBBLER
THIS IS A COLOR REJECT THAT WAS NEVER MADE
NEW IN IRON MAN BOX
APPROXIMATELY 7 INCHES TALL

I cannot upload an image, as there is no image of it on the wayback machine from the link I used. I would accept this is an unreleased pop, though there is some conflicting info. The battle damaged Mark 2 grey scale did end up releasing, as a Costco exclusive (the name of it is even on the sticker). Here is a link to an image of it:

https://www.pinterest.cl/pin/8266217065 ... LIENT_ID(_)&mweb_unauth_id=%7B%7Bdefault.session%7D%7D&from_amp_pin_page=true

There's even an old forum post with someone talking about how they saw it at the store, as well as the two other Costco iron man exclusives:

viewtopic.php?t=19527

This is all long before I started collecting, so I am not sure how this wobbler's release was handled. Was it a mistake? Is this a prototype? Is it different from the Costco release? Any help would be great. I will also provide a link to this 2012 site (you will have to wayback the link and go to page one of the funko rarities section for it to work). Thanks JAFO for making this original link 8 years ago, as I may have not been able to make this crazy post without the link lol :

I can’t remember the whole story about it or how many are even made or who has it. There’s a couple extremely rare Iron Man out there.

Abe is more knowledgeable about this than I am and maybe this is the piece.

Yes. 12 people do. :D. ;-)


LOL! Don't be that way, Mickey! :D

To add to this- I own a 1/1 Iron Man wobbler that is one of the more special pieces in my IM collection.

Yep that’s the one! Thanks! Now I just have to find out how this differed from the gemini one.

So the piece on the top left is the “color reject.” I did not originally purchase this item but it was passed along to me by Poncho Pete. The piece in the box is the production piece and the top right is the chase.

This wasn’t the piece that I mentioned I have that is 1/1. It’s another reject I have :D

So sorry MLF, the image is not showing. Is there another way to see the color reject?

I don’t know what happened to the box. I didn’t ask/care since it came from a legit collector. There is a slight variation in color from the production pieces so I don’t doubt it being legitimate.

The other reject is a Mark 2 chase. I’ll have to dig it out of the shelf to take a picture tomorrow. It’s a really cool piece that is hard to explain. You’ll need to see a picture.

Thank you so much! These really should be added to the price guides!

What a good read and nice set of Iron Man. Interesting though how they have 2 different bases. :freddy3:

Hey Mark, did you by any chance happen to find the reject mark 2 chase? If not, I do not intend on rushing you and I wish that you take your time.
